Voice Recorder for Interviews

There was a time when I interviewed several people about photographers’ websites (another time, another story) and used my iPhone 6S with a Sennheiser ClipMic digital microphone (lightning connector). It worked pretty well under the right conditions but the software is clunky and perhaps better suited for someone who much more well-versed in audio.

Sony UX560 Stereo Digital Voice Recorder

I wanted an easier recorder. So, after some research, I decided to go with a small voice recorder that was under $100: the Sony UX560 Stereo Digital Voice Recorder.

Wirecutter recommended this voice recorder for students who wanted to record lectures and based additional reviews on Amazon, I decided to go for it.

It worked great and I highly recommend getting one. Be sure to get a case and a microSD card. Eventually, I hope to purchase a microphone to attach to the recorder but for the moment, the recorder works great as is. It does capture some ambient noise so ideally, future interviews will take place in a quiet location.


My friend Andrea pointed me to Rev for transcriptions and overall I’ve been impressed by their professionalism, accuracy and turn-around. It beats having to DIY. This time, I was fortunate because our teammate, Mackenzie, is a transcription goddess.
