Hi there

I have recently purchased a secondhand Minelab Sovereign XS-2Pro and have been venturing out when I get a chance to learn how to detect for some coins.
I was wondering if anyone could advise of what type of Head Phones i should purchase for this detector?
It's got a 1/4" jack so I can't just plug in a set of normal Head Phones.

I was thinking of purchasing a set of Minelab UR-30 Headphones or should i just save the money and put it towatds a newer machine for when i can afford to upgrade.

Thanks

Still one of the BEST detectors EVER made thumbsup
and my preference for beach hunting
You could just get an adaptor (1/8-1/4) from jaycar
Thats what i use for mine wink

Heres a couple of links of mine you could look through

Hey Lads

Thanks for your input much appreciated, I'll go and buy that socket adaptor now, as it's a heaps cheaper alternative, than a set of Headphones, you lads are ausome.

Danny13 - I've just finished reading the info on the links you attached, I'm quite surprised that the Minelab Soverign 20yr old technology is still highly regarded as good machine.

Sandta - I haven't used it on the beach yet, i assume i just change the sensitivity from auto to beach, not sure what the difference will be.

Is there a particular reason as to why it's such a good detector for the beach?

Thanks heaps

Any headphones with a 1/4" jack will work. The UR-30's will be fine, but you want something a bit more concealed for when it's windy down at the beach.

Thanks Jaros
Looking forward to going out and learning the art of prospecting, and hopefully being rewarded with some valuable finds.

Cheers
