Radar Detector Review '05
Unabridged Version 

Valentine One Escort 8500 X50 Beltronics RX65

Alert Volume

The Bel Rx65 Pro had the best (loudest) volume as compared to the other two radar detectors.  The Valentine One was a very close second and the Escort 8500 X50 trailed in this regard even when its volume level was set to “Loud” (maximum) programmatically.  Both the Bel and the Valentine had the greater ability to cut through the music we were playing.

If you are driving to music with the Escort 8500 X50, you’ll have to be a bit more attentive. We prefer the simplicity and the effectiveness of the RX65 and would like to see the X50’s two volume ranges combined and then expanded upon to be more in line with the other radar detectors.

The older Valentine V1.7's volume was similar in level to the Escort 8500 X50.

The Beltronics RX65 Pro has the ability to have its volume changed remotely through the use of its power-cord so changes can be easily made without reaching or even taking your eyes off of the road.
