Equinox in Water


Three Search Modes
Three preset search modes optimised for varying ground conditions; Park, Field & Beach.
Simultaneous Multi-Frequency
A few detectors on the market claim to be multi-frequency, but these simply switch different between single frequencies, operating on just one at any given time. The Equinox is unique in offering true simultaneous multi-frequency detecting. The best of all worlds with low frequencies picking up large, deep targets and high frequencies sensitive to small objects, all in a single pass of the coil. Plus the range of single frequency settings for more specific needs.
6 Custom Search Profiles
Save your two favorite settings profiles for each of the three search modes.
Waterproof Design
Waterproof for up to 3 meters, the Equinox is ideal for detecting in rivers, lakes and surf, or snorkeling in shallows.
Fast & Accurate Target ID
Super fast recovery speed and accurate target ID to pick out the real targets among the trash.
Sleek & Lightweight
The tough lightweight design will help keep you detecting for longer in all conditions.
Wireless Audio Compatible
Compatible with High-Speed wireless audio via WM 08 or fast aptX™ Low Latency / Bluetooth headphones.
Multi-IQ Simultaneous Multi-Frequency Range
* 20 kHz and 40 kHz are not available as single operating frequencies in EQUINOX 600.
3F x 3 Multi IQ aptX Low Latency Wi Stream Bluetooth

While the 800 is clearly The Daddy of the series, reviews are suggesting that the 600 is still a very capable machine and superb value for money. If the 600 has one other thing over the 800 other than the low price, it is that we could supply you with one much sooner.
