Wireless Headset Build-Project Turtle Beach X32
Quote this message in a reply
I came up with the ideal wireless headsets a few years ago that I used on my computer, TV and xbox 360. Sound is fantastic, build my first metal detector experimental pair using some X31's. They were on 2.4khz. I de-modified them because I liked them so much on my computer. Eventually sacked them and upgraded to the X32's. These are fantastic. They are dual band 2.4/5khz.
Decided again to upgrade to the X42 and use one of 2 sets of X32's for another metal detector project. Just like the X31's, they work great, no lag.

I built them for my AKA Berkut and posted a tutorial at

Cool!! I've tried the little FM transmitter in the phono socket tuned to a blank frequency and then tuned a little Sony Walkman to that frequency and used earbuds. It works okay with no lag time but the FM transmitter only holds about an hour or so charge and you end up being plugged in with the Koss's eventually. What you have there looks like a great idea. I've got a set of Plantronics on the PC for quiet listening but I've never been able to figure out how to use them with the USB 2.0 transmitter. The charge on those headphones lasts a good 6 hours and they're now about 4 years old. I've never been able to find a USB female to 1/4" phono adapter. Got any sources for such if it even exists at all?

Not sure what you are doing with it.
Is the USB being used for power or audio?

The USB transmitter device looks like a flash drive that I plug into a USB port on the front of the PC. It then transmits the audio to the headphones. I used to use it as a phone too but only to make calls because I'm not around the computer enough to receive them. So my thought was to get an adapter which was USB 2.0 female to a male 1/4" phono plug. Now the question remains that the little transmitter device is powered by the USB slot, as a little blue light comes on when it is plugged in, so I'm thinking that the phono receptacle on the back of the SE Pro armrest won't have enough power to operate the transmitter. Or would have to have some kind of battery encased in the adapter to make it function. I think that such a device would work if somebody would make one. I've looked all over the place and as far as I can see none exist.

Here's a real rough sketch of what I'm describing.

My transmitter is using the USB for power that's all which is 5 volts.

There are other wires in that USB cable for (data) audio, separate from the power wires. Which your computer uses to send the audio and data  to your transmitter.

The Turtle beach uses a separate input for audio and uses USB only for power which is 5 volts. Actually it has two audio inputs, you could hook up your Ipod, to the second one  and listen to music while detecting or plug in your cell phone so when your wife calls, there will be no excuse you didn't hear the phone ring....LOL
And if you left the boom mike on, you could plug the optional mike cord into the headset and the other end into your cell phone. When your wife calls, you can talk while you hunt.... Turtle Beach X32 has some good options.

Any audio speaker jack from a detector does not produce voltage anywhere close to being usable to power any device.

Thanks for sharing guys! I guess that is the way to go for summer hunting? Or do you use this setup all of the time?

I probably wouldn't use them in very cold below freezing temps, batteries lose power. Always keep a wired pair handy in the car and or extra batteries as back-ups. You just never know.

Will see this year if I feel the need to go back to wired headphones....
