Summary: I love Sony products however this is primarily a music device and I use it primarily for audiobooks. It will play WMA (DRM) which is hard to find in a audio player. Bookmarking is complicated. Books are downloaded into your music file and it is hard to find your book.
Summary: This was the last Sony walkman version that had speakers around. Was very helpful during recording and playback. When we purchased it, the product cost around $100, but it's no longer available new for less than $200 now, mainly because Sony has a newer (and poorer) version, and has gotten rid of...
Summary: My wife got this for me for Christmas in 2009. I have since put this little thing through hell. I work in a -30 degree freezer and it stays in my hoodie pocket (which is under two other layers) and it keeps going. Not to mention the 13 hours of running it does when i take it to work.
Summary: This is a great little player. It's small and very lightweight (I used to have a bulky I-Pod 160GB). One of my favorite features is the speakers. While they won't provide the sound for your next party, they are perfect for playing on the nightstand or walking around the house with the player in your...
Summary: I got this to replace a lost Samsung P3 Palm Theater MP3 player, so the review here primarily focus on the sound quality of the Sony Walkman S-series as compared to the Samsung. In this regard, the Walkman S-series delivers impressive sound across the frequency range.
Summary: I traded my iPod Touch in because of the horrible spyware I had to install on my computer (iTunes.) I had read in a review of the Sony Walkman that their software was even worse than iTunes but it was NOT necessary to install their (Sony's) software on ones computer.
Summary: Do not even consider this for audiobooks. No bookmarks nor fast forward/back feetures make this a total dud replacement for my recently departed Creative Labs Zen. Not a total money loss, as I can give it to my pre-teen for music/video playback. sigh.
Summary: I have had my Sony Walkman MP3 player since September 2010, and it continues to keep me satisfied with its capabilities and quality. The sound quality out of this unit as far as I am concerned is excellent, once paired with a set of decent quality earbuds (the ones that are included aren't anything...
Not perfect, but better sound quality than iPod Nano
1 May 2011
Summary: I'd give this 3.5 stars if I could, but I've rounded up to 4 because of the great sound quality (which is very important to me). I've been using iPod Nanos for years. But the scroll wheel wasn't working out so hot at the gym.
