7 the best depth metal detectors

*A look at the best of the best according to the editors. About the selection criteria. This material is subjective, not an advertisement and is not a guide to purchase. Consultation with a specialist is necessary before purchase.

In our country there is a category of people who cannot get enough of the mysteries of Mother Earth. They are armed with special instruments to search for metal artifacts. Since many valuable items are under a large layer of soil, only deep metal detectors can detect them. Today on the Russian market there is a fairly wide range of these specialized devices. To make the right choice for beginners hoarders, you should listen to the recommendations of our experts.

Depth of detection. The main technical characteristic of the metal detector is the depth of detection.

  1. Small objects (coins, medals, badges) can be found at a depth of 1 m. So do not demand the impossible from a metal detector.
  2. Helmets, automatic rifles, machine guns can be found up to 2 meters deep.
  3. the largest artifacts (artillery pieces, airplanes, tanks) the depth metal detectors find at a mark up to 9 m.

Discrimination.Many depth finders do not have a discriminating function. In some cases it is not required. At the same time the price of the device will be significantly lower. But if it is important to determine the type of metal at a considerable depth, it is worth giving preference to models with discrimination.

Design features. The most important part of any metal detector is a coil or a frame.

  1. the main advantage of the coil is mobility and ease of use. This depth finder can be used by one person. But in terms of technical characteristics coils look more modest.
  2. The maximum detection depth is shown by the devices equipped with a large-sized frame. It allows you to increase the area under investigation and accelerate the search operations. But because of the unwieldiness, you have to take an assistant to work with such a complex machine.

Versatility. Many metal detectors have a narrow scope of application. Some devices behave well on light soils, others orient excellently in water. That’s why experts recommend to pay attention to such feature of the device, as stability of searching in different soils. Universal deep detectors are not afraid of mineralized soil, they do not react to surface debris.

We have selected the 7 best depth metal detectors in the review. When assigning spots, the editorial staff of expertology magazine relied on the conclusions of experts, taking into account the feedback from Russian treasure hunters.

Golden Mask Deep Hunter 3 Pro SE

Rating: 4.9

Golden Mask Deep Hunter 3 Pro SE

Bulgarian Golden Mask Deep Hunter 3 Pro SE metal detector is a modification of the model 3 Pro. In the updated version of the manufacturer has provided the ability to manually adjust. With its help you can successfully find artifacts in the most difficult ground. But even if you use the device in automatic mode, it can be fine-tuned more accurately, using the potentiometer

esh. By re-tuning the metal detector, users can get an increase in depth of search up to 15%. Experts note the immunity of the new model to interference, which allows you to work steadily in different conditions. The device becomes the winner of our review.

Owners consider the metal detector a great option for search parties. Beginning treasure hunters will have a long time to learn the nuances of working with the depth finder.


  • stable work with different soils;
  • great depth of detection;
  • fine-tuning;
  • reliability.


  • high price.

Fisher Gemini 3 coil

Rating: 4.8

Fisher Gemini 3 ground

Silver of our review gets American deep metal detector Fisher Gemini 3. Experts have highly estimated such qualities of the device, as versatility and mobility. The device is transportable in two cases, to bring the model to the working position requires only 2-3 min. The low weight (2.8 kg) and compact overall dimensions can be added to the asset of the device. For convenience, the manufacturer has equipped the metal detector with adjustable shoulder strap. The maximum depth of search reaches 6 m (large objects), but to find coins or badges can not be deeper than 1 m.

Domestic treasure hunters liked the model for its reasonable price, mobility, reliability. As for the disadvantages, users note the unstable operation of the settings, which can cause false positives.


  • universality of application;
  • mobility;
  • reasonable price;
  • reliability.


  • unstable operation of the settings.

White’s TM 808 primer

Rating: 4.7


Highly popular in our country is the American metal detector White’s TM 808. Experts attribute the steady demand for the model to several reasons. The manufacturer has found the optimal balance of price and quality. the metal detector is easy to use, even one person can cope with it. the maximum depth of detection is 4 meters, although this only applies to large objects. It is best searched in limited areas. The model can not determine the type of metal, which should be considered by potential buyers.

Despite the fact that the depth finder has long been produced, and in terms of manufacturability it is inferior to modern devices, users are satisfied with his work. Of the disadvantages they point out only the fear of moisture and unreliable coils.


  • reasonable price;
  • simple design
  • high quality build;
  • good depth of detection.


  • unreliable coils;
  • fear of moisture.

The unique technology of searching used in the Bulgarian metal detector Detech SSP-5100. Thanks to the PI induction the manufacturer managed to achieve a record depth (9 m) of detection. In real conditions, experts found machine guns at a depth of 2 m, and soldiers’ helmets at 1.6 m. Frequency of radiation is 100 Hz, but the search frame is quite large 1000×1000 mm. Although the device can operate in automatic mode, you can not do without an assistant. On the plus side of the device should be clear menus and a clear display. high price prevented the metal detector to rise to a higher position.

Russian searchers flattered about the efficiency, reliability and easy setup of the device. It is quickly mastered by beginners, but the deterrent to purchase becomes a high price.


  • great depth of detection;
  • easy setup;
  • unpretentiousness;
  • clear display.


  • high price;
  • oversized frame.
