BEWARE!!

Paul Cicchetti "George of the Jungle", Amazon
7 May 2013
  • Summary: BEWARE OF WHAT YOU ARE GETTING! I bought what was purported to be an "Olympus LS-10" off of the page that said "Olympus LS-10." I paid $325.44 with the shipping, to a company called "AudioBuys". What I got instead, was an Olympus LS-10S, which is a renamed LS-5, as sold in Europe. It has only 2 gigs of internal memory as opposed to 8 gigs for the LS-10, and is worth only half of what I paid, about $149.00, AND it came from a company called "Adorama," not "AudioBuys".

For what these sell for on eBay, no brainer.

  • Summary: Recommended to me by a field recording specialist. Sounds great, and is easy to navigate. Good memory options and battery life, as well. You'll want a tripod for it, as the handling noise is rather prominent when hand-held.

Better than expected

Art H., Amazon
19 November 2012
  • Summary: I didn't expect it to work as well as it did. I'm traveling in Mexico and, before leaving, I made it a last minute purchase intending to record live music wherever I might find it. It's easier to use than I might have imagined but doesn't seem to have separate channel recording capability. Still, for a pocket size device, it does a more than adequate to good job of recording music in a variety of settings from street-side to opera hall or open arena concert.

NIce quality recorder

sellikei, Ebay

  • Summary: I purchased the LS-10 mainly for recording my bands rehearsal sessions for an original project. The recorder is very easy to use and the instruction manual is very clear to understand. I did have a tuff time downloading the data to my lap top thought. I did finally get it to work and I could make copies to CD's but the initial process was tedious and frustrating until it worked for me.

Fantastic

Pablo Fregoso Diaz, Amazon

  • Summary: It's a great recorder, audio quality is amazing. The only thing people need to know before buying is that it needs a fast SD card, when I bought it I decided to buy it alongside th e sd card that amazon recommends but after a few recordings I noticed that they were stopping every 15 secs or so for a short period of time. I now bought a class 10 16GB SD card and have no problems.

  • Summary: I conduct interviews all over the world in various locations. This recorder has meet my needs perfectly. The sound quality is excellent and it is very easy to use. I do wish it had its own rechargeable battery, but quality batteries last a while before needing changed. Great recorder!

All in one recorder

Calon Lochridge "Frank", Amazon
26 May 2010
  • Summary: When I started shopping for digital recorders I really didn't know what I was looking for. I'm not a journalist so I wouldn't be doing a lot of transcription or interviews but I did want a recorder that would play voice back clearly so that I could use it to learn Korean. I am an amateaur musician but I still wanted a sound quality that wasn't sub-par.

Excellent field recorder: great sound quality for price and portability

rben, Amazon
7 May 2010
  • Summary: I've had the ls-10 for about 9 months and have used it a few times on field recording trips (internal mics) and a several times recording in doors (internal mics and homemade electret mics). The recording sound quality is much better than my minidisc recorder (all consumer level no pro) and the internal mics are much cleaner than any of my homemade electret mics (radio shack) (used with either plug-in power or homemade low-end component 9v mic preamp).
