NWZ-S738F Walkman

 

Carrying the torch of the Walkman brand name 30 years after the first cassette Walkman was introduced, the Sony Walkman NWZ-S738F is a high-quality MP3 player. The marquee feature is noise-cancellation, which showcases the player's excellent sound and...

Great sound with noise cancellation Stylish, sturdy build

Can't use headphones with other players Screen too small for video and photos

This is a great player for audiophiles: if you like your music tweakable, clean, delivered via some creative on-board features, and in a slick, durable chassis, the well-priced Walkman NWZ-S738F is a great option. You may want to look elsewhere,...

Sony NWZ-S738F Walkman MP3 Player Review

 

Great sound with noise cancellation ; Stylish, sturdy build

Can't use headphones with other players ; Screen too small for video and photos

The NWZ-S738F is an audiophile's player, with top-notch earbuds and great sound, but it isn't the best choice for video.

Sony Walkman NWZ-S738F

 

The blah interface may disappoint some users, but on the whole, Sony's noise-canceling Walkman NWZ-S738F sounds great.

Sharp, bright screen. Built-in noise cancellation. Bundled earphones and EQ combine for an excellent audio experience.

Nonintuitive user interface is not as graceful as the competition's. Expensive compared with similar-capacity players.

Sony NWZ-S736F Walkman 4GB, black

 

Editors' note, October 23, 2008: The NWZ-638 version of the Sony S-Series does not include the noise-canceling capability featured in the other models in this series. It offers a lower price point of $149 for the 8GB version, and currently is only...

The Sony S-Series Walkman is nicely designed and has a high-quality feel; it offers a load of cool extras such as integrated noise-canceling, an FM tuner, podcast support, and a smart playlist creator. The display is bright and crisp, and the interface...

The S-Series Walkman maxes out at 8GB and doesn't include memory expansion. The packaged earbuds, which are necessary for the noise-cancellation feature, may not be comfortable for all users. There's no voice recording option.

Thanks to excellent sound quality, integrated noise-canceling functionality, and several smart music sorting options, the Sony S-Series Walkman is a superb choice for music aficionados.

Sony Walkman NWZ-S730

 

The new Noise Canceling Walkman (NWZ-S730 series) is the slimmest Walkman Video MP3 Player to date with integrated active Noise Cancellation in the device and high quality noise canceling EX headphones included in-box. The S-series Walkman players are...

Sony NWZ-S738F Walkman MP3 Player

 

With the possible exception of the Apple iPod, all MP3 players are the same, right? Think again. Sony, who all but invented portable music in a personal form with their Walkman, isn't about to surrender the field. And if you're looking for something...

Some may find the $140-$180 price tag to be on the steep side, but overall consumers will find that Sony's new S-Series Walkman is truly deserving of its price tag. How many MP3 players currently on the market can boast superb sound quality straight...

Sony NWZ-S738 Walkman

 

An excellent player equipped with noise-cancelling and a wealth of customisation options, the S738 is poised to take on the iPod Nano.

Built-in noise cancellation. Dedicated volume keys. Great sound. Fast, logically arranged menus. Heaps and heaps of tweaking options.

Nav key is a bit small. SensMe is no Genius. Noise cancellation reduces battery life.

An excellent player with meaty sound. If you're a bit over the whole iPod thing, this is a very good alternative to the Nano.
