Summary: This is the best option for all people that want hear music while run or go to work, it's comfortable, easy to use and powerful sound. The only negative thing is that you need software installed on your computer for intro songs.
Summary: I'm an avid runner who clocks more than 35 miles/week, and only use MP3 players for running. I'm disappointed that Sony doesn't make this particular model, or a subsequent similar version of it, anymore. It is ideal for a runner. The only complaints I have with it is that I don't like the "shuffle" feature. If the player is shaken rapidly, then it'll switch to "shuffle play" mode. Sony should've eliminated this feature.
Summary: i had the 1 gb version prior to purchasing this item and let me tell you, sony make products that last. i still current have the older model and will continue to use it. the only thing that sucks with the product is the sonic stage software. i hate it because it is so unstable other then that the player is great once you can work your way around the software provide.
Summary: This i ssuch a good MP3 player that i have two of them! It came with an armband and sport style headphones that don't fall out of your ears when you are running. And when not using it with the armband it slips into your pocket and no one would notice.
Summary: This the best (actually the only) walkman for sports. Nothing touches it, and I tried harder than most to work w/ the IPOD nano. Here's one for you, try running or biking and using that freaking retarded wheel to pick your songs, change, volume, etc as it is strapped to your arm.. Hope you have good insurance! Apple needs to look up these words: "tactile feedback", and "sports player".
Summary: Yes, people say wonderful things about this mp3 player. And I must agree. But the real reason anyone bought it is because they like Persona 3 (don't deny it). You can even find it if you search for Persona 3 stuff! Try it. There's no need to be ashamed. In fact, that's why I bought mine. I even hunted down the audio-technica ATH-EM700 SV headphones and had to import them. But enough about my nerdy obsessions.
Summary: some things you never understand.one is discontinuing this model.there is nothig like it in the market .compact,lightweight,sleek,cute and not to say sound quality.i am in India and has been trying to get it for last 3 months. now that i have got it i am enjoying it.sony should thing about reviving this model.i had no issues with sonic stage software.each music software has its own problems.if anyone can get one go for it.its worth it.
