The volume is adjustable, and very adequate.
JOAT
Very simple to do, just plug it into your Windows computer and drag your mp3 file onto it just like you would do for a thumb drive.
Bob
This is a terrible product with no technical support.

This cheaply made product looks more like a toy or novelty than a doorbell. The Product Description and Technical Details state this model accepts an SD card of up to 32 GB and includes a 2 GB SD card. It does not. The package reads SWHOM-DC840B-GL MP3 DJ Doormaster. From the manufacturer's website, the description and technical details given for the purchased product are actually for a different product SWADS-DOORCH, which can accept a 32 GB SD card and is available on the manufacturer's website for $49.99.

I wanted a cheesy doorbell, but more than that, I wanted a specific cheesy doorbell that complements a particular theme. This device provides that.

The base station itself is of reasonable construction. It takes 3 AA batteries, not included. You need to remove them before plugging into the USB port, because both the USB power and battery outputs are connected together. This can be annoying if you're plugging it into your computer a bunch, but it also means that you can operate it without batteries using a cell phone charger or similar. The speaker is of acceptable quality and volume; not great, but I really only need it for a small space.

The button appears well-sealed and I expect it to survive outside for some time. It takes a single 12V A23 battery, included, which isn't stocked at my usual stores but isn't a problem to find either. There is a perceptible but sub-second delay between releasing the button and the start of the chime (quite unlike a normal wired doorbell), but the button has a blue LED when you press it to provide some form of immediate feedback.

I had no problems preparing and copying files to the device. I used a Mac, so I did not install the included Windows software, and honestly I wouldn't use that anyway. The base station appears as a standard FAT32-formatted 100 MB USB mass storage device; it requires no drivers.

I prepared a chime by trimming down the source audio with "Fission", then exported it as a WAV. The manual specifically recommends 128 kbps CBR MP3s, and while Fission can prepare files matching those specifications, I opted to use `lame` instead. I encoded using `lame --preset cbr 128 filename.wav`, copied the resulting .mp3 to the device, and ejected the volume.

DO NOT BUY.

The product doesn't work. After transferring MP3 files to it it was able to play the first file once. I called Swann and their technical support was useless. The consultant I spoke to had never seen the device, let alone used it.

The 'solution' I found (without their help) was this: In order to play an MP3 the device must be formatted and ONE MP3 only loaded onto it. If you attempt to load multiple MP3s and change tracks, then the device fails and won't play a thing.

This is a terrible product with no technical support. If it worked properly, it would be great. But it doesn't.

DO NOT BUY.

It sounds off loud and clear making it easy to hear in any area of the house. The dog doesn't recognize it as a doorbell and is less upset.

I am very disappointed in the quality of this product. Great for a novelty, but useless as a door chime. I liked the idea of being able to use my own mp3 sounds BUT We are both hard of hearing due to age, but have difficulty hearing the sounds even when standing next to the door chime. There is no volume adjustment and the speaker is on the back of the doorbell where it is mounted on the wall. I am returning it and purchasing a Heath Zenith product instead.

Make sure you test it every day. I don't get a lot of visitors so I didn't know it didn't work at all until after the Amazon return policy elapsed.

DOESN'T WORK AT ALL!!

There seem to be only a few USB programmable doorbells. This one has good sound, and it is very easy to use.

To add a tune, just connect the speaker box to a PC using a USB port, and transfer an mp3 file, just like using a travel drive.

This is a doorbell, but I use it as a portable call button or pager. When I am needed as a care giver, it is great to have an arousing tune of my choice to wake me from sleep, rather than a jolting alarm. The volume is adjustable, and very adequate. The fidelity is pretty good. The blue strobe is also a nice feature.

For the tune I am presently using Hawaii Five-O, downloaded from the internet as an mp3 file. Another good choice for a tune, from my experience, is the Lone Ranger or William Tell Overture.

If you do not like the mp3 editor that is supplied, there are many free editors. I use Audacity.

The only thing I don't like so far is that the push-button needs to be pressed for a second or so, before it activates the speaker box. If the button is released too quickly, the speaker box might not activate. I think it would be better for the push button to activate the tune immediately, rather than depend on how the person presses the button.

The push button uses an A23S mercury cell, which should last a long time. The speaker box uses three AA batteries. To save batteries, the speaker box can also be powered from an active USB port. For example, I have a USB hub that stays active all the time. Or, the speaker box could be powered using any number of USB power supply devices that are readily available.

The wireless RF signal is coded, to eliminate false alarms from neighboring RF devices. There are miniature coding switches inside the push button, and inside the battery compartment of the speaker box. They need to be set to match each other. This is similar to some garage door openers.
