Conclusion: Some of the additional issues that I disliked about the MZ-E10 was the fact that it didn't come bundled along with a top quality pair of earphones. Perhaps it was a matter of cutting down cost? Yeah I may be nit picking here but whatever the reason was, I felt that Sony could have just done a wee bit better here. Next is the battery recharging issue. Sure, the 10th Anniversary player can be a quite a marathon performer.
