USB Flash Stick Voice Recorder; with Super Long Standby & Time / Date Stamp Recording
Hands down this is currently one of the better spy voice recorders on the market today. This little marvel of a recorder oozes quality and performance to encompass almost everything you need in a professional but 'easy-to-use' audio recording device.
To the naked eye the USB Flash Voice Recorder Time & Date Stick can be displayed and used as a normal eight (8) GB Mass Storage Device for holding your important documents, spread sheets, files, photos etc, however, a subtle recording mechanism enables the powerful and sensitive microphone to capture events as a surveillance voice recorder. The in-built AGC (automatic gain control) adjusts the voice level to accommodate close up recording and distance recording up to 30 feet away without any distortion whatsoever.
In our tests using a Mac computer with a software program called 'Boom 2' installed from the app store, the computer speakers were capable of playing audio files of the USB stick some 30 feet away from where the device had been placed, but was also capable of playing whispers around 15 feet away. This really is supersonic recording quality. The recording mechanism switch is very subtle so that manual or voice activation modes can be started / stopped under natural movement.
TIME AND DATE STAMP RECORDING
A much sought after functionality is to know exactly when each recording was created. This can help to resolve disputes, provide an accurate timeframe of any given situation or just for your own memory recap when playing audio files. Simply press a button to sync your computer time & date with the recorder - its that easy!
Please Note: Syncing the time & date to the USB flash stick can only be done using a Windows computer.
VOICE ACTIVATION & CONTINUOUS RECORDING MODES
At the flick of a switch you can selectively choose your preferred recording mode:
- Voice Activation Recording - place the USB flash stick within the room or vehicle environment to cover a lengthy 25 days / 600 hours standby time
- Continuous Recording - carry the USB flash stick as a body-worn recorder to capture audio 'on the fly' at any time for a total recording time up to 24 hours!
The USB flash stick can withstand close visual examination and for added peace of mind there are No LED's, No noises, No sounds, and No moving parts during recording.
POWERS FROM COMPUTER FOR LONG RECORDING TIMES
If you have the capability to plug the USB flash stick into any computer port the recording time can be substantially increased. For example:
- The huge 24 hours of continuous recording the USB is already capable of from its own internal fully rechargeable lithium battery can be increased to a whopping 288 hours of continuous recording time (until its eight (8) GB capacity has been reached)
- The outstanding 25 days standby time can be increased to several months standby time (or until its eight (8) GB capacity has been reached)
