Hello, I’m a journalist with a newspaper and I do a lot of phone interviews on my cell phone that I sometimes need to record.

I need to have a way of using a hands free headset and microphone, so I can type, that also allows the phone to simultaneously be in speaker mode so I can record the audio on my digital recorder.

I have no idea how to do this, and I’ve spent years trying to find products that would enable this, and I don’t know what to do. Help!

Currently my method of recording cell phone interviews had been to put the phone on speakerphone and then record using an Olympus digital recorder. This has been problematic because I’ve had to change the settings on the recorder to not pick up feedback from the cell phone, and that creates other issues when I need the Recorder to record natural sound at a meeting or something, also I have to speak into the phone so I know the person being interviewed can hear me, which means I can’t comfortably have my hands free.

Help!

I have an iphone6s the trick is I want to be hands free to type but still have the microphone near my mouth, like a headset so the person on the other end will hear me, while also simultaneously recording the interview.
