Sony NW-E50

 

With a long battery life and features traditionally found on larger, more expensive players, the NW-E50 is a packed little powerhouse of MP3 playing power.

Tiny, compact design ; Good feature set ; Impressive battery life

Memory capacity won't store many MP3s

"Xcellent sound"

 

I've been using NW E50 for over 6months now & feel it is an ultimate player placked in a small device. The quality of sound is awesome & the size of it is unmatchable.

"No complaints here!"

 

Seeing I just picked it up for $99 I can't complain. Using Sound quality of ATRAC3 48khz and using the same headphones I cannot hear the difference between it and my 196Khz MP3s. Maybe I don't have good ears, but can't tell. My wife is low-tech and...

"Exactly what I wanted"

 

I was looking for a small light weight player, with good sound quality, to accompany me on my morning jogs. After comparing price, quality, weight, size and built quality...I went for the NW-E50.

"You don't know what you're missing out on!"

 

The NW-E70 with 256MB would be a better option, but this player is far superior to any others on the market (even the iPod). Designed to store enough music for one or two days, the battery life contradicts this however, with the ATRAC3 format even more...

"ATRAC better than MP3's"

 

Sony's ATRAC technology is actually a better encoding format than MP3. At comparable resolutions (bitrates) it is simply better. Its used by Media Companies as their Archive format of choice.

"It's so cool! I've had mine for a week and I still haven't replaced the battery!"

 

This is awesome, I'm using ATRAC3 instead of MP3 cause the manual says my battery will last longer with ATRAC3, I've had it for a week and been listening to it alot, but I still haven't had to replace the battery! I've put a cool mix of my fav songs...
