    Still learning. Did find a quarter in the back yard but lots of hits are small rocks. Interesting that pin pointer is not as good as the minelab. Even with the quarter hit.Look forward to learning how to use the device.

    EQUiNox 800

    I heard a lot of good reviews so I upgraded to the Equinox 800.. I love it… I’m using the factory setting right out of the box and it’s working great.. Doing some research and going to tweak it and see what happens…. my MX Sport now sits in the corner..

    Excellent detector!

    This is an excellent detector that is very light and has very good battery life! I have not used the wireless headsets yet.

    It WORKS!

    After receiving my Equinox 800 I went to a local beach that is hammered daily by detectorists. First thing I noticed was how easy the 800 was to swing. In the beach modes I was not getting all the interference that I got with my other two detectors. I was getting a few hits downh at the water line but the waves were pounding so hard that I was unable to dig at that time so I marked the spots with a GPS program to come back to later. I picked up some strong signals and was able to get a ring, some coins, and a vintage toy car. The lesson for me is that even though the beach is hit daily I still picked up quality targets at some great depths. I was pleased and hit a different beach the next day with same results. Two days of detecting and two days of rings. I have to say I am very pleased with the purchase of the 800 and am looking forward for more adventures…

    My Husband Loves this!

    I bought this for my husband at Christmas. He has used it several times. Compared to his other Minelab this one takes getting used to because it has many more features. He is not bending over and picking up bottle tops and pieces of aluminum anymore.IT came within two days of ordering. It needs to be charged after you receive it. The manual is large and needs to be downloaded off the internet because it is loaded with more features.Great buy. He is very happy.

    Works great!

    Liked the ease of assembly. But, the lack of instructions on linking wireless headphones was very irritating. But, overall I’m very satisfied with assembly & ease of operation.

    Great product, not so good replacement by Amazon

    Love the unit, unfortunately the unit I purchased leaked the first time I rinsed it off after a day of detecting at the beach. I had to purchase another one to replace it due to Amazon not standing behind the sale of a $900.00 item. You have to send it back and wait for two weeks to simply get a refund. I went to a Quality seller who stands behind it’s sales.

    This thing rocks!!

    Thanks to Amazon’s return policy I was able to return a metal detector that I had just bought before I learned of this one. I made the right choice to get this it seems from all the reviews I have seen. I just started this hobby and have pulled a few nice things already. Once I get the hang of the signals I should be flying high.

    My first metal detector is this Equinox 800

    Easy to use with the help of watching some YouTube videos for advanced settings. Love it. I think its a great detector to start out with for the serious people that want to take up the hobby.

  10. rdog2rdog2

    Best mid range detector out. Don’t @ me.

    This machine rips. Multi frequency, bluetooth, noise cancel and ground balance with the push of a few buttons, adjustable recovery speed, adjustable back lighting….the list goes on.Very versatile machine. Performs in the park just as well as it does in the ocean. I’m not much for choosing sides like a lot of enthusiasts when it comes to brands, but minelab did it right with this one.Great out of the box but even better when you really start to learn it.7 rings in just over a month.

    It’s worth every penny

    Best detector I have ever used. Blows the Garrett’s away. There is a learning curve but once you have a handle on the machine it is absolutely incredible. My deepest coins was over 16 inches. Small silver. I can’t say enough about it. I will never own anything besides Minelab from now on. Next purchase will be the GTX 5000.

  12. Dj

    Great detector!

    I definitely recommend this thing! Found numerous civil war relics, coins, and cannonballs! A little on the hard side to figure out…but once you’ve got it down pat, your good to go! Tells me exactly what I’m about to dig. I also recommend NOT getting the “minelab pinpointer” but instead, for the same price, get the “Garrett pro-pointer AT“. They seem to make a great pair!Overall a great detector!

    Awsome metal detector

    Very amazing machine, I search in very difficult beaches and this machine catches the signal on very magnetic black sand. I found a coin 5 minutes after turning it on. Then I spend 2 hours convincing my wife that I didn’t planted the coin, lol. This machine can be used out of the box or fine tune for your needs. It up to you but the pre-settings are amazing.

  16. Vangie Fich

    Great metal detector

    It is very light weight, easy to operate. Great quality.

  17. Gavin MooreGavin Moore

    Great machine

    Upgraded from a Garrett AT pro. This thing is super light and picks up signals I have never been able to before. It can pick up an object in between 2 other object that are junk. Found my first merc on my first outing in a field I have detected before. Great machine.

    I’m having a blast!

    Great detector and arrived quickly. Of course I only included photos of my more exciting finds and left out the tons of trash 😁. If you do your homework and put the time in you will also have some exciting finds. This machine is a huge step up from what I was using. It’s a high quality machine that even a beginner can learn quickly.

    Husband is having fun finding treasure in the yard…

    This is our first detector, so we are practicing use for finding gold this summer. There is a definite difference between the signal for Gold and other metals. Finds objects at various depths in the yard. Hopeful about summer prospecting. Glad we got this model; husband seems happy with it=

  20. The meyer family

    The best multi purpose detector hands down

    This is my second detector and is amazing, but this Is a very high end detector so it will take a lot of getting used to. It is best to research how to setup and use this. It is amazing one detector can be used in so many situations, no one detector Is usually good in every single field of search such as beach or relic, but this machine can beat most machines in there own game and some its truly a Jack of all trades and a master of them all!!! I have only one discrepancy and this is if a mineralization meter and auto ground tracking was offered in all modes not just gold

    Yes, this IS the one to buy.

    One of the best detectors out there, and arguably the best in wet beach sand. The ergonomics of the unit need to be improved as it may bother your shoulder joint when using the included loop swinging back and forth.

    The best metal detector I have had in 25 years

    I have had entry level garretts , AT Pro, mine lab Excalibur’s and a multitude of other detectors. This detector beats all of them times a 100. I have gone to my old hunting grounds and pulled up stuff that I have been over a million times with the AT pro, and I was on vacation 2 weeks ago in Hilton head and I pulled up a platinum a titanium and a 14 gold diamond ring amongst a whole lot of other stuff. I have never been so excited about a metal detector as I am about this 1. Wet sands, dry sand ,water ,and dirt it’s fabulous.the wireless makes all the difference as well as the weight.

    Finds what others don’t

    Started finding lost rings in minutes but take the time to read up or watch videos to hone your skills. I now own 2 of these, they are that good…depending on what your looking for.

    Good detector to have

    I like this detector , I have the A T PRO and wanted to buy a second detector so that I could take a friend with me sometimes . After a lot of thinking about what to buy I decided to get the Minlab Equinox 800 . This is a very good detector to have.

    Equinox 800

    I really like the equinox 800, it is an amazing detector. The only thing that really bothers me are all the false signals. Sometimes there are so many signals sounding off it is hard to deal with.

    Works great but you right on top of the Object

  27. Amazon Customer

    very good

    one of the better mid priced metal detectors. i have used metal detectors since 1970. white,fisher , garrett,xp deux,minelab .the minelab explorer se was a very good detector replaced by the e-trac. they are as close to telling you whats in the ground as you will get. the equinox is half the price and very close. REMEMBER NO DETECTOR WILL TELL YOU WHATS IN THE GROUND. SO plan on digging all targets including the silver coin or gold ring under the beer can. the junk will hide the good stuff if its been over the good stuff for a while. it’s going to take a while to learn this detector if its the first one for you.factory settings will find everything.

    Love it for beach combing

    Easy to pick up and use, take a little time to read instructions or watch a couple of YouTube videos and you are set. Love it.

    This thing is a BEAST

    This thing is a Beast in the Iron! The recovery speeds are amazing. I find more relics in those “hunted out” colonial foundations that are infested with cut nails and other iron. Not only is it good in that arena but just about any where you use it. In one of the photos I posted you can see a 1st year Merc Dime 1916 in the hole. That coin was DEEP. At about 10 inches on edge that machine banged it. Not only that but I had been over that yard 3 or 4 times with my AT Pro and went back with the NOX 800 and found that Merc….The 1870 Indian Head Penny…..2 flat buttons….and a cpl other clad coins that the AT totally missed. Love this machine. Was easy to learn with time and the menus are easy to navigate. Multifrequency is sick! Love this machine. Just do yourself a favor and buy it!
