Field Testing a Savox Bone Conduction Mic, RSM and PTT

Posted by Mikael Westerlund on May 16, 2016 6:54:51 PM

We sent the Savox design team, approvals managers and sales people on a day trip to see some of the best "smoke diving" trainers in the Northern Hemisphere.  In this real simulation training exercise wearing full equipment, we wanted to ensure that our existing products meet real world challenges, and that we continue to design/manufacture products for real life situations.

Firefighters face intense scenarios every day, all while trying to save both property and lives. Firefighters and the equipment are subject to heat, smoke, water and even explosions as they work. At Savox, we work to test our products first-hand, stress testing each of our products to ensure they will last through even the harshest situations. By doing so we can continue to provide the great products and support our customers have come to expect.

Using Savox RSM-30 to Communicate with Friends While Skiing

Posted by Daniel Hackl on Jan 11, 2016 6:00:00 AM

A field test of push to touch over cellular (PoC) during 6 hours of skiing in Whistler, British Columbia

Thirty-seven centimeters (37cm or 15 inches) of fresh, fresh snow overnight in Whistler BC, home of the 2010 Winter Olympics, was a good enticement for us to make the decision to meet up with our friends for a Sunday snowboarding trip.


Whistler/Blackcomb is a huge ski area, and it’s easy to get separated from your friends and really difficult to find each other again.  Knowing that, I set up an ESChat account for me and my friends so we could communicate with each other on the ski hill. ESChat is a PTT (push-to-talk) app from SLA Corporation, “the leader in public safety push to talk” that turns your mobile phone into a two-way radio.  While some might think this might have been a little overkill for a day of snowboarding, I wanted to try out the Savox Promate RSM 30 radio accessory- especially the GPS functionality – as knowing the locations of your friends is a big bonus.
