What to look for when buying a voice recorder
Not sure what kind of voice recorder or spy voice recorder you are looking for? Don't worry, our specialists are happy to help you with personal advice.
- Excellent recording quality is crucial
When choosing a voice recorder, the recording quality plays an important role. When conversations are not well understood afterwards, it is difficult to retrieve details. You will therefore only find the best models of voice recorders in our range. Each and every one of them has an excellent recording quality.
- Brands of voice recorders
Well-known brands of voice recorders are those of Philips and Olympus. Voice recorders from these well-known brands usually take the form of a traditional memo recorder and are therefore less suitable for unobtrusive recording of conversations. The Sitcon voice recorders, on the other hand, are designed in such a way that they have an unobtrusive appearance and are therefore extremely suitable for secretly recording conversations.
- Voice recorders with extensive options
In our range of voice memo recorders you will find various devices with numerous options. Voice recorders with sound detection and the option of automatic recording ensure that you always make sound recordings at the right time. We also have mic recorders with different lengths of recording time in our range. Depending on the purpose for which the recorder is purchased, you will need more or less time.
- Voice recorders with long recording on battery
Most spy recorders in our range have a very long battery life. For example, with some spy recorders it is possible to make a continuous recording of 135 hours, but also to stand by more than 4000 hours if there is no sound. Especially when transferring recordings is sometimes difficult in terms of time, it is wise to choose a voice recorder with a long recording time. This is the case, for example, if you are on the road a lot. However, it is important to take into account the maximum battery life of the recorder. Most recorders can stand by for 25 to 225 days and record up to 70 hours on battery power alone. It is often the case that voice recorders with a small or thin design, such as mini voice recorders, often have a limited battery life.
Reasons to use a voice recorder
In some situations it is better not to carry a visible recorder. In this case, choose an inconspicuous device. In our range you will find spy voice recorders that are incorporated in objects that you use every day, so that they are as inconspicuous as possible. From a real working calculator to a recorder in an ordinary pen: no one recognizes these objects as sound recording equipment. A voice recorder is much more useful than many people think. Nowadays everyone owns a phone with a camera. This gives you the impression that recording only sound is old-fashioned and no longer has a function. That is absolutely not true. Because a voice recorder is much easier to use than a smartphone. In addition, it is less intrusive and you can record many more hours in a row without running out of battery. More importantly, the quality of the recordings is a lot higher.
- Using a voice recorder during an interview
In some conversations, every word is important. When you interview someone you try to find out as much as possible. Remembering everything is not always easy. Constantly taking notes is distracting and puts you at risk of missing notes and details. Moreover, you have less personal contact with your conversation partner and that is at the expense of the quality of the interview. You simply place a voice recorder between you. You don't have to worry about it while every word is recorded crystal clear.
- A recording of important lectures
Students increasingly opt for a voice recorder. Because research shows that a lot of information is quickly forgotten. Especially when it is a long lecture on a complicated subject. A voice recorder offers a solution. If you wish, you can listen back to the entire lecture. But you can just as easily fast-forward to important moments or details that you forgot.
- Improve your own ability to give presentations
Reflecting on your own performance is still one of the best ways to learn. Giving speeches and presentations is stressful for many people. They are unsure of their own way of speaking. It's no secret that most people don't like to listen to their own recorded voice. Only if you do this more often you get used to it. To get better it is necessary to listen to yourself. For example, filter stop words that you use too often from your way of speaking. Teach yourself to speak more energetically and clearly and speak more fluently and with more confidence. A voice recorder is of course the ideal device to record your own voice and listen to it later.
- A voice recorder supports you in learning a foreign language
Learning a new language is a challenge for everyone. That is why you seize all the resources. A voice recorder allows you to closely monitor your own progress. Speak in a foreign language and then listen back to how it sounds. This allows you to compare your pronunciation with someone for whom it is the mother tongue. It's also much easier to ask someone else for feedback.
How to record calls via mobile or landline?
You may need to record telephone conversations, for example to serve as evidence later. Especially for these situations we have voice recorders that are designed for recording conversations via the landline or mobile phone. This is regardless of the type of phone or smartphone. The microphone sensitivity varies between 1 and 15 meters. In addition to these voice recorders, our range also includes telephone recorders with software. These are suitable for recording calls from landlines, IP telephones and other systems. You connect these telephone recorders to a computer so that you can record both incoming and outgoing telephone calls at all times.
Is the use of voice recorders legal?
Many of our customers ask whether it is legal to record conversations and whether it can be used in a potential lawsuit. To answer this question, it must first be pointed out that many people confuse eavesdropping and recording conversations, causing confusion.
- Eavesdropping on conversations
Eavesdropping means that a room or conversation is monitored without your presence. This is possible, for example, because you have placed a memo recorder in a room and listen to it later, or you have placed a transmitter in the room and immediately hear what is being said from a distance. Eavesdropping is not legal with some exceptions.
- Recording conversations
Recording conversations in which you are a participant is legal and can therefore also be used in a possible lawsuit. Also, you do not have to inform your interlocutor in advance that you are recording the conversation, despite the fact that this is often stated. The way in which you can determine whether you can legally record a conversation is fairly simple. It depends on whether you are a participant in the conversation. So you can also record it when you have a telephone conversation with someone.
