Joel, the so called 'Iron Audio' term is used differently, brand-to-brand.

For example, the XP ORX has 'Iron Volume' On or Off. It is not an Iron Audio 'lodness' adjustment, and it isn't restricted to an Iron- range or Ferrous-only function. It's simply sets the audio rejection point four targets that fall below the Discrimination setting. Even Targets in the mid- tone audio ID range. They refer to it as iron, but it affects both iron and non iron targets below the Disc. point.

Other models, such as the Minelab Vanquish 540, have an Iron Audio, sort of, function using their 'Horseshoe' button. If you are searching with their default Coin, Jewelry or Relic modes that have Low- end Iron-range rejection, then you activate the 'Horseshoe' button and that 'accepts' ALL Disc. segments which, in turn, then makes it an All-Metal Accept motion-basef Disc. mode which includes all of the Ferrous-range targets.

In addition, you can adjust the Iron Volume level of the Iron-range targets with the V-540.

Now we come to the Garrett Apex and you have the same options as the V-540 plus one additional choice. You can select the default discrimination modes such as US Coins, all Coins, Jewelry, Relic, and take advantage of there discrimination settings. Some will reject most of the low conductivity of trash, such as iron and foil, so you may or may not hear some of the more conductive low-tone Iron Range targets. Depending upon the search mode chosen, you may not hear any iron targets at all or you may hear some.

If you want to hear ALL of the Disc. segments to have full Iron-range Audio, you simply select the Zero mode of indicating there is zero discrimination for all metal acceptance have both ferrous and non-ferrous targets. Thus you then have Iron Audio.

The Apex allows the operator to adjust the Iron Range Volume level making this model fully functional to hear the presence of nearby iron trash contamination had a reduced loudness level.

Garrett does feature the button-selected Iron Audio response that is best used as a momentary function. It does not work properly when you are in the Zero mode. There has to be some Discrimination in use. This is a unique Iron Audio enhancement that needs to be learned and understood. It is different from what many consider Iron Aiudio to be, as I just described. I only use that function with my Apex devices periodically for specific needs. Instead, I just have my Disc. settings where I want them to hear a lot of the Iron trash in an area

Joel, you should have given the Apex some serious hunt-time.
