Sony Walkman NWZ-B152


A 2GB gym-companion MP3 player much cheaper than an iPod shuffle.

Decent sound quality ; Drag-and-drop file management ; Display

Build quality

One particularly notable feature of the NWZ-B152 is the player's ability to pull 90 minutes of power from just three minutes of charging. If you're the type not to notice you've forgotten to charge your player until you come to use it, this will prove...

Sony Walkman NWZ-B152 review


Sony's NWZ-B152 is a disappointing re-release of its B142F Walkman MP3 player. The good battery life and fast charging don't do much to make up for the outdated design, awkward menus, average audio quality and horrible jog-dial.

Pocket-friendly size ; Good battery life ; Quick charge

Terrible jog dial ; Tiny screen ; Average audio quality

At £35 for the 2GB B152 model (or £41 for the B153), this player isn't going to break the bank, but you really aren't getting much for your money.

Sony NWZ-B152B 2GB New B Series MP3 Player - Black


Brought as a gift for my husband and he loves it. He downloaded all his music off our pc in a matter of minutes (about 20 albums worth) and still has loads more space on it.

Sony NWZ-B152


Light with good battery life

Too quiet. I can hardly hear any of my songs ; I have gone back to using an old iPod shuffle because of this ; Searched the internet for ways around this but no luck as yet ; Apparently its an EU directive to limit the volume
