Minelab X-Terra 705 Metal Detector

Minelab, the industry leader in metal detection technology has introduced Minelab's second generation X-Terra series. The X-Terra 705 is the flagship of the popular X-Terra line, and integrates Minelab’s proprietary VFLEX technology, which delivers unprecedented performance and flexibility.

“The X-Terra 705 is the world’s most flexible and configurable treasure detector. The marketplace has never seen a single machine that can hunt relics, coins and gold with such precision. Whether you’re beach combing, prospecting, hunting historic sites or just sweeping the local park, the X-Terra 705 will find treasures, coins and artifacts that other detectors have missed. With three field swappable (optional) accessory coils you’ll always be prepared for whatever contingency your hunt site and terrain has in store for you.”

As with all X-Terra models, the X-Terra 705 offers an ergonomically designed three-piece shaft with a new waterproof concentric coil design. Featuring rugged, lightweight construction, the X-Terra 705 is perfectly balanced for hours of comfortable use in the field. The X-Terra 705 will accept coils at three different frequencies; 3kHz, 7.5kHz and 18.75kHz.

Make 3 Metal Detectors With One X-Terra 705!

X-Terra 705 is the flagship of the Minelab X-Terra Series and offers the flexibility of three frequency coil options (3kHz, 7.5kHz, 18.75kHz), which are field swappable to hunt Relics, Coins or Gold. Key to its outstanding performance is Minelab's proprietary VFLEX technology, which utilizes digital signal processing with highly calibrated analog circuits, creating a new class of single frequency detectors. This approach yields superior sensitivity, stability and improved immunity to electromagnetic interference, as well as providing high-resolution target ID even on the deepest targets. For the X-Terra 705 user, this means you'll have the best metal detector available for your target choices.

The large LCD control display and intuitive interface allows users to become proficient in a fraction of the time it takes to master more complicated detectors. The X-Terra is smart and will remember your last settings, including saved patterns. It also allows the user to customize settings based on location and type of search with multi-notch accept / reject function and pre-programmed discrimination patterns.

The X-Terra Boasts Yet Another New and Radical Technology to Improve Single Frequency Detectors

VFLEX technology uses state of the art digital and mixed-signal components to enhance standard single frequency technology replacing most of the analogue circuitry with digital signal processing. The small amount of analogue circuitry still employed has been very carefully designed and calibrated to obtain the outstanding sensitivity, stability and repeatability required to match the performance of the processing in the digital domain.

This radical departure from traditional approaches to metal detector design has been made possible by advances in electronics that power personal digital assistants, cell phones and high fidelity portable audio equipment.

For the X-Terra user, this precision means dependable performance and improved immunity to environmental conditions such as ground mineralization, electromagnetic interference and temperature variations.

VFLEX technology requires coils that are accurately constructed and calibrated. Every time the detector starts up, the micro-controllers in the control box and the coil establish communication through a digital data link.

The X-Terra metal detector also introduces new graphic display pinpointing to put you right onto the target. The Pinpoint graphic display allows you to accurately dig the target with minimal ground disturbance, ideal for parks,
buildings and other sensitive sites, and gives a nice centered response even from large deeper targets.

Minelab's 2nd generation X-Terra detectors incorporate Minelab's proven VFLEX Technology. These versatile detectors give the opportunity for beginners and professionals alike to experience the excitement of discovery and adventure.

Information about which coil is installed is sent to the control box. The detector 'knows' what type of coil is attached and sets the appropriate operating parameters.

What a detector

Review by Douglas C on May 14, 2013

What can't I say about this detector, it has every thing in a land detector I ever wanted! From it's light weight but sturdy construction,easy set up, ergonomic hand grip, and deep seeking coil.which BTW there are about 10 available for this detector! Switching from from all metal mode to discriminate mode is a 1 touch breeze. Now lets talk about tones and signal recovery. My previous detectors had 2 to 4 tones that increased in volume the shallower the target was. The Minelab X-Terra 705 produces notes similar to a flute and signal recovery is lightning fast so if your'e in all metal mode and a nail is right next to a coin you will hear a distinctive tone for each as you pass the coil over them. I'm still learning my way around this detector but I'm excited to soon get a chance to use the Gold prospectors mode to see how that works. If it's anything like coin and relic mode I think it's going to be a blast!.

I wanted a good metal detector that does it all. After months of research, I decided on X-terra 705. It is easy to use, its lightweight, and it uses less batteries than most. I have found coins, junk, no gold yet but I am hopeful. I recommend this detector and Kellyco to anyone who wants a serious detector. GOOD HUNTING & BE SAFE!

Review by Mike H on March 29, 2012

After reading such great reviews on Minelab, I bought the 705 Xterra. I think it’s great for coin hunting. I have not had the chance to use it for gold detecting or on the beach but I will soon. It performs as well as advertised. I think it is a top notch unit for the good price.

Review by Dan B on May 29, 2011

Best detector I have ever owned! Worth every single penny! Don't forget to use the Auto Ground Tracking feature. Its one of my favorite features. I'm in terrible soil here in Arizona and it performs flawlessly! I bought it because its the best of both worlds. A coin and prospector detector all in one machine.

If you're going to use it search for gold nuggets buy the 6" DD 18.75kHz coil. The 6" coil is more sensitive to tiny nuggets. The stock 5x10 will find small gold but the 6" coil will find even smaller gold nuggets.

Review by Jay S on May 20, 2011

I had to study the manual a bit before I could remember how to navigate the advanced features but after 3 or 4 outings, the advanced tuning was easy. I also found that it had a particular response to harder to discriminate junk which made the targets predictable. The hardest junk to discriminate is big chunks of aluminum, but you will learn the sound and response is different. I spend more time searching for old coins and artifacts but also find myself in mining ghost towns where the DD coils are great. The machine is light weight and is now my go-to MD.
My only complaint is that not all the coils are totally water proof. I am very happy with the 6 inch 7.5 kHz in junk and homesteads. For prospecting it is very fun and has a great feature to balance out most annoying hot rocks and really speeds up the ground I cover. It won't find tiny specks but does respond well to sand sized gold close to the surface. Get good headphones and listen to the slightest changes. I love how well you can fine tune this thing. My opinion is, you get more than you paid for and the more you use it the more you'll love it!
