My concern with audio only is whether I would be able to hear signals with the noise of the regulator, but I suppose they thought of that and it has enough volume control.
For underwater use, sound is the only practical way of signaling the operator. You would have difficulty seeing a meter or even lights and you will be paying attention to where you are searching, not looking at the detector control box.

Again, get on the metal detecting forums and read the posts and ask questions. Just like you would here when considering a boat or boat accessory.

BTW: On my detector, turning the volume 1/2 way up is painful to the ears. I wouldn't worry about having enough volume.
