Hey David, at the bottom of the post it says $100. I can't see where you fan order either. I think you send the dude a email. I'm not sure. Hopefully Sven will be able to answer your question for you as he's bought one Happy.

If I was to suggest anything, I saw you said you bought your wife a detector? The ace 250? Do you have one as well? If not and you two continue detecting and you want your own you can get a used garret at pro for almost the price of the ace 250 + the case. And that's water proof and you'll have your own detector to use Happy.

Sven Great information. wondering if you can share how and where to purchase one and how much. Real question is what headphones are they using and how are they hooked up

You can order them from: achubakha@gmail.com

If you watch the videos they are instructional on how to assemble the Ace into the case and how to waterproof the connector on the coil......simple and seems to work with no issues.

Headphones, really you can use any, if you want waterproof, just wire up any supplied with waterproof machines, Garrett, Fisher, White's, Detectorpro......

If your just wading, just use any regular cheap low cost headphones. In 10 years of water hunting, never had a set of headphones pop off my head.
 Headphones that float are waterproof but, not good for diving, they will just float off your head to the surface. Diving headphones such as the White's Garrett's have holes in the ear cups that allow water in to help weight the headphones and equalize water pressure so you don't pop your eardrums. When you come up from diving, the water drains out. Garrett's used to have a threaded screw to fit into the holes to keep water out if just used for wading.

You can make your own waterproof headphones

Or even buy waterproof earbuds etc. http://www.swimoutlet.com/waterproof-ear...viewall=no

I decided not to use the Ace box for one of my water PI's as I prefer under the armcuff mounted control box.

So I will list it for sale $108.00 exactly what I paid for it.
