Super-loud but build quality not quite up to scratch yet
on 4 October 2016
This is super loud. No matter how much fun it sounds like - don't let it off in the house to scare your partner. You will scare your partner for sure, as well as yourself, your dog and your hamster. My ears were ringing afterwards.
My only issue is build quality. The canister and tube are great. The horn itself seems to be quite sturdy, but the mounting onto the handlebars is aweful. It came with a single cable-tie to hold the horn onto a piece of plastic, similar to the image attached but white. The first time I press the horn, this tie snaps and leaves the horn dangling by the tube, bashing against the side of my bike.
So I thought I would fix it myself, and use 2 flat cable ties that are much more sturdy. It has held in place since, but every time I press the button, the horn moves around quite a bit. Cable ties aren't a good subsitute to good engineering, and the supplied cable tie certainly should be strong enough to hold the horn in place.
I'm still using the Air Zound, and would recommend it to anyone that cycles on roads regularly. Just a shame about this one thing, and I hope the next Air Zound fixes this!
