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
