Minelab Equinox 800 Waterproof Metal Detector

The EQUINOX 800 metal detector with Multi-IQ technology redefines multi-purpose detection for beginners and enthusiastic professionals. Adaptable to all types of terrain targets and terrain conditions, the Equinox 800 is a true metal detector.

With additional Gold Mode functionality, High Frequency 20/40 kHz, wireless audio accessories and advanced configurations, the EQUINOX 800 offers additional versatility. The EQUINOX 800 Gold mode is designed to improve yield on small gold nuggets in mineralized soils. It does this primarily by using different audio processing to targets respond to them both in volume and tone. The Gold Mode will be of interest to gold seekers but has fewer applications for other uses. More importantly, the Multi-IQ is as good at both Park 2 and Field 2, that these profiles are as good if not better at finding gold nuggets than many dedicated single frequency gold detectors. People who regularly detect gold nuggets will probably want the EQUINOX 800.

The EQUINOX 800 adds the ability to change non-ferrous tones and volumes, which can be useful for those who hunt strictly by ear. These options may also be helpful for people with extreme hearing loss in a particular audio range. The other big difference between EQUINOX 600 and EQUINOX 800 is the “Advanced Configuration” which allows a greater degree of tuning in various options. The EQUINOX 800 has eight levels for fine-tuning in the densest “nail carpet” scenarios. Low settings offer more solid hits at targets very deep, but poor separation from targets adjacent ones. High settings have a great deal of separation, but the trimmed audio responses required in the dense garbage make it more difficult to hear targets very deep.

The EQUINOX 800 has a user profile button that allows the operator to jump directly to an alternative detection mode. For example, to go from Park 1 to Beach 1 you only need four presses of the Detection Mode button to pass. You can also program an additional user profile to get there at the touch of a button. The EQUINOX 800 also has Low, Medium, High or Off backlight settings for heavy users who want to conserve energy consumption. The EQUINOX Series has automatic noise cancellation, but the 800 series also offers manual cancellation. If you hunt in areas of high electrical interference (EMI), or around many other detectors, this can be useful to find the quietest configuration with the least interference. Automatic is great and most people will never use the Manual.

Hard-working people detectorists who want the additional features of the 800 will appreciate the additional benefits and configurations offered by the machines.

    It has great precision. A variety of search modes make the detection process even more detailed. It is very easy to use and lightweight, making it extremely portable. Assembly was a breeze with just a few clicks and clicks and you’re good to go.

    They are the best waterproof metal detectors, I have always bought Minelab and I do not change them for anything, it is the best brand.

    I love it, it works better than expected. Great metal detector.

  12. L. Hawk

    Great machine. I have been using Whites metal detectors for the last 4 years and this one far exceeds it. After using it for a while, I found more coins than I found with my previous detectors, the depth is fantastic. The only detail is that I would like the battery to last longer, but in general I do recommend this Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector.

  13. Dustin J.

    I started metal detecting several years ago and had quit this hobby and recently started doing it again. Buy this Equinox 800 and it’s pretty easy to use once you know how it works. I honestly go out two to three times a week because I love this detector so much. I was worried that I would not like this machine, but once I used it and understood how it worked, I fell in love.

  14. L. Politz

    Great metal detector, Highly recommended for all those experts or beginners in detecting, it is of great quality.

  15. Kirk

    Super fast delivery, very high quality metal detector, as expected and very good customer service.

  27. Walter Ferdinand

    I just can compare this metal detector with a ferrari, this is the future, love minelab from many years ago and after used the equinox 800 I just can say thanks to them, also thanks John for help me on my purchase. If you are looking for coins or relics don’t doubt this is the detector you should use.

  28. Donald Bikel

    Nicely package when shipped. I think this machine is excellent. Used in my back yard that had been hunted several times, found a quarter 5 minutes after starting. Looking forward to the weekend for more hunting.

  29. Guzman

    10 years detecting everywhere, I have a Tesoro Compadre, Garrett AT Gold and a Whites TM and with my experience I have to say nothing like the Equinox, is simple a superior and friendly detector. I’ve never found so many coins and relics as now with my equinox. People don’t think too much just choice this one. Also thanks to Luis for your service this is the difference than buy in Amazon after many emails and calls I finally get the best detector and not just buying online without a person to talk about metal detecting.

  30. Andy O.

    Definitely the Equinox 800 is on my top 5 of metal detectors, awesome performance and easy to use on Florida beaches. This multi IQ is the most advance feature compare to other models. I would say that after my Minelab CTX this is now my second favorite option and on third place my old Garett AT Pro.

  31. Samuel Martinez

    Muy feliz de haber podido comprar este detector, un amigo me lo recomendo y ahora todos los fines de semana salgo a detectar, es el mejor deporte que pude encontrar para compartir con mis hijos, ahora nos divertimos y tambien encontramos piezas de valor.

  32. Adal Roman

    Not words describe the performance of the Equinox 800. For me this is the best metal detector in history. Every metal detectorists should have one equinox 800 if you are really serious about metal detecting.

  33. Vander

    After check more than 100 reviews on different pages about the Equinox 800 finally bought it from Detector Power. This machine is great for Park, Beach, Field
    and Gold. A true all terrain detector. For me the best option of Minelab products and a good affordable price.

  34. Asencio

    Submersible detector, perfect to mix my two hobbies, metal detecting and diving. Thanks John for your service

  35. Allen

    Sencillamente el mejor detector de metales en el mercado, incomparable!

  36. Ricardo Muñoz

    El Minelab Equinox 800 es un excelente detector de metales, con el modo EQUINOX 800 Gold tiene un muy buen rendimiento para encontrar pepitas de oro y también con el multi IQ que funciona a la perfección, este equinox 800 sin duda es el detector de metales perfecto para encontrar pepitas oro, Minelab es lo mejor en detector de metales.

  37. C. Johnson

    Best detector I’ve ever owned, hightly recommendable, It worths every dollar.

  38. Pete B.

    I just wanted to thank Detector Power for their awesome service. Fast service and fast response, delivery was as scheduled, I used my equinox 800 for the first time today. I’m a beginner and this detector was great. No big finds mainly coins. What was impressive is the fact that the 800 picked up all those coins in trashy signals. I’d dig find a pull tab and right next to it a penny a dime or quarter Every coin was next to trash.

  39. Harry Park

    I always like brands as Garrett and Fisher labs but heard a lot of good thing about this Minelab Equinox 800 and decided to purchase with Detector Power, they gave me the best performance tips and now two months later I have to say is the best metal detector that I have ever own, very accurate, modern and easy to understand, definitely superior than any other brand on the market, just found a nice big ring on the beach and I am very happy with this purchase!
