Telephone Recordings

Mainstream Telephone Recordings

Here are some telephone recordings that we didn't create:


Our Telephone Recordings

B-series recordings were recorded using a pickup coil. Audacity was used to remove noise and to digitally amplify certain portions.
I-series recordings were recorded using Audacity WASAPI. Only the distant end (called party) was recorded (my voice was not).
Left-click to play, right-click to download (click Save Target/Link As). Audio may not play on mobile devices; use a computer.
Mirror links are backups of the primary Download links. The mirror links may not have player controls depending on file type.
We welcome your feedback! Please leave us a message by contacting us.

Warning: Primary download links will not work after 12/30/2018. Only the mirror links will work after that.
