      Totally realistic if you set it up right

          I noticed the complaint that this crackle box is too loud. Yes if it's in a small room, it's kinda loud, but all I had to do was lay it down, speaker side down, and the volume is perfect. And because it's muffled, it makes the crackling sound even more realistic. I leave it on for weeks at a time, night and day, before I have to change the battery. I love this silly little gadget, and so do my guests.

                I really enjoyed the new electric logs for our fireplace, but missed the sound. This item adds alot to the ambience. I would recommend this item, especially for the price.

                Best Uses

                  As many others have noted, this crackler is LOUD even on low volume, and yes, the pops do sound exactly like someone going to town on a nice big sheet of that large-cell bubble-wrap. [Truth: I believe that is exactly what it is, not a recording of an actual fire.] When I first turned it on, my startled cats began looking around as if wondering where the gunfire was coming from, and was it aimed at them?!! It was hilarious.

                  Real fires are not nearly this noisy, even pine log ones. What I did was took a paper towel and folded it into a square small enough to cover the whole speaker, then I scotch-taped it in place. I then placed the crackler INSIDE the body of my electric fireplace, FACE DOWN on the speaker - and its now muted to a much less intrusive level. I want gentle ambience, not popping bubble wrap. Good grief.

                  I'd prefer something a little more realistic, with fewer pops but this is the only crackler I can find that's under $99. Someone needs to step up to the plate and make us a better one, in the $50 range, I would buy it ASAP. I may try replacing the folded paper towel with some felt or something, that's for later though. I will be keeping this even though its hardly the best ever.

                      Unfortunately item did not sound as realistic as fire place "sounds". Tried suggestions of other postings but still not happy.

                            I bought this for my electric fireplace and am returning it. The sound loop is so short and not very realistic. The crackling is good but then there are two loud pops that sound like someone banging a hammer or popping bubble wrap. And this repeats every 30 seconds. I would have probably kept it if it was not for this loud banging. It doesn't matter what level you have the volume at, it still sounds like hammering. Perhaps if they had made the recording loop a little longer it would not have been so noticeable but like I said before....BANG, BANG!

                                  I am terribly disappointed with this product. It sounds more like someone popping bubble wrap instead of a crackling fire. Suit yourself but I recommend you not waste your money.

                                    Even on low setting, the sound was still too loud and unnerving, like someone was slamming cabinets. I actually love the sound of fire, and it would have been fine if they didn't add the loud blam blam following the fire flow... please listen to the sample before purchasing and imagine it after about 5 minutes time. Not good for relaxing, especially if your fireplace is in the bedroom.
