Sony Walkman NWZ-E360


My sons had a walkman with a touch screen, that did noting for me at all. One had to tap it so often and if you had to view the options, will you better be patient. Then I got this one. Easy to operate, buttons that work very easy and extremely easy to adjust when jogging. Easy to charge, as all one needs is a USB port plug. Very user friendly. 8GB, I haven't even filled it yet. One is amazed at how much music can be downloaded to it.

Sony S-Series Walkman Video MP3 Player, 16GB, Black


For the most part I like it a lot. It is a little big and a little weighty. It could use a clip for a belt or pocket. The other minor thing was the headphones. The ear buds are made of hard plastic...a little hard on the ears.

Best Bang for your Buck


I bought this to replace a Zune which I loved but died on me. I refused to buy an overhyped Ipod so I bought this mp3 player and I absolutely love it! The battery life is amazing. I can listen to it for days without charging (and I do mean days). This...

Awesome Product!!!


This Sony Walkman MP3 8GB (in my opinion) is the BEST for synching music via Windows Media Player, Rhapsody and Napster. I love the new feature: it is much larger than the older versions and the SOUND IS INCREDIBLE (Note: I use a SONY MDR-G57 headphone...

Good choice


I recently ordered this for my wife. It was a little bigger than we were expecting but the built in speakers more than makes up for it.

Gift for my son. The player is tough enough to go with him skateboarding and survive, that was enough for me to recommend this as a great buy!
