Summary: The sound quality is superb. The earbuds that come with the player are very high quality, and the same noise-canceling Sony earbuds run for $99 retail. If you'd rather use your own earbuds or headphones, they work just fine but you lose out on the noise canceling feature.
Summary: The player itself is great. Pros- long battery life great sound graphic equalizer album icons files are searchable by song, artist, album, release year. the noise reducing headphones help on trains, busses, etc. It has a built-in FM tuner!
Good Walkman if the noise-canceling part is not your top priority

Summary: I own the not noise-canceling version of the Sony Walkman, which I love. Because where I work is turning into a very noise place I decided to give the noise-canceling sony a try. I am sorry to say I am very disapointed.
Sony Walkman NW-S7xx Series - Great hardware/sound - NO MAC SUPPORT - No drag & drop - Junk software

Summary: The NW-700 series are a great bargain right now for people who want great quality in-ear noise blocking/canceling audio. The requirement that SonicStage software needs to be used to put files on the player is the absolute worst thing about this great hardware device.
Excerpt: Bit of a mixed review. Bought this mp3 player bout 6 months ago, I'll start with the good points, Amazing sound and battery life, easy to use software and really 2gig as it condenses tracks to atrac. Bad points wont affect you if you use mp3 player frequently..
Excerpt: Bought this to replace an old network Walkman that I had managed to kill by getting it covered in sweat on a regular basis. Purchased Jan 07 (late Xmas present for myself) for £90; slightly more expensive than most other 1GB players but I like Sony.
Excerpt: This is my 3rd MP3 player and by far the best. I started off by buying cheap ones from supermarkets, just to see what they were like, but soon realised that cheap ones will not last or perform well.
