Bought for my husband who listens to talking books and plays mainly. He says the sound quality is excellent and he has enjoyed using this every day. I would recommend this product and would put it at the top of the list for walkmans. Believe me, we have had many.
I wanted something simple and easy to use. This is it! The sound is good, and it is good tempered when I set it down hard.The controls are a piece of cake. When you are 85 you just want a nice easy way to listen to your favourite records. This Sony Walkman is now my very best friend.
I bought this CD player after reading many reviews on Amazon, it's a great product with a good clear sound. I do find the battery compartment a bit fiddly but it's not a big deal so far. The CD player has a function where if you stop your CD for whatever reason, it will start the music from where you stopped. I am finding this a great value for money product and thanks everyone on Amazon for your positive reviews, they do help.
This product arrives in a bubble pack so the first challenge is to extract it without damaging anything inside or outside the package. The player is neat and lightweight, functional rather than stylish. The earphones are hook-shaped and good enough for purpose; the lead is just 1 metre. The player sounds good; it has a shuffle option and choice of tone settings. Batteries are not supplied (2 x AA-size are required); mains adaptor is not supplied. Being of an age where eyesight is not perfect, I regret that the controls are tiny and black in colour against a black background.
I bought this to replace a model that I had had for 10 years and had served me well.That model was far more expensive.Unlike that model the controls and window are not on the top,nor as convenient,but I soon adapted to the new model.Perhaps the batteries are more fiddly to replace but the battery playing time is incredible [like with the previous model] so I do not need to change them often.The sound is excellent[even better than the other]:beautifully clear and detailed.The bass enhancement does not muddy the sound quality at all which is often not the case.There is an incredible amount of volume and I usually have it set at 4 whereas with my previous model I had it set at 7 and above always. This is an excellent piece of equipment and I am delighted with it.I can recommend it whole heartedly.
Simple to use; good sound although you may wish to buy better earphones. Also works well with small speakers but does get through batteries (even rechargeables) quite quickly. Best to use a power adaptor but Sony insist it should be theirs; costs extra naturally! Good value
