Simple operation for both beginners and people accustomed to using recorders

Simple mode perfect for beginners.

Simple mode is perfect for beginners because it displays only necessary information in a large font and shows only key functions in the menu. Anyone will have no trouble setting it to this mode because the preferred mode can be selected when first activating the recorder. Once you become accustomed to using the digital recorder, you can switch to normal mode if you desire more detailed information and settings.

Clear high-quality sound

A large-diameter low-noise microphone for clear recording

The recorder is equipped with an omnidirectional, low noise monaural microphone. It reduces noise to enable clear recording. The recorder is also capable of recording low volume voices, making this recorder perfect for dictation.

Built in stand reduces noise

The stand at the back of the body reduces surface noise when the recorder is placed directly on a tabletop. The stand itself also acts as a cover for the USB port and microSD slot.

Low-cut filter eliminates extraneous noise

During recording, this filter cuts out background sounds such as air conditioning, projector fan noise, and the sound of wind outside. The filter can be turned on or off so you can decide whether to use it depending on your recording preference.
