Built in Obsolescence

Mark N Garland, Amazon
20 November 2012
  • Summary: It seems that we all accept built in obsolescence as part of buying technology these days, especially when it's softened by the fact the new laptop, phone etc has improved in the 1 to 2 years since we bought the original. 1- 2 years, I wish! Like many people I have been dealing with Amazon for the vast majority of my online purchases for years; from sports good, electronics, xmas and birthday gifts to name but a few. Now I may have to find another retailer.

Serious Flaws detract from good audio quality

Christopher Kosseff "Chris", Amazon
5 July 2012
  • Summary: Having tried Sansa MP3s and IPods, I was hoping to have a better audiobook experience with this Sony. The audio quality is fine, the bluetooth headset works well, but the odd arrangement with the cord and the need to have a cheap plastic cover for the controls on the bluetooth, show some rather poor engineering and detract from a pleasant user experience.

Poor volume

alanclrk, Ebay
4 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to download mp3 files from NPR radio programs and listen to them. My complaint and it is a big on for me is that the volume is poor. I have hearing aids with bluetooth capability and they are fine listening to phone conversations in an automobile but I can only hear the Walkman in a quiet room. I would not by it again.

A well-made player with a ton of cons

Zaurka, Amazon
4 April 2012
  • Summary: Cons: 1. Cannot listen to radio over bluetooth, one has to connect over regular headphones. 2. Very uncomfortable to navigate menu options (my old Sansa and previous Sony were much simpler to play with). 3. No way to delete songs from the menu/player - BIG minus. Have to do it over USB (what were they thinking?). 4. Screen got scratched right away, even though it is always in a soft pocket with nothing else in it. 5.

Can't do Bluetooth while in FM mode

Roger D. Feeley "JollyRoger", Amazon
27 December 2011
  • Summary: I'm bummed. I use my MP3 player for just two purposes: 1. I listen to radio while on my lunch break 2. I listen to music while on the plane. I use Bose noise cancelling headphones. I got this unit for Christmas and the first thing I did was pair up the BT earbuds which went really fast because the thoughtful people at Sony had already done it. When I put it in FM mode, I got a dialog box on the screen that told me that the unit couldn't do BT and FM at the same time.

Für Audible Hörbücher nicht geeignet

Roocksy, Amazon
14 October 2012
  • Summary: Das Gerät soll unsere Tochter auf längere Reisen begleiten. Dabei soll sie ihre Musik und Lieblingshörbücher anhören können. Das Problem dabei war, dass sie mehrere Audible-Hörbücher hat, die sich problemlos auf ihr älteres, wesentlich kostengünstigeres (mittlerweile leider kaputtes) Gerät abspielen ließ. Leider kam die große Enttäuschung. Audible-Hörbücher lassen sich auf Sony-Geräte wohl nicht abspielen. Da ist auch nichts zu machen.

sony walkman

basak nwz, Amazon
7 December 2011
  • Summary: Ich habs kürzlich den Mp3 Player von Sony erworben. Seriennummer ist : nwz s764v Ich liste erstmal die positiven Eigenschaften auf, da ich der Meinung bin, dass die Negativen bei diesem Gerät herausstechen. Dieses Gerät hat eine super Akkulaufzeit, ich benutze es regelmässig und muss nur alle 2 Wochen das Gerät aufladen. Eine gute Übersicht im Menü. Man hat schnell den Überblick und ist schnell mit dem Gerät vertraut.
