High quality stereo recording in all environments

In order to securely capture every sound and voice, the new VP-10 features Omni-directional stereo microphones which capture sound from all directions, even when recording from your pocket. The recorder includes low noise, high quality microphones in its compact slim body.

“Anti-Rustle” filter reduces surface friction while recording in your pocket

Olympus’ unique “Anti-Rustle” filter technology identifies the difference between voice and rustling sound by its characteristics, and effectively suppresses the noise only. This removes the rustling noise generated when operating the recorder from your shirt pocket - achieving a low-noise, clear recording.

Simple, instant operation with “One-Touch Recording”

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.

Excellent operability in a sleek, compact design

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.
