Minelab EQUINOX 600 Metal Detector
with 11" Double-D Smart Coil and Wired Headphones.

With innovative new multi-frequency technology, the EQUINOX 600 Metal Detector is a true all-purpose metal detector.

The EQUINOX 600 has a generous range of volume and tone options, including Single Tone, Two Tone, Five Tone, and Fifty Tone options. The point where ferrous tones shift to non-ferrous tones may be adjusted; as can the volume of the ferrous tone. The EQUINOX 600 also features three levels of Detect Speed.

The EQUINOX 600 and EQUINOX 800, are set up identically and will have identical performance to each other, under the same conditions. The EQUINOX 600 is limited to 5 kHz, 10 kHz, and 15 kHz single frequencies. This does not mean that the 600 is not employing the full multi-frequency range as part of the Multi-IQ processing. Multi-frequency operation is identical in the two models and provides the same maximum signal response to targets in Park, Field and Beach Detect Modes.The real magic of EQUINOX is in the Multi-IQ technology (not the single frequencies), therefore you can rest assured the EQUINOX 600 matches the EQUINOX 800 in this regard.​

The EQUINOX 600 is a powerhouse at an incredibly low price.


Multi IQ Spectrum

Low frequencies give more depth on large targets, and high frequencies are usually more sensitive to small targets.

With EQUINOX you can operate across the full spectrum of frequencies simultaneously for maximum results.

EQUINOX Comparison Sheet

* 20 kHz and 40 kHz are NOT available as single operating frequencies in EQUINOX 600. The Multi-IQ frequency ranges, as shown above, are the same for both EQUINOX 600 and 800.

Glad I switched

Review by a2thej on September 12, 2019

I've used several detectors over the past 4 years. I mostly hunt at a saltwater beach with black sand. Other detectors required the sensitivity to be turned down or were frustrating with the constant chattering. Neither were ideal to say the least. I sold 2 other detectors (1 was a multi purpose water proof model) to purchase the Equinox 600. First time I took it to the beach, it was a whole different ballgame. Quiet, deep and responsive. Swung it for 5 hours and still had 2 bars (out of 3) on the internal rechargeable li-on battery. This detector reminds me of a medical grade instrument. It's that clear, accurate and easy to use. Let me put it like this-- nearly all the fellow detectorist (lol) I see at the beach swing the 600 or 800. It just plain works. You won't be disappointed either.

The beast

Review by Frank 215 on August 30, 2019

Minelab 600 is a beast. The multi frequency is so nice if your looking for a deep detector. You got it with this one and also one of the best beach and under water detector I have ever used.

Excellent quality and very fast delivery.

Review by Kip on August 29, 2019

I was very surprised on how fast my Minelab Equinox 600 arrived. I was happy in how the condition the package was delivered also, no bumps or bruises. The free accessories were not included with my purchased but Kellyco Metal Detectors made good and shipped them right out the same day I called their customer service and explained that when my purchase/package arrived it did not included my free accessories. Disappointed that Minelab themselves didn't include a free hat in there packaging; I would've worn it and they would've gotten free or low cost advertisement.

The Equinox 600 is excelent

Review by Scooter on August 26, 2019

This is my first metal detector. I have used it twice and already finding some nice things. The weight is great and very easy to use. Thank you for filling my order

super easy to use

Review by kennyb on August 20, 2019

This is my 3rd detector from Minelab started off with the 305 an the 705 but i have to say this 600 is super easy to use compared to the other two.

Simply Terrific

Review by Juan Val Dez on August 20, 2019

Cant say enough about this multi-frequency machine. It's ability to id targets is amazing. I suspect this is due to it's interrogation of several return frequencies rather than a single one. It's probably the quietest machine I've used and when it gives you a signal you can be sure there is something there. Using a single freq. machine now leaves me feeling that I am at a disadvantage. The build quality is solid. The machine does feel slightly nose heavy in my opinion but due to its light weight I can counter balance it without making it a pain to swing all day. The use of Blue Tooth opens the door to any number of wireless headphones and I bought some low latency ones for less than $50. Other than being slightly nose heavy, which is due to the coil, I can't say there is anything I would change about this machine. I'll be getting a larger coil in the near future to cover more ground. Job well done Minelab!!!!

awesome

Review by libra787 on August 10, 2019

we are a son and mother metal detectors my other detector is a bounty hunter I does not do well on wet sand so I'm loving my equinox

My first legitimate underwater find with the nox 600!

Review by chris on August 01, 2019

Have taken the equinox to the beach a few times now in the last year, but hadn't had the opportunity to use it for very long each time.
On my trip last month, the waves were very calm, less than a half foot, so spent some time in the water with it using beach 2. It was going crazy, constantly making all kinds of noise in the water. Finally remembered how to adjust the ground balance, sensitivity, etc. and it quieted right down. Dead silent, until it beeped. Readout number (24-25) indicated it was in the dime range. Sure enough I had found my first ever dime underwater in a matter of a few seconds after getting the machine properly tuned for the conditions that day.

Love it!

Review by Bryan on July 19, 2019

Received the Equinox 600 Wednesday and so far I absolutely love it. I took it to my favorite lake and couldn't believe the depth. I found a dime at 9 inches in the wet sand. There are several large power lines not too far from the beach, but it did not make a difference. It was very quiet. I also purchased the 6 inch coil because I enjoy metal detecting play grounds, and am very happy with it as well. The people at Kellyco were amazing to work with. Will definitely be back! Thanks Kellyco!

Wow!

Review by Jayhawker on June 30, 2019

Had my metal detectors stolen and had to update from a very functional 20 year old fisher. No offense but this ain’t grandmas metal detector, simple yet advanced, it goes deep. Lightweight, balanced, sensitive and very usable setups. Got it going great in hours not weeks or months. I highly recommend this product. Can’t wait to use it more.

Great Detector

Review by avanahall on April 04, 2019

I am a newbie to metal detecting and bought this detector. Out of the box it was super simple to use since it has presets of Beach, beach water, park and field. I have used it about 7 times on the beach and have found 2 necklace pendants, lots of quarters and dimes. I have nothing to compare it with but feel it is very good and solid as I rarely get alerted to junk metal and it gives you a minus number when it is garbage. The coil is large. perfect for trying to detect in large areas like a beach. I am hooked and my young adult daughter and I have had a blast. I can totally recommend the Equanox 600

Already Loving It

Review by Ron on March 16, 2019

Took this out to an area I had been hunting with my AT Pro (a machine that I also like), and I couldn't believe the relics that began popping out of the ground. It is a turn on and go machine with the capabilities to do much more individual adjustments as needed. I have only had it about a week and I am loving it!!

Equinox 600 Arrived and is Ready to Go

Review by Chris - FL Panhandle Swinger on May 04, 2018

Truthfully I'd say 4.8 stars, only because of lack of included charger block. Received my pre-ordered Equinox 600 yesterday. Kellyco had estimated about a month and they were spot on!. Awesome customer service as with each of my orders through them. Box arrived in perfect condition. All parts were in the box. Assembly is quick and easy. A quick test gave me the numbers of it's display for the various gold, silver and coins for which I dirt fish. The machine is light, nicely balanced and adjusted perfectly to my height (over 6 feet). My ONLY disappointment is that the company elected to use a USB rechargeable battery and NOT include a USB brick to plug into the wall. There is a large sheet included in the box saying that you can use your standard Apple or Samsung phone charger as they are 2 amp output chargers. Strangely, we have 3 different Samsung phone chargers and they only output 1 AMP. Very disheartening after seeing the giant WARNING to NOT use a 1 amp output charger block as it will overheat and shut down. Only use the standard laptop .5 amp (which takes up to 18 hours to charge your machine) or use the "standard" 2 amp output phone chargers, which mine aren't. Luckily, my iPad charger is the correct voltage and a 2 amp output, so the machine charged in just under 4 hours as advertised. Still, selling what is effectively a $650 paperweight without an included charger and then wanting customers to pay an estimated $40 dollars EXTRA for what Minelab calls an "accessory" which is REALLY "necessary equipment", leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. This isn't Kellyco's fault, it was Minelab's poor decision. Anyway, off to the beach tomorrow to do some much-anticipated salt-water dirt-fishing. Happy Hunting everyone.
