Default Vibration for Minelab Equinox 600/800

Hello, I am looking for a solution on how to vibrate the Equinox 600/800 detector for a deaf person who will use it underwater. As you know, a deaf person wears hearing aids that are not waterproof and cannot be immersed under water, and in these headphones he is not able to hear the signals, too much hearing loss is about 95dB.

I did a few attempts with a small amplifier and vibration motor from an old cell phone, but there are problems:

- after connecting the system to the Nox800 on the cable, the motor makes a slight buzzing noise but does not react to the metal signal in the coil,

- after connecting the system to the WM08 wireless module, the vibration works great on signals, but unfortunately after the detector is submerged under water, it loses the wireless connection.

- if I connect the headphone (computer) cable to the Noxa800 and at the end of the handset (the signal is heard in the headphones) I cut the cable and solder it to the system, vibration works great on the signals.

Why is it that the vibration does not work directly on the cable and it works through the headphone cable?
Is there anyone on the forum who will cover this topic?

One more thing. The deaf person uses an induction loop instead of headphones, which works with the hearing aid above the water and on the ground.
This loop connected to the detector via the cable is perfect, but when it is connected to the WM08, a buzzing can be heard in the background. How to do it to eliminate interference?

I have Nokta Makro Simplex + and the vibration works fine, but not everything is found.

In addition, someone has the vibration done, the electronics did him but there is no contact with him.

That's a tough one, and I'm nowhere near educated enough to give a valid response. The only thing I can think of would be to use a diving pinpointer like this:Name:  41xsSGMYbBL._AC_SY1000_.jpg
