DR.ÖTEK MT-XR Metal Detector Review

30 reviews between Apr 21, 2023 and Jun 16, 2023.

The DR.ÖTEK metal detector is a good option for amateur treasure hunters. It's lightweight, easy to use, and comes with a digging tool, headphones, and a carrying bag. The pinpoint feature works well, and it can differentiate between ferrous and non-ferrous metals. However, some reviewers have reported false alerts, especially near wet sand. Additionally, the pinpointer sometimes struggles to detect gold and silver. Overall, the DR.ÖTEK MT-XR is an affordable detector and a great option for beginners.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners and hobbyists!!

    I have wanted to try my hand at metal detecting for a while. After reading the reviews and watching several videos on YouTube, I decided to try the DR.ÖTEK Metal Detector. So far I have been very pleased with it. It’s user friendly and I love how lightweight it is because I often spend hours at a time, several days a week exploring.

  • 4.0 out of 5 stars Works great. Volume knob seems to shut off unit have to hit it fast. It is by the power button

    Nice unit. Found a few things like nails and beer can. Bought the pinpointer too. Only issue is the volume button next to the power button seem to shut off the unit if held. Think it is to close to the power button and coupled some way mechanically. Yes I am sure I am just pushing just the volume button. If you hit it fast it will change the volume and backlight. To long and the unti shuts off. Overall I would recommend it and the pinpointer. Last detector I had was some Radio Shack one from the 80s. Tnx Dr Otek

  • 4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price.

    I bought this dr otek because I wasn't sure if I was gonna like detecting..... well..... my 3rd time out and found a gold ring on my local beach! For the price, this is a good detector.... the only issue I have is I can't go toward the water. Once the sand is somewhat wet, the detector goes crazy! Turned the sensitivity down and still crazy. But hey, paid about $100 for it! Get what you pay for! So if you want to test out the hobby, then this is a good start!

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars Great metal detector

    I bought this detector as an upgrade from my old detector. I love it! It arrived on time and easy to put together. My son and I started using it immediately around the yard. We found that it was easy to use after a few sensitivity tweaks. I recommend this detector to any amateur treasure hunters. I look forward to the many treasure hunting adventures with my boys.

    • 5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the price would lead you to believe

      Bought it as a hobby. Have since used it to find countless lost keys.
      Differentiates between ferrous and non-ferrous very well. I've had it a couple years now, and I'd say it works as good or better than anyone's I've stood in the field with...
      Oh, and their Pinpointer is nice too! (TBH, the vibrator in the pointer quit working after 2 years, but the lights still work...
      All in all, a lot more bang for your buck than a gold digger..

    • 5.0 out of 5 stars Great detector for the money

      My first detector and after lots of research I finally went with the Dr. Otek MT-XR. The first time out I found a lot more items than I expected to. It was easy to assemble and use. Its light weight and came with head phones bag and digging tool and also had a deal if you purchased the MT6-PRO with it, I’m happy I purchased both together, it’s made my first experience exciting very productive. If you’re new or looking to upgrade, I’m my opinion this is a great detector to get and you won’t break the bank. I highly recommend it and my purchase another for my daughter who is showing interest in detecting.

    • 5.0 out of 5 stars I like it.

      I am a newby to this hobby. I purchased a competitors product a few weeks ago and never used it. It was heavy and not easy to use. Dr Otek arrived and was easy to assemble, light weight and easy to use. I watched videos on YouTube, and went out in my yard to test it. I immediately hit a target surrounded by iron items. It was only a brass ball off a lamp but it was over 4 inched deep. Don't want to dig up my yard, so I'm headed to the beach. Excited!

      It detects things that suddenly vanish. Things that it keeps signals of, I dig and dig and don't find things. I had high hopes for this, but not anymore... all that I am left with is just holes.

    • 4.0 out of 5 stars Good first impression

      I’m a novice at metal detecting. As soon as ups dropped the pkg I opened and commenced putting the detector together. Assembly was reasonably easy. With only having read the manual enough to know that turning it on is in “All” mode, I set off through the woods near my home. My first find, I have to admit, was quite exciting. The tone was loud and a higher number. I started digging. The trowel is heavy duty, I’m impressed with it. I dug, tested the debris and the hole. The “treasure” was still in the hole. I dug more and viôla, my treasure was a 10” length of rusty iron pipe. And yet, the hole is still pinging! I dig more and find an old flat aluminum relic. So, while I’m not instantly rich, I can say the detector is intuitive such that a newby can have success right out of the box. And while I can see I have a lot to learn to discern between trash and treasure, it really was a fun activity.

      Just got my metal detector today. Couldn’t wait to try it out, so went in my back yard & within 15 minutes I got a strong signal. Buried in a pill container were these coins. Couple $1 coins, Asian coins,1 Canadian. Was easy to set up & settings were great!! Very pleased!

      The plastic pieces feel like they will strip way too easily. The display part is cheap plastic that one accident drop and that’s all she wrote.
      I truly did have higher expectations for the price. That’s on me. But I know good vs garbage and let’s just say it’s obvious.

    • 4.0 out of 5 stars Works ok for the money

      It works pretty well for the money paid. My husband has found many metal objects around the property with my grandchildren. It beeps at times when there is nothing there, and will beep one time in a certain place, but not again, so I think it gives false readings often. It is a good toy for grandpa and the grandkids.
