Pablo aus B., 30.01.2019
I am very surprised that these recorders are not more popular. They are truly amazing! Incredible small and packed with features. Very easy to use and quite good sound. The size for me is really a huge plus, I can always have it with me and I don't even notice (it is more or less as big as half an Iphone 4). For doing field recording, the best I have encountered (I have already had the Zoom h4n and the Zoom h2, and for me the build quality of the Olympus is much higher)

Size matters
audiocan, 06.10.2018
If you are looking for an extra compact and good sounding hand recorder, look no further.
It's super small, has internal memory, great battery life, it can recharge a regular rechargeable AAA and has decent built in microphones.
Of course, don't except to record stunning quality quiet ambience or subtle foley, the mics are not quiet or sensitive enough for that, but it shines as a guerrilla pocket recorder that can handle medium or loud sounds properly.
Not a big fan of the interface, and it was difficult to find a proper case (in the end I created my own sleeve), but these are minor issues. It also can't function as an interface. I also have to mention that the preamp for an external mic is very lousy.
In the end, I would recommend this over Zoom H1 or Roland R-07 due to the form factor, recharging ability and the internal memory.

Great little recorder
ighighigh, 30.12.2018
I bought this as a recorder I could just keep in my pocket.
- It's got a metal body and feels well made. It sounds pretty great too.
- Bit of a shame that the gain is adjusted by increments set with buttons.
- In built pres have plugin power and sound pretty clean.
- Pretty impressed by the reach of frequency response with the in built mics. No 192kHz recording which is a shame as I'd like to use coil/contact mics with it that'll have content very high up the audio spectrum.
- Not much handling noise compared to my D100, but still a slight issue there.
- Charging and internal memory are great.
- I bought this before the Sony A10 came out. I would've had a look at that first. But I think this is a great sounding recorder and the metal body makes it feel solid and well made.

Great recorder
Goldcrest, 01.04.2018
This recorder is amazing for its size - and all off one AAA. Nicely goes in a top pocket , and easy to record with good quality sound from the one board mics. The adding of the wind jammer makes easy to use out doors.

The multitracker is a great tool for musicians of all levels. It really can be a ‘studio in a box’ replacing many of the components of a traditional studio.
