Sony 1GB Walkman NW-E507


This is a very small MP3 player by Sony. It is actually called a Sony Walkman. What it comes with. The unit itself. A black pouch. USB cable. 1/8 inch headphone cable, male and female ends. 1/8 inch headphones. Installation CD. ...

Small size, great battery life, easy to use

Requires SonicStage

Product Specifications

Beautiful design. Incredible functionality. The NW-E507 is superior in every regard. The 3-line organic electro luminescence display is sharp and clean, artfully providing song title, track duration, and battery information. This 1GB player lets you load up with 695 songs, but doesn't stop there; it also has an FM tuner. Tired of your tunes? Tune in the local indie station. Yeah, it's about the size of a pack of gum, and it has an FM tuner and 1GB of storage capacity. The NW-E507 also features insane battery life: up to 50 hours of playback on one full charge. And, if you're down to your last bar, just quick charge it. A three-minute charge gives you three hours of playtime. It's time to step up to Sony.
