Sony Walkman NWZ-S638 (8GB, red)

 

Sony has come a long way since the release of the NW-MS11 Network Walkman. One of the company's first flash-based MP3 players, the NW-MS11 didn't even play MP3s and was crippled by copy-protection woes and painfully slow transcoding, but even back...

The Sony S-Series Walkman is nicely designed and has a high-quality feel; it offers a load of cool extras such as integrated noise-canceling, an FM tuner, podcast support, and a smart playlist creator. The display is bright and crisp, and the interface...

The S-Series Walkman maxes out at 8GB and doesn't include memory expansion. The packaged earbuds, which are necessary for the noise-cancellation feature, may not be comfortable for all users. There's no voice recording option

Thanks to excellent sound quality, integrated noise-canceling functionality, and several smart music sorting options, the Sony S-Series Walkman is a superb choice for music aficionados.

Sony Walkman NWZ-S639F MP3 player review

 

Say "Walkman" and you probably now think of the Sony Ericsson phones, but Sony hasn't stopped making dedicated music players. Can the NWZ-S639F make you want to dump your current MP3 player? We get listening to find out. Small and tall, the Sony...

SensMe, FM radio, sound quality, headphones

Screen is too small for video

With a good sound, small design and drag and drop freedom the NWZ-639F has plenty going for it

Sony NWZ-S639F Walkman review

 

Its older, larger, more expensive A-series brethren offers wireless audio and a whopping screen, but for ease-of-use, sound quality and sheer enjoyment to use, the S639F is a terrific choice. BBC iPlayer support is an awesome bonus for UK users

Sound quality ; Smart design ; Good price ; SensMe feature ; BBC iPlayer support ; Crisp screen ; Drag-and-drop file management ; Podcast integration ; Great battery life

No stereo Bluetooth ; No gapless playback ; DivX or Xvid support would've been superb

Is it an iPod nano killer? For this price, capacity and sound quality, it could be. The nano is still our favourite, but we wouldn't argue with you for choosing this over Apple's alternative, particularly if you enjoy BBC content and the fact that the...

Sony Walkman NWZ-S639F 16GB

 

Stu takes a look at Sony's Walkman NWZ-S639F and is left feeling rather impressed!

While the most demanding audiophiles could do better, the S-Series Walkman has the edge on Apple's Nano when it comes to sound quality and value. Compact players don't get much better than this.

Expert review by:

Sony NWZ-S639F review

 

A glance at the spec sheet of the new Walkman had us all a quiver. Here was a 16GB player cheaper than the equivalent iPod Nano and yet, on paper at least, better in almost every way. What's happened to the overpriced Sony of old? Goodness knows, but...

Sony NWZ-S638F (8GB)

 

The S-series Walkman is the perfect ultra-portable for the Apple agnostics

Compact design; extremely capable audio; brilliant (though small) screen; support for iPlayer

That darned nano

Expert review by:

Sony NWZ-S639F

 

The best of the rest - though we doubt that will satisfy Sony

Slim and solid ; bright, detailed screen ; poised sound ; Napster freebies included

Not the drive or detail of some rivals

Expert review by:

Sony NWZ-S639F

 

Slim, stylish and simple. But that's enough about us. The Sony NWZ-S639F is aslick MP3 player with equally slick audio

Stunning audio quality. Good looking player.

The screen's too small to watch video comfortably. No Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

iPod Killer! Freed me from being an ITunes Slave!

 

I got my first Mp3 player about 4 years ago...it was an iPod 2GB Nano. I loved it so much I shortly thereafter upgraded to a 4GB Nano. Kept that one a couple years but didn't upgrade again because I was frustrated with the iTunes interface, having to...

Stylish, Great Sound, Beautiful & Customizable Display, True "drag and drop" Functionality in Windows

Volume Control hard to reach in one handed operation, Fast Forward requires hitting the Pause button first
