      Comments about Olympus 2GB WS-821 Digital Voice Recorder:

      I used it for voice recording, not music, and it deliveres very good quality. The microphones catch almost everything you could hear yourself, with little distortion. And all is in a very compact and convenient devise. You should be carefull for the sounds generated by touching it, or by the surface it is on though.

        Comments about Olympus 2GB WS-821 Digital Voice Recorder:

        The microphones pick up really well. This recorder is all I need to capture a meeting in a medium-sized conference room. I'm very pleased to have such a powerful tool at such a reasonable price. You just need to handle it carefully because the device is not ruggedized and may not survive a fall of several feet onto a hard surface.

          Comments about Olympus 2GB WS-821 Digital Voice Recorder:

          I have been recording meetings for years and I did some tests with this little unit and was shocked by the quality of the recordings! WOW! They are wonderful. I can almost see what the people look like who were doing the talking. I tried from the front, where I expect to have a good recording and from the back of the room, where over 100 people were in front of me, whispering and talking low, and I can hear it all! Even the speakers were audible and very clear. I could not be happier with any product other than this one. I am recommending this for everyone I know who record events!
