    5.0 out of 5 stars New generation player 6 Jun 2008
    This is a fantastic purchase as you can see from the other reviews here it is really going to be a hit this year.

    I personally did quite a bit of research into the latest players on the market as i dont want to give out 150pounds without being sure, and neither should anybody. Utimately when one makes the purchase, unless you have already seen it upclose, you are taking a risk. Here are my thoughts to why it is a solid purchase.

    Firstly it looks great, it is light but not plasticy, a solid build. The screen looks fantastic and really makes a positive impression during use.

    The buttons are absolutly straight forward and easy to use. More usefull though are the controls on the bluetooth headphones.

    So about those bluetooth headphones. I was unsure about the whole thing, did not really understand the technology and thought that i might get a headache from them or something. Having used them for two weeks now, i am so utterly satisfied, it would be difficult to go back to regular headphones. Of course i make a point of being aware of where i am going with them, and if i might end up at a party or something i would probably just go out with the in ear cable phones, this is because (you will knowwhat i mean soon) i have become so overly protective of the things that i want to make sure they do not get knocked and damaged, this is probably the sets only drawback, if you put these headphons in your rucksack and forget about them.........

    other than that, they are fantastic, no more messing about with cable when riding a bike, which i do alot of, there are a hundred uses. plus you can do basic navigation and volume control, so you never even have to touch the player for short periods of time. To conclude they are essential.

    4.0 out of 5 stars superb little sony bluetooth video walkman! 28 July 2008
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this Sony Bluetooth Walkman 8GB NWZ-A828K as an upgrade to an old Sony Network Walkman I have and overall I've been very impressed with it. The player is well made with an aluminium body and has easy to use controls and a bright, clear screen/user interface combined with excellent battery life.

    In the box you get both Bluetooth headphones and wired in-the-ear style headphones with different sized ear-buds for comfort and fit. The neck-band style Bluetooth headphones have a reasonable 10m range, their own mains charger and basic controls such as: volume/shuffle etc, on the right hand side earpiece. Although, I found the wired in-the-ear headphones to provide better sound quality.

    The player's default sound quality is very good and has excellent depth and definition in the mid to high range tones. I found that I needed to tweak the bass levels a little bit for my own taste and this is easy to do with numerous options available for personalising & enhancing the sound as listed below:

    Graphic Equalizer modes: None, Heavy, Pop, Jazz, Unique, Custom 1, Custom 2.(you can tweak the levels and Clear Bass in the custom modes)
    VPT Surround sound modes: None, Studio, Live, Club, Arena, Matrix,Karaoke.
    DSEE sound enhancer: on/off
    Clear Stereo: on/off
    Dynamic Normalizer: on/off
    AVLS (volume limiter): on/off

    Obviously, sound quality can vary slightly between file formats, bit rates and quality of the original source recording, but most of the tracks I've downloaded and CDs I've copied to it have a deep, rich quality to them, which shows Sony have put some serious effort into the engineering of this little player.

    5.0 out of 5 stars My first player- love it 25 Jun 2008
    Verified Purchase
    I got my player this week and i love it. The sound quality is clear through both the bluetooth headphones and standard earphones and the device is well made and easy to use. The menus are similar to Ericssons and the interface to my computer is simple via media player 11.

    The unit charging is via USB to your computer, but the Sony AC to USB 5V power Adaptor is sold seperately allowing you to plug it into the socket.

    The bluetooth headset charges via normal plug socket.

    There is a biggish speaker dock Sony SRS-NWGM30 Speaker Dock, and a small speaker dock Sony SRS-NWT10M Mini speaker for NWZ Walkman available on Amazon. If you want to retain the bluetooth freedom then there's also Sony SRS-BT100 Bluetooth Speaker.

    You can buy a wire which will allow you to hook up to your existing stereo via the aux from any electronics store, but make sure you know the size of the port at the back of your stereo.

    This is my first player so i can't compare it to the others, but i certainly recommend it to anyone. By the way, it doesn't come with a case but it fits a large phone sock i got from a certain auction site.

    Update: there's a leather case available on Amazon: Black Genuine Leather Case Cover for Sony Walkman Bluetooth NWZ-A826 NWZA826 NWZ-A828 NWZA828 NWZ-A829 NWZA829 NWZ-A828K NWZ-A826K NWZ-A829K NWZ-A726, NWZ-A728 & NWZ-A729 + Screen Protector

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Stunning Little Player 23 April 2008
    Looks: very small and light, lovely to hold in the palm of your hand

    Sound: fantastic sound through the in-ear headphones - the best I have ever heard and these buds are wonderfully comfortable. The 4 and 8gb players also come with wireless headphones (very easy to pair with player - the sound quality is very good wireless - probably not as good as in-ear headphones but certainly more than satisfactory) - the only drawback is they're not as comfortable as the in-ear headphones.

    Picture: After putting a couple of film trailers on the device (a breeze to do) - see Sony's website for links to free trailers and podcasts specially made for Sony Walkmans (click the walkman sign next to the film trailer and the site recognizes your player attached to the computer and automatically downloads it!) - I was very pleased with quality; such smooth and crystal clear playback. You even get a mini stand so you can watch the screen propped up!

    Summary: OK, I've only just started using the player and I guess the real test will come with time, but for now I have put 10 albums on the player, several film trailers and navigated menus with ease. I haven't discovered half the features yet but these tasks took minutes and results are instant and so pleasing. I'm proud to own this player and will look forward to the many hours of use promised for every charge.
