Sony Walkman Review

 

The Sony Walkman is a great MP3 player with really good audio quality and crisp video playback. It comes in 2, 4 and 8GB capacities and supports several different types of audio files, including protected WMA files. Sony got rid of the old Sonic Stage...

Can't stand it

 

I hate it so much; I'm throwing this one away and I am done with Sony for good!

Small, not much else good about it

One AAA battery runs out fast, crippled by DRM, loses data constantly

Consumer review by:

Great Machine 1 battery - Yea!

 

Like everyone else I did a lot of research before purchasing this. I wanted something that wouldn't die after a few weeks, with decent battery life, that could withstand my inevitably dropping it. This fit the bill. I got it new from **********. I've...

TV Bands, good battery life, can stand being dropped

Annoying beeping when paused and when advancing tracks

good look, nice features but too sensible

 

I have been straightaway seduced by this player. It look is very attractive : sober style, large 3l. display, big buttons. It's just a little bit thick due to the electronics on the top and the battery which makes its a little hump. What I really like...

Elegant, very pratical and intuitive, long life time with one LR6 battery only, good sound quality, titleling function, lot of usefull options, the price

A little bit thick, cheap headphones and remote control, difficuties to read some mp3 CD

Consumer review by:

Great sound !

 

I researched Sony and Panasonic higher end cd players, so I bought both at Best Buy. By far the Sony has better and louder sound than the Panasonic and the quality of the materials blows the Panasonic away.

Clean, crisp sound; does not skip even when shaking it, quality look and feel, cranks the sound, eq is nice, comes with software, nice graphics on display

No remote, buttons too close together

Consumer review by:
