Not gonna do it mate. This is a Wireless Tx - Rx kit from audio source to headphones, i.e the SCD2300.

If you use it on the GPX, the Tx plugs to the battery, the Rx to the phones. You still have the battery cable. smile

The only way to get wireless on a GPX is to place the battery on the control box, then wireless the audio to you from it.

Yes, used the Quest wire free mate on the QED until it was recently sold. Very good piece of kit and quite cheap compared to the Garret version.

It holds a battery charge all day long and is quick to recharge. Has good volume control. Plug whatever headphones or earbuds into them that you like.

The only downside is that you can't use the transmitter to transmit directly to any set of wireless headphones - it has to go to the receiver first and the headphones plugged into the receiver. But it still gets you wireless from the detector.

Or there is the version that has a transmitter to a proprietary set of headphones. http://phasetechnical.com.au/product/qu … eadphones/

Or the Lite version http://phasetechnical.com.au/product/qu … eadphones/

Nenad sells them. thumbsup

Quest Wirefree Mate is excellent, great battery life and quick recharge.

I use it with deep-insertion in-ear-monitors (etymotic brand). Great noise-cancellation and despite the things going seriously deep into your ear canal, they are super comfortable - I forget they are in.

The etymotics are also excellent for listening to and producing music, some of the most detailed and neutral IEMs on the market. But they stay with the detector kit usually smile

I am switching to a Detectronics Busy B DBV battery kit:

So you have a lightweight battery strapped to the control box, and it has an integrated wireless transmitter. The kit comes with a receiver like the Quest unit, and you supply your own headphones.

Allows you to be totally wire-less from the detector. Cannot stand the curly cable.
