Proper Equipment is Key to a Successful Ghost Hunt
As for the recorder, I ordered mine from eBay for around $20 and it captures great EVPs. EVP stands for Electronic Voice Phenomena which means capturing a voice you did not hear with your own ears while on investigation. Many popular ghost hunting TV shows use the K2 meter but my group uses the ELF Zone meter. They work on the same concept, but the K2 is easier to manipulate while asking questions, it has less filters then an ELF Zone. The ELF Zone runs $10 while a K2 averages around $60.

Reviewing recordings can be done in numerous sittings, which I recommend to break up the monotony and so you don’t miss anything. To capture an EVP, listen to an entire recording then crop and paste any findings you have in to a clip for review. Once you’ve assembled your evidence, it’s time to share with your friends and decide if it’s good and clear.
