Style and Ease, Built Into This Cleverly Hidden Audio Recording Pen

The voice activated pen has a sleek and stealthy design, one button operation, and its fully functional allowing you to take notes while you record! It's perfect for secret shoppers, journalists, private investigators, family disputes, child custody cases and the list goes on for what you can use this audio recording device for. Simply put it on VAR mode and it will begin recording any sounds it may hear. With a battery lasting 12 hours you can rest easy knowing you won't miss a thing.

How Does The Voice Activated Sleek Audio Recorder Pen Work?

Our latest slim and sleek covert voice recorder is sure to exceed your expectations. Slide the silver clip down to start recording, and slide the silver clip up to stop recording, it's really that simple! This functional recorder can record up to 12 hours of audio, even while you're writing with it! Yes it REALLY writes!

To operate the voice activation mode connect the remote control included in the package. Press the M button on the remote and hold it down for 3 seconds, on the back of the device you will see a small blue light appear, press the stop key (square) and this light will begin flashing blue. You are now ready to record. To set up this device for continuous recording just repeat the steps above, instead of a flashing blue light you will have a solid blue light. The blue light will not be on when you're recording it only shows up when you're setting up the pen's VAR mode.

If you want to listen to your files simply plug the unit into your PC with the provided cable and drop the files you want to save onto your computer desktop. You can also listen to the recordings directly off of the device with the included remote control and earbud.

To charge this device simply plug the device into your PC or MAC or any USB powered port. It takes 2.5 hours to fully charge.

Spy pen works terrific!

This “spy pen” is better than the record app I have on my Apple Watch or iPhone, as I can actually use the pen, and no one knows I am recording! It’s the best of both worlds! DR - Palm Beach County, FL

Audio Recorder Pen

Really Impressed with the sound quality and range this little devise has. I am a little scared that I’m going to leave it somewhere. You can tell it’s a recording devise at all. I can plug this right into my USB in my car and listen to the recordings very easily.

Good item. Haven’t used it in detail yet though. Will review more later.


Good voice quality, BUT....

The pen is great and has really nice voice quality. However, the instructions is NOT complete. I had to call the company's tech center and I can say that their service was GREAT. They helped me to set it up, and admitted that the instructions should be updated. I could not get the voice activation to work though. I thought it was because of too much noise, so I left it in the car overnight in the garage. next morning, I had 2 VERY long audio files and the end of the last file is where I got in the car the next morning. Is the instructions wrong again? Should the blinking light not be "ON" for the activation mode to work? I've had this now for a week and still battle to get it to work properly. - Spy Shop

Thank you for your review. Yes, while we try very hard to make sure the instructions are correct for every product we sell by writing our own quick start guides, sometimes product boxes will get a guide that we haven't yet fixed for the new models coming in. This is when our great phone support comes in handy! For this product, the light is supposed to be blinking to show it is in voice activated mode, while a solid light will show it is in continuous record mode. I've just reviewed the relevant section of our quick start guide and yes, that was incorrect. It has since been updated! Thanks for pointing this out to us and sorry for the confusion!
