Hopefully the results of this poll will influence future radar detectors that are manufactured

I like Unidens because some tones are soft and some are harsh i usually go harsh since my music could be loud at times. Plus theres alot to choose from but to be honest most of them dont sound the best, the ones that do i like em alot.

That is tough to poll on.
I like Uniden Tone 2 for K and 9 for Ka...Escort Redline and Bel (970LR) K and Ka Tones....and of course Valentines.
They get your attention and not soft about it like other Companies.

I like several Ka alerts but my favorite is my Redline-O! The ramp and alert tone screaming during an instant on 35.5 shot will wake a dead man! I also love my R1's set on 9 for Ka band and Whistlers Ka alert as well. I hate ALL K band alert tones however!

The Bel KA tone is my favorite, also the redline-O KA band is excellent as well.

For me it is about more then tone (yet I still prefer V1), for me it is about the accuracy of the ramping of signal strength! Which I believe is no contest at all IE V1 has the best most accurate signal ramp.

I fear that when the latest V1 patents make it into any revised V1, that might all go away when LNAs are introduced along with digital processing.

I honestly like the Beltronics tones the best, probably because I cut my teeth on them. I hated Escort tones at first, but I got used to them as @Jag42 and I did so much testing over the years. I like Uniden just fine (including the standard Ka tone), and do like that Uniden gave us the ability to changes tones if we want.

The Redline O Ka tone has definitely been my favorite over the years, but the default Ka tone for Uniden has grown on me a lot, as well as the default laser tone. I switch back and forth between the two for my Ka alerts.

This one on Uniden.
When starting slower my wife says it sounds like a dog barking at us.
She wants that alert on her Pro M but sorry, no chance.
It's always better when your passengers take interest or giggle at your guard dog instead of telling you to shut that thing up.

I like the Uniden #5 on the R1/R3. I especially use it on the R1 with automute volume to 0 because of no gps muting on the R1. It really makes the R1 less bothersome for bsms at lower speeds. It works really well.

Guess I've never owned a v1 and haven't seen a video with one in a bit. Like escorts ka tone, catches my attention. Not a fan of unidens ka whistle chirp thing. Idk, maybe it's something that grows on you?

I love the Ka for V1 but also enjoy the bird chirp from my R7. Both are good in their own way.

The Ka alert tone on the V1 is as good as it gets!
