Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Walkman X Series 32GB

Product description
Serious about your music and video and want a portable player that delivers the best of both? Check out the X Series WALKMAN® from Sony.

The 32GB X Series has enough storage capacity for up 8,000 songs or 120 hours of video. The X Series offers unrivalled features and incredible audio and visual quality and supports a vast range of formats including MP3, WMA, LPCM, AAC, AVI, WMV and more so you can play a range of tracks and videos, whatever the source.

Want to listen to something new? The X Series also has a built in FM tuner so you can enjoy your favourite radio stations to on the move.

The X Series is beautifully designed. It comes in a stunning graphite finish, with aluminium buttons and is built to feel slim yet solid. With a crystal clear OLED touchscreen, integrated noise-cancellation, built-in Wi-Fi for browsing the web or watching YouTube, and support for high-quality video, it's the ultimate digital media player.

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.

Hybrid Operation
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.

WiFi connection
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.

As an avid Sony lover, I just couldn't wait for Amazon to get the X series in stock, so I rushed off to John Lewis to pick one up at full price on the very first day of release! I've owned the A808/A829/S639 as well as a Zune 80/120, a Touch 2G and a Sansa Fuze, so I have other non-Sony points of reference.

Firstly, it's beautiful, I love it to bits, and I forgive all of its flaws, of which there are many, but let's start with the good :)

Sound Quality: I just cannot fault it. It's stunning. And if you've already owned (and enjoyed), any model from the A/S/Z series, then there's no doubt that you'll love the X. I was a bit worried that the s-master digital amplifier might make it sound cold and clinical, but it really doesn't. It's warm, powerful, incredibly clear and so detailed that it makes my previous daps sound foggy in comparison! And crazy though it may seem... it really does seem to open up and sound even better after a few days use, with the soundstage becoming even more 3D.

Build Quality: It's reassuringly solid and the subtle granite effect on the sides acts as a 'gripper' so I don't have to worry about it slipping out of my hands. It's also smaller than an iPod Touch and only slightly bigger than the 808/818.

Function: Drag and drop via Explorer or sync with WMP - both methods are easy, but mass transfer speeds are quite slow, so move small batches at a time if you don't want it to freeze. The volume control is still on the side with the reset button and noise-cancelling switch, and the 'pause' 'forward' and 'rewind' buttons are on top along with the headphone socket. And unlike the Touch, it's easy to change tracks or 'pause' while it's in your pocket.

Screen: The 3-inch OLED screen is beautiful and responsive.

i'm only really interested in music - so all the 'other stuff' is pretty gimmicky as far as i'm concerned.

so, i'm very pleased there is a noticeable improvement on what was already great sound quality on the A828. The X is 'cleaner and clearer'. Although there's a glitch in the firmware that means it doesn't Repeat properly - that is, it gets to the last track in a playlist and doesn't go on to play first track, it just picks some random track from another playlist and starts playing - needs fixing.

also, there's a scroll feature that allows for scrolling of cover art. activate this from within a playlist and you'd think you'd scroll the playlist cover art, right. No. you're suddenly scrolling your whole library. I mean who checks this stuff?!

playlists are now only accessible via secondary menu and as others have comments, Now Playing is missed...

As others have commented, it's inexcusable it doesn't support a Lossless codec - one of the many, many; 'what were sony thinking?!' questions... (their shareholders are probably asking many of those type of questions right around now too)...

all-in-all, i'm please with the X 'cause for me it's about the music and quality is noticeably up -- but sony continue to bug me for their incompetence in other areas...

Sony Walkman NWZX1060B X Series with 32GB
It's got everything you could ask for in a PMP(portable media player); Music/video support for pretty much every format (besides the lossless ones), wi-fi capabilities, and a very slick touch screen interface. The sound from this thing is awesome, even with out-of-box headphones. I hate to say this to all the apple enthusiasts out there, but Sony sound really does out-do anything i've heard from any of the iPod range. It also has the FM radio, and the cover flow album scroller. (which is cool, provided your album art is the right size) The Youtube application is VERY slick, but unfortunately the player will not stream from BBC iPlayer, despite me being under the impression it was. (you have to download it your pc and then transfer it, which is such a let-down) It also has noise cancelling capabilities, which seem okay, but compared to the standalone Sony headphones you can buy, it doesn't quite drown out that much noise.

What the Sony isn't so good at is well, compared to the iPod touch,the web browser. It's basically the same as what you'd get on a WAP website for your phone. It just feels, a bit half done. It's pretty poor , and there is no extra apps/support for the player(yet). I've read rumours about extra app capability, but it depends how many people buy one I suppose.

I personally love the player for just being different.
It's touch screen interface is very responsive, and the OLED screen is very very crisp. The drag and drop software makes thing dead simple, and it'll even take songs from iTunes as well as mp3's and the like.A good, solid player that feels, sounds & looks nice.

Verified Purchase
Since Sony have priced this product at about the same level as the iPod Touch, it is inevitable that the two will be compared. What they have in common are the touchscreen interfaces, video playback and capacity sizes. After that, though, they are very different products.

In brief, the Sony is the better personal music player. The sound is better than any iPod available. The iPod Touch is the better "gadget" as it lets you add apps, games and browse the web in a relatively pain-free way. However, the iPod Touch really falls down when it comes to sound quality. The iPod Classic offers the best sound quality in the iPod line-up and is actually a cheap option now (a rarity for Apple!), but even the Classic can't compete with the sound from the Sony.

Of course, the Sony is far more expensive than the iPod Classic and only has a fraction of the capacity (32Gb vs 120Gb)... but it has solid state storage and is smaller and lighter than anything this side of a Nano. The Sony is also likely to age better. All Apple products look awful after a few years. They just don't wear well. The Sony is better built and not covered in too-scratch-sensitive materials. My iPod classic, which has never been outside its protective case, has plenty of scratches on it and I have no idea how it got them. And to my eyes, it doesn't wear those scratches well.

If an mp3/4 player with superb sound quality is your main priority, the Sony is the best option - if you can live with using Windows Media Player 11 and the Sony Media Manager software.
If outright capacity and price are your main factors, don't ignore the iPod Classic.
If it's gadget first, sound second for you - the iPod Touch is the one to go for.

I'm being totally objective here.
