Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The TP-7 is a supersensitive microphone for telephone conferencing. Just plug it into the "MIC" jack of your recorder, and put the earphone side into your ear. When speaking on the telephone, the TP-7 will capture both sides of the conversation for recording on your voice recorder. Frequency is 50 - 20,000 Hz.

It plugs into a 3.5 mm monaural jack and comes with 2 plug adapters to convert either to 3.5 mm stereo plug or to a 2.5 mm monaural plug.

First rate piece of kit. I can't praise it enough. It's simple, and it does exactly what it says from the moment you take it out of its box.

I am a 'one-person-band' supplying computer support and training to small business and individuals. As well as occasionally offering complete lessons via the phone, I often get calls asking for help with a problem ("It suddenly started doing...!" or "I don't know what I did, but now it won't...!"), and have to go through a lot of questions to ascertain exactly what's happening, or has happened, before offering to find a solution and get back to them. This little gizmo is a godsend, saving me writing copious notes at great speed in a shorthand I often can't then read back. Similarly invaluable for recording detailed instructions on how to find customers' premises, or lists of requirements before researching the best suggested buy for new equipment. It's also proved worth its weight in gold in recording a personal conversation about a potentially very volatile situation, thereby making it possible to be totally accurate when recounting what was said.

If it was bigger I would hug it!

So, the practical details. What you get appears to be a straight forward earpiece, with the usual little 'jack' plug on the end of the wire. However where the outer side of an earpiece would normally be solid/closed in, with this little beauty the outside forms a tiny, flat, microphone. So you put the earpiece side into your ear, and hold the phone against the tiny flat microphone side.

This nifty gadget allows you to record any phone conversations - landlines and mobiles - without complications, and with excellent sound quality. I have used mine in combination with a WS-40 digital recorder for the past year and it is fantastic for phone interviews. I rave about it so often that two colleagues have purchased it based on my recommendation.

For occasional and mobile recording, this device does the job quite well. Its not the most comfortable solution though - so I doubt you would choose it for daily use. I have plugged it in to my Olympus voice recorder and directly into my laptop for recording - both work fine. It sits OK under my telephone headset too. Came with 3 rubber ear inserts of different sizes. Its fitted with a mono 3.5mm miniplug but adapters for stereo 3.5mm and mono 2.5mm were also supplied with mine.

Actually can't believe how good this was - it recorded both my voice and the person I was talking to very clearly. You could hear that he was talking on a phone but clarity was the essence of the day. I definitely recommend this product especially as it was so easy to use - one end in the recorder machine - mic jammed in my ear and telephone clamped to mic and ear! Simple really!

I bought this pickup to use with my digital voice recorder to use with my phone when I needed to record a series of important telephone calls. The speech quality is not very good but intelligible most of the time depending on the caller/equipment/line. Both sides of the conversation are recorded so it is possible to focus on the conversation rather than having to scribble hasty notes. It appears to be a fairly simple device resembling a mp3 player earpiece but with a microphone built in. It is lightweight and I would think vulnerable so care would be required to avoid damage. The earphone/mic is connected to the recorder with a thin wire and mic plug. To use the device you fit the earpiece in your ear then put the phone to your ear. (You can use any type of phone) and press record stop or pause on your recorder as you require. I tried various other ways of recording but this is the simplest and best low cost solution that I have found that is adeqate for my needs. I would describe the sound quality as just adeqate for most telephone conversations. I have taken off one star as the sound quality is not very good but in all other respects it is a good solution.

Great little product. Simple to use. Plugs into my DM20 Olympus recorder and quite comfortable in the ear. Works with any phone and picks up both sides of the conversation with similar volume levels.

On occasions when I require audio recording from a telephone, this device has proved both reliable and affordable.

Settings advice

In my case, when using a 'Olympus' digital recorder, the microphone does take some power from the device. However, the microphone settings on the device work (i.m.h.o) best by selecting 'non-stereo' / 'low' microphone sensitivity and to record at least 'SP' recording quality.

This optimises the incoming and outgoing voice levels and gives better quality recordings. The resulting recordings prove clear but clearly limited by the telephone medium.

So in themselves the microphone is fine, but you may find confusion if you need to record both telephone and normal voices? In m.h.o, i found a method around it being to buy two recorders, with each digital recorder set differently.
