Livescribe Pulse Echo Smartpen Review

The Echo is a refinement of the original Pulse. It is slimmer, and doesn’t quite look like one of those metal cigar containers. It has twice the memory of my original smartpen. The price has come down over the years significantly making an investment in a smartpen even more attractive.

I use my pen to record initial client interviews as well as depositions. I am able using the Livescribe Desktop software to export a recording to a CD and send it to a client to here. However the best feature is its “point and play” technology which allows me to listen selectively to a recording on my pen by touching a word in my notes. The audio immediately syncs to the part of the conversation and has a five second “skip back/skip forward” feature to account for slow writers like me. I can also listen later to my notes and add additional points of interest.

Audio fidelity is amazingly good. The pen has settings for different environments like lectures or office meetings. Even if you just use the default settings you will be pleased with the output.

What is a Livescribe Pulse Smartpen?

The Livescribe Pulse Smartpen is one of the most recent innovations in the high tech portfolio of Livescribe.  It is a smartpen in the sense that:

  • It can record everything that you write or draw.
  • It can record everything that you dictate because it has an audio capture device that captures the audio in the environment.
  • It has a sort of hard disk that acts as the reservoir of the audio that the pen has collected as well as all the words or drawings that the pen transcribed.
  • It has a speaker that repeats everything that it heard.
  • It has a USB port that allows transfer and storage of files from the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen to the computer.
