Looks like the mystery is unfolding:

There may be a good reason why PRC Navy reports direct to Beijing first. If they had reported to the OZ led team, it may be buried under layers of bureaucracy, considered spurious and never seen the light of day. But when reported to Beijing first and Xinhua announced to the whole world, then it cannot be dismissed and ignored.
Anyway, on TV news the others don't look happy that PRC Navy detected 37.5Hz pulse.
It may or may not be the plane's black box pinger. Wait + see.

It's the packaging... I don't see that much difference except one is handheld... for all you know, the American one is also made in China..
Nikon D750; FM2; FG; 55mm Micro Nikkor; 28-300 VR; 70-200 VR; Nikon V1 + 10-30mm
Do you dare to carry high tech equipment (supposely very big?) in that kind of small rubber boat?

Real-time meteorological data within the particular areas of Search and Locate / Search and Recovery (SAL / SAR) operations that I'm receiving now indicated fair weather conditions with slight sea state, 48 hours forecast looking very pleasant as well.
Ok my bad.
Hope they find the plane soon.

Why do they use handheld device from a rubber dinghy ?
The big ship engine produce lots of noise and make it difficult to hear the weak signal from black box.
The others are also using handheld device from a rubber dingy, the "high tech" equipment is the unmanned submarine that will go down to confirm the signal once the surface vessel detected the signal.
I eats, shoots & leaves
Aussie ship detects ping.

Massive Budget Cuts Would Redefine U.S. Military
Now can cut costs - buy hand held microphone on a steel pole to replace Poseidon P8.
