Great detectorThis is my first metal detector. I am very impressed with this machines capabilities. I am able to locate items through any soils and under rocks no problem. I have already found two Civil War belt buckles as well as other neat things. The buckles were 12-16" below the surface. This detector has many of the same options that high dollar machines have and it works just as good. I definitely recommend this machine for on land detecting!

Fantastic detector for the price.I am new to detecting but I researched many, many other detectors and had the chance to try a few. You definitely get your money's worth with this one. Did the same with pen-pointers. I highly recommend the Garrett pro pointer. It is $110.00 plus shipping @ Cabelas. The perfect set in my opinion. Dig safe and stay legal. Best of luck. -THE BOSS-

Pretty goodI have had this for about a year and have used it enough for a thorough review. It works well, I just got back from the Texas coast. I didn't find anything valuable but I think it's my skill, I am a noob. It will find any buried soda can or coin very easily. The only down side is that you have to keep adjusting the volume. Extremely loud

Does this detector come with headphones? I do not see them listed in the spec sheet.
Asked by: Lookinforgold
Hello Looking for gold,
The detector has a 1/8” & 1/4” headphone jack on the left side of the
housing. Optional Headphones come standard with a 1/8” stereo plug (the 1/4”
adapter is not required). When the headphone jack is connected, speaker audio is disabled. Using
a detector with headphones facilitates detection of the weakest signals
and also extends the battery life.This device is to be used with interconnecting cables/headphone cables shorter than three meters.

How deep will it penetrate?
Asked by: something1
The Bounty Hunter Teknetics Alpha 2000 Metal Detector will detect a coin-sized object, like a quarter, to a distance of about 9” from the search coil. Detectability is directly related to the size of the metal
object -- the larger the object, the deeper it can be detected.
