Bought this to listen to my rats and mice, which I'm doing as I type, it's fascinating! Nice size and very nice price. Unfortunately the first one sent to me didn't work, but to Amazon's credit I sent it back at no cost to me (other than a bit of time and petrol) and it was replaced. Looking forward to detecting some bats in the summer.

It looks like a toy, but it's a powerful ultrasonic detector, to "listen" bats, but also keys, coins etc. Easy to use, really funny for children, fascinating for adults.

I got this for less than the advertised price here - just £7! It's remarkably sensitive - picking up bees from several feet away with ease.

The big secret here is that it's very likely to be based on the same circuitry as dedicated bat detectors costing seven or eight times more. The manufacturers came up with a cheap beauty here!

Only bad point is the on/off/volume switch is stiff, and prone to early failure. Not a big deal if you're any good with a screwdriver!..

Bought this for my 6yr old nephew, who enjoyed listing to hair rustle, scratching of clothing & various things around the house. You can only do that for so long before we all became bored. I had put batteries in beforehand, because it doesn't come with any. You have to adjust the frequency & volume to hear different things, which he found a bit tricky to work out. No complaints with the actual product, it does what it should, just don't think its something that will be used more than a few times, so more of a novelty item.

I bought this as a cheap way of listening to my pet rats - bat detectors are normally much more expensive, so I was very happy with the price of this product. It has been brilliant to listen to my rats' (usually) inaudible squeaks. The microphone is sensitive enough, the volume is definitely load enough. It is a bit chunky, but that is hardly an issue for the price. Very happy, it has been perfect for my uses.

I bought this to hear the ultrasonic sounds that my pet rats make, and it works great! Its awesome to be able to hear them, and I cant wait to let my other friends with rats use it and hear their babies as well. It took awhile to ship to the United States, but it was definitely worth it!

Bought for an adult as birthday present. He was very impressed and, as he is a bit of a gadget man, that is praise indeed.

Brilliant little device for the money. Bought this for my son to explore his grandparents woodland garden and look for bats around dusk. Worked a charm! We detected 5 or 6 bats. The detection was clear on the 40khz setting and the range of the device was good enough to track the chirps the device picks up from them.
