Default Neat trick with the Nox 800

My grandson is 7 I want to introduce him to metal detecting. We will be hunting a park next to the river and a 4 lane road with heavy traffic. It will drown out the more subtle tones using the external speaker.

So I found out that I can let him use my Trond wireless earphones and I use a wired pair of earphones. Works perfectly.

He is my digging buddy and pinpointer so he gets the wireless set. Me I am just the swinger and I can deal with the wired set.

I presume you could do the same thing with the wireless headphones that come with the Nox?

Many owners malign them, sell them or just don't use them, but I have two WM08 Wi Stream receivers just for the reason you are describing and more. I can hear what a newbie is detecting with their detector and give them some tips or I can like you, share one detector with operator/digger and nobody will get tripped up by being wired to the detector. Too bad that you can't use Bluetooth and Wi Stream at the same time or have more than one Bluetooth receiver connected. You can have up to 4 WM08s connected to one detector however....
