An audio Threshold setting can be very important.

Naturally it will depend on the make and model and search mode used. A lot of detectors are designed to function with a silent-search for their motion-based Discriminate mode. If the silent-sesrch behavior is tied in with an All Metal mode Threshold setting, then the All Metal mode should have a functional Threshold setting before you switch to the Silelnt-Search Disc. mode.

When searching in a Threshold-based Discrominate or All Metal mode it is important to have a proper Threshold 'hum'. I have hearing impairment in both ears to the point Hill Air Force Base would only let me have a Veteran Summer Hire job '82 thru '86 telling me I was deaf with the hearing tests each year. They
wouldn't let me have a full-time job.

When I use any of my detectors in the Threshold-based All Metal mode I always use a Threshold setting.
