I’ve got a quick review for you today of a very small product, it’s a voice recorder and an MP3 player from a company called Uqique. The recorder is tiny, and has 8gb of storage but it can hold up to 96 hours of recordings so you can record a whole lot. There’s not much to it, just an on/off button and two volume buttons and a 3.5mm port and that’s it. It’s a decent little product. Read on to learn more…

Let’s start with a video unboxing and then move on:
The packaging for the Uqique voice recorder is a slipcover style box with the recorder itself snug in a foam bed when you slide open the box. Under the recorder you’ll find the accessories including a pair of headphones, USB cable and user manual. The headphones are just plain really, typical earbuds. The USB cable is odd, one side has a standard male USB connection while the other has what looks like a standard 3.5mm audio jack but the jack is used for both charging and data transfer.
The recorder itself is very small, it’s less than 2 inches long and not quite 1/4 inch thick. The recorder is well made and it seems durable and it has a metal housing.
On the top edge is a 3.5mm jack and a sliding switch for on and off. On the bottom are two buttons with plus and minus on it that was used for volume control. In between the buttons is a tiny LED that lights up red when charging and turns blue when charging in complete. The LED is also used to let you know the device has started recording but oddly it turns off even while it’s recording.
The Uqique voice recorder is a decent product overall, it’s very simple to use for sure, and it provides decent quality audio records.
The included headphones are ok I guess, nothing special, personally nothing I would use if I was using this as an MP3 player which you can do of course. It’s only 8gb capacity yes but that’s more than enough for a few hours of music for sure.
I don’t like the LED light as it doesn’t blink or stay on to let you know it’s actually recording. The LED comes on, blinks a few times and then goes off but yet it’s still recording until you switch it off.
I don’t like the USB charging and data transfer cable, I understand it but I don’t like it as it’s proprietary and if you lose it you won’t be able to do much with it.
