Summary: I love Sony products, but this item takes a hit. The previous reviewer was correct about that dongle to charge the wireless headphones. Sony designers dropped the ball on this item, which is why they no longer sell it. Oh, well, I learned and was fore warned by a previous buyer. With the exception of that dongle, the MP3 player works beautifully. I can listen, advance, rewind stop and start and adjust the volume with ease.
Summary: The deal with this Walkman is the Bluetooth headphone. It cost 50% of price I paid for the player! Player is nice, small and light for workouts. The sound over Bluetooth is nice and clear. I love you can use its memory space as a hard drive and you can play the music by folder browsing option (not even possible in the android smartphones). I did not install any software for it! The only complement is that the wired ear bud fall apart after 9 months of use.
Summary: Once upon a time, in a land far away lived a guy who loved Sony with all his heart. He felt like there was no reason to have anything else than Sony. So he went out and bought a TV (Sony), a DVD player (Sony), Camcorder (Sony), Game Console (Sony), MP3 Player (Sony), First, Second, and Third computers (Sony), First, Second and Third digital cameras (Sony), he even bought a new alarm clock (SONY).
Summary: Fabuloso! Ya tenia otro walkman desde hace 3 años, llego un momento que no sirvio mas, y compre este (nueva generacion) totalmente enamorada de el!! Como siempre Sony, GENIAL!!! / Fabulous! I had another Walkman for 3 years, came a moment that served no more, and buy this (new generation) totally in love with him! As always Sony, GREAT!
Summary: If you want an easy to navigate touch screen this isnt for you, it uses the wheel method, cycling through menus. The Bluetooth headphones are the true value, and the fact it pairs easily with any bluetooth speaker, my wife uses it for runs and then with a bluetooth speaker in the house. It has a great quality feel to it, heavy, solid. This is a great value in my opinion! We have had no issues, and it has even been dropped a couple times. The sound is amazing.
Summary: This mp3 player ia great for what I needed it for , which was the gym. I really love the wireless headset, and the sound on it is great. Small compact and durable the charge for the mp3 player last a while not so much for the headset. Luckily it comes with spare headphones.
Summary: I took off a single star because of a certain annoyance. Every time you turn it on, even if you have wired headphones attached, it searches for wireless headphones for a few seconds, or even longer when you don't hit cancel. I would like it better if it automatically detected if there were wired headphones plugged in. Also, if it were a little shorter, I could fit it in my coin pocket on my jeans. Still, I really like this product.
Summary: I am glad that I baught this for my daughter. But is becoming more and more difficult to find. It was makes adding music easy using usb and even bluetooth. My daughter is even able to manage her music using her Sony PlayStation 3 system to get media files with all it's information and even lyrics if availible. The bluetooth headphones are awesome and get the most use without haveing to endanger the player when doing activities.
