Released simultaneously as the MD-MS701 and MD-MS702, they are almost identical except for color differences. Uses a proprietary lithium-ion rechargable battery, so it may be difficult to find a modern replacement.

The site claims the Pioneer PMD-R3 and Kenwood DMC-J7R are the same unit.

A rare red version of the MD-MS702 exists as the model MD-MS702-Red. The back features the Danish rock band Michael Learns To Rock This is likely a promotion for the 2001 compilation album 19 Love Ballads which came out in Europe with an exclusive red cover.
