With a durable magnesium chassitop designed with stiff straight lines and soft curves, iNNO Design shows of their innovative feel for creative design solutions. The iFP-599T has a list of new and exiting features. The Lithium-Ion battery delivers 28 hours of playback. Use the adapter or your PC's USB port, to fully charge the battery - it takes only 3 hours. Sound Activity Detector (SAD) function saves memory and power. During voice recording the player only record when sound is captured and turns off recording when it's silent.
