The X Series is beautifully designed. It comes in a stunning graphite finish, with aluminium buttons and is built to feel slim yet solid.

Stunning 3” OLED widescreen
The X Series has a 3-inch touch panel OLED widescreen which produces clearer and more vibrant images than any other portable media player. It means you can view your favourite movies, YouTube clips or photos in all their glory.
Images look truer and brighter because OLED technology lets you see a wider range of colours. OLED offers a faster response time than standard LED screens which makes it great for watching sport or action packed movies. A high contrast ratio and 180 degree viewing angle means you’ll always see crisp, clear images. Plus OLED uses far less power than standard LCD displays meaning battery life is significantly improved.
Unmatched sound quality
The X Series is the best sounding WALKMAN® to date. Four audio technologies give you an unrivalled sound experience that closely matches what was originally recorded.
S-Master audio technology, currently used in high-end HiFi equipment from Sony, lowers distortion to keep the sound clear regardless of your volume settings. Digital Sound Enhancement Engine cleverly restores some of the high frequency signals that are lost during MP3 compression. Clear Bass gives you a deep, rich bass without distortion. Clear Stereo technology ensures that the sound does not leak from either channel.
Premium in ear headphones are included to ensure that all the audio technologies are maximised for the best possible listening experience. All this makes you feel like you’re with your favourite band in the studio - or experiencing a live orchestra in a concert hall.

Built-in noise cancelling
Because there is nothing more powerful and immersive than great music, Sony has also added Digital Noise Cancelling to the X Series WALKMAN®. Cancelling out up to 99% of ambient noise, you are left to enjoy nothing but the enhanced sound of your favourite tracks.
Noise Cancelling is built in to the X Series so there is no need for separate batteries or the hassle of charging noise cancelling headphones. The X Series even lets you choose your environment and includes an external input mode and adaptor for listening to in-flight entertainment systems.
For added convenience, the X Series can be controlled in two ways - from its touchscreen or by dedicated buttons on the top. This means it’s easy to operate when it’s in your pocket without having to look at the display and you can adjust the volume or change songs easily.
Easy scrolling makes finding
music and videos easy
Next generation video
Another great video feature of the X Series is chaptering. The X Series will analyse the video you are watching and create several chapters – similar to chapter selection on most DVDs - so you can quickly and easily get to the place you want.
The X Series scroll function lets you select the playback start point of your videos and can be used to browse through your album cover art to find your music. Scrolling also works on BBC iPlayer content, which you can watch on your X Series. Choose from over 400hrs of your favourite BBC programmes every week.
The X Series has full Wi-Fi connectivity so you can browse the web, search for music, download podcasts or watch clips from YouTube™. You can also download podcasts automatically to the X Series with a few simple touches of the screen. It’s the easiest way yet to get podcasts onto a WALKMAN®. Just select the podcasts you want and then how regularly you want to download them.
The X Series also lets you link from the music you are listening to straight to videos on YouTube. It’s simple to use. Simply click on the artist and then Direct Link to YouTube, to see videos of that artist or song.

Neat, tidy, clear - visually and sonically but it doesn't always play back the video soundtrack at all, leaving you frustrated and bewildered. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Mr D Chapman
My wife bought this as a Christmas present for me.
It is brilliant and I believe the sound quality is far better than her i pod.
I bought the 16gb version three years ago as an update from a 20Gb iPod classic. Whilst the OLED screen and touch operations were a welcome step up, the improvement in sound... Read morePublished on 28 April 2012 by Neil

As others have said, the sound quality leaves the gimmicky ipod trailing and all round class makes it money well spent. Read morePublished on 22 July 2010 by Mr Withnail
