Sony ICD-UX570 Digital Voice Recorder (Black)
The black Sony ICD-UX570 is a compact digital voice recorder offering built-in and external storage, a fast-charging internal battery, and cableless USB connectivity. Compared to the ICD-UX560, this model features an enlarged OLED display, a wider recording LED, and auto-recording modes for voice and music sources.
With a highly sensitive S-Microphone system and MP3/LPCM recording capabilities, the ICD-UX570 lets you capture speeches, meetings, lectures, and music, clearly and conveniently. The Auto Voice Recording and Auto Music Recording settings ensure that your audio will be crisp and free of distortion.
Since the ICD-UX570 features built-in microphones and an integrated speaker, you can use it without any additional equipment. It also sports 3.5mm jacks to accommodate an external microphone and your favorite headphones. A carrying case is included for safe and simple transport.
See Clearly with a Larger OLED Display
It's even easier to start, review, or manage your recordings with more clarity on the UX570's large OLED screen.
Wider, Brighter Recording LED
With the UX570, you won't worry about whether or not you're recording when you need to. The wider, brighter LED makes it easy to recognize when you're recording.
Capture Distant or Quiet Sounds with S-Microphone
Record faint audio sources without capturing excessive background noise, thanks to the highly sensitive, low-noise S-Microphone. Even the sound of birds twittering in the distance can be captured naturally and clearly.
Reduce Background Noise with Auto Voice Recording
Recording someone talking? Switch on Auto Voice Recording to optimize audio capture settings for vocal frequencies. The result is a purer recording with less background noise and a reduced chance of audio loss caused by unsuitable microphone settings.
Get a Better Sound with Auto Music Recording
The Auto Music Recording optimizes audio capture settings for music frequencies. It reduces the impact of recording mistakes caused by incorrect microphone sensitivity settings and delivers crisp, high-quality audio.
The UX570 makes it easy to locate the playback point you need. Short-range skipping is a breeze with Easy Search, which enables you to go back three seconds or forward 10 seconds with the click of a button.
Get to the Point with Time Jump
Long-range skipping is simple, too. You can easily find the important sections of your meeting, seminar, or lecture by using Time Jump to skip each 10% of the total playback time of a recording.
Turn It Up with Playback Normalization
Thanks to Playback Normalization, you can listen clearly even when you unexpectedly record low-level audio. It boosts your recording amplitude to the highest limit without compromising on sound quality.
USB Direct Connection for Quick File Transfer
Transferring files to or from your computer is fast and convenient. Just plug the UX570 straight into a free USB port for an immediate connection with no USB cable needed.
With its 4GB of built-in storage, the UX570 can record in stereo for up to 59 hours in MP3 file type at 128 kb/s. Plus, you can boost your storage with compatible memory cards. A microSDHC card will give you up to 32GB of storage, or a microSDXC card will give you an impressive 64GB or more.
Thin, Light, and Easy to Carry
At just 4.05 × 1.45 × 0.49" and approximately 1.7 oz, the sleek UX570 is both light and thin, meaning it can slip into your pocket and go wherever you go.
Built-In Rechargeable Battery
The built-in lithium battery enables up to 22 hours of MP3 recording time and recharges via USB. A three-minute quick charge grants one hour of recording time.
