After being hit by a lorry that didn't see me as it pulled out of a side road whilst I was going past Pimlico tube station, I decided I'd had enough. Some people are saying that theirs wear out, however there are several parts that unscrew and I have taken mine apart and put it back together several times.

My suggestion, this is a piece of kit that works, there is nothing else out there that is as loud, and mine has saved my life several times already.

Not to be advised, and probably the best way to destroy your AirZound:

I took off the piddly little half litre bottle it comes with and attached it to a 2.5 litre fizzy drink bottle which I've attached with cable ties underneath my pannier, where it looks very cool (the hose is a little short for my liking, but I am told you can contact the manufacturer for a longer hose).

The bigger bottle means I have enough air on days when drivers are being real idiots, and otherwise normally lasts a week of commuting through heavy traffic (I pump it up to 120 atmospheres, but this is more than the manufacturer advises).

I also removed the little red "volume control" (it just pushes out) because it is pointless, you have bought the thing for volume! I have used the hole left behind to thread cable ties through it and hold the horn part firmly onto my handlebars.

Make sure you position the button so you can easily use it with your thumb even if you are using the breaks at the same time.

If you value your life and want to cycle in London, get one of these and use it.

My cycle ride to work involves a couple of nasty junctions on the A1000 in London. Cars join the road from the right at a set of traffic lights and have to cross three lanes in 100 meters to turn left at the next junction.

During rush hour it's very unpleasant if you're cycling in the middle lane heading straight on - cars lurch across without looking and I've had a couple of near misses with lorries who obviously hadn't seen me.

To give me a little more 'road presence' I bought an Air Zound 3. Make no mistake - it's LOUD. Car drivers are noticeably shocked and there's no chance of not being heard. It's also ideal for warning pedestrians who are about to stumble into your path.

Connecting it to a 12v compressor fills it in about 30 seconds and it lasts me a week or so of honks.

I've had it for six months now and it's still working - some reviews have mentioned problems at low temperatures, but it seems to be fine with a UK winter.

These things are a great idea, and they do work very well.
But they only last a few months at most before developing a fault.
I've gone through 2 of these in just over a year.
I'd rather pay more money for something that had a better build quality and was designed to last.
(I've also tried the various tricks that airzound suggest to fix these faults but to no avail. Plus, You'd think if they knew there were so many faults that do develop, then they try and improve on their designs)

this thing has saved my life on a number of occasions and I really mean that. It's an indispensable piece of kit, especially for fast commuters. The reason I give it 4 stars is because the mounting isn't adjustable - I had to mount it onto my seatpost as this was literally the only place on my bike where it would fit. Luckily I learned to operate it with my thigh so I can still keep my hands on the brakes while alerting other road-users to my presence.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PRODUCT (It really has saved my life)

I had done quite a bit of research on horns for bicycles both battery and air before purchasing the AirZound 3. I bought it because it was the best available at the time (Feb 12). Not the loudest but the loudest that sounded the closest to a car horn. There is a 140dB battery horn available but its shrieking sound would have little effect as no-one would associate it with 'a vehicle' and that's the effect you need. Leaving people thinking `What the hell was that?' is pointless. When you sound a horn on the road, other road users need to associate the sound it makes with that close to a car horn for it to be effective and the AirZound is not spot-on but it is the closest to date.

On unpacking the horn, I first noticed how cheap and tacky it felt and am very concerned for its longevity. On installing, I noticed that the way the horn fits into the handlebar mount is very poor and can easily be knocked off especially when reaching for the horn's activation button in a rush. The installation instructions state 'IMPORTANT: Make certain neither horn nor bottle will fall near wheel should either become dislodged.' I haven't seen a bicycle yet where the handlebars are not mounted directly above the front wheel making this a completely pointless statement to make. Instead, I decided to use one of the larger supplied zip ties to secure the horn to the mount permanently. The second issue I have with its construction is the bottle. It has the look and feel of a small fizzy drinks bottle partly covered with cloth. The bottle is significantly smaller than that of a standard cycle drinks bottle which means fit is very poor indeed. If you're going to design something to fit a 'standard' bottle cage, then make it 'standard' bottle SIZE!
