WS-852 Digital Voice Recorder for Business and Study

Everyday recorder for use in a wide variety of situations.

The WS series established for its clear audio quality and superb operability has been improved.

The new WS-852 features a new Intelligent Auto Mode, which is perfect for when there is a distance between the speakers and recorder, such as in large meeting rooms.

The recorder optimises the recording level regardless of whether the audio source is near or far, making it possible to record audio that is easy to listen to.

Simple Mode has been added to the menu for easy, intuitive controls that are perfect for beginners.

The new WS series recorders can be used in a wide range of situations, from students to business users.

High quality recording

With the ease of use found in all WS series recorders, this model achieves a highly realistic stereo feeling thanks to the two low noise, high sensitivity microphones.

The new Intelligent Auto Mode provides automatic sensitivity adjustment, and a Low-cut filter removes unnecessary noise from your recordings.

Superb stereo feeling with True Stereo Microphones

Two low-noise directional microphones positioned at a 90° layout enable you to create high quality recordings with a realistic stereo feeling.

This feature ensures that you capturethe sense of direction and distance of the speakers in the recording which is useful for meetings, lectures or trainingpresentations.


Automatic sensitivity adjustment with Intelligent Auto Mode

The new Intelligent Auto Mode function automatically adjusts the microphone sensitivity according to the input level.

For example, when you record the voice of a person far away in a large meeting room, the input level tends to be lower.

In this case, the recorder automatically raises the sensitivity of the microphone making them easier to hear.

Alternatively, when you record in a smaller meeting room with only a few people, the sensitivityis automatically lowered, so that the voice of the speakers close by do not sound too loud.

In this way, the function automatically keeps track of the input level and simultaneously adjusts the recording level so that it alwaysrecords in the best quality.

This ensures that the recording remains consistent by not having a speaker’s voice tooquiet or too loud. To set this function, simply select "Auto" as the recording level from the menu.

  • *If you select "Conference" for the recording scene while in Simple Mode, Intelligent Auto Mode is activated.

When low, the sensitivity is raised

When high, the sensitivity is lowered

Low-cut filter eliminates extraneous noise

During recording, the low-cut filteris used to cut the sound at frequencies of 300 Hz and lower during the recording process.

Typical examples of these lower frequencies include air conditioner noise, projector fan noise, and even wind noise while outside.

By cutting the lower frequency duringrecording your audio is natural sounding and free of background noise and distortion during playback.

Playback functions

Featuring an array of playback features to accommodate your needs, such the Voice Filter to clarify andenhance voice within recordings.

Voice Filtering Function to More Clearly Emphasise Voice

Change the playback speed without changing the pitch"Fast/ Slow playback"

With fast or slow playback, the speed change is processed digitally, thus the pitch is not altered resultingin the voice remaining as recorded.

The playback speed can be adjusted between a range of ×0.5 (slowest) and ×2 (fastest).

The ability to change the playback speed is particularly useful when you want to quickly check meeting recordings, or when recordings need to be listened to repeatedly such as with language study.

The playback speed settings are retained even when the recorder power is off, making it convenient to resume.
