I think there’s something wrong with my detector.

Great, thanks for that Steve, they are pretty cheap so I may well give them a go when I get round to getting an adapter for the ws4
Cheers

I didn’t know that! I’ve been starting mine up with the coil on the ground and have had no obvious problems

Ahhhh but try it in the air and see if it is different :D Never switch it on near other machines at a rally either - Gary Blackwell says it reduces the machine’s sensitivity by up to 10%. No idea how you test that but I don’t risk it :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

I’ll try starting it in the air at the weekend but if I don’t find Roman ,Celtic and hammered like I did on Sunday it will all be your fault!

FWIW,I use the amazon Blukar wired ear buds with both the deus and the nox.Not only are they cheap but they are louder than some more expensive versions and give a good sound.
I’m sure your ORX problem is only a temporary blip,they’re great machines,you could try plugging the wired buds into your control box and put it in a pocket,using it like a deus lite,if you’ve been using it for a while?
