The recorder can capture up to 533 hours of audio (with 2GB memory) and boasts 51 hours of battery life, along with USB charging.

Aside from long battery life and recording time, the DM-420 features a high quality built-in zoom stereo microphone and a 3.5mm jack for adding an optional external microphone.
