Review: Sony NWZ-W252

 

What other improvements has Sony made to the new W-series Walkman other than adding water resistance?

Ultracompact design; easy to use; Zappin feature is great for browsing through songs

No screen; not comfortable for some users

If you're looking for a sweat-resistant, all-in-one solution for rocking out at the gym, the Sony W-Series Walkman will provide just that.

"very good"

 

I just bought today, I haven't done my jogging with it yet, but so far I love it, I will use it even when I don't do sport so much it is comfortable. It's a bliss not to be encumbered with a mp3 player in the pocket! Also, it's so cool to wear -^_^-

light, confortable, decent sound quality, easy to use

no fast foward, can't close it around my large neck
