I have found this product to be an efficient and inexpensive aid to recording phone conversations provided I used a corded telephone. It did not work at all on the cordless telephone set I normally use.

So, when making phone conversations I wish to record, I now ensure I use my corded telephone, attatch the sucker containing the microphone to the back of the telephone handset ear-piece, switch on the recorder and make the call. It does the job perfectly well, with both sides of the conversation being recorded with equal clarity.

For such an inexpensive piece of kit I was surprised that this item worked so well. The sucker attached to the handset of my phone and stayed there until I chose to remove it. Even though I used a cheap digital recorder the sound quality was excellent with both sides of the conversation being recorded clearly and without interference.

"How can a telephone microphone designed to record both sides of a conversation and costing under £1.50 possibly work?" I wondered.

I needn't have bothered as it works well.

You need to attach it to a personal voice recorder or a tape recorder etc. and it provides a clear recording of telephone conversations.

OK, it's not BBC hi-fi quality but you are not paying hundreds of pounds!

One minor snag is that on my matt finished telephones the suction cup only holds for a couple of minutes, but I found that a bit of adhesive tape holds it securely.

Straight out of the box it doesn't work at all. Just hiss picked up and nothing else. Total junk, but thats what you get for paying 1.99, but I would expect a product to at least work even if its crap. I haven't contacted the sell, as theres no point for a junk item like this and it's more hassle to send it back than its worth.

Just received this item which was promptly delivered and securely packed and which works a treat. For this small amount of money I was prepared to take a chance - but it works just fine. I can hear the caller and myself as clearly as need be for the purposes of recording a telephone conversation. If used with the personal voice recorder I also bought from Amazon (see my review) you can record a conversation and transfer it to the computer and email it to wherever it's required. Excellent. Recommended.

It's a basic inexpensive pickup coil that is sensitive to magnetic fields between about 300-3000Hz, so matches the response of a traditional telephone quite well but it is not "hi-fi". The product description is rather misleading as it does not have "a sensitive microphone" as advertised so will not act as an audio michrophone but this does not stop it working as a telephone pickup coil. With a low pass filter it also works well as an inexpensive low frequency electromagnetic sensor but that another story...

I purchased this to connect to a Philips Voice Tracer LSH0602. It wouldn't stick to my Siemens cordless phone so I simply held it in place to test it. All I could hear from the recording was loud interference. I then tried it with a Philips cordless phone with the same result. Totally useless. I then pressed a cheap microphone I have to the earpiece with the same result so I can't blame the telephone pickup for that problem specifically. I then used a normal corded phone and stuck the pickup to the back of the earpiece. This time no interference but the sound was rather faint but audible. I can't see me using it and for the low price I won't bother returning it.I think in future any calls which I need recording I will simply put on speaker phone and record the conversation directly to the voice recorder.

The coil is not the one pictured, it's one made by Eagle. It was well packaged, however it was DOA with an open wire inside.

It would cost as much as I paid to return it, so I won't even bother. I don't recommend this product, best to spend a bit more on a higher quality pickup coil.
