THE BEST MICRO VOICE RECORDERS DEVICES MIAMI BEACH CORAL GABLES After doing 52 hours of research and testing a few voice recorders devices over the past two years (adding four recent models for this update) in real-world settings—a college classroom, a noisy coffee shop, and a quiet office—we’ve determined that the best audio recorder for most people interested in capturing meetings, lectures, dictation, and in-person interviews is the Sony UX560. MICRO VOICE RECORDER MIAMI BEACH CORAL GABLES

It recorded the most intelligible audio of all the recorders we tested and offers the most useful collection of features: It’s rechargeable via USB; it has a legible, backlit screen; and its menu system is the easiest to navigate. MICRO VOICE RECORDER MIAMI BEACH CORAL GABLES

We tested four new recorders and have a new main pick, the Sony UX560; a runner-up, the Olympus WS-853; and a budget pick, the Sony PX470. For the first time, we also considered the best smartphone apps for those who do only occasional recordings. MICRO VOICE RECORDER MIAMI BEACH CORAL GABLES

The Sony UX560 is an easy-to-use recorder that provides crisp, clear audio in the most-common recording situations. It recharges via USB and lets you easily transfer files to a computer.

The Sony UX560’s extra features make an already-great recorder stand out from the rest voice activated tape recorders.

The UX560 also has a rechargeable battery that charges via that USB plug. This means you won’t have to worry about having disposable batteries on hand. The UX560 doesn’t come with a wall charger—you’ll need to use a USB charger or connect the recorder to a computer to charge; if you have a recent Apple laptop or other computer with only USB-C ports, you’ll need an adapter.

The recorder comes with 4 GB of storage, which allows for roughly 39 hours of recording time using MP3 format at 192 Kbps; that’s comparable to what you get with most of the recorders we tested. A covered but easily accessible microSD slot allows for 32 GB more of storage space if you need more recording hours. The UX560 offers a range of file and recording formats so you can opt for better audio quality or pocket file sizes.

The UX560’s extra features make an already-great recorder stand out from the rest. Choose from a “noise cut” filter (which rolls off both low and high frequency sounds) or a low-cut filter to reduce boomy lower frequencies and rumbly sounds alone. Scene selection presets let you optimize EQ and microphone sensitivity settings for lectures, meetings, interviews, voice notes, and loud and soft music scenarios.

You can mark locations in your recording on the fly, so you can return to them later as you listen, and voice-activated recording can automatically stop you during pauses in conversation. (This feature was on all of the recorders tested, though you’ll probably prefer to manually pause and restart recordings to make sure you’re getting the audio you want.)

The UX560 is half as thick as the PX470, making it easy to fit in a shirt or pants pocket.

Like all of the recorders we tested, the UX560 also comes with a strap loop if you want to add a wrist strap or lanyard; you’ll need to provide your own, though it’s easy enough to find an inexpensive option.

Flaws but not dealbreakers

The screen on the UX560’s fades and eventually shuts off during recording, which is a little disconcerting, but an LED indicates that you’re still recording. This recorder also lacks a convenient erase button, so you’ll need to navigate through its menu to delete recordings.

Runner-up: Olympus WS-853 Micro Voice Recorders Devices

Runner-up

Olympus WS-853 Micro Voice Recorder Device

A close up of the olympus WS-853 interface showing the internal memory storage.

With 8 GB of internal storage, the Olympus has the most memory of the recorders we tested.

The Olympus has one of the largest screens of the models tested, larger than that of our main pick. The larger screen makes the menus slightly easier to see in daylight, but the Olympus’s screen isn’t backlit, making it harder to use in low-light settings.

As with the Sony UX560, a pop-out USB 3.0 plug lets you easily upload files to a computer and recharge the two replaceable AAA batteries, which takes about 3 hours. The Olympus doesn’t have quite as many high-quality recording options as the UX560, but it still has a range of formats that let you optimize quality or maximize storage space. MICRO VOICE RECORDER MIAMI BEACH CORAL GABLES

It also has a low-cut filter to reduce excess low-end rumble. Although the Olympus doesn’t have a scene setting aimed at recording music like our main pick, it has presets that tailor recording settings for dictation, meetings, conferences, and telephone recordings. Like the UX560, the Olympus has a voice-activated recording setting to automatically stop and start recordings based on volume levels so you don’t have to manually pause if you’re recording a lecture or conversation with lots of breaks. MICRO VOICE RECORDER MIAMI BEACH CORAL GABLES

While playing back audio, the WS853 can compensate somewhat for problems you might have run into while recording: a noise-cancellation setting can reduce overall background hiss (though this comes at the expense of battery life), while a voice balancer setting can even out recordings that were made with the mic sensitivity set too low or high by compressing the overall level for a more even sound (though you might run into increased noise). MICRO VOICE RECORDER MIAMI BEACH CORAL GABLES

The Olympus is made of shiny plastic and has raised buttons that some people will find easier to use. It’s the only recorder we tested to come with a case—a neoprene sleeve—which is useful for protecting the recorder during storage.

If you mainly record in quiet environments

The PX470 is a bit bulkier than our main pick, and its audio quality isn’t as good, but it has a similar layout and navigation system. It does best in quiet settings with minimal background noise.

If you mainly record voice activated memos in your office, or interviews in quiet rooms, you can save some money by choosing the Sony ICD-PX470. While our panel ranked the Sony PX470 lower than the UX560 in overall audio quality, the PX470 did get the highest scores for our interview recorded in a quiet office. It rated poorly in the lecture test, however, as listeners said that background and foreground noises overpowered the speaker’s micro voice recorders devices.

The PX470’s menu system is similar to that of the UX560 and has an identical button layout. The screen, however, is pocket, dimmer, and harder to read than the UX560’s. The PX470 is also slightly larger and bulkier—while the UX560 is about the thickness of an iPhone, the PX470 is closer to the thickness of two iPhones.

At that size, it’s not as convenient to carry around in a pocket. However, with its larger overall size it may be better for people who have trouble using pocket devices like the UX560 and the Olympus. The PX470 doesn’t look as sleek as the UX560 (as you might expect for a cheaper model).

The PX470 has a battery life of 55 hours, which is longer than that of our main pick, but it doesn’t have a built-in rechargeable battery; it uses AAA batteries. It has 4 GB of storage with a microSD slot if you want to add memory—similar to what you get with our top pick, but less than what you get with our runner-up. It also has a built-in USB 3.0 plug for easy file upload.

Best for iPhone Micro Voice Recorder Device Miami Beach Coral Gables

Voice Memos is included free with every iOS device, is ad-free, produces high-quality recordings, and is super simple to use.

The best voice-recording device OS app for most people—provided your recording environment is relatively quiet—is the one that comes free with your iPhone: Voice Memos. It’s one of the simplest ways to start and stop recording, it’s easy to quickly share your audio files, and it doesn’t include annoying ads like many free apps. Our listening panel thought the voice recordings it captured in lecture and office recordings were understandable, although the app doesn’t do as well in very noisy environments.

Voice device Memos lets you easily trim recordings (left) by tapping the Trim button and then holding and dragging markers to specific locations; the app lists recordings (middle) in a simple list. The third-party Voice Recorder app (right) displays recordings as icons and has annoying ads.

Like all the iOS apps we considered, you can easily share recordings made using Voice Memos via email, iMessage, Slack, Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, or any other app or service that integrates with iOS’s Share Sheet. The paid version of Voice Recorder Device offers a few more cloud storage options, like uploading straight to an FTP or using WebDAV protocols, but we don’t think most people need these features.

Voice Memos displays your recordings in a list; they can’t be organized into folders. While this is slightly frustrating, it’s fairly standard for recorder apps—even the priciest app we tested, Just Press Record, won’t let you rename and organize folders. Recordings are still easy to see and find in Voice Memos’s list (easier than in Voice Recorder’s icon grid), and you can label and name files. Voice Memos doesn’t offer any recording options: You can’t change sample or bit rate or file format. MICRO VOICE RECORDER MIAMI BEACH CORAL GABLES
