King of Garrett ACE metal detectors line up, the Garrett ACE 400 includes advanced features like Iron Audio, Digital Target ID, and Frequency Adjust to help you dig more treasure and less trash. Includes headphones, environmental coverup, coil cover and the five additional bonus items shown in the main photo above. Be sure to read our Guide Comparing the Garrett Ace 200, 300 and 400 metal detectors and our guide Comparing the Garrett Ace 400 versus the AT Pro metal detectors.
The flagship of the ACE lineup is the ACE 400, which features the Iron Audio™ feature made popular on the company’s AT Pro™ and AT Gold™ detectors. Iron Audio allows the user to hear discriminated iron and to alter the detector’s mid-tone signal range. This helps the operator hear the iron content in flat steel objects like bottle caps and washers that sometimes trick a detector into reporting them as good targets.
The ACE 400 includes a higher, 10 kHz frequency to provide better sensitivity to low and medium conductivity targets, such as gold and lead. The detector’s Frequency Adjust feature allows users to easily toggle between slight frequency shifts to help eliminate interference from other detectors or power sources. The ACE 400 ships with an 8.5”x11” DD-configuration PROformance searchcoil that has proven to be very popular with the company’s previous ACE™ 350 and EuroACE™ detectors. The ACE 400 includes five discrimination modes, electronic pinpointing, sensitivity adjustment, and High-Resolution Iron Discrimination.
Garrett Ace 400 is the best choice for hobbyists who want the most bang for their buck when metal detecting. Iron Audio, headphones, a cover for the search coil, an environmental cover, and more are included in this unit. The Ace 400 has the same deep searching 8.5" x 11" DD PROformance search coil as the more expensive AT series. It is definitely worth upgrading if your budget allows!
Here is what we thing sets the Garrett Ace 400 apart from the lower models in the line-up. This unit includes 8.5" x 11" DD PROformance™ submersible searchcoil. This is the same soil that ships with the Garrett AT Series. This search coil is an upgraded coil over the lower models in the line and is included with the Ace 400. You can also control the sensitivity and depth adjustments at the touch of a button. You will notice that through proper control of the 8 sensitivity depth adjustments you are able to maximize your finds and eliminate false signals.
With the advanced Iron Audio™ feature, you can discriminate iron targets and alter your mid-tone signal range to cancel out trash targets. This will save you from digging trash targets in areas with high levels of iron trash.
You will appreciate having the higher frequency of 10 kHz for a better ability to find a wider range of targets. The adjustable frequency provides more good target options and better accuracy in the field. It is important to note that the Ace 400 has target identification features for u.s. coins. The garrett ace 400i is the international version of this metal detector and not designed for use in the United States.
As an upgrade from the base Garrett metal detector model, this unit includes a pinpoint feature. Using the integrated pinpoint mode, you can quickly locate your target by zooming in on the target. This advanced model includes five different search modes. In addition to the jewelry and coins modes, there's also a custom mode and a zero discrimination mode. There is a preset mode for every treasure hunter. You can choose a mode ideal for cache hunting, relic hunting, treasure hunting and even some basic gold prospecting and more. If you decide to focus on prospecting, there are dedicated gold detectors like the Garrett AT gold. The all metal mode is perfect for finding precious metal targets, i.e. gold.
A Garrett ClearSound headphone, the Ace environmental cover, and a search coil cover are included with this model. When in use, the search coil cover is left on while treasure hunting and protects the coil from wear. The unit operates at a frequency of 10 kHz, which is an ideal frequency for most targets. There is an improvement over the base models in terms of Iron discrimination. The model is the best at identifying iron in trash filled or iron laden hunt sites. Now you can easily find all u.s. coin denominations while hunting around junk. You can hone your skills by joining a metal detecting club in your area.
|Leasable with Katapult||Yes|
|Approximate Weight |
The approximate weight of the detector when fully assembled.
|2.9 lbs - 1.32 Kgs|
|Audio Identification |
Circuitry producing different audio tones for each target’s conductivity range, i.e., low tone for nickel, high tone for coins.
|Battery Requirements |
The type and amount of batteries used to operate the detector.
|4 - AA|
|Battery Indicator |
An indicator to show the user how much battery life is left.
The company that produces the detector.
|Search Coil Size |
The size and dimensions of the search coil
|8.5 x 11" Search Coil|
The country where the detector is made
|Ground Balance |
A feature available on many detectors that allows the device to filter out signals from minerals in the ground, while accepting signals from actual targets.
|Preset Ground Balance|
|Headphone Jack Size |
The size of the headphone jack
|Includes Bonus Items |
Bonus items are shown pictured with the device on the product page are included with this product
The overall length of the model when fully assembled
|42" to 51"|
|Operating Mode |
Operating modes would include, but are not limited to, discriminate mode and all-metal mode
|Operating Frequency |
The frequency at which the detector operates.
|Circuitry Type |
The type of circuitry the detector uses. Typically, you will see VLF (Very Low Frequency) detectors, and PI (Pulse Induction) detectors.
|Search Coil Shape||Semi Elliptical|
|Search Coil Type |
The type of search coil- Most commonly concentric, DD (also known as wide-scan), and Mono (available for some PI detectors).
|Sensitivity Adjustment |
This adjustment affects how sensitive the detector is to targets, and ultimately how deep they will be able to be detected.
|Visual Identification |
A visual target ID that allows the user to determine the composition of the target being detected before digging. Typically, a visual target ID is a numerical display based off the conductivity of the target being detected.
|Graphic Target Identification|
The amount of time the manufacturer will cover any broken parts or malfunctioning electronics.
|Water Resistance |
The degree to which the detector is resistant to water. Weatherproof implies that the detector is resistant to splashing and rain. Waterproof implies the detector is fully submerisble. (All models will offer waterproof search coils.)
