Olympus VN-6000


$40.00 Released August, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Long record time availability, enough for more than a year's worth of lectures. Battery goes a long time between changes. Can pick up a voice from anywhere in the room.

The Cons:Need to purchase stereo patch cables and software to record files onto a computer. No USB interface available to backup or transfer files.

The Olympus VN-6000 is a sleek, pocket-sized voice recorder built as a step up from the VN-5000. It includes double the memory (1GB), allowing users over 600 hours of continuous recording. And like its predecessor, it’s loaded with a plethora of advanced functionalities especially built for professionals trying to record lectures or interviews.

For instance, users can electronically index mark the beginning of a new file, slow-down or speed-up playback by 25-50%, and quickly view file locations, recording status, and battery life information on an included LCD screen. Included also is a variable control voice actuator, which extends recording time by only recording when the microphone senses actual sound—moments of silence are therefore not recorded. Additional features include four folders (100 files per), a time recording option (schedule start/end time), and alarm playback.
