Review: Sony NWZ-S718FBNC


Photos and words just don't do the NWZ justice. When its screen is on and the included noise-canceling headphones are in your ears, you're transported...

Mind-bending battery life will keep you entranced from San Francisco to Hokkaido. Additional noise-canceling circuitry in the player itself improves audio even more

Models max out at a wimpy 8 gigs. Screen is tiny (just 1.8 inches), so invest in some specs
