Phones are great for voice recording grocery lists, a note to yourself, or getting a short voice message from a friend. But what happens when we have an important phone call to record, a crucial lecture to take notes on, or an unanticipated 2 hour business meeting with no one to record minutes? A phone can voice record, but what good is sifting through such a long message?

You need something that was built for recording in crystal clear quality, transcribing what was said, and organizing all of that text. As with every new tech, what you need has to be AI powered. 

In this review we will be going over PlAUD NOTE, a one-click voice recording device with the ability to transcribe and summarize with the power of ChatGPT. 

The Product


Is this a truly new product that you can’t find on the market? Or this is a product that defines an entirely new product category. In some cases, combining several features into one or introducing a new feature to an old product is also considered an innovation.

Individual recording devices are nothing new. Ever since we had cassette tapes we have been taking advantage of ditching the ever convenient pen and paper for just pressing a button. Voice recordings have always been more clear, convenient, and portable, than having to frantically write everything down.

So voice recording devices have been around forever, what makes this one different?

PLAUD NOTE separates itself from the competition with one major upgrade, CHAT GPT integration. No one wants to comb through hours of conversation to find specific bits of information or have to write a summary. The AI automatically summarizes the transcribed text making it super convenient to share, go over, and edit. 

The PLAUD NOTE app does much of the heavy lifting for you. It gets the recorded audio from the PLAUD NOTE and uses Chat GPT to instantly transform hours of audio to a neatly organized document that you can easily edit and share. 

This is a significant improvement for voice recorders but considering most of the innovation is done from the app, it isn’t that groundbreaking as a device.

How much better is it than the competition? Is it faster? Bigger? Cooler? More affordable? There needs to be a solid reason why you should back this project over any other.

PLAUD NOTE is one of the smartest voice recording devices out there. It brings together the power of an intelligent app with powerful hardware that would overwhelm and drain a phone too quickly. 

A recording device with a similar storage capacity is fine if you need to go back and completely listen to everything someone said and enjoy hearing someone talk. But if you have work to do and need the information as organized as possible, there is no beating PLAUD NOTE. 

Compared to other voice recorders that transcribe audio to text, PLAUD NOTE instantly uses AI to organize information to be easily read and shared. This really helps people save time reviewing recordings and there is no big need to go back and sift through information. You can really impress everyone at the office with a tool like this.

The Team


How capable is the team? Have they developed something like this before? Do they have crowdfunding experience? Manufacturing experience? A lot of campaigns fail to deliver their product because they don’t know what they’re doing.

IZYREC, the team behind PLAUD NOTE is no stranger to the game. They have been developing similar products for the Chinese market and have recently moved to the international market with their past Kickstarter campaign, iZyrec, a similar voice recording device.

Looking at the previous campaign, it really shows they know what they are doing. The comments only show positive reviews for those that received their product. People have been using it for months and are particularly happy with the quality of the voice recording and battery life. 

There is not much on the team outside of the Kickstarter page, which is not a big issue as they are based in China and have just entered the international market. 

Team Reliability Score
26 /30


How transparent are the campaigners? Do they give their backers valuable updates on their progress? Do they engage with their backers? Crowdfunding is all about community, sharing information, and building meaningful relationships with the people who fund your project.

The campaign has just begun and there are not many updates available but you can find reviews of the prototype on their Kickstarter page. They actively answer questions in the comment section and have a good understanding of their product. 

While it looks like the hardware is set in stone, the team is looking to address ways to record audio from calls taken on bluetooth devices, considering it was one of the more common concerns from backers in the comment section.

There is a strong sense of a professional team behind the PLAUD NOTE. It is normal for the creator not to be at the front of this project, as it is more technical and not some groundbreaking passion project that needs a story to sell. 

Team Attitude Score
18 /20


If you ever had to sift through a long recording of a lecture, interview, or conference call, you know how much time is wasted just trying to find information. The PLAUD NOTE really is the perfect solution for those who need information organized instantly and readily available on their phone. 

Definitely consider this smart device if you want something that your phone alone can’t do. 

Are you ready to impress the office?
