If you are interested in a compact, on-mic solution for recording interviews with a handheld mic, check out the Tascam DR-10X and RE-50/B Compact Interview Recording Kit from B&H. Consisting of a Tascam DR-10X plug-on recorder, an Electro-Voice RE50/B omnidirectional microphone, a 4-pack of rechargeable AA batteries with charger, a fur windsock, a microSDHC card, and a microphone flag, the kit allows you to record your interviews in up to 48 kHz/24-bit without the need of any wires or additional equipment.

The DR-10X plugs directly onto the XLR output connector of the RE50/B, allowing you to record directly to the included microSDHC card. It is powered by a single AA battery, so the included 4-pack provides you with ample powering time.

Tascam DR-10X Micro Plug-On Audio Recorder

With the Tascam DR-10X Micro Plug-On Audio Recorder attached directly to your preferred microphone, you can record full-resolution dialog and speech while skipping the trouble of long cable runs and avoiding the confusion of configuring a wireless microphone system. Whether you use a handheld dynamic mic or a battery-powered condenser (both available separately), the lightweight DR-10X can be discreetly affixed to the mic without weighing it down. Thanks to its small, low-profile design, the DR-10X is ideal for news gathering, interviews, weddings, and vlogs where the audio equipment needs to stay out of sight.

Run-and-gun videographers will appreciate its ultra-compact form factor and power-up-and-record workflow for time-sensitive shoots. There's no need to select inputs, arm tracks, or choose channel modes. Connect the DR-10X to your microphone, start recording, and let it roll for the rest of the day. A single AAA battery will keep it running for up to 10 hours, so all-day gigs won't be a problem. Power the DR-10X via USB if you need indefinite operating time for sessions that continue on into the night. Worried about clipping? Don't be. The DR-10X's limiter and auto-level functions work to prevent overloading, while the dual-recording feature makes a safety track at a lower level, just in case.

Inconspicuous and Capable

The lightweight DR-10X easily attaches to a handheld microphone for the ideal compact news gathering recording system. A captive XLR connector keeps the DR-10X firmly connected to your microphone, capturing interviews at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz Broadcast WAV resolution. Offload recordings through the micro-USB connection or by removing the microSD card.

Works with Dynamic Mics or Battery-Powered Condensers

Designed for plug-on connection to an XLR-equipped microphone, the DR-10X requires no cables for operation and features a locking mechanism that ensures a secure, stable fit. Since no phantom power is supplied by the DR-10X, it is perfect for use with handheld dynamic mics or battery-powered shotgun condenser mics mounted on a camera or boompole.

Volume-Adjustable 3.5mm Headphone Output

Connect headphones to the 3.5mm mini-jack output for simple monitoring of file playback or input while recording. The volume is adjustable via side-panel buttons.

Dual Recording Creates a Safety Track at a Lower Level

Knowing that filmmakers and videographers often experience sudden audio volume jumps during filming, the DR-10X has several features to prevent distorted audio, and the most secure is dual recording. This feature captures a copy of your signal at a lower level (-6 dB or -12 dB), as a safety track in case of distortion.

Automatic File Closing Saves File Data upon Power Loss

You can always monitor the battery level on the easy-to-read OLED display. If the battery runs out in the middle of a recording, the unit will automatically save the file before turning off so your take isn't lost. The case is designed so that the batteries can be changed quickly without detaching the recorder from your microphone.

Automatic Gain and Limiter Inhibit Distortion

If the input sound level is too low or too high, an automatic gain control function can increase or decrease the recording volume to an appropriate level. Additionally, the limiter prevents distortion caused by sudden input overloads. These functions save you from worrying about input levels in situations when there is no second chance.

Supports microSD/microSDHC Cards

The DR-10X is compatible with microSD cards (up to 2GB capacity) and microSDHC cards (up to 32GB capacity). Record in WAV format for uncompressed audio quality, or use MP3 format for extended recording time on your media card. A 2GB card will yield over four hours of mono recording time at 24-bit / 48 kHz resolution.

Operates up to 10 Hours Continuously

A single alkaline AAA battery (available separately) will provide up to 10 hours of recording time at 24-bit / 28 kHz resolution. The DR-10X can be operated on disposable lithium or rechargeable NiMH batteries, or via USB bus power.

Compact and Lightweight Body

The DR-10X has been designed to be small, light, and unobtrusive. Perfect for news correspondents, documentary subjects, or wedding hosts, the DR-10X won't come between you and the perfect shot. Plus, since it weighs just 2.4 ounces with a battery (available separately), your subject will forget it's even there.

Record Switch Design Prevents Accidental Use

The recording switch uses a sliding mechanism to prevent accidental use. In addition, the hold function can prevent recording from being stopped by unintentional contact with a button.

WAV and MP3 Formats

The DR-10X has a built-in clock and supports recording to BWF format, which has time information for improved searching, editing, and software compatibility. In addition to WAV and BWF format files, recording and playback of MP3 files is supported.

Additional Features

  • Creates mono or poly WAV files
  • Adjustable recording level
  • Low-cut filter reduces rumble
  • Time track incrementing function can create new files at regular intervals (about every 15 minutes) during recording
  • Easy-to-read OLED display
  • Micro-USB port enables easy data exchange with computers
