The VX3 combines the premier performance of the Spectra V3i with the turn-on-and-go simplicity of the Coinmaster line of metal detector.

This top-of-the-line metal detector is as easy to use as an ATM with 8 preset hunting programs. You’ll be ready to discover coins, jewelry, gold, silver, and relics. Take it to the shore with a specialized beach mode.

Customization continues with 3 frequencies optimized for different targets: 2.5 kHz, 7.5 kHz, and 22.5 kHz.

When you come across a target, the SpectraGraph Target Signature shows on the VX3’s high-resolution color display, helping you decide whether the find is worth digging up.

The VX3 is ready to use with White’s SpectraSound wireless headphones. For traditional audio identification, choose from four modes of discrimination and optional tone ID with 191 different sounds.

There are essential settings for you to optionally adjust, but the Spectra VX3 is all about making treasure finding easy for every hunter — detecting targets with performance worthy of the Spectra name.

    Unboxing is simple so won’t go into that. The Screen is bold and big and full color, making it extremely easy to see, even in broad daylight. The machine is a little on the bulky side which might become tiresome for some, but is balanced well enough. It does seem to be a depth demon. I went to a favorite location and hunted in areas I’ve scoured before and was impressed at finding coins in the 10 inch range. A silver dime popped hard at 10 inches and pinpointing was right on target, something I was apprehensive about at first. I like being able to see each frequency of the 3, operate while detecting and during pinpointing. Silver seekers will be impressed, but the low tones while searching for gold, are unbeatable. Be sure to carry plenty of batteries if you plan to hunt a lot. 8 AA’s powers it up, and with the power it uses to go deep, you’ll need to keep extra’s around. Turning down the screen backlight will help and it doesn’t prohibit you from seeing the screen in detail.
    The preset programs are highly functional and you can modify them to suit your taste, but the turn on and go programs are professionally set. I have not used the wireless headphones that are available for this unit and the V3i but do use wired headphones when I hunt. The proprietary wireless headphones are pricey at 299.95. I see this as being the main reason that would prevent many users from using them, however, wireless would definitely have some advantages and more convenient. I’m still up in the air about them, but If I ever try them, I’ll post the findings on my blog and here on this site.
    Overall, it’s a powerhouse detector, with features usually only found on much more expensive units but with turn on and go simplicity. You won’t feel cheated the longer you use it. Quite the opposite. You’ll soon learn the more you explore the menu’s and sub menu’s, what all this machine is capable of.

    Hands down VX3 is the best!
    I just purchased my new VX3 a couple of weeks ago, and all can say is WOW! I’ve taken her out on quite a few outings this week and this machine is unbelievable. I’m not one to write to a company and blow their horn for them but, this is so unbelievable I had to.

    All I can say is Whites makes the best detectors for all applications!

    The best screen hands down
    This screen on the VX3 is hands down the best screen on ANY metal detector.. PERIOD. It’s sharp easy to read numbers are easy on the eyes and a dream to use at night. The VX3 is deep, how deep you ask? This detector is just as deep as detectors twice the cost!! You heard me right folks this is the last detector you’ll ever need to buy.
