Sony Walkman Will Bring Music To Your Ears.

 

I found the perfect present for both my daughter and us parents, and that is the Sony Walkman a 4GB MP3 Player (model NWZ-E463). You can find these at just about $80 and you will be delighted at the sound that this puts out. We found ours at Best Buy...

Lightweight and sleek design

Slippery when you are not watching

First Looks: Sony NWZ-E463 Walkman Digital Media Player

 

The recently released Sony Walkman NWZ-E460 series has a 2-inch QVGA LCD screen and comes in six different colors. It's not just a music player; it plays videos and photos too. Let's take a closer look.

Sony NWZ-E463

 

The colourful 4GB MP3 player that'll scan through your songs to find out whether they're for rocking out, or chilling out, to.

Funky look ; Decent bundled earphones ; Packed with oddball extra features

Non-expandable memory ; Proprietary connector

Format support is reasonable, including WMA, AAC and WAV on top of MP3, but without lossless FLAC or APE compatibility it can't claim to be a real audiophile player. The NWZ-E463 does support photos and some video files, but thanks to the tiny screen...

Sony NWZ-E463

 

Although more and more people are switching to their smartphones for digital music, a dedicated player still makes a lot of sense. The Sony NWZ-E463 is the latest MP3 player to take on the Apple iPad, and it does so in distinctive style. Whether it'll...

Although the specs are slightly underwhelming, the Sony NWZ-E463 has one major ace up its sleeve – battery life. You'll be able to run it for over two full days, giving it a huge advantage over smartphones. Sony NWZ-E463 is tagged with Sony NWZ-E463,...

Broke within 3 months

 

Well, I liked this player, good sound, until it suddenly was stuck in the "hold" mode. No matter what I would do, even resetting or updating the firmware, it still remained in hold mode making the unit useless. Piece of junk

good sound

broken within 3 months

Consumer review by: PurpleRage (sony.com)

If you want music, it's awesome.

 

If you're not really up to spending a lot to get a more fancy iPhone or something, getting a Walkman is the best choice. It's affordable for somebody who doesn't want to chuck out money to listen to music on the go. It's great to listen to music with,...

Easy to use, equalizer, speed control, lyrics, affordable

Could use more file compatibility, water sensitive, not too special
