Along with binoculars, birding apps, and a backpack, WIRED Magazine included Haikubox as essential birding gear in Here's All the Gear You Need to Start Birding.
"Want to know which birds are in the yard without having to get up and go outside? The Haikubox (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is an always-on listening device that can identify the species around your home by their songs and alert you when new ones arrive. It's a Shazam for birds! It's very easy to install and set up anywhere, and it's impressively accurate at identification."
