Sony Walkman NWZ-S710F review: Sony Walkman NWZ-S710F

 

By combining an excellent MP3 player and active noise-canceling earphones in an affordable one-two punch, Sony's latest NWZ-S710F Walkman MP3 player series takes a new approach to creating an ideal portable listening experience. Offered in 4GB ($149)...

The unassuming Sony NWZ-S710F Walkman series of MP3 player delivers a perfect storm of on-the-go features, including music, photo, and video playback; FM radio; subscription music support; remarkable battery life; heavenly sound quality; and a feat...

The NWZ-S710F lacks memory expansion, voice recording, or integrated podcast management, and if you lose the bundled headphones, you'll lose the Walkman's noise-cancellation capability as well. Sony's proprietary USB cable can be a headache to replace...

The sum of the NWZ-S710F's audio enhancement and noise-canceling features adds up to one of the most pleasant and private music experiences you can have for less than $200.

VERY slow Rhapsody file transfer

 

"The sound quality is FANTASTIC and is very pure. The noise cancelling headphones were great. I want to use this mp3 player for Rhapsody to Go. Unfortunately, the transfer times are absolutely ridiculous. I could have listened to the 4 playlists I...
