The Sony ICDBX112 Digital Voice Recorder has 2GB of internal flash memory, providing sufficient storage capacity for more than 500 hours of MP3 audio recordings at 8 kbps. Even at 192 kbps, the ICDBX112 can yield over 22 hours of high-quality MP3 recordings. Between the four MP3 recording rates, mic flexibility, extensive features and affordability - the ICDBX112 is a fitting digital voice recorder for chronicling class lectures, capturing live music, documenting board meetings and even just recording daily reminders and preserving oral to-do-lists.
Designed for straightforward, manageable voice and audio recordings, the ICDBX112 features a built-in monaural microphone, outfitted with Hi/Lo gain sensitivity control. It also supports Voice Operated Recording (VOR). Advantageous and truly handy, VOR allows you to audibly signal the start of a recording without ever pushing the record button. It's invaluable if you need to place the recorder out of reach or maybe across a room. It's also beneficial for eliminating the inevitable fumbling sounds that are recorded as you lift and set down a live microphone.
Conducive to quick and easy operation, the ICDBX112's LCD display is backlit and the navigation keys make it simple to move through the folders, functions and menus. Also designed for simplicity, the tactile REC & Play buttons are over-sized and centrally located on the recorder (similar to a mobile phone). The LCD screen can display the recording's date and time, as well as the remaining and elapsed time. It also works this way in playback mode. Easing any confusion as to what modes, functions and settings you're using at any point, the ICDBX112 is also equipped with revealing operational LED indicators to identify what's in use.
With a variety of features including Continuous Play, Easy Search, Noise-Cut, A-B Repeat and Digital Pitch Control, the affordable ICDBX112 is a fitting digital voice recorder for high-school and college students, as well as corporate professionals. Sony also provides Low-Cut Filter Protection, erase and divide options, the useful Add/Overwrite Recording function and the Direct Record to Play feature.
Another benefit enjoyed by the ICDBX112 user is its portability. Small, lightweight, and powered by two tiny AAA batteries, the ICDBX112 can record for an incredible 55 hours between battery changes. For more efficient time spent working in the field, Sony accented the ICDBX112 with an integrated 300mW front speaker for listening back over recordings out loud. If you prefer or need privacy, there is a 3.5mm stereo headphone output that can also be used as a line-out for connecting larger speakers. The ICDBX112 features a 3.5mm stereo mic input as well. You can use an external microphone to record in MP3 format through the ICDBX112; employing Sony's Mic Stereo Recording Function during the record makes even stereo recordings possible through the regularly monaural ICDBX112 Digital Voice Recorder.
