Default received my Equinox 800 today - question

I received the nox 800 today. it came with wireless headphones and the WM-08 transmitting module. which has the better latency speed, the bluetooth headphones or the WM-08?

I wonder why they were included in the box? Seems like I don't need them unless i am missing something.

To my ears the headphones sound like a Hi-Fidelity stereo system compared to the Garrett standard headphones and Z-Ylnk modules.

Just got it yesterday and charged it last night. You can bet I will be out today playing with it. Oh, one other thing on a tip, I found it from a dealer in one day and received it two days later. Yes, it is an Equinox 800. There is a secret to getting it fast and not waiting 2-3 months. I will post that in a separate post.

Model wm08 is faster. Wi-stream.

No difference. The WM-08 is just dead weight. You can ship it to me if you are tired of looking at it.
