The ultimate MP3 player.
This little player gives me all in one access to my favorite music. I can run a playlist from my local music on the Walkman, or play music from my Amazon Cloud account, or my favorite - listening to Pandora via wifi, while not burning through my cell phone's data plan.
It's small enough to drop in my pocket while mowing the lawn and just large enough to make use of the touch screen interface.
The built in speaker is a great addition for the occasion that you don't want to be plugged in, or you simply want to share what you're listening to. The FM radio is a bonus for listening to the ballgame.
Since it's built on the Android OS, you can get email, play games and the like, but I prefer a little bigger screen format for those tasks.
If Sony would only give up on the proprietary connector and move to standard USB. *sigh* (You can charge it from a USB source, though).
SUMMARY: Sounds great. Couple small complaints. Would buy again if lost.
IF YOU WANT A CHARGER FOR IT, Sony doesn't sell one. The charger from the Ipad 4 works well (attached to the Sony's special cable).
* This sounds better than any other mp3 player I've heard. With 320 mp3s, I hear details I didn't hear before. As odd as this may seem, I actually enjoy music more with this player. The sound is very smooth. Haven't tried it much with other audio formats, 16-44 WAVS are maybe a hair better than 320 mp3s but with this device the mp3s are good enough for me.
* The equalizer is great -- you can set up two presets of your own, and that includes setting the bass boost (Clear Bass) where you want it. The player also sounds good without eq, but it's nice to add bottom for certain styles.
* I've had no problems getting mp3s into the player from Windows XP -- drag and drop, the computer sees the Walkman as an...
I have bought this device to upgrade my good ol' X series Walkman. At first I was very pleased with the sound of this Walkman, which was fantastic. It really blew my previous Walkman out of the water. Yet I never liked the ergonomics and build quality of new Walkman. Walkman X was more intuitive, had better OS, was easier to operate one hand, it had better grip and overall build quality. I scratched metal on this one quickly. Also Android which I generally like is not very good for the media player. All ended up very sadly - my new player got into the rain and stopped to charge from USB cable. It worked while it had some charge in its battery. I took it authorized repair center here in Russia and the answer is depressing - the device is FUBAR. My current position is to buy only waterproof devices in future.
UPDATE Player is still alive after motherboard cleaning with 100% ethanol.
