Very low frequency (VLF) is the technology built into most detectors – pretty much any machine under $1,000. You may also want to get a machine that’s relatively easy to use with not a lot of settings. Click here to read our complete guide on the best metal detectors for gold. The only factors you need to consider here is that you get a fully submersible machine with good discrimination – that’s really it.
The 71 kHz operating frequency gives increased sensitivity to smaller and deeper nuggets even in highly mineralized soil. The Safari is Powered by Minelab’s FBS technology, it combines deep accurate detecting. The CZ-21 is a go-anywhere, do anything, all-weather, audio target-ID machine that is waterproof to 250 feet.
Thanks to many years of in-depth research in the field of Metal Detection, CEIA has established itself as a primary manufacturer of high-performance Ground Search Metal Detectors. The IQ4 Rectangular Search Head Metal Detector is designed to be integrated within production lines or conveyor systems. The world’s ﬁrst metal detector to use multiple ﬁeld directions, the Interceptor DF achieves a 100% detection sensitivity increase. If you need any advice on metal detecting or how to choose the best metal detector for you or your children just give us a call on 0121 359 2379 or email us. Relying on 12 years of the experience in treasure hunting, we successfully tested the prototypes globally with metal detecting hobby groups.
The X-Terra 705 comes standard with a 10.5″ DD 7.5kHz Coil. The ever popular X-TERRA 705 is now available in an all new Gold Pack configuration.

If you’re on highly mineralized ground, you’ll know because the detector will sound like a firework – turn down the sensitivity. That metal detector will end up flying off a cliff because it’s uncontrollable and really, really annoying. In highly mineralized soils detecting can be almost impossible because your machine is barraged with iron particles and screaming its head off with excitement. The worst mineral for metal detectorists is iron because it’s conductive and sets off your machine.
The ACE400 is a solid all-round detector you’ll love to play with. Their new Ace 400 detector sits pretty at the top of the beginner check it out range while being solid enough for experienced hunters. The 400 is an upgrade on the excellent ACE 350 which is now discontinued.
A pulse induction machine finds deeper, smaller objects than VLF detectors and they’re programmed to ignore ground minerals. Depending on your machine, it may narrow the search area down to a foot or two. Headphones reduce outside noise from wind, waves, and traffic helping you concentrate on target tones, but in my opinion, the best reason to get headphones is so the general public doesn’t get involved in the search. Dip and drag in through sand and water to grab a target before it drifts out to sea.
So many aspects affect how deeply a detector can sense metal that it’s impossible to give a straight answer. Low-frequency machines at 2-4 kHz are best for deep-seeking everything, mid frequency 5-12 kHz for relics, jewelry and coins, and higher frequencies for gold. High-frequency kHz has shorter wavelengths and finds smaller targets with less conductivity, such as nuggets and flakes of gold.
