  • Review by Lew Miller "Silver Eagle"

    This microphone is intended for recording sounds at a distance, which is the purpose of all cardioid (unidirectional) microphones. Its output level is higher than on most microphones, so there is a possibility of distortion, especially if the sound source (such as the speaker) is too close. For a normal voice, I suggest it be held 8 to 12 inches from the speaker’s mouth. It essentially eliminates echoes, and strongly reduces background sounds. If it’s compatible with your equipment, it should be a winner.

    For a cheapo microphone, I was pleasantly surpised with how well this worked at picking up speakers who were a distance away. You may have to adjust the sensitivity of the recorder, because the sensitivity of this mic is significantly higher than the built-in stereo mic, and recording to ‘hot’ will result in garbled, distorted sound.

    The Olympus recorders seem to select sensitivity with labels like ‘dictate’ and ‘conference’, where ‘conference’ would normally be used in a distant recording situation but if the record bar hits the right side of the screen you want to set it to the lower sensitivity mode ‘dictate’. In any case, with this (mono) mic you should change your recording mode to Mono so you can get double the record time.

    I did an interview in a noisy restaurant and put the recorder on the table with the mic pointed straight up. The mic picked up both voices very well and cut down the background noise by at least 70%. The interview would have been impossible otherwise.
