Default Waterproof Earbuds for Equinox

I prefer to wear earbuds in warm weather and don’t like being tethered to my detector. I really like the versatility that the wireless module offers, but the 1/8” plug isn’t waterproof unless you build your own a connector. I bought a pair of waterproof earbuds and added the waterproof connector. This did not require any wiring. I just removed the pins that were installed in the connector, then drilled a hole large enough to accommodate the 1/8” jack, then used epoxy to fill the entire cavity. The cable has a 1/8” near the top so I can change the buds out if needed. I put a piece of heat shrink over that connection to keep it dry.

I have used this setup in the water with no problems. If the module goes dead during a hunt I can plug directly into the detector but that is not desirable for me.

What brand ear buds are those you used? How do they sound?
