Sony Walkman NWZ-S716F (4GB, red)

 

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.

Fabulous sound, excellent ergonomics.

 

This is a product in the old school Sony tradition: Thoughtfully designed and very well made. Recommended!

Amazing noise canceling for such an inexpensive device. Excellent ergonomics and extremely rich, customizable feature set. Perfect size for a blue jeans watch pocket. Clear, bright screen. Smooth video playback. Fast charging. Nice software

Headset cord a bit too short and not easily extended due to extra contacts on connector. Shipped (intentionally) with top part of optional dock but not the dock, itself. Rather low FM sensitivity. Plays only DRM-free video

Nice Portable MP3 Player

 

I previously own NW-S703 (ATRAC Walkman) with noise cancellation. NWZ-S713 series is the right successor to this. It features all the functions like NW-S703 apart from its video and jpeg playback capability. The player produces excellent Bass due to...
