Sony NW-S200 review


When info about Sony's NW-S200 Sports Walkman leaked onto the Web back in July, I was quick to lean on the company's PR team to get the inside scoop. It took many patient weeks of waiting to get my hands on an actual review unit of the fitness-minded...

Sony's NW-S200 S2 Sports Walkman features a unique design and several fitness-friendly extras; it applies nifty uses of Sony's G-sensor technology; sound quality is excellent; includes an FM tuner.

As usual, Sony's subpar (and required) SonicStage software sullies the experience, and there's no fitness software to help you track your progress. The included earbuds are uncomfortable and won't fit all users.

The NW-S200 Walkman proves once again that Sony knows what it's doing in the hardware department; fitness-minded users should take a close look at this flash MP3 player. But make sure you're comfortable with SonicStage before you commit.

Easy to use and very portable


I got this player for Christmas from my parents.

Transfering files using Windows Explorer is quick, easy, and allows the user to manage files easily. FM radio reception is stronger than my sterio

I wish this unit had more accessories available in retail/chain stores. Headphone wires are 2 different lenghts.
