Sony NW-S703F Noise Canceling Walkman (1GB, pink)

 

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 NW-S703F review

 

The inclusion of the noise cancelling on the NW-S703F will be a boon for most commuters and the player also impresses with its marathon battery life and punchy sound quality. Transferring tracks using the SonicStage jukebox software, however, is very...

A superb battery life, attractive looks and neat controls make the Sony NW-S703F one of the stand-out offerings in its market.

A superb battery life, attractive looks and neat (if initially confusing) controls make the Sony NW-S703F one of the stand-out offerings in its market. The software is a pain, though.

A great noise cancelling mp3 player

 

I got this network walkman because I needed a replacement for my NW-E505 which is getting a bit old. I was satisfied with the NW-E505's performance so decided to get the NW-S703F. On the plus side, the noise cancelling feature works really well,...

Small size, sturdy build, excellent earphones

Sonicstage, slight processor lag when all features turned on
