With the a white color exclusively issued for B&H Tascam DR-10L Micro Portable Audio Recorder with Lavalier 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 the included omnidirectional lavalier mic or connect your preferred lav to the Sennheiser-compatible mic input, the entire setup can be discreetly affixed to your sound source. Just over 2 x 2 inches (and only 1-inch deep), the DR-10L is ideal for videography, interviews, weddings, vlogs, and lectures where the audio equipment needs to stay out of sight.

Run-and-gun filmmakers 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. Clip the DR-10L to a belt, or stash it in a pocket, 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-10L via USB if you need indefinite operating time for sessions that continue on into the night. Worried about clipping? Don't be. The DR-10L'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

Building on the success of the DR-10X and the DR-10SG, the DR-10L marries the industry-standard TASCAM portable mini-recorder with a high-performance lavalier microphone. Easy to use and easy to wear, the DR-10L can become your secret agent for better audio capture.

Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone

The included lavalier microphone features a mic clip for stable attachment to your sound source. Its omnidirectional polar pattern ensures that audio will be picked up from all directions, reducing inconsistencies caused by head movements and changes in mic position.

Locking 3.5mm Mic Input Jack

The locking 3.5mm mic input jack not only works with the included lav mic, but also provides a secure connection point for most Sennheiser lavalier mics and mics wired to the Sennheiser standard. A 2V mic bias can be activated via the DR-10L's menu system for mics that require plug-in power.

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-10L 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 removing the recorder from its belt clip.

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-10L 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-10L can be operated on disposable lithium or rechargeable NiMH batteries, or via USB bus power.

Compact and Lightweight Body

The DR-10L has been designed to be small, light, and easy to conceal. Perfect for on-camera talent, documentary subjects, or entire wedding parties, the DR-10L can easily be hidden away so that nothing comes between you and the perfect shot. Weighing just 2.2 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-10L 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, 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
  • Includes belt clip, windscreen, USB cable, and custom case

It seems to be a well thought out piece of equipment, and if it's made as well as my Tascam DR-40 I'll be very pleased. For the few weeks that I have had it, it works fine.

unbelievably dependable recording with good level control!

very happy! have 3. 32gb cards max is plenty for anything. great for primary or backup for wireless mic on talent, groom and minister, tv commercials, on talent during a drone shoot. use medium level choice for control, use back-up track option for -6 db safety if needed. always use a fresh AAA lithium battery is my advice. and fast sandisk gold&black trimmed speed new micro sd card. big tip: make absolutely sure you gaff tape the mic in place, front and back, to anchor it and all fabric/jacket/ties from rubbing on lapel mic or from falling in mid shoot to beltline lol. it is the size of a tictac box. so small. so light. after your first set-up, unlikely you will have to do anything but format the card and hit record. ps to see remaining time, press the menu button. great to have one on the wedding lecturn, on the groom, on the minister, even the wedding singer. ha! or to leave in the office space to hear what people say about you...

I Own 3 Of These

My new work horse in the field for on-the-fly interviews. They are invaluable for police/fire ride alongs because I don't have to worry about wireless interference and mixing. The settings fit my needs and the battery lasts longer then needed. This has really upped the quality of my stories because I can wire up anybody and it's especially helpful when I'm not allowed into a hot zone.

Love these mics!

This is a great tool for your audio/video kit. I've used the Tascam in the past, and always love the result. Sound quality is nice. The ease of use is what makes it! No hassle with connected cords, simply pin this to your subject and go!

I could not stop recording with the stop button. I had to remove the battery to stop recording. It has been happening since day 1 when I bought it. Is it defective?
Asked by: Danny
Defining what you are pushing or sliding might help. But the record start and stop function is the slider switch on the side. Sliding and holding the slider down turns the unit off and on. While on if you slide up and hold momentarily that begins and ends recording. The four square push buttons on the front are for playback and menu functions.

I’ve got the Tascam dr-10L yesterday. The OLED display under the clear protective display panel is not aligned. This is visible when the unit is turned ON. I clearly see that the OLED display rectangle not properly aligned with the protective display panel rectangle because its right side is higher than its left side. In other words, there are display external clear panel and the OLED display rectangles are misaligned: the sides of these two rectangles are not parallel to each other. Sorry, but It is causing annoyance. Anyone has same problem on its unit?
