The WS-Series recognized for its clear audio quality and superb operability has been updated. The WS-852 features the new Intelligent Auto Mode which automatically adjusts the recording level to match the volume of the sound source.
The two directional microphones positioned at a 90° layout enable an authentic stereo experience. Regardless of where the person speaking is located you clearly capture the recording scene.
The Intelligent Auto Mode automatically adjusts the microphone sensitivity according to the volume of the sound source, this provides an even level of volume for the listener.
The Simple Mode supports beginners by having the recorder display only the necessary information in large font. It also limits the functions in the menu to those which are frequently used.
Save data easily and conveniently with the built-in USB connector.
The built-in stand on the back of the body is carefully designed to reduce surface noise.
By eliminating the lower and higher frequency ranges of a voice recording, the speakers’ voice is enhanced during playback.
With reduced power consumption, battery life is significantly improved. Users can rely on the recorder for over 1,000 hours of recording time.
Choose from one of seven recording scenes and your recorder will adjust to the optimal recording settings. Telephone Recording and Duplication Mode can be used in combination with optional accessories.
