Technical Specification & Detail
Good value but needs better speaker
Compared to the others on the market this is very good value. However the cheap speaker is somewhat "tinny" in sound and could be replaced with one with some more bass. Some sounds are generic; for instance the guard's whistle could do with a more realistic sound recording.
