Default NOX 800: aftermarket bluetooth earbud delays

I picked up a seat of these to use in the heat, and hopefully in shallow water.
https://www.amazon.com/Boltune-Bluet.../dp/B083P1HY43

Yesterday I ran out to a local park to test them out, and the delay was very noticeable, to the point that target location was greatly impacted by it. I ended up throwing the ear bud in a pocket and detecting without headphones.

These headphones are BT 5.0 with AptX technology for low latency. Does anyone have tips on how to improve this? I plan to return them and try again if I can't get these to work as well as the over ear headphones the Nox800 comes with.

I think I may have found the issue. These are AptX, not AptX LL, I didn't realize there was such a difference.

I'll let you know if they work any better. I am keeping the other headphones as the main headphones for my cell phone, as they are comfortable and well built, just not LL.

I believe the nox runs bluetooth 4.1, not 5.0, that could be the problem.

So how do you like the Aukey's? I've been using them a couple of months and they are great in the heat.

In the water? Looks like we’ll be finding them in a water hunt. Heck my wires earbuds keep falling out.

I just got the B80 Aukey buds for $25...seem to fit comfortably, sound better than good and work great.
Sound way better to me than the cheap ML phones which were muddy to my ears.
I think I will enjoy them for summer hunting immensely.

I am one of the guys that recommended the Aukey B80s. They work great with my older Equinox 800 and 600. I recently picked up another 600 that was manufactured recently. Both of my pairs of Aukey B80s will rarely sync with this newer 600 and when they do the audio is full of static and unusable. So, I am trying to get MinelabAmerica to give me some kind of answer on why this is happening. Still waiting after three weeks. They did respond fairly quickly in the beginning but nothing since. I don't think it is a problem with the Aukeys. My ML 80s are hard to sync and have a bit of static too. The WM08 module which does not use Bluetooth, works great.

Hopefully this gets sorted out soon. The Aukeys, Sennheiser CX 6.0 and SoundPeats sure sound better and don't make me sweat like the over the ear headphones do.

Jeff

This is interesting...i have the B80s and they are Ok soundwise, (my Soundpeats Q12+ are much better from an audio standpoint), but like the fact the B80s hang on my ears and dont fall out when they get sweaty. No connection issues with my 800 either, even after being updated to V3. Now that my 800 has died and in the process of being RMA'd, ive borrowed my buddies 800 (also updated to V3) which has a newer build date. It constantly drops the BT connection to the B80s for some reason. When they do connect the audio is staticy and scratchy. My Q12+ connect fine and stay connected. This does lead me to believe the newer 600/800 might have a different BT chip that doesnt play nice with the B80s.

Which I guess this also implies that if we return our unit under warranty and get a new pod we might have Bluetooth issues even if we aren't now.
