But the MX5 is ready to hit the beach with just the flip of a switch.
  • Easy Interface – Back lighting, easy to read displays and clear instructions make the MX5 one of the easiest detectors to use. Users who have tried this detector have been consistently impressed by how well designed the user interface is. If you want a detector that has a simple to use and easy to ready interface this detector is a great choice.
  • Quick Recovery Speed – Compare the MX5 to more expensive detectors and you will see that it is has a comparable recovery speed to some detectors that cost much more. The White’s MX5 quick recovery speed means that you won’t miss a target anywhere you go.
  • Auto Ground Tracking – With this detector you won’t have to constantly adjust the balance of your detector to avoid missing targets. The MX5 takes the guesswork out of ground balancing with automatic ground tracking. This feature is one of the most popular features on the detector and the reason that many people give the MX5 great reviews.

Whether a seasoned pro or novice, the reliable White’s MX5 can perform on a variety of terrain and is an optimal choice for any metal detectorist. It’s easy to use and has an intuitive interface but the power and capability to find targets other detectors would miss.

White's MX5 Metal Detector

White's Electronics MX5 is a high-performance Coin, Jewelry, Relics and Saltwater Beach Detector based on the renowned and highly popular MXT platform but with a newly redesigned feature set and easy to use interface. Some Metal Detectors in this price range only give you manual or some type of Fixed Ground Balancing, but not the MX5. You will get the same state-of-the-art fully automatic ground tracking or as White's calls it "AutoTrac". With AutoTrac the MX5 will offer excellent depth performance across many different ground conditions.

The MX5 has a lot of great features too, like an easy-to-use 20-Zone Discriminator with both Multi-Tone Audio and Visual Target Identification. Each zone may be accepted or rejected, providing the user with an easy way to ignore most of the common trash like iron, foil and pull tabs.

The new MX5 LCD Display and Control Buttons are arranged in a simple layout so making adjustments in the field could not be easier. Another area that White's put a lot of thought into was in the Audio Tones. In addition to the visual ID the MX5 can also produce a Tone ID. There are up to 2 tone modes depending on the search mode and you can select from 1 tone, 2 tones and up to 8 tones based on 8 VDI group number ranges giving the MX5 superior variable audio detection capabilities.

All MX5’s come with Whites VDI or Visual Display Indicator that will Target ID everything from +95 hot rocks all the way down to -95 iron / ferrous indications. That is 190 possible VDI target numbers so you know the MX5 is one very versatile metal detector when it comes to all the different types of possible targets that could be found.

With (4) operating modes like Coin, Beach, Pinpoint and even an All-Metal Mode plus AutoTrac Ground Balancing you can take this MX5 Metal Detector almost anywhere! Need more Depth? No problem, the MX5 works with all the White's Eclipse search coils!

I Love My MX5

Review by Dennis P on February 16, 2015

I have 5 metal detectors and the MX5 is my favorite park and dry beach machine. I also have a White's TDI for gold and wet beaches, a Fisher Gold Bug for gold nugget hunting and several White's beginner machines for introducing a new friend to the sport. My MX5 is my go-to machine for parks and dry beaches because of its ease of use and excellent discrimination capabilities and I highly recommend this machine to any one wanting a turn on and go detector. With a little practice you will be totally impressed!
I just got back from my last vacation of 2 weeks and I found over 100 coins, several rings and about 40 pieces of various jewelry items while traveling in several different states. The MX5 is a lot of Bang for the Buck.
I love my MX5 !!
