Choosing the Best Voice Recorder for You
There are many great digital audio recorders on the market today - but how can you decide which one is right for you? Think about these factors when you are making your decision:
Audio Quality: A variety of factors influence a device’s recording quality, so check its supported bitrates and frequency response range to get an idea of the sound quality you can expect. Many will have the option to record in lower or higher quality to control memory usage. Noise cancellation, which allows the user to filter out background noise, is another feature that helps produce higher quality recordings.
Battery Life and Type: To make sure your audio recorder is always ready when you need it, take note of its rated battery life and hours of recording time. It is also worth noting which type of batteries it uses. Some use rechargeable lithium ion batteries, while others use disposable alkaline batteries like AAAs.
Voice Activated Recording: Many audio recorders, particularly high end models, offer voice activation to automatically begin recording when someone starts speaking.
Ports and Connectors: Most recorders include a USB port to transfer files and a 3.5mm headphone jack for connecting to audio devices, but the exact ports available can vary.
Form Factor: Take note of the recorder’s physical dimensions to make sure it will fit comfortably in your pocket, purse, backpack, or wherever you will be carrying it.
Audio File Formats: Most audio recorders support common file types like the WAV and MP3 formats, but check to verify which specific ones your selection supports if you need specific options.
Built In Memory: Typically, an audio recorder will offer some amount of built in recording memory, often at least 4GB. If you don’t want to use SD cards, make sure to choose a model with sufficient built in memory for your needs.
MicroSD Slots: Think you will need to expand your recording capacity? Make sure your recorder offers memory card expansion slots so you can use microSD cards or another format to capture more audio on the go.
