Have used it for several months now and I have to say that Sony makes the best MP3, it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of an Ipod but then all I want it for is reliability and to play music. I put the music on then stuff it in my pocket, it does the job very well. I find the interface to be well laid out, the brightness settings work great for a sunny day, and being able to have FM radio is just a bonus. I have paired it with the Sony Earbuds Extra Bass and it thumps awesome, it allows me to adjust it to just the right amount without causing me to have hearing loss in my old age. I listen to a lot of different genres and I find they all sound fantastic. There is an equalizer with different settings so you can fine tune the music to your taste. The screen really isn't big enough to watch a movie on it but then that is not what I bought this for, I bought it for music and eBooks and it does the job perfectly. The battery capacity is outstanding, I have never run it down in one full day. Well done Sony, its great to see the Walkman tradition is still alive and well!

Just bought my new one and I am hating it. Almost every aspect of it is poorer than my last two walkmans and for the same price. I would've loved to just rebuy my old one but they've discontinued it. For one, it's smaller than my last one (smaller screen, bigger text and more pixelated graphics) and the tiny screen is pretty irksome considering this isn't exactly a cheap, generic mp3 player. Maybe because they got rid of the hold button but the buttons are harder to use (snapping down instead of sinking down if that makes sense) and I don't know how else to say it but the buttons resist your fingers- it's just irritating to use. There is also an increased reaction time when you press the buttons which pretty much shocks me. It takes almost a second for your music to start playing once you press play from pause. It is such a decrease in quality, I do not understand. The option to set your background is gone and replaced with the option to have a strange screensaver which flashes with a clock every 30 seconds for like a half second. The option to prolong the turning-off time is also gone so if you like the option of lazily scrolling through a long list of music while listening to a song, well you can't. And you have to hold down the options button to both turn on and turn off the player now, which whatever, it's just an extra button you have to constantly go through. And in that line, to turn it off you have to both pause the song and hold down the options button. The volume is only accessible from the now playing page (up/down arrows) which I don't mind but it might be irksome to some if they're scrolling through a long list of music and they want to actually comfortably listen to music while they do so. And I just realized there is no sound recorder on it anymore which is really inconvenient as I'd gotten used to recording little voice messages on it. In the place of the recorder is now the clock- i.e. you have to go through multiple buttons now to take a look at the time. And the lowest brightness setting is higher than the lowest setting on my old one (the NWZ-E460). Not a big deal, but I worry it will drain my battery faster. Honestly, the only thing keeping me from taking it back and going for a cheaper, generic model is that I know from experience the Sonys will last a couple years and I like the options for customizing the sound. For all of this, I will say the sound quality is good.

Best Mp3 I've ever owned

By 

from Laceys Spring, AL 35754, USA

Comments about Sony 8GB Black Walkman MP3 Player:

I had a Walkman for 3 straight years dropping it, making it in the washing machine, and still going strong before I accidentally destroyed it. I was amazed be the equalizer, sound quality, ease of use, and storage. I love this device and will buy another to replace the broken one.

Not the best sony product.The worst.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony 8GB Black Walkman MP3 Player:

I wish I would have read these comments before I bought my new Walkman. I am very very very disappointed with this product. I happen to like my volume at a reasonable level and I know how to adjust it to my liking. This new Walkman does not allow me to do that and I am not liking it. I would not recommend this product to a friend. I am now wondering if I can get me old Walkman repaired. It got wet. Does anyone know how I can get my old Walkman repaired. I don't usually review a product on line, but this is the worst Sony product I have ever had. SMH.

Comments about Sony 8GB Black Walkman MP3 Player:

Love it. The only bad thing is that there are no docking station for it. There all for IPod. Can't understand why Sony does not offer it for it's own product.

No hold mode ?

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony 8GB Black Walkman MP3 Player:

I just bought this mp3 player to use during my fitness training and I found out in a very short time that this mp3 player practically has NO HOLD MODE ?! Ä+/-t either stops, or increases volume or skips to the next song whenever it touches a surface....and when you press that hold button to put the player in hold mode, it turns off...!? what was Sony thinking when producing this product ? ridiculous ...Oh and after a full charge and just using the playing some mp3 for about 2 hours time the battery already lost 1 bar ...30 hours of continous play ? ....really ? I really regret buying this product and wouldnt recommend it to anyone

Clumsy operation

By 

from 30067

Comments about Sony 8GB Black Walkman MP3 Player:

I was very disappointed that this model removed the sliding hold switch and separate volume control that my old NWZ-E354 had. The use of pressing and holding the option button makes stopping playback take a long time, rather than being practically instantaneous. It also has lead to hold coming off during normal activities, then volume changes (no sound, or worse yet instant deafening), or the radio tuner getting knocked off my station. The designer clearly took streamlining way too far. Surely a couple extra buttons aren't that expensive. I have also experienced the total lack of response from the user interface on multiple occasions that another reviewer has mentioned. So there is clearly a bug somewhere in the code. A plug for the micro USB connection would be a nice thing to keep that area clean. Just throwing that out for future models. I have copied/pasted this reviewer's remarks, since she is spot on with my opinions & frustrations with this product. Linna Martel, Marietta, GA

Low resolution

By 

from Mississauga, ON L5A 4C3, Canada

Comments about Sony 8GB Black Walkman MP3 Player:

I bought a player some years back and still using. But recently I bought a new player as a present. I find its resolution is lower!!! and the controls are somewhat difficult. For example the hold button. How much does it cost to have a small slide switch as it used to have??
