Sony Walkman NWZ-B162 review

 

Sony's NWZ-B162 Walkman is a long, slim MP3 player around 9cm long but just 23mm at its widest point. It comes in a variety of snazzy colours (we're particularly taken by the blue one, pictured) and has a sturdy clip that makes it easy to attach to...

The NWZ-B162 charges quickly and clips to clothing securely but it's fiddly to use and offers no advantages over rivals from Apple and Sandisk

Cheap and cheerful, this sub £30 player gives hours of playback from a 90 second charge.

Affordable ; Fast charging

Naff shuffle mode ; Fairly low volume

Sony NWZ-B162

 

The Sony NWZ-B162 is a tiny MP3 player, offering all you'll ever need for under £30. With 2GB of storage space, it'll never challenge fully-fledged iPods, but it's a great solution for the daily commute or a quick workout in the gym. The good The Sony...

Although you can listen to music easily enough on your smartphone, it drains the battery life and threatens to leave you without a phone when you need it most. The Sony NWZ-B162 is a great solution, proving incredibly cost effective, and doing...

Great value for money!

 

I received this as a birthday gift as I had wanted an mp3 player for ages. As I use it for going to the gym I attached the clip for hands free use (included) and was also pleasantly surprised at the excellent quality of sound. I was also impressed by...

Good but not perfect.

 

I bought this because I listen to audiobooks when out walking/working in the garden and it works perfectly, restarting exactly where it left off despite being powered off/recharged etc. My only criticisms are the buttons on the side of the device which...

Sony Walkman NWZ-B162

 

I am not a technophobe. I bought this player to replace an older one of a similar design which had seen very good service. I chose this one because I wanted one which was similar to operate and I am not disappointed. It is very easy to use all the...

I don't use it for music. I am learning to speak French and have put a lot of French language discs onto it. Using the earphones the volume is OK, but I want to use it with a mini-speaker system and find that the volume could do with being louder. I...
