Sony NWZ-S638F (8GB) review

 

Sony's NWZ-S638F 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 iPod nano

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.

Sony NWZ-S639F review

 

This Sony reveals itself to be as tantalisingly close to Apple as it ever was, yet somehow unable to make up the distance, whether using the supplied

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

Not the drive or detail of some rivals

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

Sony NWZ-S639F review

 

Sony's latest iPod Nano competitor is better specified and cheaper than its rival. Can it outperform it, too?

Sony's on to a winner with the NWZ-S639F. It's the best compact MP3 player you can buy

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.
