Thanks, rocker. He used to add the GST right at the end, & confuse everybody. ;)

OK all you Tesoro owners, which would be the best headphones to use - I have a set of Sennhieser 32ohm but the volume is very low, tried another no name set also 32ohm but volume is very low on them as well. Should I be using 8ohm ones? Would they be louder because of the lower impedance? :-\
The 32ohm ones are ok on my Whites E tracker.

what model are your senna...

you could have the wrong type that need a amp to drive them ..meaning they need more power to drive them to get full benifit . You could look at getting a signal enhancer or a mini amp for the head set you have ..

forgot to add this ... if u go low ohms u wont hear a thing . Go below 20 ohms you need a amp ... higher is better . Impedance from 20 - 30000

also its best to take metal detector and test out different headsets . Use a coin to air test the sensitivity of the headsets and loadness . Everyone has a different hearing ability .

Hi!
I got the Cibola last year and bought a set of headphones from Dick Smith (32 ohms).
As these had no volume control, I built my own volume control box (circuit quite easy) which I have Velcro on to the shaft. Headphones plug into volume control box which in turn plugs into jack plug receptacle on the Cibola. All seems to work fine, with various volume(s). 
The only thing it's having trouble with is finding that gold ring!!!!!!!!!!!  Cheers

Purchased a set of RPG headphones(via Ebay) with volume on each ear, they haven't arrived yet, but I believe they are actually for metal detectors. At least that's what the ad said ::) Hopefully be here tomorrow. However had a hearing test on Tuesday and failed miserably so it looks like I need a hearing aid :o I might not need headphones after all - just crank up the hearing aid!!!!!!!
