The internal 4GB memory supports up to 1000 hours of recording and the included rechargeable battery can power the recorder for up to 37 hours. It also has a microSD card slot, so you can add an additional 32GB of external memory. The WS-822 is equipped with two internal directional condenser microphones. It has a built-in USB 2.0 connector as well, which supports direct connectivity with your PC or Mac - no USB cable is required. The recorder has a built-in mic with noise cancellation technology, but it also has a microphone jack for connecting an external mic. It supports Voice Balancer and Voice Playback functions as well. Other features include a calendar search function, a scene select function, six folders that hold up to 200 files each, and support for up to 99 index marks per file.

Record for Hours
The WS-822 has 4GB of internal memory for up to 1000 hours of recording time when using the WMA format. Plus, the included rechargeable battery supports up to 37 hours of battery life. You'll be able to capture notes, lectures, and more while still having room to store documents. The device also features a microSD slot with the potential to hold up to 32GB of additional memory.
Voice Balancer Function
The Voice Balancer function adjusts the volume levels of all speakers to a more equal level so that it is easier to hear everyone more clearly.
Voice Playback Function
Voice Playback allows you to skip the non-voice portions of a recording and only playback the parts with recorded voices, making for more seamless recordings that are easier to transcribe.
USB Direct Link to Your PC or Mac
With the recorder's convenient "USB Direct" design, a flip-out USB 2.0 connector makes it is easy to transfer your files to your Mac/PC seamlessly and without the need for a USB cable.
Multi-Format Recording & Playback
Record and playback audio files using LPCM, MP3 or WMA formats.
USB Storage Device
The recorder can connect directly to a computer thanks to its built-in USB connector, so you can quickly transfer data and charge the included rechargeable battery. It's also equipped with a microSD card slot, which means you can transfer data to your computer by inserting the microSD card into your computer's card reader.
Dual Microphones with Noise Cancellation Technology
This recorder features two internal directional condenser microphones. It also provides noise cancellation technology, so any background noise that may have been captured during recording is greatly reduced.
Calendar Search Function
Audio files saved on the recorder are automatically marked with the date. Because files are displayed by the calendar format, you can quickly find the file you are looking for by the date of recording.
Scene Select Function
Wherever you are, whether it's a conference room, large hall, or at home dictating, the recorder's microphones will automatically adjust to capture the best sound depending on your setting.
Index Marks & Folder Storage
With the WS-822, you can set up to 99 index marks per file. Plus, you can store up to 200 files in each of the five folders.

      Comments about 4GB WS-822 Digital Voice Recorder (Blue):

      A handy piece of equipment, which has been an upgrade from Olympus' earlier prototypes. Decent enough quality for basic recordings and some instances of professional use. I like that it has 4GB internal memory and can support memory cards for gazillions of hours more recording than you will ever need. The battery life is OK too.

                        The blue finish version blends in better, strangely enough. The USB sticks out, but is convenient when you get home.
