The Minelab Manticore metal detector stands out with its cutting-edge technology, particularly the Multi-IQ+ engine. This high-power simultaneous multi-frequency technology enables the Manticore to detect a wide range of targets by operating across the full spectrum of frequencies simultaneously. This results in maximum depth and sensitivity, allowing users to locate both large and small targets effectively, regardless of the terrain.

Another notable feature is the advanced 2D ID map system with Target Trace, which provides a detailed visualization of target information. This system helps users distinguish between different types of targets more accurately, reducing the chances of digging up unwanted items. Additionally, the Manticore's customizable audio settings allow users to adjust the tone, pitch, and volume, tailoring the detector's feedback to their preferences for a more intuitive and efficient detection experience​.

The Manticore is also designed with robust waterproof capabilities, making it suitable for underwater exploration up to 5 meters (16 feet) with an IP68 rating. This feature, combined with its enhanced EMI immunity, ensures reliable performance even in challenging environmental conditions. The included accessories in the Manticore package are the Minelab ML-105 wireless low latency headphones, a USB charging cable, five screen protectors, a 3.5 mm headphone audio cable, and a headphone case
