  • Excerpt: I use this for field recording, and capturing things on the fly. It has very low self noise which is pretty important for me, and the built in mics are quite nice. Friends who also use this device have reported it to be pretty rugged after many drops etc. So far Im very pleased with it.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Powerful, Versatile

  • Excerpt: Very easy to use in meetings with one hand or anywhere for that purpose. Love the 1-piece unit without any attachments on top for concealment. I bought this in hoping Sony doesn't pull their switch designs and/or closeouts.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Versatile
  • Cons: No case

Less customization for more money

  • Excerpt: Sony makes great audio and video products. But some product designs defy logic. The M10 is a great recorder. I do multi-camera video production. Together with a Marantz PMD661 I use some of Sony's $/@$ MP3 recorders in which I can specify what the file/folder name should be so that when I copy all the files to my project on hard drive I know which file came from where. very convenient and time-saving.
  • Pros: Excellent Sound, Long battery life
  • Cons: Difficult To Use, Unintuitive, Unintuitive Controls, Unnecessary Functions

Impressive Recorder

  • Excerpt: I am not an audio expert or musician, but I can see, feel and hear quality. This recorder is small, solidly constructed, easy to use and is excellent for wildlife and bird recording. I would have to think that it would be impressive for any type of audio recording. The microphones are sensitive and have a good reach and the frequency range, I would assume, would make it an excellent device for the study of (EVP)Electronic Voice Phenomena.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Powerful, Versatile, Wildlife And Birds

excellent portable recorder

  • Excerpt: I purchased this to replace a Sony PCM-D50 which had a mic failure after 3+ years of heavy use. Use cases are: •field recording•concert recording•direct/line-in recordingI am not using this with external mics as we have a different setup for that, so internal mic quality is a major point.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Battery life, Excellent Sound, Robust Memory Options

Superb Technology

  • Summary: Although I am not a audio professional, I have an eye and ear for quality and this device is very impressive. The build quality in the hand, and to the eye and ear, to me, is superb and the technology which supports it is an enjoyment to the thought process. Also, the omnidirectional microphones are very versatile for a wide range of recording projects.

Best sub $ recorder on the market.

Pruitt Hall, B&H Photo
9 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Fantastic little recorder that is just a superlative sum of its parts. Mostly intuitive interface, small size, surreal battery life (you have to use it to even believe it!) and, to me, it's biggest feature: a set of stereo Omni microphones that are genuinely good, good. The pre amp for the mics is incredibly low noise and the soundfield produced just has to be heard to be appreciated.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound
  • Cons: None

Great alternative to Zoom

TABarnhart, B&H Photo
24 April 2014
  • Excerpt: When I purchased my PCM-M10 3 years ago, it was over $100 less than the Zoom H4N. Turns out, money well-saved. I've used this in multiple settings: set on a table top, plugged into high-end sound systems, at the receiving end of wireless lav systems. attached to wired lavs, plugged into those event speakers that have outputs. In every case, I've gotten great results. The unit is solid. Easy to use. Easy to transfer the files to my Mac.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Versatile
  • Cons: Playback Functions Could, Playback Is Meh

tiny Handheld Studio!

Anas, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: This device exceeded my expectations, after 1 month of comparing devices, zoom H4N was on the top of the list, but looking forward more portability and lower noise floor and higher build and mics quality and battery life, and after eliminating the need for XLR inputs, I've decided to go for Sony PCM-M10 I can conceder it as a small portable studio with high fidelity stereo mics very clear voice and sound reproduction very low noise floor and long battery live do yourself...
