Voice Recorders have come a long way from the old analog recorders that required tapes or mini tapes to record (although some places still carry this outdated technology). Now that we're in the 21st century, we've got digital voice recorders, which record in high quality stereo sound. Even something that looks and functions as a regular fountain pen can actually be a voice recorder pen.
In addition to being a portable device that you can carry around to record whenever you need, these devices can also be disguised as ordinary objects, like the USB Flash Drive Voice Recorder - which also functions as a regular USB flash drive.
But these voice recorders aren't limited to just being portable audio recording devices, with many of these devices, you can even record phone calls! Simply connect the voice recorder between your telephone line and the wall outlet, and you can automatically record all of your incoming and outgoing phone calls.
Who is Using Voice and Audio Recorders:
- Students who want to keep detailed recordings of lectures and classes
- Employers who want to record phone calls for quality and training purposes
- Private Investigators looking to gather evidence
- Business executives who want to record sales meetings and presentations
- Anyone who wants to record audio to protect their home or business
Frequently Asked Questions about Voice Recorders:
Why are digital voice recorders so much better than analog ones?
Digital voice recorders record in higher quality, meaning much clearer recordings. They also allow for easy transfer to other devices (like computers) because the audio files are already in digital format, and do not need to be converted. Digital voice recorders also allow for a much greater amount of audio to be stored on a device. You can store years of audio data on an SD memory card that is a fraction of the size of mini analog tapes.
How can I play back the recordings?
Playing back the recording depends on the device. Some of the voice recorders have a built-in speaker or headphones jack that allow you to listen to your recordings wherever you go. Other devices like the USB Flash Drive Voice Recorder simply need to be plugged into your computer's USB port.
Can I save the recordings to my computer?
Absolutely. You can easily transfer recordings to your computer via either the included USB connection cable, or by removing the device's memory card (if applicable), and inserting that into your computer's card reader.
Are any of these voice recorders Macintosh compatible?
Yes. Just look for the "Macintosh compatible" line on the product page's specifications chart. Also, any of the recorders that use SD or Micro SD recordings (like the USB Digital Voice Audio and Telephone Call Recorder) can be used with a Mac, simply by inserting the card into your Mac's card reader.
