1.0 out of 5 stars Super high pitched annoying ring, August 10, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mirrycle Incredibell Original Bicycle Bell (Sports)
I think this will be the first time I ever returned something to Amazon. This is a fine bell and loud, like the other reviewers said.
However, I never even attached it to my bike. After ringing it, I discovered that it has a very high pitched ring. I wear digital hearing aids and the pitch of this ring was enough to make them squeak! My hearing aids are programmed to adjust automatically and I've never had a problem like this with them, but something about the tone of this bell makes them unable to respond appropriately and I get this whistling aftereffect. From a few feet away it might not bother me (ie on someone else's bike) but I don't think I could stand using this on my own bike.
But, it would probably be fine for most users with normal hearing.

Matthew says:
With all due respect, it seems a bit unfair to smear the star-rating of this item merely because it affects your hearing aids (which most customers probably won't have). Reviews are intended to be based on the functionality and quality of an item. The function of a bicycle bell is to last a long time and warn pedestrians that you are coming.

People work hard to design, manufacture and bring to market a product and you give it one star because of extenuating circumstances like this. I think it may be worth pointing out, but I think you should revise your rating.
