Hi there,

What can I say about the Wildlife Acoustics Echo Meter Touch 2?

As featured on BBC Springwatch, BBC Autumnwatch, BBC Winterwatch, BBC Open Country on Radio 4 with Steve Backshall and #WildMorningswithChris Packham & Megan McCubbin.

This is simply the easiest and most affordable way to listen to bat calls while also seeing their calls on the real-time sonogram display. You can record the calls and the auto-ID system will try to identify them for you.

Simply plug into a compatible Apple or Android phone or tablet and hear and see the calls of the bats around you.

For a hand-held unit with pretty much everything you could want, the Echo Meter Touch 2 is hard to beat and excellent value for money. Even if you add the price of an iPad Mini or Android tablet, the total price is probably less than you think (see below).

There are two options: the Echo Meter Touch 2 for hobbyists and the new and improved Echo Meter Touch 2 PRO for professional ecologists and serious bat workers.

If you already have a compatible Apple or Android device, it's a no-brainer, but even if you haven't it's well worth considering - compatibility list below.

Both Apple and Android versions are now available and adaptors, cables, accessories and bundles are further down the (extremely long) page.

I want you to be 100% happy with your purchase so call me on 0333 9000 927 for advice, or drop me an email.

Scroll down the (very long) page for all the information you need to make your decision - if you still need help, just give me a call for a chat.

Order now and I'll give £5 to Bat Conservation Trust for each one you order.

Warm Regards,

Martin.

Your Echo Meter Touch 2 comes with my 60 day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and my exclusive 2 year warranty. Price includes UK delivery and VAT
(non-UK delivery will be charged at cost after purchase and if you have an EU VAT number or are outside the EU, we can supply without VAT)

The world's most advanced bat detector just got a whole lot better

The Echo Meter Touch 2 is available in two models:

The Echo Meter Touch 2 for hobbyists at only £200

The original Echo Meter Touch was designed for bat professionals, but it was quickly realized that bat hobbyists were interested too – but not with the professional price tag. Echo Meter Touch 2 changes that by offering many of the features previously available only to professionals – at less than half the price.

Now, every bat enthusiast can use their iPhone/iPad/iPod or Android device to discover, identify and study all the bats in their area. They can listen, record, and share. They even get the same automatic species ID features as the pros. It's fun, educational, and now – very affordable.

Echo Meter Touch 2 bat detectors for iOS and Android are available now.

-------------------------------------------

The Echo Meter Touch 2 PRO for professional ecologists and serious bat workers at only £370

Designed for professionals who need the highest quality recordings, the new Echo Meter Touch 2 PRO features a state-of-the-art ultrasonic microphone capable of sample rates of 256kHz and 384kHz, creating best-in-class, 16-bit full-spectrum recordings.

The updated Echo Meter Touch app for iOS or Android features pro-only options including adjustable gain and advanced trigger settings – and of course, the latest Kaleidoscope Pro auto-ID classifiers for bats species in North America, the UK, Europe, the Neotropics and South Africa.

Echo Meter Touch 2 PRO bat detectors for iOS and Android are available now.

-------------------------------------------

Built-in Kaleidoscope classifiers suggest the top bat species match in real-time. Data is displayed real-time via information-rich, highly configurable, full-colour spectrograms. GPS enabled devices tag each recording with exact location. Recordings can easily be transferred to any computer for further analysis and reporting.

At these prices, there's no other professional bat research tool that offers this combination of portability, high-quality recording, species identification, and high-detail spectrogram analysis capabilities.

“Overall the Touch is an awesome piece of kit… for the professional bat worker I’d say it’s a no brainer.”– Martin O’Connor, ARBTECH

The Echo Meter app is free, and available right now in the iTunes Store and Google Play Store. It comes pre-loaded with sample recordings, letting you experience many of the advantages Echo Meter Touch will bring to your bat research. Download the app today to see for yourself why Echo Meter Touch is quickly becoming the portable tool of choice for bat biologists all over the world.

The Ultrasonic Module

Simply plug the Ultrasonic Module into your iOS or Android device and immediately start monitoring, recording and analysing bat echolocations. The Ultrasonic Module is compact enough to slip into a shirt pocket, it is made up of premium grade ultrasonic sensor, custom preamp and gain circuitry, an analog-to-digital converter and a microprocessor. The microprocessor streams the data in real-time to your compatible device.

The Echo Meter Touch App

The full-colour spectrogram is incredibly detailed and easy to view. You can scroll through call data with a swipe of your finger. Pinch and zoom the spectrograms for different views while you continue to monitor and record. Listen to sample recordings.

Combined with the Ultrasonic Module, the Echo Meter Touch app has everything you need to monitor, record and identify bats in the field. The app lets you listen to bats in real-time and simultaneously view them on a full-color spectrogram and waveform plot. Wildlife Acoustics' patented Real-Time Expansion (RTE) lets you listen to echolocations in real-time while maintaining the timing and tonality of the bat echolocation. You can also listen to prior echolocations using RTE or traditional time expansion (slow playback).

If you have a device that is GPS enabled, Echo Meter Touch will tag your recordings with useful location data. The free Echo Meter Touch app is available on the iTunes Store and Google Play Store. It includes two bat recordings that let you start practicing with your iOS or Android device right away.  

The app can transfer full spectrum .wav recordings to your computer over a wireless network or cabled connection. Using Wi-Fi, Echo Meter Touch bundles the recordings in a compressed .zip folder and allows downloads by entering a URL in a web browser. Combined with the Auto-ID upgrade, you can identify the species of the bat in the recording and export it with the recording. The integral Bat Auto-ID feature uses the latest Kaleidoscope Pro classifiers to suggest the most likely bat species match in real-time. This makes the Echo Meter Touch a very powerful, fast and convenient tool for on-site professional bat work.

NOTE: Auto ID is intended for use in analyzing recordings of single bats in free flight, low clutter environments. On average, more than half of such recordings will result in classifications with 80% accuracy. Recordings of roost emergence, multiple bats, captive bats, bats in high-clutter environments or bat social calls are not suitable for Auto ID and results may not be accurate.

Most Huawei devices have a technical issue with the USB system that prevents the Echo Meter Touch Ultrasonic Module from being able to stream data.

THINGS TO TRY IF YOUR ANDROID DEVICE DOES NOT RECOGNISE THE ECHO METER TOUCH ULTRASONIC MODULE:

If you are using a micro-USB to USB-C adapter, verify that it is a compatible adapter as supplied by us. Also try reversing the adapter in the phone.
Verify that your phone fulfils the requirements, including OTG compatibility, list above.
Try changing the USB configuration. This procedure gives the Android device's USB system a bit of a reset if it has gotten into a bad state and has shown pretty good success at fixing devices that are not recognizing the module at all (will not show the START button in Live Mode) and also devices that do recognise the device but only show a black spectrogram.
Close all apps.
Open the Settings app and go to System > About phone, or a similar menu, depending on your Android version
Find the "Build number" entry and tap on it repeatedly several times (you will get a countdown as you tap). You should get a notification saying that developer options have been enabled.
In the System menu, go Developer Options.
Select USB Configuration
In this menu, change the option from whatever is currently selected to a different option, other than "Charging", we recommend trying "Media Transfer", "RNDIS" or "MIDID". The actual choice is not so important as the device will reset to what is needed for any attached device. Just the nature of changing this setting, resets the USB system.
Restart the phone.
Open the EMT app and plug the module in.
If nothing improves with the above procedure, try changing the USB Configuration and then restarting the phone a couple more times. We have seen cases where a phone started working perfectly after repeating these steps a few times.

Comment from a client:

"My bat detector microphone failed during a dawn survey and knew that I had a group of dusk surveys starting in two days time. I was not in a good place as I did not have a spare, but my equipment was less than a year old.

After my survey I contacted Martin by email and he called me back on the same day, a few hours later, after a quick nap. He told me he did not have a part in stock, but had already contacted the supplier on my behalf.

The next day I received a replacement part, free of charge and express delivered from Switzerland. I thought it was amazing, and could not believe it was resolved so quickly.

Due to Martin's exceptional service I was good to go with the surveys, and I really would like to thank Martin and Wildlife & Countryside Services for making the dusk surveys happen."
