Featuring 32-Bit float recording, allowing the user to record the loudest signals without worrying about clipping as well as the quietest signals in great detail and making the F2 an ideal set-and-forget field recorder. In the field no gain adjustment is necessary.
Weighing in at only 32g the F2 can be easily attached to a belt's waistbands or concealed in a pocket. Featuring intuitive one-touch buttons to record, play, stop, and adjust volume as well as up to a 15-hour run time on 2x AAA batteries, it is a reliable and hassle free companion in the field.
The recorder comes with an omnidirectional, low-profile lavalier microphone.
