AFAIK, the molded ones I also tested in the past, use digital filtering,
while the canned use some analog what makes them more sensible.  The canned
ones also detect more trash.  Try a cigarrete lighter sparks close to a
canned and scope its digital output.  Even a fluorescent light 60Hz
blinking affect very much the canned output.
