    Super high quality, excellent packaging. Loud and clear sound production and love how many tracks it could play. I have mine set to the “Powered by Mazda” clip. Mines actually velcro’d behind my driver seat and still very clear and JDM vibes. Absolutely love it.

    It takes a genius to create such a good product, and I think we found one! I saw a friend purchased one of these for his vehicle and I just knew I had to get my hands on one. I am so glad I did, and judging by how common it is to be out of stock due to high demand, I’m pretty sure it’s a hit! I purchased mine with the custom greeting and melody and I want to thank David for really going above and beyond to create the perfect melody box. Also, don’t be fooled! The melody box is quite small making placement simple, but the sound is very crisp and clear. You can adjust the volume settings to your liking if you need to. If you’re looking to add the perfect JDM flare, get this.

    My favourite place in the world packed into one sound box that lights up my day whenever I start my drive.
    The sound quality on this device is amazing, I was expecting a lower quality build for what it is but the sound that comes out, beautiful high quality MP3. Packaging is also quality, demonstrates attention to detail and passion put into this product. Everything from greeting you, your car make, to even the sounds of the train, all brings tears to my eyes (there is high variety for the sound that you want). The product was shipped pretty quickly too, which I appreciate. I also regret not doing a custom sound one. I also appreciate the person message that David Nguyen gave me on the card sent with the package.

    This is such a cool novelty item. I am a big fan of cars and Japanese culture so this was a must ! The sound is quite loud (I was afraid it might have been to low but it works great!) I also agree with some reviewers that I wish there was an indicator or better way to tell what sound you were on but other than that awesome purchase !

    I honestly love my melody box! I think its definitely worth it for the novelty and the character it brings to my build. Instillation was simple and I was able to hide the box and wires but still hear the audio clearly. My one gripe is the difficulty of rotating between audio tracks as I have to pause and listen to each track in order to find the audio I'm looking for. Despite the small difficulty of choosing sound tracks, I love the box for its functionality and how it makes me smile when I start my car.

    a really cool addition. it's a novelty item, but it'll put a smile on your face every time you start your car. Mine does work as expected and plays the welcome message conveniently before my stereo kicks in. It's hard to put a price on something like that, but it does seem a little costly for what it does. I guess it largely depends on the build quality and how long it lasts which remains to be seen.

    Hopefully, Ver 2 resolves the 'restart' issue, and maybe us early adopters could get an upgrade at a discount when that comes around.

    Apart from it being super distorted when loud, having to reset it here and there, and the charger port’s small box cut out which didn’t sit the USB cable in flush, the box itself is exactly what you want and expect. Great little piece that gives you a smile every time you start the car.

    Very loud and easy to install.
    Sometimes it cuts the first word and it needs to be reset, but overall great product.
    a little bit pricey for what it does and for having that small issue.

    Pretty cool! Use it as a reverse chime. Wide range of music to choose from. Volume can be adjusted pretty high. Easiest to use for inside your car. Need to be creative for outside mounting.

    Cons: Really not “weather proof” nor made to be used outside of car for backup chime. I’ll see how long it lasts. Required a lot of effort to install. No mounting points, had to use heavy duty 3m tape. Only power source was usb, bought a 5v micro usb converter to a 2 wire 12v to tap into reverse light.

    Had it for about 1 month now. Intermittently stopped working for a few hours once. But back to normal now. I don’t know why.

    Overall I like it. Sorta novelty item that normal people “don’t get” but hey it grabs their attention and they stop walking in parking lots with their heads buried in their phones! Instead they are confused by the Japanese lady talking. A little bit safer for pedestrians who don’t pay attention and possibly someone that I can’t see.
