Default Visual target I.D.

What detectors have very good visual target I.D. My friend has significant hearing lose and is wondering what detector might improve his hunting chances. Looking upwards of $1000 to spend.

The easiest display to read IMO would be the Whites VX3 or V3i.

If the mentioned detectors above might be too much for him, the MXT isn't a bad choice either.

Default Hearing Loss

He might want to check out the VIBROPHONE by treasure products, their sight
http://www.treasureproducts.com


The Vibra-Phone 280 lets you replace sound with Vibration. •Don't like wearing headphones?
•Difficult to hear tones and whistles?
•Need to hear ambient sounds?
Then the Vibra-Phone 280 is for you!

The Vibra-Phone 280 takes the tone that you would normally hear in your detectors headphones and converts it into vibrations. It works with most common metal detectors with a 1/4" headphone jack. No modifications or special tools are needed.

Just simply clip the Vibra-Phone 280 to your metal detector and plug it into the headphone jack in place of your normal headphones. Turn the Vibra-Phone 280 on and you're ready to go!! Made in the USA.

Note:
Vibra-Phone works with most all common detector models except Minelab and Fisher.
