Sony Walkman NW-A105 review: Built for music lovers


You don't need a dedicated music player for listening to music but if music affects your life in an intangible way, you will want the Sony Walkman NW-A105.

Great audio quality ; Compact and premium build ; Access to Android apps

Sub-par battery life ; Laggy user experience ; Expensive

Top quality music performer


I bought a ‘cheap' music player and found that it's Bluetooth simply wouldn't drive my Bose speaker. I sent it back and got this. The menus are intuitive and I soon got to grips with it. It took me a minute to realise that I needed to download software...

Very neat and compact.


Had the NW A105 for 2 weeks. The Sony PC software isn't the most user friendly but once I copied the 168Gb of FLAC files, the player is a perfect CD jukebox the size of a credit card. Played through wired Sennheiser 280 HD Pros the sound is excellent....

Great product but schooling battery life


I brought the nw-a105 a few weeks ago to replace the I pod I was using, the nw-a105 is a perfect replacement but the battery life is shocking even after following Sony's advice on battery life. Fix the battery issues and it will be a must have MP3 player.

Fabulous piece of kit with one exception


It's superb, great sound quality and easy to use for both streaming services and downloading your music collection from a pc. The one downfall is it's battery life, as many mention. If you're both streaming and using bluetooth the battery % drops...
