While the Pioneer EX's LCD is very accurate in identifying buried objects, you cannot always maintain the display screen in your field of vision. To get around this common limitation, the Bounty Hunter Pioneer EX metal detector incorporates an audio feedback system to alert the user to the metallic nature of buried objects.
The detector will sound one of three different tones, depending on the
type of metal detected:
Ferrous objects, such as iron and steel, will induce a bass tone. The smallest gold objects can also induce a bass tone.
Pull-tabs, newer pennies (post-1982), larger gold objects, zinc,
small brass objects, and most bottle screw caps will induce
medium tones. Many recent vintage foreign currencies will
induce medium tones. Medium tone objects will illuminate the
two center target indicators.
Silver and copper coins, larger brass objects, older pennies (pre-
1982), and highly oxidized metals will induce high tones.
Quarters, dimes and other precious coins fall into this category.
