Summary: Although you can listen to music easily enough on your smartphone, it drains the battery life and threatens to leave you without a phone when you need it most. The Sony NWZ-B162 is a great solution, proving incredibly cost effective, and doing everything you'll ever need.
Excerpt: With the whole tech world constantly banging on about the iPod, sometimes it's easy to forget that there are other big-name brands who also make portable music players. Sony has a long history in personal audio, and still uses the Walkman brand that it made famous with its personal cassette players. Thankfully, things have moved on and Sony now offers a comprehensive range of MP3 players including the top-of-the range A-Series and the sporty, water-resistant W Series.
Pros: Compact size, nice design, on-board USB connection, decent audio, easy to use, ZAPPIN search function
Cons: Only basic functions, only 2GB memory, sound clarity is lost at high volume
Summary: Det är inte så ofta vi testar renodlade mp3-spelare nu för tiden, men då och då dyker de upp. I det här fallet är det Sony som står för fiolerna, men det visar sig att det inte finns så mycket nytt att rapportera om.
