One-click remote recording

Get the best recording quality without sacrificing convenience. The remote control lets you deploy the Sony ICD-TX800 Digital Voice Recorder anywhere in the room. One button press starts the recording, even if the voice recorder was switched off.

Small and lightweight

Take the Sony ICD-TX800 everywhere with the handy belt clip. You can attach it to your belt or bag so that you don't forget it when going to a lecture or meeting.

It's compact and lightweight, which means you can take it anywhere you go.

Dual recording formats

Choose from either MP3 or Linear PCM recordings. MP3s use less memory, so you can save an entire lecture no matter how much the lecturer waffles. When recording something more sensitive like music, the Linear PCM format stores greater detail for when listening back.

Built-in micro USB

Hook the Sony TX800 up to any USB device to get instant access to your recordings. You can play them back so you can hear how good your band is getting, and transfer them over for storage or sharing.
