With a sleek, metallic body and a backlit, OLED display, the TX660 Digital Voice Recorder from Sony delivers high-quality, stereo audio recording in a compact form factor that fits easily into your pocket. The TX660 provides 16GB of internal memory for up to 636 hours of MP3 48 kbps quality audio in one recording, and a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery for up to 17 hours of continuous recording.

Ideal for any voice recording scenario including voice memos, interviews, electronic news gathering, and simple field recordings, the TX660 is simple to use thanks to intuitive features like one-push recording, an Auto Voice Recording mode that optimizes audio capture for vocal frequencies, and a 3.5mm headphone jack for convenient monitoring of recordings and playback. And with support for high-fidelity recording formats like 48 kHz / 16-bit linear PCM and MP3s up to 320 kbps, you will never miss a detail.

Reduce Background Noise with Auto Voice Recording
Recording someone talking? Switch on Auto Voice Recording to optimize audio capture settings for vocal frequencies. You'll get cleaner recording with less background noise and a reduced chance of audio loss from incorrect microphone settings.
Intuitive and Convenient
When you need to start recording in a rush, use the One Push Recording feature and recording will start immediately, even if the device had been powered off. The TX660 has 16GB of built-in memory, so you have plenty of storage space for your audio, allowing you to record for a maximum of 636 hours in one go, or store up to 5000 separate files.

With an OLED Display that is 41% larger than the TX650 Voice Recorder, you can keep track of your recordings and read text more easily than ever. And when your recordings are extra long, you can use the Time Jump feature to skip 10% of the total playback time of each recording and find the important sections of your meeting, interview or lecture, with ease.

Does this charge through a USB connector? How long does it take to charge? Thanks!
Asked by: James
The Sony TX660 Digital Voice Recorder BH #SOICDTX660 will charge its internal rechargeable battery via a USB connection to a computer or an AC USB charger/power supply. This recorder should reach a full charge within 4 hours. Per SONY: • You can charge the battery by connecting a USB AC adaptor to a household power outlet. Being able to use the unit while it is charging is useful when recording for a long time. When using a USB AC adaptor, use one that can supply an output current of 500 mA or more. Charging from other devices is not guaranteed. • Do not use a USB adaptor that exceeds the maximum output of 13 W (5 V, 2.6 A)
