It is the hottest metal detector in Europe and NOW the XP DEUS is available in North America.
There are SO MANY features that make the XP DEUS Wireless Metal Detector the most exceptional available, it’s difficult to list them in order of importance. Perhaps the most stand-out quality about this detector is its level of SIMPLICITY, while offering futuristic state-of-the-art functionality.

But experts will really thank the XP engineers for its precision and advanced operating modes. The MENU options on the touchpad have an “expert” option for additional customization. This includes discrimination, sensitivity, frequency, iron volume, reactivity, audio response, notch and 4 ground balance options. XP has really raised the bar and thought of everything with this metal detector.
What’s so great about wireless?
XP DEUS breaks the barriers of what is ‘expected’ in a metal detector with this wireless concept! Wireless means no search coil wires to get snagged and no more tangled headphone wires. It makes storage easy as you can extend or fold away the stem easily. The greatest part of XP DEUS’s wireless design is an unmistakable gain in signal acquisition quality. Signals no longer need to be conveyed via a wire link—instead, they are digitized and analyzed closer to the source by an ultra-miniature electronic circuit housed in the coil. This is a totally digital platform. Three devices (wireless search coil, wireless digital remote control and wireless audio headphones) communicate with each other through a digital radio signal. The result? Crystal clear audio.
The DEUS features a Lightweight and ergonomic design. And its powerful technology and deep-seeking capabilities are something to write home about. Let’s review the 3 major wireless components that set this metal detector apart:
Wireless search coil- In and of itself, The XP DEUS wireless search coil houses all of the essential components for processing the target signal. It is waterproof and no longer needs a wire to convey the signal. This definitely improves the signal quality.
Wireless digital display remote control- This functions independently from the headphones. It’s easy and intuitive—just scroll through the menu to adjust audio response, iron level, multi tone, notch and discrimination. Ground balance is made easy for your desired target. Choose from: tracking, pumping, manual and beach ground adjust options.
Wireless audio headphones- The wireless headphones feature a screen and keypad, controlling the most important features of the XP DEUS. Three simple controls on the ear cup control the metal detector: menu, plus and minus buttons. From the headset, you can adjust ground balance, frequency, discrimination, sensitivity and all of your custom programs.
What will Treasure Hunters Find with the XP DEUS?
The better question is: what can’t you search for with the XP DEUS wireless metal detector? This unit will easily find coins, jewelry, relics (valuable and intriguing objects from the past) and gold. The preset options make it a breeze for any type of treasure hunting! There are more lost coins and jewelry in the ground than there are in circulation. And relic hunters can rejoice with the XP DEUS. Detectorists often blog about their great finds with this unit including: Civil War pieces like colonial buckles, buttons, swords, musket balls and cannons and artifacts such like arrowheads, jewelry and knives.
Since the XP DEUS is so versatile, you can search just about anywhere with it in any type of soil: the beach, park, riverbanks, construction sites, etc. We’ve found that some of the best sites for metal detecting include farmer’s fields (especially down south), construction sites, grassy areas between the sidewalk and street, in the same spots as other detectorists have already been (they may have missed some treasure) and your own backyard! So, what are you waiting for? The XP DEUS has raised the bar with technology and simplicity, making it much easier for you to score big.
