Discover our range of SONY Dictaphones
Sony dictaphones are high-performance voice recorders designed for a range of uses. While many of us make do with the voice memos app on our smartphones, phone recordings don't always deliver - depending on the kind of audio you want to capture, a digital dictaphone could make life much easier.
Our Sony dictaphone range offers several advantages over smartphone audio recording. There's more flexibility while you record - you're able to stop and restart a recording without creating a new file, can review, insert additional, and delete unnecessary recordings.
And the microphone on your phone is designed to pick up sounds close to the mic only, not background noise. Dictaphone mics pick up much more, making them ideal for placing unobtrusively on a table for an interview, or on the floor of your bedroom while you work through some musical ideas. The built-in microphone picks up your voice perfectly well whether you're talking into it or not.
The best Sony dictaphones combine easy portability, long battery life and large memory capacities. Top models in the current range, like the Sony ICD-PX470 Digital Voice Recorder, give you 4 GB of internal memory, letting you capture up to 59 hours and 35 minutes of audio in MP3 at 128 Kbps. Slot in a microSD card and you can expand your storage to 32 GB, upping your recording hours to 536.
