With two high-sensitivity microphones and 8GB of internal memory, the Olympus LS-11 PCM recorder is the star of the show when it comes to capturing and playing back crystal clear audio, whether for personal enjoyment, hobbies, or business purposes.

24-bit/96kHz linear PCM recording
Every note played by the band, every word spoken by the guest speaker, every bark and chirp heard in the local park, and every giggle from the kids in the backyard—the digital recording capabilities of the LS-11 help capture it all in rich, better-than-CD quality sound.

8GB of memory, 23 hours of battery life
When you combine the handheld recorder's 8GB of memory with its ultra-long battery life (up to 23 hours), you immediately see how the LS-11 benefits those who want hours effortless, worry-free audio recording. An additional 32GB of memory can be added with an SD or SDHC card (sold separately).

Multiple formats & features
With this personal audio recorder, you can do stereo or mono recording in WAV, MP3 or WMA formats, fine tune your recording with an LCD-displayed level meter, edit the audio files, or use an auto-record function that activates (and shuts off) the LS-11 at preset levels.

Pure Bliss

By Chris M.

from Medford, Ma.

I just bought this unit a week ago and it simply is nothing short of awesome. Ease of use, the clarity and selection of recording options make this one of the best purchases I've ever made for gear. Can't say enough good about it, and have nothing negative to say, although it would of been nice to have the plug in adapter come with it. The battery life seems long running so I can easily overlook that aspect. All in all, an exceptional recorder and I couldn't be happier. Pure Bliss

Sooo easy to use

By Joe

from Dallas, Texas

Simplicity and features, that's how I'd sum up my review. I've used older models in the past and it's a great upgrade. I can hear the improved quality instantly. Honestly, I can't think of anything that's missing in terms of features. I mainly use it for vocal brainstorming while away from the studio, the slender profile helps.

Microphones work great for capturing conference room discussions

By Bob Kaiser

from Boise, Idaho

I'm using the LS-11 to record work related discussions, similar to a journalist or podcaster, and the LS-11 microphones pickup everyone voices loud and clear. When researching digital recorders, I found this audio review that records conversations in many different location types; busy restaurant, grocery store, standing next to a moving train, etc. Check it out.
