Excellent As Always


from Cleveland, OH  -  Experienced

When I first found the predecessor of this product, the Olympus TP-7 Telephone Pick-up, I was highly skeptical that it would work. Nevertheless, it did. Indeed, it worked beautifully! I don't know if it would have worked as well on another brand of digital voice recorder, but it got me through some telephone interviews where the connection itself was lousy and was almost incomprehensible because of the accents of the interview subjects. I got the cleanest, clearest sound I could have ever hoped to get. Therefore, when my kit was stolen, I did not hesitate to buy the Olympus TP-8 and I'm glad I did.


Terrific item


from Georgia  -  Newspaper Reporter

I write for a newspaper, so this product is invaluable in recording telephone interviews. No more bending my neck over to hold the phone while I frantically type in notes. I couldn't work without it!


Great product, good price


from Clarkesville, Georgia

I am a newspaper reporter, so I will use this to record telephone interviews. It is absolutely invaluable for that. It records very clear conversations that I can play back on my computer. This is my second one, and the only problem I had with the first one is the ear piece came detached from the plastic casing holding the wires. It still worked, but the wires are so tiny, I feared they'd break at any moment. So I replaced it. This price was much better than the only brick-and-mortar store selling them, and they have free delivery!

Questions about this item:

Shopper  what part of telephone receiver do we attach the telephone pickup?
RICHARD C  The earpiece does not attach to a phone, it inserts into your ear like a headphone, then you put the phone up to your ear. This makes it possible to record a conversation with a landline or cell phone. It records both sides of the conversation and works very well. One precaution, you must keep the phone on whichever ear contains the TP-8 during the conversation, if you put the phone to the opposite ear it will no longer record the conversation. If you plan to take notes while recording be sure to place it in the ear opposite your writing hand so you can hold the phone with your off hand while keeping your writing hand free.
