The VN-741PC is the perfect solution to record your voice. With its highly distinctive large LCD screen and speaker, the front panel has been fashioned so that all types of users will find operating the recorder familiar and convenient. Ease-of-use was our prime concern when designing the front-panel buttons, and as a result, even beginners to digital voice recording can make full use of this recorder for business and everyday life.

Designed to capture every tone.

The low-noise microphone features a large diameter and is omni-directional – ensuring it can capture sound from all directions while keeping background noise and breath sound to a minimum. This makes the voice recorder the perfect dictation device.


Does the adjusting for you.

To make listening to your recordings more comfortable, Intelligent Auto Mode automatically adjusts the recording level to match the volume of the sound source. When a speaker is talking very loudly, the recorder reduces the input level, and for soft voices the recorder increases the input level – to always provide an even level of volume.


Made for beginners. Just as perfect for advanced.

With two different display modes, you can use your voice recorder even if you are a beginner. Simple Mode displays only essential information in large font and limits the menu options to frequently-used functions. For advanced users, full functionality of menu options is available in Normal Mode.


The simplest way to save data.

Save data easily and conveniently with the built-in USB connector. Simply slot it into your PC or Mac to transfer voice recordings from the device to an external hard disk drive. You can also use it like a USB stick to share documents.
