Peripherals-Voice Recorder Benjie M23

First of all, a few words about the company Benjie. The brand is relatively young – founded the company in 2009, from 2014, and even today is known under the name of Shenzhen Benjie Technology Co. Main lines of audio products: Hi-Fi and MP3 players, sports earphone and digital voice recorders. The company starts the production each year, about 10-15 new gadgets, constantly expanding and renewing so the line of models.
In General, Benjie is young and brand development, and support of a company that makes exactly the quality and modernity of its gadgets.
On the Russian market, this brand is still presented a bit, so today in an assessment of one of the “first signs”, the stereo recorder-recording BENJIE M23.

Unpack

The writer comes to compact cardboard box, such as the packaging of a smartphone. On the face glittering, painted the image of his own tape recorder and then Benjie. On the back of the box-a brief summary of the main functions, are marked the data about the manufacturer and the importer.
Sidebar duplicate functions icon and some settings of the device. Interestingly, in the box to specify the range of recording up to 20 metres, while the official site and other sources – 10 to 15 metres.
Externally, the recorder box looks very good and expensive, with print quality and tight картону as well as проработанному single project. Voice recorder would look good as a gift.
Well, вскроем, разрезав gray box stickers. It’s interesting that their marriage is not so simple – the easier it is to cut. If RIP-it becomes clear that the dual-layer adhesive and drilled, and the inner layer remains in the box clearly indicating that they already have. Quite effective protection against excess of intermediaries, who are striving to drag out of the box, which is bad cable or cellphoneexplorer members (which, incidentally, are available in the kit).
Open the box, we see the own voice recorder on the substrate, contained in security or transport module. Around the elastic frame of a material like пенополистерола, for shock protection. Вытаскиваем the recorder from a package, and we see that he at the same обклеен and protective films.
Found in the box following equipment:

  • the recorder M23
    • headset
    • meters microUSB cable
    • user’s manual

Package contents very good, suddenly went to see here the headphones. It is not sufficient unless тряпочки Microfiber to clean the device – because it is made of metal, which gathers fingerprints.

The appearance

Metal casing of an alloy of zinc causes the writer apparently respectable, expensive device. Looks very good voice recorder. Also, this box adds монолитности-in hand, he felt бруском metal solid.
On the front there is the speaker Grill and the record button (record and play/pause). Above is a small informational display by cellphoneexplorer. The exhibition has enough brightness, which is adjusted in the settings, and is usually read in the Sun.
Ago simply smooth steel plate, which cast enters one side of the face. With this, the vision of a voice recorder somewhat resembles the гармошку.
In fact, the body is composed of two metal plates-back with rib side, concealed off the front cover plate.
Take a closer look to the side of the face. On the right side: on the slider, has two positions; the “menu” button, and a Micro SD card slot.
Is supported up to 32 GB amount, which will cause the total amount of device memory up to 40 GB, which, in the normal mode of operation, even more than enough.
On the left we see the configuration of the volume button, toggle buttons and rewind (and at the same time), and the microUSB connector for charging and connecting the recorder to your pc.
All the side buttons, as well as a slider for inclusion, not stay and have a depression. A little sum-in this respect the record button on the front panel – both performed by a single piece, and she walks on tracks of holes, that’s not very nice.
In the first end is 3.5 input aux ″, and two microphones into corners – according to the information on the official website, omni-directional microphones.
Complete headphones have straight plug, which may not be very convenient. However, it should be noted a good sound quality, the sound is quite satisfying, and is suitable for listening to lectures, interviews and т. п. Also comes to your headset has a couple interchangeable embouchure, and is superfluous.

Functional menu definition

Пробежимся writer’s resource and menu items.
The inclusion is done the slider to the left. If you leave it on, the recorder will be possible to “wake up” enough to 3 seconds by pressing the playbutton. The same click to send the machine to sleep. If you leave the recorder for a long time in the off mode, it is better to translate the slider to “off”.
The recorder has a FM radiofunction. As the aerial act connected the headphones. Some radio stations you can get, but there’s always a strong noise and therefore radio here soon “for the brand,” what really works for the function.
The M23 recorder is capable of reading txt files in utf-8. To do that, you have an item in the menu-“electronic book”. When you enter the menu of memory is examined in search of files with the .txt extension, and found are displayed in list form. Has a function of “reproduction” file – slow flip.
In the menu “Registration” there are a number of supplements voice recorder.

  • Noise reduction, on/off. In fact, on and off the cancellation of noise during recording. To test this function, a little later, during the recording.
    • Write error. Lets you choose the format of the saved file in case of mistake in PCM or MP3 or recording.
    • Bitrate. The recording quality varies within 4 levels-512, 768, 1024 and 1536 kb/с.
    • Recording Sensitivity. You can also adjust the sensitivity of the microphone-we have 8 degrees, zero to level 7. High sensitivity advantageous place to record from a great distance, in a relatively low interior noise level. If the noise around a lot, the easier it will be to the contrary, put the medium sensitivity and below and write with as much within walking distance.

In the General Settings menu you can put the date and time, timer to switch off the recorder (gadget off anyway), to expose the desired screen brightness and language (represented 28). Also here a point to reset to factory settings, information about shell programming, and the menu “format the device file system cleanup.
The writer Benjie M23 can be used as a music player, the sound is broadcast pure, is not overloaded frequency spectra and music to listen to comfortable. Of course, the high level of sound is not here, because this is the first voice recorder. Don’t miss an equalizer, settings, make it easier to change tracks and playlists. But, to hear recorded lectures and music, when you get tired of listening to the lecture,-comes to a complete stop.
A few words about the autonomy. This recorder is equipped with a 3.7 V 260 mah battery. The manufacturer claims the average maximum time of recording up to 20 hours, with low bit rate, this number approaches of 30 hours. The records that I made just a few hours, during this time, charging indication has not changed.
The battery has been tested in playing music through external speakers at full volume. End the writer worked with full charge in about 3 hours and 20 minutes, indicated on 4 hours, so that the information from the manufacturer on the autonomy of the writer seems quite plausible.

Write test

Announced on the website of the manufacturer write distance – up to 10 to 15 metres. We performed a series of auditions in different distances in low interior noise level, when the шумоподавлении and, when it does not. Recording formats supported by voice recorder-MP3 and WAV, the write test were made in WAV format.
The noise reduction is enabled, the recording sensitivity-5 internship. Voice recording.
With 3 meters.
With 6 meters.
With 10 meters.
Noise reduction off, recording sensitivity-5 internship. Voice recording.
With 3 meters.
With 6 meters.
With 10 meters.
Write stereo microphone at great distances well, clearly, without excess noise, even when the noise reduction function.
The audible difference, especially if you listen to the recording in large volume audible background несильное sizzle. When the same шумоподавлении Squeak disappears, but there is a sense of a natural voice. Therefore, strive to achieve maximum quality, best record, and after processing the audio record, editors.
For more information illustrate the quality and the range of writing, here is an example of recording the guitar, at a distance of 1 meter.

Experience and results

The feeling of working with the recorder only positive-what is comfortable, Nice in the hand. Thanks, сдержанному design he would look good in any situation. In addition, the unit is very compact, even for a digital voice recorder, and weighs only 61 grams. For purposes of illustration, below a picture of M23 near 5 ″ for your smartphone.
When he does, the dual channel input provides high quality, microphones and here is very sensitive, and effectively record the sound, even with the distance of 10 meters (when the maximum sensitivity of acceptable quality will at a distance of 15 metres).
In my opinion, the writer M23 BENJIE company today is competitive on the market. The amount of just over 2000 you win, if not hi-fi quality (as mentioned in the description of the device), is worthy of recording level and a set of functions. So that the microphone has two recording channels-it’s unusual for this price category. Here, for a modest sum receive headphones in the package, and besides a good functional, with voice recorder and have almost премиумный appearance. I can definitely recommend the purchase, for those who, in the first place need a high quality voice recorder of voice recording, and would like to have the opportunity to produce recording quality with the distance.
