Sony Digital Voice Recorder With Built-In USB - ICD-PX470

Record sounds and voices in superior clarity with this stereo digital voice recorder featuring built-in USB for easy file transfer and expandable memory to capture every second. Enjoy up to 55 hours of battery life1 and adjustable microphone settings, plus Auto Voice Recording that reduces background noise so you can always hear what’s being said.


  • USB direct connection for quick file transfer
    Transferring files to or from your computer is fast and convenient. Just plug the ICD-PX470 straight into a free USB port for an immediate connection—no USB cable needed.
  • Expand your memory with the micro SD card slot
    The ICD-PX470 comes with 4 GB of memory built-in, which gives you a max recording time up to 59 h 35 m when recording in stereo at MP3 128 kbps. You can expand your memory capacity with a micro SD card for up to 32 GB2 of additional memory—equivalent to over 536 hours (Micro SD 32 GB, MP3 128 kbps) of recording time.
  • Extra-long battery life for extended recording
    When recording with the built-in mic at MP3 192/128 kbps, the supplied AAA battery will last for up to 55 hours.1 That’s over two full days of non-stop recording in between battery changes—perfect for recording at long conferences and events.
  • Adjustable microphone range for clearer voices
    Adjustable microphone settings hone in on the sound you want to capture. When you’re recording a single voice, Focus mode captures a narrow field of sound from one direction. When you’re in meetings, the Wide-Stereo mode opens up the range to capture everyone in the room. Choose from four “scene” pre-sets (music, meeting, interview, dictation) to further optimize the audio settings.
  • Auto Voice Recording reduces background noise
    Want to record someone talking? Turn on Auto Voice Recording and the ICD-PX470 will optimize audio capture settings for vocal frequencies. The result is a purer recording with reduced background noise. And when you listen back to the recording, Clear Voice technology cleans up the signal even more for improved clarity.
  • Transcription playback helps you review recordings
    Getting conversations down on paper is easy with the transcription playback mode. Easily fast-forward and rewind through the track, or create cue points that help you find your place quickly. Digital Pitch Control even lets you slow down the playback speed so you can listen more closely to what’s being said.
  • S-microphone system captures distant or quiet sounds
    Now you can record those faint audio sources without capturing excessive background noise, thanks to the highsensitivity, low-noise S-microphone. Even the sound of birds twittering in the distance can be captured naturally and clearly
  • Record and listen in Linear PCM or MP3 formats
    Choose from two popular file formats when you record. Linear PCM files are larger but capture more detail—ideal for recording music. MP3 files are compressed but require less memory, making them better for recording long lectures or meetings. The ICD-PX470 will also play back MP3 and PCM files, so you can listen to your favorite songs in music player mode
  • Calendar Search finds the right file quickly
    Recordings are marked by date, so you can easily find which ones were made on a specific day. Bring up the calendar to browse through days and find the recording you’re looking for
