my hearing damaged too bad by guns to discern a lot of tone difference..

Hi Dixiedigger, Ya I know what your talking about. As much as I love my Fors CoRes I'm running into the same problem as I did with the Red Racers. Because of no Iron Audio Volume, I am starting to have a hard time catching the mid-tones when in dense iron and be barraged by the low iron tone. I can still catch the high tone easy enough but no so much with the mid-tone.

Yesterday I went out for a bit. I left my CoRe home and only used the Racer 2 and Relic, both having iron Audio volume. It did make a big difference. So at this point I may change it up a bit. They may become my primary use machines in the dense iron. I'll prob just mount a mid size coil on the Core and use it for less dense iron areas.

As Monte has alway said" There isn't a perfect detector" To me the CoRe would have been close to perfect had it had Iron Audio Volume.

Hell. I might just go back to the MXT or M6 lol, they are the only machines I have used that I had to actually turn down the volume control on my Pro-Star headphones. On the Nokta & Makro machines I run them full volume.

But like you, I'm not deaf per se, its just that some tones are harder to catch then others and the low and mid tone on the Racer & Core are close and is getting hard to seperate them, especially when your knee deep in the iron and have a constant nonstop low tone . The last few times out I noticed I was having difficulty hearing the mid tone. Oh well !!! I guess the price we pay for getting older.
