Audio Recorder

Exceptional recording,

in full stereo sound

The Philips VoiceTracer 2050 is the perfect audio recorder for capturing notes, ideas and thoughts on the go. Thanks to its excellent sound quality, long-lasting battery and large extendable memory, it is the ideal alternative to recording with your smartphone.

Two high-quality stereo microphones for excellent sound quality

The two high-quality stereo microphones deliver crystal-clear sound quality when recording notes, ideas and thoughts on the go.

Stereo MP3 and PCM recording for clear playback and easy file sharing

Capture your recordings in stereo MP3 or PCM format. The popular MP3 file format allows you to play back your files virtually anywhere and simply share them with others. The PCM (WAV) format allows stereo recording of lossless, uncompressed sound in CD-like audio quality.

No installation required for quick plug & play

The recorder requires no special installation. Simply plug your recorder into your PC or Mac and play back your files or transfer them to your computer right away.

Backlight display for easy file navigation in low-light situations

The large backlit display allows you to see all important file information clearly at a glance. This makes file navigation easier, even in lowlight situations.

8 GB internal memory storage for extra-long recording hours

With the 8 GB of built-in memory, your recorder is able to capture multiple days of continuous recording.

Micro SD memory card slot for virtually unlimited recording

Virtually unlimited recording capacity thanks to a micro SD memory card slot supporting up to 32 GB of additional memory.

Rechargeable Li-polymer battery for extra-long recording
