Sony W-Series Walkman 2GB, black

 

There's more than one way to make a wireless MP3 player, and building it right into a set of water-resistant headphones is an excellent way to do that and ensure that it's ready to hit the gym right out of the box. This is the route Sony took with its...

The Sony W-Series Walkman offers an innovative, ultracompact design that incorporates an MP3 player into a pair of earbuds. It's easy to use and Sony includes a unique feature for browsing songs.

The Sony W-Series Walkman does not have a screen and will not be comfortable for all users.

If you're looking for a sweat-resistant, all-in-one solution for rocking out at the gym, the Sony W-Series Walkman will provide just that.

Sony Walkman NWZ-W202

 

Sony is never afraid to experiment with its personal audio line, and the results sometimes can be baffling (witness the PFR-V1 Personal Field Speaker). But they can be inspiring, too: Take the 2GB Walkman NWZ-W202. This $69.99 (list) MP3...

Unique, wearable design. Fits securely. Earphones offer strong bass. Easy to control. Preview feature lets you easily surf your tunes

Available only in 2GB capacity. No screen or FM radio. File support is limited

Ideal for the gym, Sony's simple NWZ-W202 delivers quality audio from a reasonably priced portable media player-earphone combo.

The Sony W-Series Walkman is the lattes addition to the Sony achievement and it really is!! The features are very much user friendlier and the same is the case with the size as the player is too compact which comes for the goodment of the users. Above...

I feel that after putting so many unique features, the Sony guys have just accidently forgot to add the function of screen to the device, which could have played a vital role

:A walkman of Sony and in this rate is a bonanza offer. Also the features of the walkman are quite attractive and easier. It's a fabulous offer, so if you are interested in having the finest and purest walk man for the recreation and pleasure of yours,...

Sony Walkman NWZ-W202

 

The perfect portable music player?

A well-designed MP3 system for active pursuits, offering decent sound quality and intelligent controls. For gym use, jogging or dirty work, it's hard to find anything better.

Sony Walkman NWZ-W202 review

 

This nifty Walkman packs 2GB storage into some rather large headphones. So, has Sony come up trumps or made itself look a chump?

A novel idea for a sporty MP3 player, expertly executed. Only the slightly harsh sound lets it down

Sony NWZ-W202

 

A novel idea, expertly executed. They're a restless bunch at Sony

Unique design is brilliant for listening during exercise; sound is upfront and punchy

Can sound unnatural; not discreet
