I just got this today but wanted to get the word out that this unit(at least the one I received) is C-weighted, not A-weighted like the description currently states. The "weighting" has to do with the frequency response and the different versions are intended to match the human response to noises under different circumstances. A-weighting is more common and typically used for noise ordinances and OSHA requirements. There's a general consensus that A-weighting is not appropriate for anything over quiet room levels, but from what I've read, A-weighting is used as the standard for many situations (for better or worse).

That said, C-weighting is probably better for my purposes anyway. Often you have to get a more expensive unit that has both A and C to get C-weighted response.

As for the unit, for the price, it feels solid and looks like it could handle a drop or two. It has an automatic back-light, min-max functionality and a 1/4-20 threaded boss for mounting to a tripod etc. The unit is basic, but I'm happy with it. I don't have reference equipment to test the accuracy, but the values seem to match what I would expect for different environments.

I have been taking speech theraphy. My therapist uses one of these to measure my voice output volume. She suggested I get one to practice with so I'll know when I'm getting the proper output volume. The Pyle was reasonably priced and works well.

The item I received is not "A" weighted. The packaging even says "C" on the back. If you are looking to pick up noise from your noisy neighbors, this product is not for you. "C" weighted is more ideal for musicians or music clubs checking their noise levels. It randomly skips around numbers below 60 unless it's really really loud. The only plus is that the screen lights up so you can see the numbers if you are in a dark place. I am returning this item. Fix your information Amazon.

I purchased this sound level to measure and setup my new 5.1 home theater setup. My receiver has an auto calibration utility, but I wanted to validate the sound levels and as to tweak the settings as needed.
The measurements were in line with the receiver's calibration utility, and allowed me to further adjust the settings as I wanted.
It performed as expected and for the price it is well worth it.

We purchased this on the advice of a speech therapist who told us to get a meter in order to gauge voice volume. It just doesn't seem to be doing the job for us. Readings fluctuate all over the place, even when there is no ambient noise present.

Also, the first unit we bought was defective. After a little while the background light went out, so I tried to replace the battery. There was a spark and smoke. The company replaced the unit because it was a relatively new purchase.

I recently hired an acoustical consultant registered with NCAC. He came to take readings within our space to determine acoustic levels. When I showed him this device he wanted to test it's accuracy. It came within a 1 or so decibels of his device which is calibrated and registered yearly. So this is an accurate device. I do wish it came with some sort of stand, but for the price this is a good deal.

You will be impressed with how well this device operates. Pyle has made a product that is not only fun to operate, but to play with as well. And for stereo aficionados, it is a tool that meets a requirement most nobly.
