Apex Iron Volume adjustment and other changes.

Andrew, I like the ample adjustment range of the Apex as there is a subtle but comfortable difference between '2' and '3' and I noticed you were using '3' in the video. Likely to hear during the video, and I like '3' when hunting in high wind or close to traffic or an otherwise noisy environment. Otherwise, I keep mine at '2'. I'm deaf, but it works well for me in most places just fine.

While the Apex doesn't offer a lot of individual mode adjustments, such as "Reactivity" or "Iron Bias" by title, that also means the Apex isn't too cluttered with such adjustments to annoy a lot of users who wouldn't understand what those settings might do, anyway. I quickly found the Apex to be quite enjoyable to use, especially the simple operation of the mode-selector and settings-adjustment.

Future Apex series models can offer more adjustment features, if Garrett Electronics so chooses, but for simple yet fun handling and performance, I am really liking the Apex. You don't even need to glance at the display after putting in a little hunt-time with the Apex to know what Mode you are in and quickly scroll to a different mode to check a target, or to quickly access the Settings button and go to the setting you want to change and make those adjustments.

Finally, a US detector maker who has brought us something new, different, very comfortable, and downright 'fun-to-use.' All we have left is FTP and who knows when we'll see any land-based NEW model from them and not a renamed and new decal shuffle amongst their three brands.

Joel, I'm finding the audio response to be OK.
