We made these recordings using an Olympus WS-320M digital voice recorder. It has 1GB flash memory on board which gives it a whole mess of room to store files. It can hold about 277 hours of low-grade voice and about 50 hours of high-def. Also, it's an MP3 player, that sounds very good. If you're thinking of getting a small MP3 player, you should consider this and get yourself a high-quality digital voice recorder at the same time. It takes one AA battery (we use rechargeables) and plugs directly into your computer's USB port for instant file upload/download. Heck, that makes it a 1GB removable thumb drive also.

And the best thing about this little gadget? Not only does the unit come with binaural microphone support (via jack) to get true stereo sound, it also has one built right in. This is how the recordings above capture that richer sound quality, because it's true stereo. Anyway, I'm surprised this thing isn't more mainstream. It's terribly useful and only costs about $100.
