    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.

    Works as intended, having to reset it is a little disappointing but overall it's a good replacement for the stock buzzer in my AE86.

    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.
