          Comments about Olympus TP-8 Telephone Pick-Up:

          This is a very simple, but ingenious, idea. I sometimes like to record long phone conversations with clients and others, so that I don't have to worry about taking notes. Other mikes I have used in the past didn't work well and made the voices very hard to hear over the buzzing. This one records both voices perfectly clearly and is easy to set up and use.

            works well, weighs very little, works with any type of phone. Only drawback: wire from earpiece to jack plug is vulnerable to splitting and tangles.

              Comments about Olympus TP-8 Telephone Pick-Up:

              This product is designed to be very easy to record both sides of a telephone conversation. You simply plug it into the microphone port of your recorder, place the earpiece in your ear, and then use the phone (in that ear, of course) as you would normally.

              The sound comes out clear, and the whole thing can be set up before the call is made, which I prefer to some of the apps that will record, but you have to call a separate number first.

              The only downside I can think of is that your ear gets a little tired, as you can't switch ears, but really, the pick-up couldn't be simpler. I'm an editor/writer, and it's come in extremely handy for phone interviews for articles.

              (Do remember, though: Some states require that you inform the other party that you are recording, and get their permission. This is easily done with this pickup.)

                We use this product during the course of our duties during criminal investigations. The mic on this product is sensitive enough and clear enought that we can record conversations from cell phones, and in person during warrant executions.

                                                i needed to produce audio recordings of telephone interviews for a research project. this little gizmo works perfectly! i have a digital Olympus recorder. both ends of the conversation are clear and evenly balanced.

                                                  I plan to use it to record conversations with customer service representatives from my bank, phone company, insrance company, etc. They record my calls to them, why shouldn't I do the same and avoid misunderstandings.
                                                  Excellent recording quality from cellular and cordless phones when combined with Olympus LS-7 Digital Voice Recorder.

                                                    Handy little gadget that takes no batteries. The mic is sentitive though and can pick up rustling of the phone.
