Key Info

Olympus VP-10 (4GB) is a Portable Handheld Voice Recorder

Superb stereo recording. To securely capture your voice and the surrounding sound while the device is your shirt pocket, the VP-10 voice recorder features omni-directional stereo microphones. They reliably capture the sound from all directions thanks to two low-noise, high-quality microphones in the compact, slim body.

Clear conversations. Unique OLYMPUS audio recorder technology automatically identifies the difference between a voice and a rustling sound to effectively suppress the unwanted sound only. This means that the noise generated when recording from your shirt pocket is eliminated – achieving a low-noise, clear recording.

Instant operation. Simply slide down the REC switch – the voice recorder instantly starts recording even when the power is off. The switch is located on the top of the recorder, which is convenient when recording from your shirt pocket. You can blindly operate the VP-10 voice recorder so that you never miss a conversation again.

Full convenience. Thanks to the sleek design, you can simply clip the voice recorder to the inside of your shirt pocket and record without distracting the speaker. For added convenience, the VP-10 menu is easy to navigate through and the digital voice recorder can be instantly slotted into a PC for data transfer via the built-in USB connector.
