Empezando por el precio que aquí en México no supera los $1250 pesos, un punto a favor. Desde hace unos años he decidido que quería un buen reproductor de música. Tuve reproductores de varias marcas populares, pero ninguno era lo que yo esperaba en la calidad sonora. Me puse a investigar y llegué a la serie E de SONY mi primer walkman fué un E-445. Ahora tengo también el NWZ-E453, el sonido se mantiene en el mismo rango de calidad sonora. Bueno la construcción de el aparato es en una especie de plástico brillante que tiene la facilidad de maltratarse con el uso común. Lo único que me preocupa es que el botón de bloqueo está fabricado en plástico. Mi primer aparato con el tiempo tuvo el problema de que el botón terminó demasiado liso después de un par de años de uso, lo cual impide que deslice con facilidad el botón. Los botones de comando son muy simples y permiten una fácil navegación de las funciones del aparato como de las carpetas. El sistema permite ecualizar de varias formas, tiene varios settings predeterminados y dos que pueden ser ajustados manualmente por el usuario. El resultado es una calidad sonora bastante buena. La duración de la batería es de una duración promedio de 20 horas con el ecualizador personalizado. Yo si lo recomiendo, eso si cambien los audifonos incluidos por otros de mayor rango. Lo que mas escucho es POWER METAL y MUSICA CLASICA.

Sony's wallet-friendly Walkman is a miniature music marvel

Sony NWZ-E453 Walkman review

 

Squarely aimed at younger music fans, the NWZ-E453 makes up one-third of the brightly coloured E Series, which also includes the NWZ-E454 (8GB) and the NWZ-E455 (16GB). The model we're looking at comes with 4GB of built-in memory and offers up to 50...

Great audio quality, compact design, Karaoke Mode, easy file transfer

Small screen, flimsy control buttons

Excellent audio quality, innovative features and an affordable price tag make this compact music player a great buy

Sony Walkman NWZ-E453 review

 

The Sony Walkman NWZ-E453 isn't quite as slick or good-looking as its iPod rivals, but its simplicity, affordability and portability make it a worthy competitor none the less. Overall, it's a winner.

Slim and lightweight ; Good audio quality ; Easy to use ; Fun karaoke mode ; Affordable

Occasionally frustrating interface ; Not as slick as an iPod

The Sony Walkman NWZ-E453 isn't as slick or pretty as an iPod, but it's dead easy to use, extremely slim and highly affordable. We reckon it's a worthy alternative to an iPod if the taste of Apple makes you gag.

Looks Good

I purchased this through a Sony Centre and was given assurances that it would play through the USB unit in my Range Rover it certainly does not and was a complete waste of money. I did mention at the time of purchase that my car had an ipod facility...
