      Olympus WS-852 Digital Voice Recorder

      The silver WS-852 from Olympus is a digital voice recorder with two directional microphones positioned at a 90° layout for capturing audio. Recognized for its clear audio quality and superb operability, the WS-852 features the intelligent Auto Mode which automatically adjusts the recording level to match the volume of the sound source.

      The digital voice recorder is powered by two AAA dry-cell batteries (model LR03) or two Olympus nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries. Some other features include a built-in stand to prevent surface vibrations and a direct USB computer connection to conveniently save your data . 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.

      In conclusion, users can rely on the WS-852 recorder for over 1,000 hours of recording time, over 100 hours of battery life, file searching capabilities, and a noise-cancellation feature that provides clear playback quality. There is 4GB of internal memory, and there's also a microSDHC slot for memory cards up to 32GB.

      Intelligent Auto Mode - Does the adjusting for you.

      To make listening to your recordings more comfortable, Intelligent Auto Mode automatically adjusts the recording level to match the volume of the sound source. When a speaker is talking loudly, the recorder reduces the input level, and for soft voices the recorder increases the input level – to always provide an even level of volume.

      Simple Mode makes use easy, even for beginners.

      Simple Mode is perfect for beginners, as it shows only the necessary information in a large font and key functions in the menu. The first time the recorder is activated, users are asked to choose from either Normal Mode or Simple Mode, so initial set up is easy. Once you become accustomed to using the recorder, you can switch to normal mode should you desire more detailed information and settings.

      Direct PC connection - The simplest way to save data.

      Save data easily and conveniently with the built-in USB connector. Simply transfer recordings from the voice recorder to an external hard disk drive or use it like a USB stick to share documents. This makes it possible to easily save data anytime, anywhere without the need to bring along a USB cable. For the WS-852, the USB connector is equipped with a protective cover to keep dust out of the connector.
