Olympus LS-P1 4GB High Resolution Bluetooth Linear PCM 24-Bit 96 kHz Audio Recorder FEATURES

Directional stereo microphone

Get the most advanced microphones to date with the Olympus LS-P1 digital audio recorder: their 90° construction provides a great stereo feel. What's more, the high quality of their build means you'll enjoy clear sound with low noise. All of this and more is packed in a super-small body that gives you outstanding recordings - from music to meetings.

High-quality amplifier circuits

Enjoy the most accurate stereo sound possible without any signal deterioration thanks to the high-quality microphone amplifier. It uses an advanced amplifier circuit to suppress interference - for original stereo audio recording from a compact device. Olympus engineers have also gone even further to develop a new codec, so you now have even clearer sound quality with less noise during AD/DA music conversion.

Metal body, compact design

The powerful technology on the inside is encased in a sleek metal body on the outside - making the stylishly compact LS-P1 a PCM recorder that you'll enjoy using with every press of a button, for every song or session. Because it's so robust and cutting-edge, you'll want to take this pocket-sized audio recorder with you wherever you go - especially also thanks to Direct USB capability for easy data storage and transfer.

24-bit 96kHz linear PCM recording

The LS-P1 supports linear PCM recording at rates of up to 24 bits and sampling frequencies as high as 96kHz - far surpassing the 44.1kHz/16 bits of CD-quality audio. When you select this bit rate and sampling frequency, you can readily make a CD of your own recordings.

Style meets full functionality

With the LS-P1 pocket-sized PCM recorder, you have a stylish recording device that doesn't compromise on either high quality or the clear recording of all your songs - no matter what their genre.

Manual recording level

By fine-tuning the recording level to match the volume of the audio source, you can capture high-quality recordings that make the most of the dynamic range. Fine level control is aided by the PEAK display lamps and the lever meter on the LCD display.

Low-cut filter

When the low-cut filter is set to cut frequencies below 300Hz, it can eliminate background noises such as air conditioners or projectors. When switched to 100Hz, these noises are reduced, while the audio recorder continues to capture lower frequency sound.

Tripod mount adapter

This PCM recorder may be compact, but you still have the option of using a sturdy tripod, thanks to the supplied tripod mount adapter. Simply screw in onto the socket built into the audio recorder and then attach to a tripod for a more professional recording setup for your session.


When you are recording your music using the manual recording level, you also have the option of using the Limiter function, which is effective for preventing unwanted sound clipping. If the input level surpasses the maximum recording level, the Limiter function compresses the peak level. So you can capture your songs exactly as you like, with the clear quality you want.

Calendar search

With this handy function, your saved audio files are automatically marked with the date and displayed in the calendar format. This makes it quick and easy for you to search for files. Plus, a dedicated calendar button on the PCM recorder allows for immediate viewing.

Intelligent auto mode

To make listening to your audio recordings more comfortable, Intelligent Auto Mode automatically adjusts the recording level to match the volume of the sound source. When someone is talking very loudly, the recorder reduces the input level, and for soft voices the recorder increases the input level - to always provide an even level of volume.

Zoom microphone

The latest directional quality control technologies narrow the directionality of the microphone, and increasing the recording level enables you to zoom into the sound source you want to record. Unleash the power of proximity recording in noisy environments, or when recording from a distance.

Voice Balancer

The Voice Balancer feature makes softer voices louder while keeping louder voices below a given level, ensuring that playback is clear and consistent. It simultaneously eliminates the low and high frequency ranges of a voice recording to enhance the speaker's voice even further.

Noise Cancel

The Noise Cancel function ensures clear quality when you want to play back your songs, or any other voice recording. That's because it powerfully reduces unwanted continuous background noise while you are recording, such as that caused by busy environments.

Perfectly matched with the Olympus E-M5 Mark II 

Movie meets sound with the combination of high definition 1080p video from the Olympus E-M5 Mark II mirrorless camera and high resolution audio from the Olympus LS-P1. Together they are the perfect pair - just place the LS-P1 onto the hotshoe, connect via the microphone input on your camera, and start recording.

The built-in multiple editing options will help you to record and process the outstanding audio, worthy of the video you have created.

With the Olympus LS-P1, it is simple to get a superb sound; just connect the camera via the microphone socket to the audio out of the recorder, turn it on, and hit record.

For further enhanced recording on the LS-P1, the Olympus ME31 Compact Gun Microphone will minimise noise deflection and improve flexibility for recording at a greater distance.
