    I found that headphones were a must have when I was in the hobby. It helps you pick up the signals better.

    This one is $99 and is analog.

    The one I sent the link for is the best one for a beginner in my opinion and it could potentially carry him for years if he becomes an avid hunter. He could literally be locating finds in minutes. I do not recommend analog for a beginner, although I prefer it.
    Headphones are a must for the sneak and for otherwise loud environments like beaches. Most detectors have a jack for headphones. Literally all Iíve ever seen have a headphone jack.

    Okay Ill give that one a try. Ordering it now. He has a pretty good set of headphones he uses for his xbox and online classes. I just have to get a 1/4 jack adapter for it. I also have my old E tool from when i was in the reserves that he can use to dig with. That should do him fine and if he wants anything else he has his own money for upgrades.lol.

    A small gardening shovel is all he needs and a 6" flat screwdriver for probing.

    There you go. My favorite probing tool is a makeshift ice pick using a shank of stainless car antenna and a wood dowel. Round off the end so you won’t damage finds. I have a larger wood handle garden trowel by True Value that has been my divot tool for years.
