Great item

M. Fields, Amazon
11 July 2008
  • Summary: This little unit has plenty of power to give you that big stereo sound while out on the road. It's durable and handles shock very well. I don't believe this item is in production any longer so you should get it while you can. It's ultra-slim shape is made possible because of the rechargeable battery which is a flat rectangle shape. I've never seen one like it before. Be advised that this is not one of those cheap plastic units that will crack after sustained use.

Watch out for Shorts and Electric Shocks

Anne E. O'Neil "anneeo", Amazon
2 February 2004
  • Summary: I bought this and used it for a few months and then it started shorting and sending electric shocks through the headphones to my ears...like a lobotomy by discman? Electric shocks to the ears hurt A LOT. DON'T BUY THIS! I bought a similar Sony model, sucked in again by the small size, and had the same problem. So although it's little, don't get this. Their customer service is unbelievably bad, too.

As Good as My Last One After 1 Modification

Robbie, Amazon
12 July 2003
  • Summary: I own an older model as well as this new one: Sony's D-EJ825. I got it on my 17'th (?) birthday and two years later, the mechanism that snaps the lid to the base broke off. Attempts to super-glue it together proved fruitless, so with heavy heart, I looked for the updated model and found this player. I love the little stand that comes with it and the coloring of the unit itself is great because it reminds me of an Apple iBook. So visually, its a top-notch player.

Darn good player!!!

Michael T. McCormick, Amazon
3 July 2003
  • Summary: This is a very good player. Has good balance for bass, and the treble. The only drawback is the remote is not lighted, but the model above this one does, but the style is not very nice. Check this out!! You will really like it!!

  • Excerpt: ---Overview--- Having such a large collection of CD's for some people means that using Ipods or minidiscs can make a whole collection obsolete. I for one still need a discman while I'm putting songs onto the computer or saving up for that more expensive MP3 player. This is where the Sony CD Walkman D-EJ885 comes into play. There are obviously a lot of discmans on the market, but this one manages to jump out at you that little bit more.

  • Excerpt: Lets be honest if anyone just wanted a cd player, they could go out and buy one from Asda or somewhere for no more then 20 quid. But this model boasts so much more then the typical cd Walkman. Style/Look The main attraction to this product to anyone is the size and outward appearance, just look at it. Its dazzling elegant silver exterior could win anyone over. But the main selling point of course being its width.
