XP Deus metal detector review

Update: XP Deus 2 initial review here

A technological jump to wireless metal detecting!

The XP DEUS uses three high-performance wireless elements:

  • Wireless search coil
  • Wireless remote control with LCD
  • Wireless audio headphones

These three elements communicate with each other via a digital radio link. By incorporating components developed for leading-edge technologies, XP DEUS achieves power, speed, and precision, all in a lightweight and compact design.

The search coil contains the essential hardware for processing the signals, which no longer need to be conveyed via a wire link.

The signal is digitalized and analyzed directly at the source by a miniature digital circuit. This greatly improves the quality of signal acquisition.

This circuit, which is integrated into the detection head, processes the information and sends it to both the headphones and the remote control unit, in real-time.

XP DEUS is the ideal detector for coin shooting, nugget hunting, wet & dry saltwater beaches, and relic hunting. In the absence of the remote control unit, the main detection settings can be controlled by the headphones alone.
