The ME-52W plugs directly into your digital recorder's 3.5mm microphone jack for uni-directional recording in high-noise environments. It will cut down on much of the background noise and result in a more accurate transcription. It also comes with windscreen cover, a tie-clip and 3.3ft extension cord.
Great clip-on microphone
This review is from: Olympus ME-52W Detachable Microphone
Pros: Budget gamers and microphone enthusiasts, look no further. This microphone works really well, a lot better than I was expecting. There is little to no static in the background and you can hear yourself with clarity. The alligator clips have a great clamp and won't be falling off your shirt or whatever you plan to clamp it on anytime soon. This microphone also has the ability to be pointed in any direction you choose, you just have to use your head a little and adjust the microphone in all 3 dimensions to get it the way you want.
Cons: 3 problems that I had with this microphone: 1) the windscreen covering is loose and you can easily lose it if you're not careful, 2) the cord is somewhat short if you plan to connect it from the back of a desktop, and 3) the microphone can easily pick up any sound from about 10 feet away (pro/con depending on how you look at it)
