XP ORX vs DEUS Metal Detector Comparison

Since its initial release, the XP DEUS Metal Detector has become a favorite for detector enthusiasts. Its state of the art features and high-level of advanced functionality make it perfect for advanced detectorists who want a full range of control suitable for the most challenging hunting conditions.

More recently, XP released the ORX. Based on the tradition that made the DEUS so popular, the XP ORX is one of the lightest and most rugged detectors on the market. It is also one of the easiest to use. Merging the power of the DEUS with a more user-friendly, preprogrammed interface, the ORX is ready to go right out of the box even for those new to metal detectors.

Choosing Accessories

Both the XP ORX and XP DEUS are extremely customizable. Once you have decided between the “turn-on-and-go” convenience of the ORX or the feature-packed DEUS, it is simply a matter of choosing your headphones and coil.

Headphone

There are two main options with headphones, wired or wireless. Because both the ORX and DEUS are wireless units, even with wired headphones you will not be attached to the detector shaft itself. The remote control and display screen can be in your pocket or on your belt. Choose from either the full sized WS-5 wireless headphones or the light weight WS-4 backphone headphones for a hunting experience with zero wires.

Search Coils

Once you have chosen your model and headphones, it is just a matter of selecting a search coil. XP offers a range of coils for both the ORX and the DEUS in various sizes and coil configurations.
