Improvements in Performance:

"Butterfly" search coil re-designed to pickup the smaller targets better and Deeper
Search coil provides better Separation of Targets over the previous coils.
Detector's sensitivity can be operated at a higher level with less noise and interference.
Faster and more powerful microprocessor with lower power consumption makes the Explorer SE Professional more responsive. Spend more time detecting; less time programming and recharging.
Menu structure gives easier access to key functions and makes Explorer SE Professional programming a breeze.
Fast learning curve; intuitive, easy-to-learn interface.
Audio modulated pinpoint mode makes target size and depth identification more reliable. Save valuable time recovering targets.
Simplified Iron Mask coordinates 0-31 with full ferrous discrimination capability. Easy correlation of Iron Mask settings with digital readout values; more user friendly function; simplifies use of Iron Mask.
Audio tone settings with new "Pitch Hold" mode for picking up even the faintest of target signals. Improved recovery rate for the smallest or deepest targets.
Quickstart settings make the learning curve on the Explorer SE Professional a more rewarding one.
New finer threshold and volume adjust controls. Fine tune "Threshold" and "Volume" to perfectly match operating conditions. More accurate and comfortable settings.
Improved threshold stability in noisy/trashy environment. Less false signals; cover more ground faster.
Larger target coordinates in digital screen and improved menu fonts. Easy to read user interface.

Minelab 2nd Edition Pro.

Andy White in lancs.U.K. - best
Having been a detecorist for many years, and have had lot of different machines, I now use my SE Pro with the greatest of confidence. Yes, there's quite a learning curve involved to master the Pro, but, generally speaking, it does its job easily. I am not going to make any great claims as to what I have found, needless to say that if you are in the right place, at the right time, then this is the right detector! Good luck!

Great Metal Detector.

Jesse Depew in Cape Canaveral Fl USA - best
This detector takes a little practice to get used to the sounds but you can find an emulator online for it. After having this for 4 months and only getting in about 24 hours per month, I have cleaned out a 2-mile stretch of beach from my house. I am finding dimes and pennies 15 to 19 inches down in wet or dry sand. Living near Kennedy space center I find rocket parts down to 2.5 feet. The only thing I don't like is the headphones. With a pair of Greyghost headphones, I can tell how deep the object is buried without looking at the display. I would recommend Minelab detectors to anyone wanting to upgrade from a starter detector to a serious machine. Just be ready to dig deep.
