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.Read more ›
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.

Picks up recordings very well when using headset or over-ear headphonesPublished 19 months ago by D Smith
Purchased as a "just in case" so never used seriously. But checked and works well. Shame about the Olympus digital recorder - so difficult to extract audio. Read morePublished 24 months ago by Jim
