Sony NW-S705F Noise Canceling Walkman (2GB, black)

 

Design Sony is one of few companies capable of competing with--and occasionally surpassing--Apple's design sensibilities and attention to detail. Truth be told, the NW-S705F is a sexier player than the iPod Nano with similar dimensions (3 inches wide,...

The Sony NW-S705F Walkman is a beautiful player that offers active noise-cancellation, FM radio, long-haul battery life, and high quality earphones

If you lose Sony's earphones, you'll lose the NW-S705F's noise-canceling feature as well. Transferring music requires Sony's SonicStage software and a lot of patience

Despite its small capacity, the Sony NW-S705F delivers a lot of bang for the buck with ahead-of-its-time noise-cancellation and a 50-hour battery life. If you can tolerate Sony's software long enough to load your favorite music, you won't be disappointed.

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-E003 (1GB, pink)

 

Sony may have given up the portable audio crown to Apple years ago, but the Walkman pioneer has never given up the ghost. Although the tech giant made some questionable decisions during the past several years, such as placing a large amount of energy...

The Sony NW-E000 features a stylish design with a handy built-in USB interface, and it offers some desirable features, such as an FM radio. It's also competitively priced.

Sony's requisite SonicStage software still leaves much to be desired, and the NW-E000's display is impossible to read in direct sunlight. This player's controls are also rather unintuitive.

The Sony NW-E000 is a compact, stylish flash MP3 player that those who can tolerate SonicStage should consider, but beware the unintuitive interface.

Sony NW-E105 Network Walkman (512MB, Psyc Blue)

 

After its native MP3 support, the first thing that stands out about the NW-E105 is the fact that it's priced to compete squarely with Apple's iPod Shuffle . This is an uncharacteristic move for Sony--the company's audio players are usually priced on...

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.
