Sony NW-S205F ( 2GB)

 

When info about Sony's NW-S200 Sports Walkman leaked onto the Web back in July, I was quick to lean on the company's PR team to get the inside scoop. It took many patient weeks of waiting to get my hands on an actual review unit of the fitness-minded...

Sony's NW-S200 S2 Sports Walkman features a unique design and several fitness-friendly extras; it applies nifty uses of Sony's G-sensor technology; sound quality is excellent; includes an FM tuner.

As usual, Sony's subpar (and required) SonicStage software sullies the experience, and there's no fitness software to help you track your progress. The included earbuds are uncomfortable and won't fit all users.

The NW-S200 Walkman proves once again that Sony knows what it's doing in the hardware department; fitness-minded users should take a close look at this flash MP3 player. But make sure you're comfortable with SonicStage before you commit.

Sony NW-S203F DAP

 

The Sony NW-S203F is a sports oriented digital audio player with a built-in pedometer to help you count steps and measure distances.

A very good CD Player.

 

My granddaughter received this Sony CD player for a Christmas gift. This replaced her other cheaper one purchased at WalMart for $12.99 which stopped working. Luckily it is one that many of her friends also has. Except they chose the cheaper version ...

Very good choice.

No color selection.

Portable music players are a dime a dozen, and despite a good portion of people using them while exercising, surprisingly few players cater specifical...

Sports features such as pedometer and calorie counter, automatic playlist switching based on pace, excellent sound quality, bundled accessories, active shuffle feature, rapid recharge

SonicStage software is difficult to use, screen hard to read in direct sunlight, moving between features is fiddly due to the one-line display

For active users, this is the best all-in-one music player package

Stuff magazine

 

Sony's light-sabre aping MP3 portable packs exercise-friendly features and deftly squeezes 2GB storage space in to its super-toned shiny chassis

Better than a Shuffle, sportier than a Nano, this Sony takes a sharp bite out of Apple's portable player lead

Recommended!

Spode takes this sport orientated Sony player for a test run.

Once I had gotten over the annoyance of changing settings in the menu system, I actually quite liked this player. It's incredibly light, comfortable to wear and easy to change tracks, or get information mid-jog. The supplied headphones are good (an...

Review of Sony Walkman NW-S203F MP3 player

 

A great choice for fitness fanatics, this 1Gb player has a built-in pedometer. There's a radio function, too. Holds up to 685 tracks.

Great mp3 Player

 

First off, a note of convenience. Since I felt silly carrying it around my arm whenever I had class, I used the armband to wrap around the "ears" of my jeans so that it would act as a belt clip. Now, I've had this mp3 player for well over 2 years and...

Small, powerful sound, VERY durable

Small screen and good ol' SonicStage
