Once again the best price from a listed Rycote dealer, plus the usual fast and efficient service. Also interesting how speedily a minor problem was dealt with - was contacted very quickly by Pinknoise and soon after by Rycote and had replacement part the next day. Full marks all round.

Bought the K-TEK KE 89 boom pole.It's so much easier to use compared to our previous twist lock one. Well worth the extra. The service from Pinknoise was outstanding. Next day delivery meant next day and delivered on time. Well done.

I rang the company to check out different options before I ordered online and spoke to a member of the team who answered all my questions, very friendly and helpful. Placed my order online late afternoon and received emails and texts to keep me informed of the date and time to expect delivery, (less the 48 hours after I had placed my order. Excellent honest and fast service from Pinknoise!"

 David McCormick - UK
"After searching online, I came across Pink Noise. I am always a bit sceptical of ordering something from places I have not heard of, but looking at their website, they seemed fine, so I went and ordered the recorder with an accessory pack. 

It arrived in 2 days in perfect condition. I am quite pleased with my order and if I needed any audio equipment and accessories again, I will definitely check Pink Noise again to see if they have what I am looking for."

 Paul Holt - UK
Great website, great price & super fast delivery - again. Thanks a lot!"

 Dave Williams - UK

"The team at Pinknoise always do a great job on kit supply, That's why I keep coming back."

 Kris wouters - belgium

"I ordered pieces/products that are hard to come with us (Belgium). Although not nationwide, quickly had my order."

 Philip Goddard - UK
"I have to admit, I was suspicious of Pinknoise because of a 'Poor' WOT rating. However, they had the recorder I wanted in stock while others didn't just then, and my careful researches online (including forum posts) pointed strongly to the negative rating as almost certainly maliciously based (that really does happen, disturbingly frequently, and wrecks some businesses!), so I rather nervously contacted them, expecting some slick salesperson to answer my initial queries. In the event, Mike, who I spoke with, was the sort of person I really want to be dealing with - clearly genuinely knowledgeable, with a sense of enthusiasm for the gear they deal in, with no sense of agenda to persuade me to buy anything. 

I ordered the recorder and it arrived the next day if I remember correctly, and it was all fine, and NOT a grey import as another dealer without stock of that model told me it would be! :-) 

I look forward to using Pinknoise in the future for recording or related gear that I may purchase.""


 Ryan forster - UK

"Excellent service. Received my order very fast, unfortunately one of the items had a manufacturing defect. Pinknoise was very prompt and courteous in sending me a replacement right away."

 Aris pavlidis - Greece

"Well, i think that i have to share my experience. I bought mkh-50 mic from pinknoise but unfortunately the mic was faulty. I was very disappointed because I realised the faultiness of the mic on set. I emailed Pinknoise at about 10pm and they answered me at just a few minutes. Without a question, they told me that they are going to send me a new mic right away. What to say! The best!"

 Samuel lehoczki - Hungary 

"As always, Pinknoise was professional and quick. I'm very happy with my new Zoom F8, it's a fantastic device for it's price."


Mike and the team at Pink Noise provided one of the best customer service experiences I've ever received. I had a shoot coming up and needed gear as soon as possible and was a bit stressed about receiving it on time. The team assured me they could do it, offered great advice on which gear was right for my situation, posted it and I receive it the following day. I could not be happier with the service. Very friendly staff who understand sound being sound guys themselves. Communication was fast and their prices are fantastic. If your not sure where to shop look no further than Pink Noise."

 Will Davies - london 

"I struggled for ages to make a decision and with Mike's advise I think I've ended up with a great solution! Thanks a lot"

 George Millar - UK 

"Excellent, friendly, knowledgeable service, which saved me money and has got my Sound Devices 722 happily powered up again. Will definitely be coming back again for advice and products in the future."



"I picked up the K-Tek bag for my Tascam DR70d and the accessory pack too. The service from Pinknoise was exemplary, I'll definitely use them again given that they appear to have the best stock in the UK for decent audio capture equipment. 

The K-Tek bag is a lot smaller than expected, however, this is probably a positive as I need to be light on my feet! This'll ensure that I only ever carry what I absolutely need! 

The accessory pack is functional, the wind shield seems to work ok, I had it out in a gale force wind and although there was wind interference it would've been completely ruined without it."

 ARIS Anastassopoulos - Newcastle Upon tyne 

"Brilliant and fast service, didn't mind going the extra mile. Top service. Pink Noise Rocks!!"

I have purchased some items from Pink Noise recently and I have to say the service was really good. They didn't have one item in stock and they reacted super quick to get some in and within the week my shipment was on the way... I can't expect more then that... Thank you. "

" Love shopping with pinknoise. Greatest advice ever, and reliable products. Only criticism of the Tascam DR70D is that you can't change your camera battery without removing it, which is pretty frustrating, plus it takes a long time to turn on, liked the speed with which the juiced link box became functional. just in case you want to feed back to them! Thanks again for all the help, best wishes, Bex "
