"Inexpensive Price--High Value"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I expect that this device will last me for many years, and if it were lost or stolen I would replace it immediately. Although I think it might be overkill for my use, I might even move up to a 31 band EQ.
The 215S gives me all the variability of sound that I need for the kind of recording I do (audio book recording).
I wanted to increase the punch in the lower frequencies of my voice. This device did just that.
Ease of Use
It is very easy to use. I just plugged my mic into the mic preamp, plugged the preamp into the 215S, plugged the 215S into my audio interface then plugged the interface into my computer--voila! Once I played with the EQ a bit and got the sound exactly the way I wanted it, I didn't have to touch it again.
The 215S has displayed any issues since I plugged it in.
I paid an extremely small amount for the 215S, and yet it does the job I need it to do.
Manufacturer Support
I have not had to contact Support.
The Wow Factor
I wanted this device because of its price and its simplicity of design.
