recorder to capture whispers and mumbles
I'm presently researching digital voice recorders and some Sennheiser clip-on mics to capture whispers and mumbles throughout the day. Ideally, I want capabilities to send to voicemail or a more competent service for transcription to text.
First, I need to narrow down product options that are capable of clearly capturing whispers and mumbles from my voice amidst a full range of background noise.
This is what I am searching for suggestions or experiential reflections.
What range of frequencies are whispers and mumbles, and what equipment would best handle this?
The problem with low level voices or other sources is that if the level is lower than the ambient noises, there is no way to separate/isolate them.
The best solution is proximity. If you have a headset mic, very close to your mouth, the capture has better chance of getting more of your voice than the ambient noises.
Or you can by a recorder made exactly for transcripts.
Maybe something like this :
