  1. A competitive alternative to well-known brands such as Svantek and Bruel Kjaer, whilst offering value for money.

    5.0 out of 5
    We are Dynamic Response, Noise and Vibration Consultants which operate throughout the UK.

    After our existing meter went faulty, we purchased the dBAir Sound Meter from Castle. We also opted for the Weatherproof Case and 8 Day Battery (NK118) so that we could continue to carry out environmental noise surveys and unattended noise monitoring for our clients.

    Choosing to purchase from Castle due to our continued working relationship, we saw the dBAir Sound Meter as a competitive alternative to other well-known brands such as Svantek and Bruel Kjaer, whilst offering value for money. One possible improvement would be a removable SD card over the internal memory, but that's just a small preference.

    The purchasing process was pain free and easy, with after sales support overcoming any problems to present.

    We are looking forwards to recommending Castle's products and services in the future wherever possible.
