The new Apeks XTX200 that I bought on eBay new, manufactured in June 2018 makes a baffle noise and vibration when I exhale. Noise as if Im playing a single note on saxophone or air instrument. It occurs when the exhale is slow and less pressure. Also happens during inhale.

This does not happen on the ATX50 I bought on here used and serviced before receiving.

Can someone point me in a direction that this may be? is it the diaphram?

on the surface. Has never been under water yet.

It's really annoying!

My old 200 honked like a goose when dry.
As long as it's silent underwater everything is good.
