    Olympus ME-51S reviews

    ME-51S Stereo Microphone is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results Used the microphone with WS-311M for recording group discussions. The results were great. Each voice came through crystal clear.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not great quality Using this microphone was a little frustrating because the quality wasn't as good as the inbuilt microphone for the sony voice recorder that I had bought. There is a lot of ambient noise and just doesn't seem to be able to pick up decent audio. It's quite chunky, and from what I have found it doesn't have any accessories for wind protection. It is quite good if you are just after something convenient for personal recordings, but once you start wanting something to show to other people it would need a lot of work in post to sound ok. I should have expected this from the price but other reviews made this seem like a bargain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of Hardware I do some freelance reporting/photography and wanted something more for my DM-520. This works, almost too well. Omnidirectional, it picks up everything - and learning to think in an x/y/z axial plane took some work. The tie-clasp is an inappropriate holder for this, especially if your tie ruffles -- but I haven't found a better solution yet. Maybe attach it onto the end of a rod and let it dangle. Or drop from the ceiling. It's money well spent.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Mic For Pricepoint This microphone is great for scratch audio. Have purchased it for my Red Scarlet - plugs right into the front and works without batteries. It is not directional, and captures a lot of atmos but that's what's expected. For what it is, it is an exceptional product. It was used at a 21st I was filming at (loud music and all) - and the sound came up fine. Could hear birthday messages to camera over the loud music quite well. The cord and clip that come with it are also very handy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality recording I use this mic for recording concert with Olympus LS 10 in 24/96. The quality is the same as the internal mic of LS 10 in my oppinion. great value for the price

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent add on to your Olympus I've had one with my WS311 recorder. Unfortunately, it has been lost. I am now ordering another one from B&H. Fell in love with the previous one. Delivers great results. Could pick up weakest sounds across the room. Wish it was a bit cheaper though. Otherwise, stick to it. It delivers better results than recorder's built in mic. Thanks B&H!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ME-51S Stereo Microphone by Olympus we got the mics in good time - they have more gain than the built in mics - and the units come with ext cords if you need to clip them to the person you are recording - they don't need any ext power - just plug them in -- they work great - in stereo
    Date published: 2013-11-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Audio This microphone is great to add to portable video camera's for better quality audio. It is smaller than it's sony counterpart but both deliver good performance. Check it out
