About Olympus ME-52

Digital voice recorders provide great solutions for voice recognition applications, however background noise will sometimes cause a problem.

The ME-52W plugs directly into your digital recorder's 3.5mm microphone jack for uni-directional recording in high-noise environments. It will cut down on much of the background noise and result in a more accurate transcription. It also comes with windscreen cover, a tie-clip and 3.3ft extension cord.

Note: When using with a recorder with a 2.5mm mic jack, purchase the PA-1 Plug Adapter.

Mic for Williams Sound Pocketalker Ultra

I bought it for my mom's Williams Sound Pocketalker Ultra personal amplifier. Because the mic input requirement on Pockertalker was not specified, I was hesitant at first if Olympus ME52 will work correctly. It turns out this mic fits and drives the mic input on the Pocketalker perfectly. It's unidirectional and has a better sensitivity (-40dB at 1KHz) compared to the original Pocketalker omni-directional (MIC 014) mic. Williams Sound MIC 014 sensitivity was not specified and guessing it's ar...

Thus the mic input on Pocketalker Ultra probably has electret condenser microphone bias with a nominal impedance of ~ 1.5KOhms and a 3.5mm plug-in power system capable of =>1.5V.

Works just as advertised

By

from New England

I bought this to facilitate using my digital voice recorder in taking "notes" while photographing old cemeteries. First time out, I clipped this to my lapel and hoped for the best! Although it did pick up background noise, I was quite near the road, so I wasn't surprised by that. However, it was still very easy to hear my voice clearly over any background noise. I was very pleased overall with the function of this item and would definitely recommend it.
