I'm not sure what the model number is on them. They're not the in-ear microphones though; they clip on.

I was a little farther away from the sony mic, because if you hold it
too close you get popping p's. Even at that, the sound professionals
are more sensitive. I find I need to use them in dictation mode
consistently and I get good results, whereas the sony mic might work
better in conference mode. I agree that the Olympus ds-2 and the sound
professionals make a wonderful combination. It's just too bad that it
doesn't have at least twice the memory. I'm planning to record my
son's piano recital tonight with the sound professionals, but will
have to record at 64 kbps just in case it lasts for over an hour.
Still with this combination I expect I'll get a good recording.

Hi Pam.

Good comparisons. I am curious to know how far you were from the first 2
microphones? The Sony sounded better than the internal mics, somewhat
crisper and clearer. The sound Professionals were the best by far in terms
of quality, but it did sound like you were a lot closer to those than the
other two, so your voice had a lot more presence. Personally, I thought
DS2 and Sound Professionals was a great combination, especially at that
price point which was under $200 for the whole setup. I wish Olympus had
given the WS200 andWS320 models the option to record at 128kbps.

Thanks for the comparison.

Since we've been talking about microphones and recorder comparisons, I
know why I didn't think of this before. I'll just give you the link to the
file I did comparing the three microphones using the Olympuss ds-2. Amy,
Sandra and Doug, this isn't the same file that I sent you all. I recorded
this one in a quieter environment so you could get a better idea if there
was any background noise made by the recorder. And since I can't hear any
glaring background noise if there is any, I really would be interested in
what you all think. Which microphone do you like the best, etc.

The link to the file is
