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.
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.
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 this cassette player for over a year now. It still works very well, and I've used it often. Good features and sound quality. I did buy an adapter so that I could listen to it with earbuds. Unfortunately, the cassette player is designed to play through only ONE earbud, the left one.
Summary: This little recorder would work well for a lot of purposes, but I needed it for a situation where I couldn't just lay it out in front of the speaker -- nothing clandestine! Just too distracting! Anyway, it was difficult to get a good clear recording in these circumstances.
Summary: I've had voice mail for years, and continued to re-save many messsages from people I love, some of whom are no longer with us. The news that all these messages would evaporate with a new voicemail system was very distressing, and I didn't want a digital recorder which also could eventually lose what...
Summary: The Olympus 141357 is a great little cassette recorder. I am a newspaper journalist and sound quality and sensitivity is important in doing interviews, both in person and by telephone, with the addition of a telephone mic. I'd rate this product as five star.
