Sony NWZ-B105F ( 2GB, black)

 

There will always be a place in the world for a small, affordable, durable, intuitive MP3 player with great sound quality--witness Sony's gym-worthy NWZ-B100F series. Available in 1GB ($59) and 2GB ($79) capacities, the NWZ-B100F is an ideal choice for...

The Sony NWZ-B100F's fitness-friendly design, high-fidelity sound quality, built-in USB plug, and FM tuner make it an ideal MP3 player for active people.

The Sony NWZ-B100F can't handle photos, videos, line-input recording or Audible audiobooks. Also, the three-line display is difficult to read, battery life is only average, and the cap for the USB plug is easy to lose.

If you're looking for an affordable, utilitarian MP3 player to take on the road or to the gym, the Sony NWZ-B100F is a solid solution with awesome audio quality.

Sony NWZ-B105F Review and Prices

 

Sony's newest entry-level player is one of the simplest and most straightforward portable players around. Free of bells and whistles (and video screens) this little player is a real workhorse, perfect for road warriors of all stripes. Part of Sony's...

The FM tuner, quick charging capability and lack of cords really sets the B105 apart

Small buttons and controls slightly difficult to use

It has finally arrived. For years now we have reviewed Sony MP3 players; players that provide good functionality, great audio and come in stylish desi...

No SonicStage, Intuitive menu with ID3 sorting

Slightly flat sound that requires some equalization, No support for DRM encrypted WMA

Sony's NWD-B103F is another solid Sony digital music player which is only made stronger by Sony's decision to finally abandon its proprietary software.

With some welcome innovations and improvements, is the NWD-B105 the milestone product Jon was hoping for?

I reviewed barely a month ago. Like that player, it looks more like a tube of lipstick than a sophisticated piece of technology. It has the same, small, three-line colour TFT and comes in a similar assortment of colours. But there are improvements.

In hindsight, Sony's mistakes in the portable music market seem jaw-droppingly obvious: the company didn't even bring out an MP3-compatible Walkman until 2004, and even then clung doggedly onto its impressive but niche ATRAC format and - even worse -...

A basic MP3 player, but well designed and easy to use, and all for a reasonable price price.
