I love the metronome Dec 13, 2006
By A Reader
The metronome is extremely easy to use and have enough functionalities for the need of a new piano learner like me. The volume is adjustable, and can be turned off and show LED blinks only. I particularly like the compact design, which also function perfectly as clip for my piano books.

Compact Metronome Jan 26, 2007
By R. Koziar
I purchased this item to help set a cadence in my golf swing, on the recommendation of a friend who had tried the method. This metronome is easy to use, very portable (even has a clip so you can clip it to your belt), and loud enough for you to hear but not so loud as to be a nuisance to others who might be close by. Additionally, it is durable and is a relatively inexpensive item that has been reliable. Using this has helped my golf swing tempo, also.

Great tool for quiet basics Sep 17, 2007
By Robert Koga
I am fairly satisfied with this purchase. While it's extremely compact, fairly inexpensive, and has a decent variety of functions, it's practical use is only when using a drumpad or other simgle milder tones (as oppose to a drum set or instrumental ensemble). The sound easily gets drowned out and does not carry well (I would liken the sound tothe beep of my digital running watch's alarm).
Overall I would say it is a great tool to begin rhythm basics during practice, but a louder metronome should be considered to accompany actual instruments when composing or preparing for a performance.

Great for running, with a small change May 31, 2011
By Kevin G
This Seiko Metronome is actually both light, easy to use, and does exactly what is labelled. However, there is one issue that a lot of people have noticed. I use this to run with (evolution running) and 180 bpm is what is called for. This does that but can be very LOUD. In fact the quietest setting is still very loud. Solution? 1) open up the clip and locate the speaker output. 2) put a 1cm piece of tape on the speaker opening. Voila! Now you have 4 new quieter settings. The only thing I would ask for is a headphone jack, but thats just asking a lot.

Battery change is a hassle Jan 19, 2011
The 3 tiny screws that you have to take off in order to change the battery are hard to reach. I managed to take one off but the second one was scrapped perhaps because the screwdriver did not go in exactly the perpendicular position. The third screw is even harder to reach because the clip is in the way. I will go somewhere to find a better tool, otherwise the device will be useless :-(
