    Sound Devices CS-3 reviews

    CS-3 Production Case is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good case for Sound Devices 702 recorder I use case to hold SD 702 for mobile field recording of sound FX. Shoulder strap leaves my hands free to hold mic and operate recorder. Very well made with good cable management and extra storage, yet still compact. Fits the 702 perfectly. My only criticism is that the side velcro makes access to the headphone volume knob difficult because the velcro closes on it's own. You have to rip the velcro open to get to that knob, which is very noisy, meaning you don't want to do it while recording. I'm going to make it so the velcro near the HP knob doesn't close, which shouldn't be difficult, but the manufacturer should have thought of that problem. Otherwise I'm very happy with the case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I got this to hold my new SD 302, and couldn't be happier. My wife used it on my last production shoot and, not being a field sound recordist, commented that she would like to have a waistbelt to take some load off the shoulders after standing for hours. Most larger field recording bags do have waste belts, but we quickly rigged up an old webbing belt through the attached loops which worked fine. It's a small bag, so you won't be carrying much weight anyway, but for a long day you might want to think about rigging your own belt. Otherwise, the case is perfect for my needs, and is a perfect companion for the SD 302.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for 302, 702, BUT NOT BOTH! I piggyback this case with the similar Porta Brace bag to use the AD 302 field mixer with the AD 702 recorder in the field. The front pocket of either bag does not have side access for the cabling, so one bag won't accommodate both devices. Two of these or two of the Porta Brace would work just as well. I recommend using a Versa Flex harness with this setup or you will have serious back fatigue by the end of a long recording day.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality justifies the price I tried carrying my 702 recorder in a fanny pack while recording a live music event, but this met with limited success and was awkward. Doing so with the fanny pack, I also inadvertently jostled one of the mic/line selector switches too. This CS-3 production case is well-designed and has eliminated those issues. As the previous reviewer stated, access to the headphone adjustment potentiometer can be difficult, but I rarely use headphones during live recordings, and rely instead on the metering displays which are easily viewed with this case. Construction quality is first rate.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Case, No battery access, Expensive I like this case a lot, but it is a bit too expensive for what it is. It also doesn't come with a way to hook it on a belt or around your waist, so it requires more money for that option. The biggest problem is changing the battery in the field, you have to remove the whole recorder from the case, which also requires unplugging all inputs and outputs. But overall it is decent.
    Date published: 2012-06-09
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from CS-3 My rating might be unfair because it is based on the use with Tascam 701D. Custom made cases for that model are useless as far as I am concerned. They are skin tight, making it awkward to pull the unit out and place it back in if I want to use it interchangeably under the camera or on the shoulder. Flaps of the side openings are like shark mouth. Stiff material lined with heavy duty Velcro scrapes the skin off the fingers when used as frequently as I do. My hope was that getting larger case will make it easier to place the unit in and out and easier to insert/ remove cables to/ from the sides. Unfortunately, that is not what happened. First, this case is much too big, sinking the 701D at the bottom. Second, the side flaps are still too tight and abrasive like the shark mouth. Had no choice but return it and try another case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bag for Sound Devices products Fits perfectly into bag. Many compartments and pockets to store miscellaneous items like memory chips, batteries, etc.
    Date published: 2014-01-04
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good case for the money It's a well-made, well-designed case. Both compartments have cable-access and seem to fit the gear quite well. I'm using it for a MixPre and a Tascam Dr-100 recorder. Was made for SD products, but you can make the Tascam fit with a little tinkering. Good buy.
