5.0 out of 5 stars Sony WNZA865B 16GB Walkman - Black 25 Nov 2011

Sony NWZA865B.CEW Series 16GB Walkman - Black - What a lovely thing this is - I have had this now for about a month and I have come to realise that I made the right choice with this Walkman. At first I found the touch screen too sensative but after fitting a protection film to the screen it is now just right. I chose this model because it seemed to major on its Bluetooth connectability, and quite righty - not only connecting to Bluetooth headphones but also allowing bluetooth transfers in and out, which I find very handy. This is the first Bluetooth device have come acrose that allows you to prioritize Bluetooth to give either higher qualty Music or higher quality connectability via Bluetooth - this works well in practice. This Walkman comes with "Media Go" which loads onto your computer when you first connect the Walkman - it is through this that you can also transfer your Music, Pictures & Video. You can also transfer BBC podcasts through Media Go (just folow the BBC Podcast Guide). Oddly however Media Go does not transfer BBC iPlayer Programs which need to be transferred onto the Walkman by syncing in the normal way with Windows Media Player (again follow the BBC iPlayerGuide). You can also use Windows Media Player to sync Music etc if you want. All the Album Art is transferred onto the Walkman and looks realy good.The Walkman even has a Karioke option, and has alot of options to tune the sound to how you like it. I am a keen Audio Book person and I use the "Overdrve" audio book consol on my computer (available as a free download form East Sussex Libary webpage). You can tansfer the Libary's audiobook downloads onto the Walkman using the Overdive's own transfer wizard, and they work a treat. Read more ›

Firstly I would like to say 'in my opinion' IGNORE all comments about the volume cap(this nearly put me off buying this fantastic MP3 and how sad that would have been). Anyone who needs it on full volume must be deaf. I love my music loud and generally have the volume on 16/17 - it goes up to 30 !!! The sound is amazing, crisp, clear and definitely loud enough. I have waited to do my review so that it has been used in the gym, out walking and on a 9 hour flight to Florida. You probably need to increase the volume if there is background noise around you but 30 is above and beyond. I was tempted to buy this wonderful MP3 because of the reviews from people who had previously had a Creative ZEN. I have had a ZEN for as long as I can remember, the most loveable MP3 you could hope to have, but after getting a laptop could not transfer any new music to it because it was not compatible with Windows Vista,it could not be recognised and would not load the setup disk(the fixes on Creative website did not work). I was heartbroken and started the search for another MP3, perhaps is was time to update. I did not want Apple. And without going into details do not consider Creative if you are looking for your first MP3. I have always loved Sony and after reading reviews thought this was worth taking the risk. It sounded easy to use and looks so classy. I was not disappointed and am completely in love with it. It is small and slim and looks fantastic. Plugged it into my laptop and within seconds all my music and photos had transferred across. The Media Go programme that downloads from the player means any music in Media Player or ITunes is all in one place and can be easily made into playlists. I have one playlist that has about 250 tracks on it. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Sony NZWA865B - Sonic brilliance 4 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase
8 years ago when looking for my first MP3 player I decided to look beyond iPods and went for a Creative Zen Sleek instead. People questioned my judgement until they listened to it and couldn't believe how much better it sounded than their oh-so-cool iPods!
Fast forward to December 2011 and imagine my despair when I lost my beloved Zen on holiday! Of course the first thing I did was look at iPods to see how they had progressed. I almost resigned my ears to Apple when I descovered the Sony NZWA865 which was getting very positive reviews but miniscule sales figures compared to iPods. Once again my instinct told me to stray from the herd and choose the Sony. Once again people thought I'd lost the plot but sure enough they now agree that this little Sony (with the bundled earphones) walks all over iPods especially in the way it delivers sound to your ears. The clarity and depth of sound delivered is positively spine tingling. I am rediscovering tracks that I thought I knew off by heart. I'm noticing additional sounds and voices that were previously lost - not just when listening on the old Zen but my home and car hi-fi's too. The touch screen is very nice to use and the side buttons for track and volume control are very welcome (allowing you to listen in bed without disturbing your partner!). There is plenty of sound adjustment available including an equaliser. It also looks good too - better than an iPod I think.
So if you want be just one of the herd and want a jack-of-all-trades MP3 player then go ahead and join the iPod queue. On the other hand if you want an MP3 player that is a master in sound then you will be richly rewarded by the Sony. As my late father used to say - just because something is the most popular it doesn't necessarily means it's the best. Go on give it a go - it won't hurt!

Complete disaster. There is no "off" button. You can shut it down on the menu, but that just puts it into standby (where it does seem to drain). Read more
