Digital Voice Recorder, eBoTrade 8GB

5 Affordable Voice Recording Devices - ATC BlogPromising Review:

“Completely satisfied customer! I’ve owned a few voice recorders over the years and this one is by far the best unit I have used. The small/compact design packs a durable battery life and gobs of storage. I went with the 8 GB of storage and should be able to record for a month at a time before I need to transfer files to my computer. The front facing speaker on this unit also packs a punch and delivers a balanced sound. Also very convenient with this product is the headphones, microphone, telephone attachment, and USB charging cord for upload/download and charging on any device.” — Connor

Digital Voice Recorder with Fast Charging by EVIDA

5 Affordable Voice Recording Devices - ATC BlogPromising Review:

“I purchased this for my wife to record public speeches on conferences. To my surprise, this device reduces noise and records voice perfectly fine. Please note that I don’t have this requirement to record with crystal clear clarity. I only needed to record the sounds so that we can listen to it later and convert the contents to text. This one worked for about 3 days without a single recharge. Cannot ask for more!” — Enigma

“Easy to use and have recorded a number of lectures with this one. The range and quality are very good despite having poor acoustics in the class, and a teacher that mumbles and inserts southern colloquialisms during his rambling lectures.” — Jason
