2.0 out of 5 stars expected much more, 22 April 2010
This review is from: Sony NWZA845B A series Walkman 16GB MP3 Player with 2.8 inch OLED Screen (Electronics)
Firstly and most importantly..I hope all future Sony Mp3's dont follow this particular versions ridiculous volume capping policy...(unless its a very poor amp??)
Good points - OLED screen and Headphones **vvv.good!)
Bad points - Tacky control buttons (if you look closely not centered properly)and extremely difficult to locate without visual reference.
no success with iplayer, screen glitches and NC was not up to expectation.
This was supposed to be an upgrade/replacement for my sony nwz-s638f which i am sorry to say beats it hand down. Come on Sony i absolutely refuse to surrender to ipod.
Regrettably returned for refund.
(Sub note**if plugged into nwz-s638).

The volume capping is the result of an EU regulation, it's not Sony's fault!

The thing is, I never listen to my MP3 players through head phones and always run them through the aux in my car. I had to take the X-series walkman back due to it being so quiet. Thats with the limiting software turned off, full volume on the player and the cars head unit at full volume.

I have an old A818 and that is fine.
