Transcription playback helps you review recordings

Getting conversations down on paper is easy with the transcription playback mode. Easily fast-forward and rewind through the track, or create cue points that help you find your place quickly. Digital Pitch Control even lets you slow down the playback speed so you can listen more closely to what's being said.

Low cut filter eliminates unwanted noise

Filter out low-frequency background noises when you record by engaging the low cut filter. Sources of unwanted noise like projectors, traffic or wind can be filtered out of your recording, so it's easy to make out voices when you listen back.

Record and listen in Linear PCM or MP3 formats

Choose from two popular file formats when you record. Linear PCM files are larger but capture more detail""ideal for recording music. MP3 files are compressed but require less memory, making them better for recording long lectures or meetings. The ICD-PX470 will also play back MP3 and PCM files, so you can listen to your favourite songs in music player mode.

Auto Voice Recording reduces background noise

Want to record someone talking Turn on Auto Voice Recording and the ICD-PX470 will optimize audio capture settings for vocal frequencies. The result is a purer recording with reduced background noise. And when you listen back to the recording, Clear Voice technology cleans up the signal even more for improved clarity.

S-microphone system captures distant or quiet sounds

Now you can record those faint audio sources without capturing excessive background noise, thanks to the high-sensitivity, low-noise S-microphone. Even the sound of birds twittering in the distance can be captured naturally and clearly.

Extra-long battery life for extended recording

When recording with the built-in mic at MP3 192/128 kbps, the supplied AAA battery will last for up to 55 hours. That's over two full days of non-stop recording in between battery changes""perfect for recording at long conferences and events.

Adjustable microphone range for clearer voices

Adjustable microphone settings hone in on the sound you want to capture. When you're recording a single voice, Focus mode captures a narrow field of sound from one direction. When you"re in meetings, the Wide-Stereo mode opens up the range to capture everyone in the room. Choose from four 'scene' pre-sets (music, meeting, interview, dictation) to further optimize the audio settings.
