Who says radio is dead? Sure, we've got the internet these days, podcasts and all that jazz. But there's still a lot of joy to be had from browsing the airwaves and seeing what radio shows are playing. It's certainly still a trend in Japan and that's why Sony has produced this ICZ-R50 Portable Radio Recorder. Great for learning languages or just recording your favorite shows, you can program up to 20 different recordings and up to 178 hours of audio content!
It all sounds a bit retro but in fact Sony has equipped this radio recorder with the standard bells and whistles, including a USB connection so you can transfer the data to your computer as an MP3 or WAV file. The playback options also allow you to track-mark and repeat sections. Lightweight (just 532g or 18.8oz) and battery-powered, you can take the recorder around with you on camping trips or days out, leaving your other devices at home for once!
