      Overall I am very happy with this metronome! The only dislike I have so far is the headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm and I wish it was a 1/4". An adapter is no problem to find online but it is one more thing to misplace or forget to bring to a show or service. Some have had issues with the volume but I think if you play with quality headphones then this will not be a problem. During services the volume is not an issue because I run it through a preamp and through our Aviom's so all the musicians can hear the click. I play with Bose over the ear noise canceling headphones. At home, I normally plug into a mixer only so I can mix a track in as well but I have played MANY times with just plugging in headphones to the output and it has been PLENTY loud enough for me.
      For the money, the features are great. 8 slot memory is good for me since I normally play 5 or 6 track set lists. Backlight is easy to access. I wish the volume was buttons rather then a side dial but normally I have an Aviom so its not a big issue but something to consider.
      I have not owned the product for a long time so I can't say if it holds up or not but the buttons don't feel cheap, nor does the construction.

      It's a pretty good metronome; however, it's not very loud. I'm a drummer in a rockband and this metronome isn't nearly loud enough for me. The features and stuff on it are cool though.

      I haven't really put much time into using this beyond keeping simple time. I am still trying to figure this thing out. It is very versatile once you figure it out I'm sure, but I have not put in the time yet.

        Works great and is very easy to use. No cons. Haven't thrown on headphones yet but I imagine it's like every other metronome through headphones.

            Great metronome. I've used others but really like the functionality and ease of use of this one. Price is right too. No negatives that I can see so far. Have used it for two weeks and am very happy.

            I particular like the tones of the accent beats and the ability to split.
            Everything I need plus.
            It appears to be well made but I haven't had it long enough to attest to the endurance.
            A bit pricey but I obviously overcame that to make the purchase and am not displeased.

            Comments about Boss DB-60 Dr. Beat Metronome:

            I couldn't have asked for something better. The price is a little high, but I think it's good that I dropped down a little extra cash for this thing. The backlight feature alone is worth the money. The volume is loud enough even while I play my drumset. I use the Vic Firth SIH1 headphones though, so I can't say how good it is otherwise. But all in all, great product.
