Sony Noise Canceling Walkman NW-S705F

 

Good active noise cancellation. Good sound quality. Compact player and earbuds. Excellent battery life. Very good included earbuds.

Expensive for a 2GB player. No larger models. Somewhat awkward controls. Only DRM support is for Sony Connect music store. Requires somewhat clunky Sony SonicStage software.

The NW-S705F's active noise cancellation works well, and battery life is excellent, but player's biggest drawback for many will be the lack of Windows Media DRM support, while for others it'll be the price.

Sony NW-E005F Walkman

 

The Sony NW-E005F Walkman is a member of Sony's latest entry-level line of flash-based MP3 players, the E000 series, intended for digital audio newbies. It's basically a USB thumb drive that plays digital music files with a built-in FM tuner and a...

Very small and light. Good-quality earbuds included. Long battery life. Fast charging time. Integrated USB plug.

Audio glitch makes some music sound distorted and grainy. Button layout and size can cause difficult navigation for some users. No PlaysForSure support. No on-device playlist creating or editing.

The NW-E005F is tiny and feather-light, has a built-in FM tuner, and supports lots of audio formats, but I'm not crazy about its buttons, interface, or annoying audio shortcomings.

Sony NW-E100 review: Sony NW-E100

 

Sony NW-E105 Network Walkman Hallelujah! After what has seemed like endless amounts of pressure from the media and the public, Sony has finally given in. Many of the portable audio devices that the company has announced for 2005 now support native MP3...

Fantastic battery life; inexpensive; solid sound quality; gets really loud; innovative rocking faceplate controls.

No FM tuner or recording options; inelegant software; must use SonicStage app to transfer songs.

Budget-conscious music fans who want more than the Apple iPod Shuffle has to offer will be pleased with Sony's NW-E100 flash players.

The Sony Walkman NW-S705F is a good all around music player that has the unique advantage of offering dual noise canceling features out of the box.

Sounds good, Active and passive noise-canceling

SonicStage software, Slightly haphazard button layout

Sony Walkman NW-E015

 

Sounds great, but is that enough to convince Jonathan?

Of course SonicStage isn't all bad. You can use it to rip tracks to Advanced ATRAC lossless format and play them back, a codec which to my ears is every bit as good, if not a touch superior, to open source FLAC lossless files. It also exchanges stats...

Sony's latest looks like a snazzy USB key but has simplified controls making it easy to use and a bright, clear OLED screen

Sounds excellent, looks sleek, costs little, works well – no complaints here
