Sony NW-E507 Network Walkman reviewed


Silicon Pop Culture got their hands on Sony's shiny new 1GB NW-E507 flash-based digital audio player (part of their Network Walkman line, natch), also one of the company's first MP3-friendly devices. Though you can't see it in this pic, the NW-E507...

Sony NW-E507 Flash mp3 player review


Like it not, Apple has long set the bar for MP3 players; the iconic iPod, the smaller iPod Mini and then the new iPod Shuffle. Across the industry companies are trying to copy, emulate and outdo the computer companies efforts. Sony, not content with...

Size, FM radio, Organic ED screen

Still need a cable to connect it to the PC, casing a bit plasticy

If Sony get the software fixed this would truly be a force to be reckoned with.

Sony's flash NW-E507 will play Atrac, MP3 or FM radio but it won't come cheap

Great with Atrac, MP3 or FM. You're going to have to pay for it, though

Sony Network Walkman NW-E507 (1GB) review


The NW-E507 looks fabulous and sounds just as good. Top volume falls well short of the iPod, but then you don't want to break your ears. If this almost immaculate player has a flaw, it's this: the jukebox software is poorly designed. You'll have the...

Seamless LCD display ; Esoteric navigation system

Clumsy jukebox software

In our informal tests, sound quality on the Sony was comparable to the iPod. We ran both players through flat-response studio monitors to compare the sound and found the Sony and iPod equally vibrant on tracks like Wild World by Cat Stevens....

Sony NW-E507 - MP3 Player


Sony has never really lived up to its potential in the digital music player market, but the NW-E507 is about to change all that.

The Sony NW-E507 demonstrates the old saying “you get what you pay for”. It may be more expensive than the iPod Shuffle, but in my opinion it’s worth every penny. Given, I still prefer to have all my music with me, which is why I have an iPod in my...

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.
