The LS-P2 from Olympus is a linear PCM (WAV) and MP3 recorder capable of sample rates of 96 kHz, resolutions of 24-bit, and wireless transmission to headphones or speakers via Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. Lightweight at 2.7 oz, it's a compact and portable recorder with a Tresmic three-microphone system: two mics capture stereo at a 90° angle, while a third center microphone captures low frequencies. Its included retractable USB cable allows you to connect to computers directly as well as recharge a NiMH AAA battery sitting within its enclosure—should you opt for a rechargeable battery over its included alkaline one.

Bluetooth Capability
Bluetooth 2.1+EDR for short-range wireless connection to headphones and speakers. You can use an Android phone running the Olympus Audio Controller BT app to remotely control the recorder as well.
Recording Capabilities
The LS-P2 features a three-microphone system to capture depth, fullness, and stereo field. Two microphones are arranged at a 90° angle, with an added central microphone to capture lower bass frequencies. This Tresmic combination provides a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz when the center microphone is on and 60 Hz to 20 kHz when it is off.
96 kHz / 24-bit Capability
The LS-P2 supports linear PCM recording up to 24-bit and sampling frequencies as high as 96 kHz.
Manual Level Settings and Limiter
You can fine-tune the sensitivity of the microphone to match the sound source, maximizing the dynamic range. This is a particularly important function when recording music. The limiter function is effective for keeping volume below a specific point, thus avoiding unwanted distortion.
Intelligent Auto Mode
This mode automatically adjusts the microphone sensitivity according to the input level in real-time.
Playback Normalization
The LS-P2's normalization function raises the volume of recordings to its highest limit without causing distortion upon playback.
On-Board Equalizer
"Rock," "Pop," "Jazz," or customized "User" equalizer settings are possible on the LS-P2.
Voice Playback Function
This function allows you to skip non-voice parts during playback and only play the parts of the file where there is vocal content, thus saving time during business-oriented listening sessions or transcription.
Auto Voice Balancer
Balances all recorded voices on playback to make dialogue easier to hear.
Noise Cancellation
Powerfully reduce unwanted ambiance during playback.
Direct PC Connection
The built-in USB connector can be deployed and stored using the slide lever. With this feature, you can connect directly to a computer without using an external cable or software.
File Editing
Split files, trim files, or remove unwanted space between audible material.
Tripod Adapter
The LS-P2 comes with a small diameter tripod socket for mounting to tripods.
