Mini Micro Stick Voice Activated Recorder
WITH EASY OPERATION AND SMALL SIZE, EXPECT TO USE IT FOR JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING!Normally, a device such as our tiny micro stick recorder having so many features becomes very complicated to use. Nothing could be further from the truth however for this device has an on-board interface that is easy to navigate and easy to read. You can see exactly what you're doing with each click of the button. You even have an option to use an extended battery, bringing the initial seven hour battery up to three days! Listen to your recorded files directly from the device or plug it into any Windows or Mac PC for off-site storage.
ANYWHERE YOU GO, YOU CAN SEAMLESSLY REVIEW WHAT'S HAPPENED ON THE MINI STICK VOICE ACTIVATED RECORDERWith our new mini recorder, you're able to do things that most of our other devices simply cannot do or have difficulty doing. One of the most asked-for features of recorders has been the ability to listen directly off the device, which many of our products do, but they do not allow for fast-forwarding of a particular file very easily or they simply just skip to the next file. As well, many people ask for the ability to clear the memory off their device from the unit itself, and many devices have this but it can be a very confusing process. Confusion is a thing of the past as everything on the unit can be controlled by the on-board display. Files can be individually checked, listened to, fast-forwarded, rewound and even deleted, all right from the unit itself.
Special features abound with this recording device. Have an external microphone that gets a higher decibel rating, or one that allows you to record your phone calls? Plug it right in and switch over to the external mic mode and you're golden! Need to switch your recording detection distance on the fly? Even while you're recording, you can change the mode to have the recorder focus on sounds that are closer to you or to broaden the audio detection range for environments such as restaurants or lecture halls. Were you listening to a file, but couldn't quite make out what was being said? Use the loop-back feature that lets you listen to a file over and over again so you can try to hear a little more or just download it to any computer.
EFFORTLESS USE AND VERSATILITY MAKES THE MINI MICRO VOICE RECORDER A NEW STANDARD
A recorder as simple to use as our new micro stick has been long sought-after. All the capabilities are there at the touch of a button, ready to change settings and recording modes on the fly and it is really super intuitive.
A quick two hour recharge gets you back up and running after using the built in seven hour battery, or you can even leave it plugged in for power while recording. You can even use the included battery pack to record for 72 hours! The fact that this device can be set for sounds within a certain distance is incredible, and coupled with the “auto level control” that suppresses loud sounds and amplifies weak sounds means this device just blows other recorders out of the water.
No special software is needed for this device; simply plug it into your Windows or Mac computer to review, save and delete your recordings, or do all that straight from the unit itself! Possibilities are endless, and it just keeps getting easier and easier to attain that extra peace of mind.

FAQQ: After it's been plugged into the computer, which software should I use to play the audio?
A: We recommend VLC Media Player, a free download off the internet.
Q: Does this unit have voice activation? Does it increase the battery life?
A: Yes, you can set it record only when it hears a sound, however it does not go into a low power state to conserve battery.
Q: Can recordings be date/time stamped?
A: No, this device cannot time stamp the files.
Q: How long does the battery last?
A: The initial battery lasts for 7 hours, but it comes with a battery pack that can push it to 72 hours!
Q: Will the files play on a Mac? I don't have a Windows PC.
A: Yes, it can work on either one. We recommend using VLC Media Player to listen to the files.
Q: I deleted all the files using my Mac computer, but now it won't record any more. What happened?
A: Most likely what happened is that you didn't complete the last step: emptying your Trash Folder. Once you plug the device in and go to move the files to the trash, you also need to navigate to your Trash Folder and empty it before you unplug it from the Mac, otherwise those files are still actually there, just hidden.

How to Playback and Save Your Recordings on a PC
I’ve had this product now for about 3 weeks. Though I have it set for voice activate, I picks up other sounds as well. I did set it to filter background noises but I guess it’s real sensitive. Perhaps I need to change the settings. I was trying to hear the voice on the other end of a phone call or video chat. Overall it’s not bad. Power doesn’t last past 1 day (12 hrs) even though it’s only supposed to record only when there’s a voice. So it ends up recording the hums and that’s takes up life.
Thanks for the review! When the device is in voice activation it will pick up any noise within 20-40ft depending on how loud the noises are. So if a TV or radio is on in the same room it will pick that up and record. The device has a omni directional microphone which is a microphone that picks up sound with equal gain from all sides or directions of the microphone. This device does not have a low power standby mode like other devices we offer so whether it is in continuous or voice activation the life of the battery will either last for 7 hours off the internal rechargeable battery or up to 72 Hours with the extended battery pack depending on the type of AAA batteries used.
I can't say I'm thrilled. I thought the set up and usage of the voice activation was going to be easy. Nope. Ihave to make tome to call the help desk

This is my third purchase of this item. It has always performed as advertised. Good quality audio (usually buried under a t-**** and jacket).
Small & power packed with features. Love the adjustable audio sensitivity control. Audio pick up is amazing. I personally use this for daily ideas and recording convos with friends, family and co workers.
Hello, thank you for asking, I feel like the microphone on the unit is fuzzy. Disapointed.
We're sorry to hear you're disappointed with the quality of the product's recordings. You can check the settings for the unit, such as if you are recording with a higher or a lower quality ( we suggest using XHQ, the highest quality ), or to adjust the "auto level control" to pick up sounds in a wider area. You may also give us a call at 1-800-292-7748 and we'll be happy to help you out over the phone!
