Very Decent, Affordable Voice Recorders. Similar to S711 and S702. Good Sound, Quality & Recording. Reliable, Popular... Great!

  • Summary: The Olympus Pearlcorder S713 is a nice model, especially for the price ~ A mid level/middle of the road Voice Recorder. Not the absolute best, far from the worst. I also disagree with 1 star and think that is way too harsh.

Disappointing for sure

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: The tape recorder did a poor job with picking up sound. The sound on the microcassette recorder was muffled and didn't do a good job picking sounds in a classroom, especially if the speaker is using a microphone. If you are looking for a top of the line recorder, I strongly recommend going with Sony

Best Microcassette Recorder I've Found So Far

Gary, Amazon
10 January 2010
  • Summary: I've owned half-a-dozen microcassette recorders over the years and the S713 is the best one I've used so far. Playback quality is excellent (for voice recording). Very clear. No noticeable tape hiss from the electronic components (which is a real problem with tape recorders in general).

  • Summary: I've had an Olympus Pearlcorder S713 for several years now. It has many features hard to find on new recorders. It has red LED to signal recording, a 3-digit tape counter, jacks for external headphone and microphone, auto stops at end of tape.

Don't purchase!!

M. Gordon, Amazon
1 January 2010
  • Summary: I am a writer and I decided to get a new micro recorder for work. I prefer tapes to digital so I went with the Olympus pearlcorder. I used the product, everything recorded fine and clear. However, my headphones don't fit in the headphone jack!

Love this cassette recorder

  • Summary: I just went to radio shack to pick up the 3/32 adapter to fit the headphone jacks i use with my s713. A little bulky but didn't want to buy a separate jack for the cassette recorder itself. Love this cassette recorder.

Playback is faster than recording

J. Carter, Amazon
16 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought this unit for taking notes that would be transcribed later, replacing an ancient branded Radio Shack microcassette recorder that has problems with Cue/Review functions but works fine otherwise. After I received the "Pearlcorder," I installed fresh Duracell batteries and tried it out.

good machine

R. Atkinson, Amazon
5 December 2009
  • Summary: The workers in my office are really used to this machine, so its the only kind I buy. I really like that you can turn off the feature that only plays when you talk, because when that was used it cut off words. This one also has a battery indicator light which is real nice.
