I’m really kicking myself for not having a capable voice recorder at #140conf this week. If you’re in the same boat and need dependable crisp recordings up-close (for interviews) and from a distance (for presentations), you too may be interested in this little number. Called the Best Digital Voice Recorder, it has scored top marks over at HS for superior recording distance and playback clarity and can record voices up to 50-feet away without obscuring a speaker’s P’s, B’s and S’s.
Playing-back clear recordings with minimal background noise, the Best Digital Voice Recorder is made by Olympus and uses Variable Control Voice Actuator technology to detect a pre-determined volume level and remove silent pauses – while its low-cut filter reduces low-frequency sounds.
Easy to set up and including 2GB of built-in memory, the Best Digital Voice Recorder can capture up to 533 hours of audio in either MP3 or WMA format, includes a voice filter and noise cancellation and makes downloads easy to both Mac and PC over its built-in USB port.
Including 2 x AAA batteries that fetch an impressive 51 hours of operation, the Best Digital Voice Recorder measures a pocket-sized 4.5″ long x 1.5″ wide x 0.5″ thick and is available now from Hammacher Schlemmer for $169.95.
