Playback Speed Control
The ICR-FP550 can playback audio files at three different speeds; SLOW, normal (labeled SPEED) and FAST.

Voice Activated System (VAS) Technology
Voice Activated System (VAS) technology automatically starts recording when the unit senses sound levels which are above a minimum, user-adjustable, threshold level. The microphone threshold sensitivity levels are selectable from SEN LOW, SEN MID and SEN HIGH to find just the right level to trigger VAS recording.

This allows the ICR-FP550 to be set to VAS mode and have audible sounded automatically recorded.
