  • Conclusion: The Sony NWZ-B173 holds its own for what it offers. Sound quality is the tops, and it’s really light, making it great to carry around. For around £32 it’s a bargain. However the Sony NWZ-B173 is severely lacking in features and can be at times fiddly to use. The NWZ-B173 is a good MP3 player for those looking for something basic, with a bit of style thrown in, but it’s far from the best around.
  • Pros: The Sony NWZ-B173 is a cute MP3 player with a nice design. At about the size of a cigarette lighter it is also very compact, and more than small enough to fit into any pocket. Weighing just 28 grams you’ll hardly notice its weight when plonked in your pocket or clipped to your shirt. The NWX-B173 is also small and light enough to use when jogging or at the gym. The integrated USB plug makes grabbing tracks from a PC easy: just plug it in and then get dragging and drop...
  • Cons: A lack of features prevents the Sony NWZ-B173 from really standing out. There is no radio, and the memory cannot be extended beyond its 4GB capacity. There is also limited support for music formats beyond MP3 and WMA files. The navigation wheel can also lead to accidental music selections.

  • Summary: It’s been a while since I have looked at an MP3 player rather than an iPod. It is also a nice small unit that is smaller than most of course size and weight mean the display is tiny in comparison to some units but this is from Sony .

  • Conclusion: Il Sony NWZ-B173F è uno dei lettori più cool e trendy in circolazione, grazie anche alla vira maniacale che SOny ha messo nella cura dei dettagli stilistici (vedi clip posteriore o design Jog Dial). Le funzionalità non sono moltissime, a differenza di altri lettori di ultima generazione Sony, ma in questo device si nota una netta prevalenza dell'attenzione al cliente ed all'utilizzabilità dello stesso lettore.
  • Pros: Radio fm; Equalizzatore; Connessione USB diretta; Clip posteriore; Power illuminator; BASS Boost; Ricarica ultra-rapida
  • Cons: Display
