Simple Mode makes use easy, even for beginners

Simple Mode is perfect for beginners, as it shows only the necessary information in a large font and only key functions in the menu. The first time the recorder is activated, users are asked to choose from either Normal Mode or Simple Mode, so initial set up is easy. Once you become accustomed to using the recorder, you can switch to normal mode should you desire more detailed information and settings.

Direct PC connection without a cable

The built-in USB connector can be easily deployed and stored using the slide lever. With this feature, you can connect directly to a computer without using a cable or a software. Not only can you save and share your recordings, the recorder can also be used as a USB memory device.

File searching is easy with the Calendar function

Search Screen

Audio files stored on the recorder are automatically organised by date. Because files are displayed in a calendar format, you can quickly find the file you are looking for by the date of recording. If you're looking for a voice recorder with good search features, this is the one for you.

The File Divide function makes it easier to handle longer recordings

Recordings of long meetings with multiple topics or audio files that are too big to send via email can be divided on the recorder without having to use a computer. This makes it easier to manage files according to the content, or divide files into a smaller size to send via email.

The built-in stand prevents noise during desktop recording

microSD card slot

Long battery life you can rely on when out and about

By developing low power consumption circuits, battery life of the recorder has been significantly increased. Users can rely on the recorder even when using it for long periods of time. The supplied AAA battery is rechargeable and can be charged via USB without being removed from the recorder, making it very convenient for everyday use. The recorder can also run on general purpose AAA batteries, so you never have to worry about running out of power when out and about.

  • Maximum recording time: Approx. 110 hrs. (when using alkaline batteries)
