A seemingly ordinary ballpoint writing pen is actually a professional 30 days standby digital voice recorder in disguise. Place the pen in your pocket or leave it in a room or vehicle to capture covert audio recordings up to 19 hours continuously or upon voice detection. Each audio file can be labelled with a time and date for evidence and now with three brand new features to enhance sound quality. The pen is just stunning and a firm favourite that you too will be proud to own.
Boasting the world's longest standby time of 30 days, this real ballpoint pen voice recorder offers everything you need for gathering discreet audio recording from inside a room, a vehicle, or conversations of a meeting, an interview, or a dispute within the home or workplace. In fact, because the Deluxe Pen Voice Recorder has a completely normal appearance, it will pass any visual inspection for complete peace of mind.
The pen's physical design means there are no external buttons, no sliding clips, no moving parts, no markings and no recording indicator. You can confidently leave the pen in full view without drawing any attention.
It should be noted that the pen has a slightly thicker body measuring 14.5 mm circumference, however, because writing pens are manufactured in all shapes and sizes these days, its' a fair assessment to say that the amazing features of the pen far outweigh this consideration.
The Deluxe Pen now comes with an easy-to-use software which gives you the option to label each audio recording when the file was created. Press a button on the software to sync a computer's time and date with the pen recorder - it's that easy!
The software also allows you to adjust the audio quality between HQ (high quality) and XHQ (extra high quality). The lower setting (HQ) will draw less power when recording and is best suited to smaller, confined areas like a vehicle. The higher XHQ setting is best used when recording in larger rooms.
Use the software to adjust the microphone sensitivity. For example: by lowering the sensitivity of the microphone reduces the recording of unnecessary sounds like a cough, passing traffic outside or a door creaking. By increasing the sensitivity of the microphone heightens the pen's detection capability.
2x recording modes:
When the pen is connected to a computer's USB port, it can record continuously for 144 hours (that's a huge 6 days) until its storage memory is full. Or, put the pen into voice activation mode to extend its 30 day standby time to unlimited standby time!
The pen records each audio file in MP3 format @ 128 KBPS for a superior and clearer sound than ever before. Furthermore, the in-built ALC function automatically balances sound for perfect audio levels.
We understand that gathering audio evidence will sometimes need to pass the most observant person/s. For this reason the pen offers a rather unique 'twist' mechanism so recordings can commence and stop under completely natural body movement.
The pen is designed to connect to a Windows or Mac computer. You can play audio files and recharge the pen on a computer, however, if you wish to use the supplied software to set the time and date and adjust the microphone settings these actions can only be done using a Windows computer.
The pen can also be used as a normal 8 GB Mass Storage Device for holding spreadsheets for example: Excel, Word, Powerpoint or photos and other documents etc.
Without doubt, this Deluxe Pen Voice Recorder is an excellent investment for all your audio recording needs with the highest quality assured.
ARE THERE ANY RECORDING INDICATORS OR LED's THAT MAY AROUSE SUSPICION?
No. There are no buttons, no sliding clips and no switches. In fact, there is absolutely nothing out of the ordinary, and the pen can be freely shown. It should be noted that the pen does have a slightly thicker diameter than our other pen recorders due to the amazing recording capabilities.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT RECORDING MODES OF THE PEN?
There are 2x recording modes you can quickly select depending on your preference. For example: If you are about to go into an important meeting or a face to face conversation or perhaps a conference chat around a table, then standard / continuous recording mode would be used. If for example; you were to absent from the room or wanted to catch speech in a car and did not know when such conversations would take place, then you would select super voice activation recording mode.
DO I NEED TO USE THE SUPPLIED SOFTWARE FOR WINDOWS COMPUTERS?
No. It is not a requirement to use the software; however, if you do use a Windows computer, you can make tweaks to the recording capability of the pen.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR START / STOP RECORDING?
The design of the pen uses a clever 'twist' recording mechanism that is so subtle it's impossible to notice by other people.
HOW DO I SELECT THE RECORDING MODE?
Because everything is hidden away, you will need to unscrew the pen centre to reveal the charging USB (direct USB connection without messy cables) and the recording mode switch. Slide the switch to your chosen recording mode and screw the pen halves back together. It's that easy!
HOW LONG WILL THE PEN RECORD FOR?
A fully charged battery will provide sufficient power to record continuously for 19 hours or in super voice-activation mode the pen will remain powered for up to 30 days waiting to record audio. This is a substantial length of standby time. Please bear in mind that standby time is reduced as recording time takes place.
WHAT STORAGE CAPACITY HAS THE PEN?
The pen uses an internal storage capacity of 8 GB, which is enough to hold 144 hours of recordable audio. Besides, you can also drop documents and other private material to the pens storage memory.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO POWER THE PEN THROUGH A COMPUTER?
Yes. When you connect the pen to your computer and then activate recording, the pen obtains its power through the computer for the full duration of its 8 GB storage capacity. This means a total recording time (continuous or voice-activated) of 288 hours in HQ and 144 hours in XHQ.
WHAT RECORDING FORMAT ARE THE AUDIO FILES CREATED IN?
Each recorded audio file is stored in MP3 format @ 128 KBPS. MP3 is encoded and suitable for playback on all computers.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO ADD A TIME AND DATE STAMP TO EACH AUDIO FILE FOR PROVIDING EVIDENCE?
Yes. We supply a software which is compatible with Windows computers and allows you to easily set a time and date when each file is created. This is a good feature to use if you must know what the specific time or day something happened.
