To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I spent quite a bit of time trawling through all sorts of different types of MP3 players, trying to find out what's best. In the end I decided to go for the name, figuring they must be doing something right to have such a large market share!! There are so many MP3's out there, it's easy to be overwhelmed. I really only wanted a basic MP3 to listen to my music (mostly "old-school" CD's). This does that and then some. It's really easy to transfer music files to it via the computer, is slim and lightweight and battery life is excellent. Music quality is great....I'm no great expert but I like what I hear! It has an automatic volume control, which means you can't have it too loud accidentally. I did purchase the silicone sleeve that was recommended by Amazon, and this is fine but it did need a little trim so I can access the "hold" button. (Works like a keylock on a mobile phone). In short, I'm very pleased with my MP3...The controls are easy to get the hang of, it holds absolutely LOADS of data and I do love that "hold" button. Yes, it is a little pricey and there are much cheaper MP3's out there. Previously, I purchased a cheap model (by another manufacturer) for my daughter and it broke after two weeks and the controls on that were extremely odd (very hard to explain but everything seemed counter-intuitive). Not so with the Sony! (Perhaps it's because I'm from the Nokia generation, but the controls on this seem very sensible to me!) The extra money seems well worth it for this little gem and I actually replaced the faulty MP3 with another, identical one of these for my daughter. We have had no problems with them in about a year of use and they're still going strong with almost daily use.
Excellent player with very good sound, I also bought Sony EX15 inner earphones to make sure the speakers wouldn't fall out when I'm moving around. The graphics show tiny thumbnails of the albums and going through the lists of albums is very easy, it holds lots of CDs. I will definitely use this a lot more after the face mask rule has finished on the trains, when having days out on my own via trains it will keep me company. At the moment I use it at home and I am very pleased with it. You will need to install the appropriate program / app from Sony's website, this is not mentioned in the info provided with the player.
I've been using this mps3 for years now and I can say that is not a bad product at all. Some people might say that the sound is not so great but to be honest is not the product but the earphones are the problem. I know a pair of earphone comes with the package but if you want to ear in a better way, I suggested you buy some other ones.
It’s a great little music player, the sound quality is fantastic. Very easy to transfer my Itunes library over - just drag and drop from the computer.
My personal gripe is 8GB is only enough for 700 songs out of my library of 6,000+. Will happily buy this exact same mp3 player if it comes with a much larger GB size. Will look into this in the new year.
So far pleased. Bought it as a replacement for my NWZ-E443 which eventually died (battery gave up) after many years' use (six???). I use it both as an MP3 player and FM radio. To my ear, the sound is good - much better than my cheap Sandisk player. Interface was easy to adjust to. If switched off part way through a track, it resumes at the same point when switched by on (some devices do not, which to me is a big no-no). I don't use the supplied earpieces (they are one of the types which annoy me by not staying 'in'). Battery life seems fine although I've not so far been recording 'how long'. Will do so sometime and post here my findings.
This was a replacement for my husband who left the original in a pocket which then went through the washing machine!! We already knew that the sound was worthy of a much more expensive product. I've put quite a lot of albums on it now but there is a huge amount of storage capacity still to use!
i bought a walkman as the battery on my phone was wearing down, playing music on the phone just eats the battery life. the walkman arrived on time, transferred music but wouldn't work unless plugged in, i notified amazon and the sent a replacement the next day. the replacement work perfectly
