Great Sound, Deep, Rich Bass, Great Headphones


This is a media-only player- It's not intended to rival the Ipod Touch- and that's why I got it. You don't have to go through too many menus in order to just find or play one song. You get external player controls- the Touch and the Zune HD don't give...

Drag & Drop File Transfer ; Can Sync with Itunes ; External Player Controls- Easy to Operate it While it's in Your Pocket ; Thin ; Good Build Quality

Really Only 14g Storage Space- about 2g used for Software ; Bluetooth Takes Very Long Time to Connect to Other Devices

Haven't taken them off


At first I was a little put off by it's shorter life span (compared to my old NWZ-S545) but it wasn't the problem I thought it would be. It still lasts long then most new mp3 players on the market. The thought I would have problems with the touch...

I have been using Sony Walkman's since the first unit came out in 1979. I have owned dozens of the Walkman brands from the first cassette Walkman to the first digital Walkman and this unit is by far the best WALKMAN they have ever made. The Touch...

Best Walkman manufactured to date!


I have been a fan of Sony MP3 Walkman's since the first 2GB models came out. The new A series has amazing sound quality that blows away all the other mp3 players in its segment. It also has Bluetooth capability which means you can send and receive...
