Answer:
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.

Answer:
Hi,

I have looked at the instructional manual for you and the Olympus DP-211 2GB Simple Dictaphone cannot be connected to a telephone via a wire to record a telephone conversation. This records by moving the Dictaphone to the source and press record.

Thank you for using Question and Answer.

Is it suitable for university lectures?

1 month, 2 weeks ago
I'm wondering if this item would be suitable for recording university lectures? I'm unsure how close I would be able to get to my tutor, and she certainly wouldn't be speaking directly into the microphone. I would need the recording to be clear enough that I could take separate notes.

Thank you -
Jaz
