I have done quite a few interviews and videos over the years and always had very little issues with my little Sony mp3 voice recorder, and while the sound was good, it was not great either. After my last interview and the lack of being able to adjust sound levels on my trusty old mp3 recorder, I finally decided to step up my game. Many people seem to swear by the Zoom H1 and after some digging, I came across the Tascam DR-05. wow! I’m impressed by its well-though-out design, functionality and audio quality!
get it from amazon:
TASCAM DR-05EB Portable Digital Recorder
The Special Edition came with a 2GB Micro SD card and earbuds with a microphone (which I will use from now on with my, since I’ve lost its original headset and I dislike the Beats urBeats In-Ear Headphones (Black) for voice calls.)
user comment: This is a much better audio recorder compared to the Zoom H1 for the money IMO. The overall build and ease of use of the Tascam DR-05 is superior…
