Sony E-Series Walkman

 

The Sony E-Series Walkman is a great value. It's an excellent option for anyone looking for an easy-to-use MP3 player with a pocketable design, a long battery life, handy features, and solid sound quality.

The Sony E-Series Walkman is very competitively priced and features a compact design with a nice, bright screen. It's easy to use and offers a variety of desirable extras, such as an FM tuner, a user-customizable EQ, and support for Rhapsody To Go and...

The Sony E-Series Walkman tops out at 8GB and doesn't offer memory expansion. There's no integrated podcast support, and subscription-content syncing is slow.

Sony NWZ-E436F Walkman (4GB, black)

 

It can't be avoided: any new MP3 player is in direct competition with the Apple iPod, and device manufacturers are well aware of this fact. Some pack their players with boatloads of extras, while others create unique and purportedly useful design...

A slim, intuitive portable media player.

 

A fairly impressive portable media player, the Sony Walkman NWZ-E436F doesn't do anything incredible and it has a few niggling issues but its combination of good quality video playback and intuitive interface make it a viable choice.

Intuitive menu, slim design, good LCD screen

Cannot record from radio, can't make playlists on the unit itself, no voice recorder

Sony Walkman NWZ-E436F

 

Packing in all the features you'd expect from a modern media player, Sony's NWZ-E436F is a very solid unit.

Sony Walkman NWZ-E436F 4GB

 

Stuart listens to and watches Sony's Walkman NWZ-E436F. Is he impressed?

There's no difficulty in scrolling through via alphabetized lists for album, artist, genre etc. to find individual tracks, and if all else fails you can always search folder by folder. The only fly in the ointment is, as in the last generation, that...

Sony NWZ-E436F Walkman review

 

The Sony E-Series Walkman is an excellent option for anyone looking for an easy-to-use MP3 player with a pocketable design, a long battery life, handy features, and solid sound quality

Cheap ; Easy to use ; Desirable extras such as an FM tuner, user-customisable EQ and support for Rhapsody To Go and Amazon Video On Demand ; Great sound quality

No memory expansion ; No integrated podcast support ; Subscription-content syncing is slow

We recommend swapping in your favourite pair of headphones, as the stock earbuds sound just decent and may not be comfortable for everyone. Videos and photos look bright and crisp on the small screen, and viewing angles are good, though the screen is...

Sony NWZ-E436F

 

The Sony Walkman NWZ-E436F is great player with easy controls but the real standout is the a powerful long-life battery.

Excellent Sound ; Simple & Easy to Use Interface ; Excellent Battery Life ; Easy Navigation

Average Earphones ; Average Screen

The E436F is one of the better sounding players in the top 5. The player uses a simple and good looking interface and has phenomenal battery life.

Sony incorporated as Tokyo Telecommunication Engineering Company during 1946. The company on the record renamed itself to Sony during 1958 and the first Sony product was pocket transistor radio which sparks off the technology industry and its...
