DotOn Digital Voice Recorder – $41.99; originally $49

Stepping in at just over an inch and a half long, the DotOn Voice Recorder is practically invisible, making it an obvious choice for any discreet recording. It's so small that there's only one button, which is actually all that it needs, making it extremely easy to use.

NanoRec Mini Voice Recorder – $41.99; originally $49

Just when you think voice recorders are as throwback as reel-to-reel tape, the NanoRec wades in with a full slate of tech features that make it as 2020 as the latest iPhone. Featuring a powerful microphone with 360° panoramic sound, NanoRec captures sound from all directions in a sleek lightweight design for capturing conversations naturally. It can hold more than 140 hours of audio and there's no LED light to give away that you're recording with the one-touch capture button.

TileRec Voice-Activated Recorder – $59.99; originally $75

While it isn't the smallest voice recorder on the market (we're getting there soon), the TileRec might be the slimmest, coming in at a svelte .25 inches high.
