This do-it-all audio recorder packs a ton of features into a diminutive, 115 x 24 x 11 mm frame. It only takes about an hour and a half to fully charge, and can still record while charging. It can write files to WAV or MP3 format, with a bitrate as high as 1,535 kbps, or as compact as 256 kbps. Playback WAV, MP3, or WMA files either using the integrated speaker, or through the headphone jack: meaning this doubles as a way to listen to music, podcasts, or reviewing lectures before an exam.
Its 8GB of built-in flash memory gives you plenty of space, and its voice activated recording makes it perfect for documenting meetings, taking voice notes while driving, or any other recording situation. You can even set it to record over specific times, or record via a line in instead of using the integrated microphone.
So if you’re looking for a versatile voice recorder that won’t demolish your budget, this voice activated recorder has the features you need, at a price you can afford.
