AN ALTERNATIVE WAY of HEARING the EQUINOX SIGNALS
In 2015 Stephen Hunter was my guest and he made a blog post entitled ‘Advice on Using Hearing Aids Whilst Metal Detecting.’ You can see it HERE.
With the arrival of the Minelab Equinox metal detector an alternative way of hearing the signals produced by this machine has been devised by my friend Randy Dee and is well worth a look.
Randy is almost completely deaf and cannot manage without his hearing aids. Recently he bought a couple of Phonak FM Receiver shoes for use with his Phonak aids and I later bought a Phonak Roger FM wireless transmitter so as to hear music and television direct to the hearing aids. Than he had a brainwave.
He connected his Minelab Equinox WM08 wireless unit with the Phonak Roger FM transmitter and paired the WM08 unit with his Equinox then with the Phonak wireless transmitter with his Phonak hearing aids. Low and behold, the Equinox signals came belting through spot on and with loads of volume. See photographs below.
Randy – I also wear hearing aids … but I’ve never thought about trying to do what you have mentioned. Thanks for sharing this and I will certainly give it a go … Chubbs
