About the Sony ICD-TX50

The Sony ICD-TX50 Digital Flash Voice Recorder is a stereo voice and music recorder as well as a high quality player and storage device. In fact, it's hard to believe that a 1.75 oz piece of audio gear measuring a little over 4" packs such an amazing amount of technology. Convenience, easy access to data and clean, accurate recording ability drive the design of the ICD-TX50.

The ICD-TX50 boasts a highly visible, LED display. The 4 GB flash drive has enough capacity for up to 178 hours of voice recording and if that's not enough, there's a microSD card slot for further expansion. The ICD-TX50 has a built-in stereo microphone. You can listen to your recordings via the built-in speaker and of course, there's a headphone jack as well.

The ICD-TX50 has 5 recording modes from uncompressed stereo to compressed mono that easily stores data in one of one of 5 organizational folders, which can be personalized with your own names. The Easy Search function rewinds or fast forwards in short increments to make location of a segment simple and you can place up to 98 track marks on a recorded file to facilitate jumping to an exact passage.

Sound quality is prioritized using several technologies aimed at yielding a clean signal. Intelligent Noise Cut reduces ambient noise and a Hi/Med/Lo mic switch sets the recorder for lectures or dictation. The Noise Damper isolates the microphone elements from desk noise during recording. And speaking of desks, the convenient pocket clip which is an integral part of the design does double duty as a recording stand for tabletop use. The ICD-TX50 is Mac and PC compatible. It's powered by a built-in rechargeable battery with a 24 hour run time.
