Sony Walkman NW-S705F review

 

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 latest flash-based player from Sony is impressively small and light, but far from perfect.

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 supports aac, wma, mp3, and sony's proprietary atrac and atracplus formats. sadly, it doesn't support protected files purchased from anywhere but sony connect. i'm glad sony supports the aac format, as many itunes users have their...

Sony NW-E100 review

 

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.

Sony NW-S705 Walkman Player

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...
