Deteknix Quest PRO 2 upgrade. Plus new coils

The Deteknix Quest PRO metal detector got an upgrade. There are lots of serious changes, so the upgraded machine should be declared the second version (e.g., the Deteknix Quest PRO 2), but it’s up to the manufacturer to decide. Plus, Deteknix has released new coils.

Firmware & hardware


The Deteknix Quest PRO now comes with an additional button. The manufacturer hasn’t explained yet what the functions of this button are. On the back of the control box there is also a flashlight pointed at the coil. Together with the screen backlight, this flashlight is a fairly useful option.


At the same place, under the flashlight, now there is a speaker grill. The manufacturer promises a really loud audio response.

The Deteknix Quest PRO firmware is completely remade. And most important of all, the manufacturer lays emphasis on the honest 3 meter submersion.



The first version of the Deteknix Quest PRO is supplied with a 2-piece shaft. Its second version comes with a 3-piece one.

Search coils


There are new coils released by the manufacturer for the Deteknix Quest PRO: a large 15″ DD and a sniper 5″ DD.

New headphones?


It is likely that Deteknix has supplied its machine with new headphones. Externally they look great. The jack is obviously waterproof. I wonder whether the headphones are for land use only, or they can also be used underwater.

All about the Deteknix Quest PRO metal detector is collected here (news, videos, comparisons, tests) and on Knowledgebase pages (there is a photo report of the Quest PRO opened, what’s inside the device).

  • HI,that 15″DD , 9.5″ and 5″ searchcoil look like CORS/NEL COILS, and the controlbox looks like they raided makro instead of first texas with QP2! Why not just build a real machine instead of mugging other manufacturers off alledgedly! PATENTS ARE WORTHLESS IF THIS BECOMES COMMON PRACTICE! NO MALICE INTENDED! JUST MY OWN OPINION. gl hh atb

    • You assume? Malice may not be your intention but your statement comes off that way.. But your right to an opinion is respected! Let’s give Quest a chance! Regards.

    • Quest didn’t rip off anyone. This is the sort of misinformation that First Texas like to spread. It’s completely false and without grounds. Where is the there a First Texas made detector that looks anything like the Quest Pro? There isn’t and never has been one. Likewise, the 15″ coil doesn’t look like a Nel or Cors. All coils from all manufacturers share similarities, it is the nature of the product.

      All this vitriol directed at Quest is just sour grapes from an old and lagging US manufacturer who can’t keep up with what is happening in the detecting industry. Their only recourse is to fire off an ill-thought-out court case…which failed by the way, and then spread misinformation and rumour in the hopes of saving their flagging sales.

      It is now 2020. What have Fisher and Teknetics done in the years since the Quest Pro’s release? Nothing! Now they not only have Quest making them look redundant but Garrett is about to batter them into the land of irrelevance with the Ace Apex.

      No malice intended, just my opinion ;)
