Summary: I have owned several Sony Discmen. This Discman, the most recent that I bought, has all of the features that I wanted, except one, the most important one--good sound. This Discman in fact sounds worse--muddier, weaker, more distorted--than other Sony units costing one-third the price of this unit. This Discman is among the most disappointing purchases I have ever made.
Summary: this product has excellent build quality and features. the aluminium case is very sturdy and the headphone 'remote' is layed out well. HOWEVER! i have never heard such a terrible sounding discman before. the music came out very muffled in the low end and a little distorted at times. i would not recommend this.
Summary: This is such an amazing portable CD!!! It is evrything a portable CD player should be. It's very light compared to other P.C.D.Ps and it has excellent design. Anyone with a beautiful CD player would be happy to show it around. Okay, now for the sound quality: just excellent. The bass sound is very very rich, plus this one allows you to switch modes; normal, rich bass (mode 1), and very rich bass (mode 2).This is a feature that not many P.C.D.P.s offers and mine is set...
Summary: This is my 2nd player and it sounds so bad. I plugged this thing through Creek OBH-11 Headphone amp to my HD580 and god it sounds soooooo dull. I m now thinking about a way to get rid of this.
Summary: December 25th 2003 I had extremely high expectations upon ordering this cd player and was waiting anxiously for Christmas to arrive. Upon trying out the cd player this morning, I encountered it to be quite complex for the normal personal. There are several things you must connect such as the remote and the headphones to the remote. It may seem a little complicated, but once mastered, this Sony player is great to use with its many features.
Summary: I have had this CD player about six months and I am pleased with my purchase. The portability is excellent, the rechargeable batteries are convenient, and Sony's G-Protection system is unshakeable. I often listen in my car and no bump has ever made it skip yet. How does it sound? First, the headphones that come with it are kind of lame: little bass without the bass-boost function, and muffled sound.
Summary: Previousely to trying the D-EJ985, I owned a D-ES55, which was manufactured about five years ago and was large enough to house electronics that could provide clear and strong bass output. The D-EJ985, however, is very small and cannot give any bass clarity. The sound was terrible and I returned my unit. I'd rather spend the money to have my D-ES55 repaired. Anyone hoping for clear bass notes will try another player. LISTEN BEFORE YOU BUY!
Summary: I am not really rating on the item as a whole because I use it just to copy music to my MD Player. This thing rocks. It plays all my CD/CDRs/CDRW audio cds. With the optical cable and my NetMD recorder, the tracks are properly indexed (Except for hiddle tracks at the end the cds, the silence throws it off). With a CD with no music breaks, all tracks were properly indexed. I love this thing for my MD Player.
Excerpt: Ah the old fashioned sony Walkman. . . . . . . . . . . Once upon a time the Walkman's were cool small stylish and the latest trend. In to days world there under the book shelf and forgotten. This sony walkman was once my birthday present. The walkman can still be used on long journeys this one has very good listening quality and is very quiet when used. (UNLIKE MY MATES WHOS CHUGS ALONG).
