Olympus DP-211 2GB Simple Dictaphone. 4.7 5 9 9
easy to use Great, easyb to use and good sound when played back 17 April 2015
I bought this Dictaphone for my husband who loves it. It is easy to use and was good value for money. 12 March 2015
Very easy to use Bought for hubby for xmas, he finds it straightforward and very easy to use. Just above basic but it does what it says on the tin. He wanted it for work use to keep notes on a course and whilst on site visits to do job evaluations. You can pick it up and use straight away without having to read any instructions. Has not transferred anything to the computer yet as it has large memory. 23 January 2015
Does the job I required it for Bought this Dictaphone to record interviews for a Golf Club Magazine I produce. Wanted to get the memories of members and this Dictaphone was perfect for the job at a very good price 30 December 2014
Simple as it can be Simple to use for sighted people but like all modern dictaphones the displays are small and so is the size of the unit. 23 September 2014

Hi,

Yes, the Olympus DP-211 2GB Simple Dictaphone features a high sensitivity mode, which will pick up surrounding noise and not just close proximity noises.

Have a good day.
