BURAN 500 GSM Bug and Voice Recorder with long battery life, voice activation, and security features.

The Buran 500 is a combination of a GSM Bug and an Audio Recorder, with internal 8 GB memory. It has a black box design and two strong neodymium magnets that are attached to the robust plastic carbon casing of the device, so you can deploy it in a second to metal surfaces. The 3D MEMS low noise microphone is made for use in GSM communication and makes clear - low noise - audio possible. In addition, the Automatic Level Control (ALC) controls the output power to the speaker, prevents loudspeaker overload, and optimizes the dynamic range. 

It can record up to 1800h in sleep mode, up to 75h in continuous mode, and up to 200h in GSM standby mode. 

The Voice activation level can be adjusted with the provided PC software. The provided USB cable is essential for the functioning of the device as it acts as a security measure. You can not retrieve any files from the recorder without the cable in the accessories of the device. 

This model has an integrated microphone, however, can be equipped with an external microphone as well. 
The Buran 1200 is also available - it is a GSM Bug, Audio Recorder, and GPS Locator. You can take a look at the comparison sheet here
