Sony Walkman NWZ-S639F MP3 player review

 

Say "Walkman" and you probably now think of the Sony Ericsson phones, but Sony hasn't stopped making dedicated music players. Can the NWZ-S639F make you want to dump your current MP3 player? We get listening to find out. Small and tall, the Sony...

SensMe, FM radio, sound quality, headphones

Screen is too small for video

With a good sound, small design and drag and drop freedom the NWZ-639F has plenty going for it

Sony Walkman NWZ-S639F 16GB

 

Stu takes a look at Sony's Walkman NWZ-S639F and is left feeling rather impressed!

While the most demanding audiophiles could do better, the S-Series Walkman has the edge on Apple's Nano when it comes to sound quality and value. Compact players don't get much better than this.

Sony NWZ-S639F review

 

A glance at the spec sheet of the new Walkman had us all a quiver. Here was a 16GB player cheaper than the equivalent iPod Nano and yet, on paper at least, better in almost every way. What's happened to the overpriced Sony of old? Goodness knows, but...

Sony NWZ-S638F (8GB)

 

The S-series Walkman is the perfect ultra-portable for the Apple agnostics

Compact design; extremely capable audio; brilliant (though small) screen; support for iPlayer

That darned nano

Sony NWZ-S639F

 

The best of the rest - though we doubt that will satisfy Sony

Slim and solid ; bright, detailed screen ; poised sound ; Napster freebies included

Not the drive or detail of some rivals

Sony NWZ-S639F

 

Slim, stylish and simple. But that's enough about us. The Sony NWZ-S639F is aslick MP3 player with equally slick audio

Stunning audio quality. Good looking player.

The screen's too small to watch video comfortably. No Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

Sony Walkman NWZ-S639F 16 GB

 

I bought this as an upgrade to my Sony Noise Cancelling NWZ738 which I was using as my Rhapsody to go player -- now it is my wife's Rhapsody To Go player. The Walkman X has performed admirably as a replacement. It syncs flawlessly with Rhapsody and has...
