(Archived) Voice Notes on Iphone sound bad

Recommended Posts

I really like the voice notes option on the Iphone. It is a very useful feature but it sounds terrible. All S-sounds sound like you have a lisp, couldn't that be improved a little bit?

Thanks for the feedback. There are limits to the audio quality that we can get from the hardware and software on the iPhone, but we're considering alternative audio encoding standards that may improve quality for voice-only recordings.

I am using an application for recording audio on the Iphone called ITalk and it has excellent sound quality. It records in .aiff format though so the files are pretty big. But what it basically means is that the hardware of the Iphone is capable of recording and playing audio in a very good quality.

Yes, our first attempts used some of these less efficient encodings, which could easily fill up your Free account's monthly upload limit after a few minutes of recording. We switched to a more efficient compression scheme, but are still investigating other options.

Thanks

I'll have to second this... both the size of the files and the quality, too much loss with EN. My idea is to not use Evernote for audio as for now, and perhaps add files recorded with iTalk or Voice Memos later on. Any improvements here are most welcome ;)

The Apple-included Voice Memos app sounds surprisingly good. Evernote's voice recording, on the other hand, sounds terrible.

Hi, Dave Engberg from Evernote:

It's almost three years since your post and EN hasn't improved the audio recording quality on the iPhone?

Is the improvement planned at all?

Please let us know.

Thanks!

adding a vote for improved sound quality from iphone voice notes - difficult to understand them, using speechpad now until this is improved - thanks!
