About this product

Note: Existing owners of EMT2 USB-C devices will now be able to update the firmware on their devices to make them compatible with iOS devices. This can be done by connecting your device to an Android device with the latest version of the Wildlife Acoustics app. Please take note that only iOS devices with native USB-C ports will be compatible. This means that devices with lightning ports either directly or through an adapter will not work with the EMT2/EMT2 PRO.  Any new devices will be software compatible out of the box. Please see our blog for more:Echo Meter Touch – Upgrading for iOS (

The Echo Meter Touch 2 turns your Android/iOS smartphone or tablet into a state-of-the-art bat detector. This tiny device plugs directly into the USB-C socket of your phone or tablet and, when used with the free app, will let you listen to, view, record, and identify the sounds made by the bats that you encounter. 

Detect and Identify Bats:
The Echo Meter Touch 2 listens to the sound made by bats flying nearby and, using its complex built-in algorithms will suggest the most likely species. You can also click on each species to learn more about it. The EM Touch 2 currently covers bats found in North America, the Neotropics, U.K., Europe and South Africa.

Hear Ultrasonic Bat Sounds:
Bats use ultrasonic calls both to detect their surroundings and to communicate with each other. These sounds are too high to be heard by the unaided human ear. The EM Touch uses a special microphone combined with software to transform this sound into an audible frequency. You can listen either through the speaker of your phone/tablet or using earphones. You can also view the bat call as a sonogram which is a visual representation of the sound. With some experience, you will learn how to recognise the different species based on the shape of their sonograms.

Record your Calls:
The Echo Meter Touch app lets you record your calls on your phone or tablet, giving you an exciting record of the places you have been and the bats you have heard. If your device has GPS functionality then it will also tag each call and display them on Google Maps. 

Share your Recordings:
Send your recordings to your friends or colleagues by text or email for them to view using the Echo Meter Touch app. You can even send your recordings to your PC or Mac via WiFi.

If you are a consultant or bat worker, why not take a look at the Echo Meter Touch 2 Pro?

The Echo Meter Touch 2 can only be used with compatible devices as per Wildlife Acoustics' recommended list. Please make sure you read this before purchasing a device. The Echo Meter Touch 2 has USB-C connector. Customers using devices with a Micro-USB connection will need to purchase an adapter. Please note adapters need to be on-the-go (OTG ) compliant
