Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound Quality We have bought these for business purposes when recording interviews. We originally used a prehistoric Olympus recorder the DS-2300 which was awful, it sounded like you were underwater. However, the WS-852 is a crystal clear recording and has really reduced transcription timings. It is also very easy to use the USB and save files. Brilliant recorder!
