I am looking to record my daily speech from the moment I wake until the moment I sleep.

As such, I need a digital recording device that has good battery life, preferably rechargeable... Also, I will be using a speech to text program to create text logs of these my speech, so the quality has to be somewhat decent. A few mistakes are not a big deal.

I am looking to spend no more than $80 on the recording device and a lavalier microphone. I know some devices come with lav microphones... Does the quality of the mic on the recording device matter if I'm hooking up a quality microphone to it?


Here are some that I have found. Which of these would be best for this application? Do you have any other suggestions?

I fully intend to inform others of the microphone and the project. The goal is to gather data on my own vocabulary and repetition in my own speech patterns.

I don't want the mic to record anything further than 10 inches away (area around my face). It will be clearly displayed on the collar of my shirt. I would just prefer it to be somewhat discrete so that the data (words) that I gather will accurately reflect my natural speech patterns.

This is not commercial. I do appreciate your mentioning that, though. Believe it or not, I had not considered the legal issues that could come up.

So another thing I should mention is, the mic needs to be visible but preferably not obtrusive.
