XP Deus II Key Features

Waterproof up to 65 feet

With such level of water resistancy, deeper diving is possible for the detectorists and therefore more possibilities for productive search.

Fast Multi Frequency

The ability to use several frequencies at the same time, or choose a separate frequency for narrow search, means higher efficiency.

DD Coils

The most efficient shape of the coil for highly mineralized soils and highly littered locations.

Remote Control

Remote control makes metal detecting more flexible and convenient, as the control box can be taken off.

Wireless headphones

Besides being wireless and giving more flexibility in movement, headphones for Deus II are bone conduction.

Telescopic stem

Lightweight and ergonomic stem is easy to use and easy to store.

Metal Detector Overview

Disclaimer: XP Deus II is not yet in stock at the time of writing this overview. The overview is based on the facts and data revealed by the manufacturer, however, there is still no full documentation, let alone the ability to get one’s hands on the new machine. The review will be enhanced as soon as XP Deus II is in stock and full tech specs are available.

Control Box

Deus II Control Box

Deus II has a control box and also a remote control. Both work with the headphones, but the combination of remote control and the headphones create a convenient and handy pair that make metal detecting easier, because the metal detector becomes lighter when the control box is taken off.

Both control box and remote control work with any set of headphones – wired, wireless, and bone conduction headphones. When the control box is off, the metal detector can be controlled and tuned with the combined work of wireless headphones and remote control. The remote control can be kept in your pocket or fixed on the stem.

Search Modes

XP Deus II is said to have 12 factory search modes, and some slots for custom modes saved by the user.

General

40 kHz max, works well for beginners and experienced detectorists. Rejects moisture in soils, prevents false signals, and improves deep target search.

Sensitive

40 kHz max, very efficient search mode for all targets, especially in mineralized or polluted soils. Works well with small targets.

Sensitive Full Tones

40 kHz max, offers a richer sound range when working with different targets. Fits for more experienced users that prefer sound signals.

Fast

40 kHz max, uses square audio feature. Works similar to Sensitive, but offers faster response in highly mineralized, polluted, and ferrous soils.

Park

24 kHz max, for recreational areas that are not very polluted.

Deep High Conduction

14 kHz max, operates with very low and medium frequencies at the same time, to spot good conductivity targets.

Deus Mono

Monofrequency from 4 to 45 kHz, offering improved EMI rejection and audio quality.

Gold Field

40 kHz max, created for highly mineralized gold bearing soils. The mode works as all metals, but does not see gold nuggets as ferrous, and offers deep reach.

Relic

24 kHz max, works on highly mineralized grounds, but is intended for larger masses.

Diving

14 kHz max, the first and the most stable search mode for underwater and saltwater search. Uses low and medium frequencies, and is less responsive to less conductive targets.

Beach

24 kHz max, more sensitive to smaller targets. This search mode is perfect for wet areas, whatever the type of soil.

Beach Sensitive

40 kHz max, shows excellent performance with large and small targets alike, being the most reactive of all underwater modes, and also offering the deepest reach.

XP Deus II Accessories

XP WS6 Wireless Headphones

XP WS6 headphones represent the newer generation of wireless headphones by XP. These are not only headphones, they also work as a remote control box, being able to connect to the coil. This way, the detectorist can use a super lite version of Deus II, and enjoy the utmost convenience and flexibility.

The user can mount the WS6 module on the stem and actually use it as a mini control box, to have access to all the settings. In fact, the detectorists will be able to use any of the 3 combinations:

The XP WS6 specifications are as follows:

Metal Detector Search Coil / Coils

The new XP Deus II has its own series of search coils, which are not compatible with the previous Deus, and the first Deus’ coils are not compatible with the new metal detector.

The new coils are XP FMF, and currently we know more about the 11 inches coil.

XP II FMF Coil

This coil is an 11 inches wireless and Fast Multi Frequency search coil, that works with 49 frequencies. The battery life is around 20 hours, but that depends on the search modes and frequencies used, and also partially on the surroundings.

The coil is completely waterproof up to 65 feet, has a coil cover, and holds a 5 years warranty. The weight is 470 gr.

Metal Detector Accessories

BH-01 Bone Conduction Headphones

The very first accessory that should be paid huge attention to is of course the innovative, groundbreaking bone conduction headphones for XP Deus II. This technology has never been used in the hobby metal detecting niche before. The XP BH-01 are waterproof up to 65 feet.

Bone conduction headphones are perfect for diving, because they conduct the sound signal directly to the inner ear through the cheekbone, without eardrums involved. This technology gives a list of advantages:

Metal Detector Kit

The new XP Deus II will be available in two configurations.

DEUS2-22FMFRCWS6 variation will contain:

The DEUS2-28FMFRCWS6 will have all the same but an 11 inches search coil instead.

Conclusion

Considering all the tech specs we already know, and all the features promised for XP Deus II, this new metal detector is a new milestone for the whole metal detecting industry. However, it is a bit pricey, too, which immediately causes many questions from the Deus fans. Anyways, we should all wait until the new XP Deus II becomes available on the market and we can get our hands on it, plus, when we are able to ask other detectorists’ opinions. Whatever the tech specs described on paper, any metal detector is only good when it’s good in the field.
