Sony Walkman B series (NWZ-B142F) review

 

It has none of the elegance of Apple's equivalent iPod Shuffle, but it's cheaper and has some very useful features, including a built-in screen, FM radio and recording capabilities. Minor concerns aside, the NWZ-B142F is good performer with an...

Small ; Decent audio quality ; Cheap ; Radio recording ability ; Quick charge feature

Limited storage ; Loose USB cap ; Slightly fiddly control system

These points aside, there's not a huge amount to complain about here. The 'Zappin' feature is largely irrelevant, but hardly a deal breaker. It supposedly allows you to preview songs in short, four-second bursts and we failed to find much use for it...

Review: Sony Walkman NWZ-B142F

 

Sony made its NWZ-B142F Walkman as small as possible with a screen. How well will it stand up to the screen-less iPod shuffle?

Good audio quality; FM radio; voice recording

Zappin" feature has little use; loose-fitting USB cover; controls take a while to get used to

For those with huge hard disks brimming full of digital music tracks, the NWZ-B142F Walkman may not be the best choice. Its 2GB capacity is better suited to casual use; it may make an ideal gym partner, for example. Design-wise, it's a bit of a...

"Super value for money !"

 

This is a cool device, great music, it syncs well with the windoms explorer, however that may be a problem with the latest versions as it is an MTP device..Mostly does great work for the money and looks cool!

Equalizing options, decent sound-improves with high end in-ear-phones, very sturdy, AND looks cool

Bass setting is separate from equalizers, cannt put bass OVER the eq setting of choice
