Great sounding Sony Walkman,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony NWZX1050B X Series 16GB MP4 Walkman with WIFI (Electronics)
First off, if you want a multi-media player, go and buy an I-pod touch. If, however, you want your music to actually sound good, then you've come to the right place. The player improves on previous models by allowing you to tweak the sound until it suits your tastes with the 5 band equalizer and various sound enhancement modes. One word of warning though: despite some reviews to the contrary below, I found the bundled cans poor at producing a rounded sound with overly harsh highlights and midtones that sounded like the music was being played in a tunnel. Go and buy some Shures or Sennheiser 300s - the difference is phenomenal. Build quality is fantastic, feeling solid and sturdy in the hand and the addition of the hard buttons on the top allow you to change tracks and pause whilst inside a pocket. The OLED screen is bright and crystal clear. Only gets 4 stars because you'll have to rip all your music again if you weren't using WMP to start with.
