Olympus WS-853 8GB Digital
Voice Recorder - Black:
Olympus WS-853 8GB is a digital voice recorder with two directional microphones
positioned at a 90° layout for capturing audio. It is recognized for its clear
audio quality and superb operability features the intelligent Auto Mode which
automatically adjusts the recording level to match the volume of the sound
source. It features a built-in stand to prevent surface vibrations and a direct
USB computer connection to conveniently save your data and charge the batteries.
The recorder displays only the necessary information in Simple Mode and supports
beginners by limiting the functions in the menu to those which are frequently
used. When recordings contain multiple speakers, the Voice Balancer makes softer
voices louder and ensures that louder voices stay below a given threshold. This
provides playback where everyone can be heard clearly. The digital voice
recorder is powered by two AAA dry-cell batteries or two Olympus nickel-metal
hydride rechargeable batteries.
