Motorola’s APX™ XE RSM (Remote Speaker Microphone) is a rugged portable radio accessory designed to enhance firefighter communications in extreme conditions. Its two-microphone design provides exceptional noise suppression for loud environments so users can hear radio communications over background noise such as pumper trucks, sirens and tools. Features include: high-visibility impact green color; emergency activated strobe light visible up to 3 m (10 feet) in thick smoke; rugged IP68 submersibility; and exaggerated controls for bulky gloves including orange emergency button and prominent Push-To-Talk with tactile feedback and large volume switch.

Green as grass and extremely robust: this speaker-microphone was developed especially for firefighter communication. With its bright color and meaty design, this product signals what it is needed for. An extreme color for extreme situations.
