Great for Music Rehearsals

Shellfish, Amazon
16 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought the Olympus DS-50 Digital Voice Recorder so I could record my music rehearsals. It works great. You can listen to your recorder through the built-in speaker. You can connect the unit directly to your computer and record songs off the computer in real time.

recording quality note

testmaster, Amazon
30 November 2008
  • Summary: The manual does not specify the most important quality difference between recording in STXQ mode versus STHQ. STXQ results in 128kbps WMA recording. STHQ results in 64kbps WMA recording. Both modes are 44.1KHz 16 bit.

Great little recorder

John, Amazon
15 October 2007
  • Summary: This little guy is SMALL, especially if you remove the detachable stereo mic on the top (has a perfectly fine mono one built in). I used it to record lectures at school and meetings at work and it has worked just fine for both.

I approve, but would you?

Annie Henwood, Amazon
15 October 2007
  • Summary: I love this recorder. It is complicated to work, but I don't disapprove. Anybody who is not technologically savvy would have difficulty using this recorder to its full potential. I really like the numerous options it has for recording.

A decent recorder

Xuedong Zhou, Amazon
15 October 2007
  • Summary: The purpose to buy this was for my son's violin lesson. He is 11 year old and tends to forget teacher's important points. A little bit pricey but it worth your money. I have been used it for about two months now and I love it. The record sound quality is pretty good.

definite BUY product, just don't tell the wife you spent so much for a recorder

Just_Shoppin, Amazon
15 October 2007
  • Summary: I never give 5 stars unless I'm blown away. After using a cheap digital recorder to record Choir practice and Sermon review. I decided to splurge and get a good recorder. This is one of the best recorder I have heard. Battery life is good, 16 hours on headset, (I fell asleep while listening).

Olympus Digital Voice Recorder DS-50

Nonny J, Amazon
15 October 2007
  • Summary: This digital recorder is accessible for visually impaired users, however, there's still a lot to memorize. 275 hours of recording time is misleading because it reflects recording time for the lowest sound quality; recording time drops SIGNIFICANTLY if you want higher quality sound.
