XP Deus Wireless Ws4 / Ws5 Headphone New Features

Recommended Posts

This is not news per se since it happened last year. Still, it is a big deal because the menu additions in my opinion make lower price versions of the XP Deus without the  high price controller much more palatable. The version 5 update includes some new features to the WS4 and WS5 wireless headphones:

  • Reactivity
  • TX Power
  • Automatic Ground Tracking
  • Frequency offset (35 frequencies with the new X35)
  • Iron volume
  • Audio Response

These new functions are in addition to those already available via the headphones:

  • Discrimination
  • Sensitivity
  • 4 Frequencies
  • Ground Balance
  • Choice of 1 – 5 audio tones plus, VCO Pitch and Full Tone option.
  • 10 Factory Programs plus empty slots for user custom programs.
  • LCD target identification
  • Volume control
  • Coil change menu
  • Battery level indicator

This all means that the $799 XP Deus Starter Package now has a lot of capability that was previously lacking without the high price full controller. The Starter Package includes FX-02 Wired Backphone Headphones + WS4 Display + 9" or 11" X35 Coil with Telescopic Pole MSRP: $1100 Introductory Price: $799

  • Control the entire detector from just the WS4 Display module alone
  • Adjust sensitivity, discrimination and ground balance
  • Choose your Frequency: From 3.7kHz to 27.7kHz
  • Adjust your volume and select multi-tones
  • Choose your operating program
  • WS4 Display may be used as a Wireless headphone with included headband

So what is the catch? Numerous small options are missing and only available from the main controller, but the big one is the inability to make software updates without the main controller. Anyone buying a Starter Package wants to make sure the unit is pre-loaded with the latest stable version of the software, currently Version 5.2

Other features inaccessible from the headphone controller include the pinpoint button, silencer function, adjustable multitones, notch/multinotch, ground notch, and the four non-motion modes.

With the new XP ORX being offered as a "lower price alternative to the Deus" I decided it was time to find out just what the capability is of the low price Deus options and how they end up comparing to the XP ORX. The fact is the base version of the Deus is actually $100 less than the XP Orx so this would seem to be an interesting line of inquiry.

Good write up Steve. A buddy of mine just hit me up about this set up...wanted to know if he could get away without the remote. As relic hunters, I say no silencer function, no bueno.

      When hooking up to charge LED is not lighting up except with feeble glow. Charger cables and 
      contact were checked. If not lighting up bright do I assume a faulty coil battery?,  how do I know?
      thanks

      A friend and I spent a couple days swinging around a couple junk filled ghost towns. I am very familiar with the Xp deus. I had also brought with the new to me Xp ORX. I spent my time swinging both the deus/ORX with the 9 Hf, 9x5Hf and my LF 11x13 coils. I found some good stuff and was really able to put the new ORX to work. I kept the ORX equipped with the 9x5hf coil. Deus with 9Hf coil. Also have my 11x13 on a straight shaft to easily switch to that. These site have been hit hard over the last few years by me and a ton of other people and have seen 3 to 4 large group hunts. Heres a few pics

      Update DEUS 5.21:
      This update 5.21 corrects sleep power issues with the DEUS headphones on version 5.2. The DEUS 5.2 can sometimes place the headphones into an unwanted standby mode as they can be turned on during charging, resulting in a slow battery discharge.
