Rated 4 out of 5 by from MK 115 SOUND LEVEL METER Excellent product. The conponets are very close together and hard to solder. This kit is not recommended for beginners. When there is a sound detected all of the LEDs lights up not a meter. The battery is hard to get out recommend using a screwdriver to get out
