About Us

Being adventure lovers, we enjoy finding awesome things that are hidden in the earth. We get excited finding coins, gold, silver, and other metals.  Metal detecting is not just our hobby, but our profession, so we always need to stay up to date on the latest metal detector technology.

Sometimes we may spend hours combing the beach or scanning an old forest before we find anything interesting.  This is the only way to find special coins, relics, jewelry, or something that is a total surprise even for us.  Sometimes, it depends on the place or just dumb luck if we return empty handed or come home with a lot of finds.  But, we always enjoy the experience and the thrill of never knowing if you are going to find the treasure you seek.

This is a special time when we get to escape the city and our busy lives, have fun, and spend some quality time with nature and our families.

Why I Created MetalDetectorLab.com

Metal Detector Lab is a way to share my passion and experience with others.

In the past few years, I have used several metal detectors and some of them were awesome, but some were significantly hyped and not worth the money. Being a regular user of metal detectors, I have decided to share my experience and research in hopes that it may help others.

I have done in-depth research, and hands-on experience, about different metal detectors for different uses.  Whether you are going to buy a metal detector for the beach, prospecting for gold, or relic hunting, you need something that suits the location.  I have also done research to find the metal detectors for beginners, so if you are new to the hobby you are going to enjoy browsing the site.

If you are teaching your kids about metal detecting, we also have lists of the best metal detectors for kids.

We do our best to provide in-depth and well-researched metal detector reviews to our readers. We try to know the best uses of each metal detector along with their cons (if any) so you will get the best idea of what you are going to buy before you invest.

After reading our reviews if you have any questions about choosing the right metal detector for your needs, feel free to let us know via the Contact Us page or in the comments, I will be glad to answer your questions.
