Introducing the slimmest, most inconspicuous digital voice recorder you've ever laid eyes on. In the conference room or in the classroom, all will be jealous of this sleek, chic idea-capturing machine. But don't be fooled by the ICD-TX50's good looks—when it comes to performance, it's all about business. Get up to 178 hours of MP3 recording with 4GB1 of internal memory, plus a microSD memory card slot for virtually endless recording capacity. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to 24 hours of battery life on a full charge, or get one hour of recording time on just a quick three minute charge3. So slip it in your pocket before a colleague snatches it up—with a built-in pocket clip that doubles as a smart tabletop kickstand, your recorder will stay safe, secure and all yours.
