    I have both and the carrot can run silent. That and it is supposed to be waterproof to 10 feet. The carrot has 6 settings. 3 with speaker and 3 without. The third setting in either speaker or silent has the furthest depth. I'd guess setting #2 is about the same as the original black one. The button is hard plastic, not soft rubber. I had two buttons on the original black one break on me.
    I like them both but if you need to be quiet, the carrot.
    Watch out for copies made in china.

    HH ALL!

    Me and my son both have the Carrot. We use them in the water about 75 percent of the time. Both have leaked and 1 is ruined. I put the twist cap on soo tight that I am the only 1 who can open them, sometimes I have to use channel locks to get them off. Just thought I might warn you. With that said, I haven't contacted Garrett about it yet.

    I wore through the tip of mine and the button rubber and my back seal never leaked. You might want to contact garrett, as that sounds off. also over tightening is not usually the solution with waterproofing stuff, which also if you have to do that is why I would contact garrett.

    I don’t have the black version but have used the orange one. It can run both audio and silent. I prefer silent with vibrations but it does emit audio both when turning it on and again turning it off. The orange is easier to spot when it gets dark but I am starting to tether my pinpointer so as not to leave it behind accidentally. When the battery starts getting weak the orange one acts erratically. I recently had erratic performance and nonperformance even with a new battery so it is currently being checked out by Garrett. All the best to you. thanks
