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, this device has an onboard 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 12-16 hour battery to nearly 120 hours, or about five days! Listen to your recorded files directly from the device with the built-in speaker, the included headphones, 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 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. Still, they do not allow fast-forwarding of a particular file easily or skip to the next file. Many people ask 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; the onboard display can control just about everything on the unit. Files can be individually checked, listened to, fast-forwarded, rewound, and even deleted using the joystick control and the LCD.
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 into the 3.5mm audio jack connection, switch over to the external mic mode, and you're golden! Need to increase your recording detection range? A program available to Windows computers allows you to adjust the microphone sensitivity or even increase or decrease the noise level that would trigger a recording. 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 repeatedly or increase or decrease the playback speed so you can try to hear a little more.
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 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 12-16 hour battery, or you can even leave it plugged in for power while recording. You can even use the included battery pack to record up to 120 hours! The fact you have the ability to alter the level at which VOS (voice-operated system) recordings are triggered is advantageous.
No special software is needed to review recordings; plug it into your Windows or Mac computer to listen to, save and delete your recordings, or do all that straight from the unit itself! The possibilities are endless, and it just keeps getting easier and easier to attain that extra peace of mind.
This professional micro stick recorder is great for recording conversations, school lectures, business meetings, verbal abuse at home, work, or school. You can even use it to record your child custody case interactions with your ex or divorce lawyers. This product can be used to record verbal interactions with law enforcement and is perfect for on-the-go recording or as a dictation device!

Q: After being 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 to 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: Check out our Quick Start Guide for help in this process.
Q: How long does the battery last?
A: The initial battery lasts for 12-16 hours, but it comes with a battery pack that can push it to 120 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 anymore. 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.

I find it tedious. You can not set it to record by voice activate unless it's hooked up to your PC. Therefore, if it's already set to record continuously, you can't use it otherwise until you get home...hook it up, wait for the program to launch, & then set it up. Also, the same applies to saving a recording. Deleting a recording using the device only is balky. I also do not find the recording quality very good, even on the high setting. For the amount of money I paid, I really thought it would be better.
Thanks for the review! We're sorry the device isn't working as expected, but you are able to switch the device from continuous to voice-activated mode right from the device. All you need to do is to push in on the joystick for a few seconds until it reads "VOS ON," and then repeat the same process to turn "VOS OFF." Be sure to give us a call at 1.800.292.7748 between the hours of 10 am to 6 pm CST Monday through Saturday if you have any questions or need help with the unit.
The recorder works very well for it's size. The instructions can be hard to follow.
Fast shipping. Small and compact, so far so good.
First I’ll start by saying I spent countless hrs searching for a device that would work but more importantly one that extremely easy to use, I’m not by any means a tech person so after waisting 3 days I actually read a review on a different website that said u get what you pay for and and $120 isn’t a lot to spend for peace of mind and In my opinion is well worth every penny I called them to ask some questions and talked to a guy named Austin he was so helpful and answered all my questions I explained to him how Untechnical I was and I was nervous I was going to buy something and not be able to get it to work, he asked me if I wanted him to set everything up for me b4 he sent it out so all I’d have to do is set it n forget it, I love that u can listen to all the recordings with or without a computer Austin actually sent me a very detailed text explaining step by step how to set up or adjust any settings on the computer, honestly I figured it out n when u listen to it on the computer it’s so much louder and u can do things like take out back ground noise, I was skeptical on how well the microphone was going to work in the car considering she always talked either on speakerphone with the radio playing or over the speakers on Bluetooth it has recorded by ways with perfect clarity after trying different places to hide but still be able to hear without being seen I put it in the door behind the driver seat, I recommend experimenting with where to place it, also talking volumes with background noises etc.. testing it out not just relying on the microphone. I’m very pleased with this unit, how long the battery lasts, how well u can hear everything, how easy it is to use both with or without the computer and also thankful for how helpful Austin was in setting everything b4 I even got it, it showed up in 2 days in a discrete package. It’s doing it’s job and giving me peace of mind and u do get what u pay for, I highly recommend both this unit as well as this company , and if ur not tech savvy, ask for Austin.
Thanks for the amazing feedback! Austin will be glad to hear he has helped!
I got this to record lectures while in class. I love it, makes school that much easier!
