Three recording modes are available with the Sony ICD-B500. These include High Quality (HQ), SP (Standard Play), and Long Play (LP). The recording times differ depending on the mode used. When recording in HQ mode, it can record up to 30 hours and 25 minutes while it can record up to 150 hours and 15 minutes when using the LP mode.

Storage and Organization

The Sony ICD-B500 comes with an integrated 256 megabyte flash memory. Four folders are also available for file management and each folder can contain up to 99 files. Apart from this, the recorder automatically makes use of date and time stamps on each recording so that users can easily manage their files.
