The World’s Best-Selling Metal Detectors Get Even Better

All-new Minelab EQUINOX 700 and 900 All-Terrain detectors join EQUINOX 600 and 800 models for 2023

Chicago, IL (January 31, 2023) - Consisting of the popular EQUINOX 600 and EQUINOX 800 metal detectors, Minelab’s EQUINOX Series is designed for the serious treasure hunting enthusiast looking to upgrade to a high-performance detector without the high cost. But EQUINOX isn’t for the experienced alone. State-of-the-art Multi-IQ simultaneous multi-frequency technology and multiple pre-set detecting modes combine with competitive pricing to make EQUINOX models great choices for new detectorists as well.

Indeed, EQUINOX has proven itself, both in the field and in the marketplace. In fact, its unique combination of performance, features, capability, and price has made EQUINOX 800 the world’s best-selling metal detector since its introduction in 2017.

Minelab is pleased to announce two all-new additions to its popular EQUINOX Series: the next-generation EQUINOX 700 All-Terrain All-Treasure detector and EQUINOX 900 All-Terrain All-Target detector – both of which deliver heightened levels of performance.

High-Resolution Target IDs and Improved Target Separation

New EQUINOX 700 and 900 models feature improved Target Separation capability which adjusts recovery speed and iron bias. More high-resolution Target IDs – 119 total (99 non-ferrous and 20 ferrous) – help detectorists better distinguish between trash and treasure like never before.

Swing Lighter, Hunt Longer

New EQUINOX 700 and 900 detectors (2.8 lbs.) are 5% lighter than EQUINOX 600 and 800 models (2.96 lbs.).

Dive Deeper to Find More Treasure

New submersible EQUINOX 700 and 900 All-Terrain detectors are rated IP68, providing improved waterproof performance to 5 meters (16 ft.).

Advanced Audio Control

EQUINOX 700 and 900’s five Audio Modes with user-configurable options mean the sound of treasure has never been clearer. Detectorists will not only hear if a target is trash or treasure, but they’ll also be able to gauge its size and depth simply by listening.

New Lighting and Vibration

New EQUINOX 700 and 900 detectors ensure that the hunt won’t end when the sun goes down. New features like Control Pod Flashlight, Red Backlight Display, Backlit Keypad, and Handgrip Vibration combine to help detectorists find their way to treasures long after others have given up the search.
