    Advanced features in a beginner-friendly interface.

    Compared to the standard Barryvox, Mammut's Barryvox S Beacon has more advanced features that appeal to experienced mountaineers, guides, and backcountry skiers and splitboarders. That's not to say this beacon is too advanced for beginners in the backcountry; on the contrary, it still features the same beginner-friendly interface (single switch, single button, and separate flagging button) that makes the standard Barryvox so easy to learn how to use. In fact, the Barryvox S features a smart search display with a dynamic icon that moves with you down slide paths and assists in proper probe planting to refine your avy techniques whether you're practicing or using what you practice for real emergencies.

    Along with this smart search display, the Barryvox S also shows a similar readout to the standard Barryvox, with distance, direction, and number of burial victims showing clearly whether you have goggles on or off. Since there's more information on the display, Mammut made this Barryvox S Beacon's screen slightly larger than the standard model. This model also accepts lithium batteries as well as alkaline, and lithium batteries have proven to last longer in harsher climates. For more advanced use, the Barryvox S can switch from digital to analog. Now both Barryvox beacons boast an extended 70-meter range, but in analog mode, this beacon can extend its range to 80 meters. 
    • Advanced beacon for dedicated backcountry skiers and splitboarders
    • Triple antenna boasts a massive 70-meter range in digital mode
    • Pro search option switches to analog for an even greater range
    • Smart search with dynamic icon assists with guidance while searching

    Even Better Than the Pulse

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    For the past three years, I used Barryvox Pulse. This year I upgraded to the Barryvox S. Here's what I've found so far:

    Simple to use out of the box or if you want to take advantage of the advanced menu functions, adjusting options is now a breeze.

    The button and menu set-up is only a little bit different but much more intuitive and easy to move through.

    During multiple burial scenarios, the S locks more quickly on the second/third burials signals after marking the previous one.

    The larger screen on the new S allows for helpful information icons and prompts to guide users through the search process.

    While the Barryvox Pulse is still a top-of-the-line beacon, if you're in the market for a new beacon, the “S” is a strong choice.

    way simpler than I thought

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great beacon. Range is only a little longer than my Pulse, but a lot longer when the beacons aren't lined up exactly. The navigation is way easier than the pulse. The description makes it sound like this is only for advanced users, but really most of the features are useful for anyone and you dont need to do anything to use them, it's automatic. My buddy who is a beginner was doing 3-burial searches in under 5 minutes within one short parcitice session. The only thing that is for experienced people is the pro search, which is still easier than on my pulse, and anyone who is going to practice micro strips will want this.

    Unanswered Question

    Does it still detect if a victim is breathing? The old ones could detect micro movements.
