Inexpensive high quality masterkeyboard
29.05.2015
I received the keyboard March 12th. However, one key was not working properly, as it had no touch sensitivity. Not much I could do about it, Thomann handled the situation and sent me a return ticket.

On April 8th i receive the replacement product, which was to my bad luck broken as well. This time one key was not giving any signal/sound at all. A hole was noticed on the transportation box.

April 28th I receive the second replacement product. This one was faultless.

The product itself is made from an aluminum housing together with (what feels like) plastic edges. Very pleased. The keys are not really synth-action. Somewhere between synth and semi-weighted. Also very pleased. The fader (which also has a numerical LED) and knob is asignable to whichever CC of choosing. Pitch and modwheel feels good, octave buttons are responsive and indicate which octave you are playing in.

The big astreix for me would be whether the build quality or packaging was the reason for this product being DOA 2 times. Therefor 1 stars off in quality (otherwise, the quality of this keyboard is very good for such a low price).

If you need more knobs or a more detailed screen, do look elsewhere. Otherwise I would gladly recommend this one for anyone who simply needs to play / record.

Perfect keyboard if you don't need any fancy features
15.03.2017
For months I was researching various MIDI keyboards with 49 keys, which I could use just to play piano plugins from my iPad. I didn't need any fancy features like an array of knobs, sliders and pad, but rather a solid keyboard with full size keys that is iOS compatible. The EasyKey 49 was exactly what I was looking for.

It has a solid aluminum housing, the side panel are plastic that look and feel good. I am very happy with the keys, they feel great, though they are not fully weighted but that was not something that I was looking for anyway.

I particularly like the sheet holder which nicely fits my iPad in there too. The MIDI out connection is also a big plus for me, just in case if I get a desktop synth which I could then control with the EasyKey.

The keyboard comes with a CD that includes some software. I don't have a computer in my household that has a CD drive and I do not have an external CD drive either, so I wasn't able to test the contents. It's not really important for me, so no biggie. However, maybe Thomann could explore an option to offer a download version of the software. I might not be the only customer without a CD drive. Or maybe they could just offer a download link and skip the whole CD thing (maybe saving even some costs).

In case you wonder why I'm addressing Thomann above, it's because the Swissonic brand is their house brand, and I have to say that it is an excellent product on par with all my experiences with Thomann so far.

All in all, if you are looking for a simple but a solid keyboard to play your virtual synths or pianos, without the need to tweak any parameters, then I can only highly recommend the Easykey 49.

Swissonic EasyKey 49 - I am a beginner and it works great for me!
New learner, 07.04.2021
Given I am a new-comer in the world of music and instruments I was looking for an entry-level device that could support my first steps and help me evolve.
Swissonic EasyKey has the following characteristics that I value:
-- Smooth (plug&play) integration with GarageBand in mac
-- Easy to use interface with all the required functionality for a beginner (not many confusing buttons but some required and operational ones))
-- Nice touch and responsive
-- solid construction

I would not be in a position to discuss "cons" as my comparison standards are not there yet. However what I do know is that I am happy with what I got and I have put it to immediate use effortlessly.

So if you are a beginner you will enjoy making your first musical steps with this device smoothly.

It's a steal for the price...
George Kexas, 12.10.2017
Over the years i have purchased most of the low price midi keyboards (nektar gx61, novation launchkey 61, maudio keystation, etc) and i can say that in this price range here is nothing competing with the Easykey series as far as the key-action is the main consideration. The keybed is simply more accurate and dynamic than all the competition in the price range. I also has a classic midi port, while most of the keyboards in the price range do not. The pitch bend and the modulation wheel have a good feel and are sturdy. The usb connection does not feel flimsy and looks more sturdy than the competition. Integration with windows 10 is plug and play. The whole keyboard is rather heavy but the build quality is the same with keyboards 2-3 times the price. So overall, i would say this is a very honest product. The Price/Performance ratio is unbeatable, if your main concern is the keyboard action and built quality.
