Sony, have indeed done it again, it's truly a stunning bit of kit.
Just to quickly address one point the previous reviewer made about
it turning on in his pocket. He can't have used the function lock
slider. There's a little slider on the side of the unit that when
moved to the lock position means the unit can't be accidently activated.
It disables all the buttons for that reason.
Re: Sound quality; I can honestly say that I have never heard from
any other audio source a better sound. I have to say though, this I
put down to the headphones. They are incredible! The sound through them
regardless of what you plug them in to is the best I've ever heard and
way better than my "expensive" ones that cost me more than £30.
But by far the best feature of this unit and the reason I bought it is
it's amazing battery life. Due to ongoing health problems, I'm going to
be in hospital sometime in the not too distant future and due to a love
of audiobooks, I needed a player that could go through the night, as
my sleep is disturbed. Not only can this player go through the night,
the spec' says it can go for up to 50 hours. Well I've left it playing and
got slightly over that in hours of constant playback. This was the reason
I bought the unit and I've not been dissapointed. Divide 50 hours playback
by how long you listen to your player per day and you'll be shocked how
infrequently you'll have to charge it and how happy you'll be when you
go to listen to it and think "Oh $%!£ I forgot to charge the player" only
to find it charged and working. That was the important thing for me.

I will honestly and happily reccomend this unit if you want long bat life and amazing sound!

The Sony NWZE464B.CEW or what I like to call Sony ZE4 was a replacement for an old sony model I bought about 4 years ago which broke, due to a misfortunate accident.
Like its predecesor, this MP3 Player delivers in all the right places. I'll start of with the obvious.

Build:

-Style-
The sleek new design to the ZE4 means it's alot more ergonomic and easy to recognise the buttons from a single touch. (Easy to operate without looking at it) So if its in your pocket, you'll have no trouble getting to the forward/back or play buttons.

-Materials-
Again, although it uses what seems to be a mixture of durable plastics with metal components (like previous models) theres something fine to the materials here. It feels alot sturdier. The screen has proved pretty resistant to scrathes as it's been in my pocket with keys/phone etc and it's been absolutly fine bar the odd thumbprint thats easily buffed off. Theres no glare from the screen and it delivers great quality light, (choose between 5 brightness settings.)

-Colour-
The black model is no longer matte black with simple metalic details. It manages to put a subtle flare to it. The back has a slight shimmer to it and the front just gleams with beauty. The silver rims of the buttons give nice definition and the grey/silver text is easy to read and understand.

-Buttons-
On the front lies the Back, Play, Option and 4 navigational buttons. On the right hand side lies the volume buttoms, and hold switch (which I'll get to in a minute) The top and left side have no buttons and are smooth with that lovely shimmering finish. They feel right, and have a decent amount of click to them without being overly clicky so to speak.

I was looking to replace an old brick size Phillips HDD jukebox, reviews for this Walkman were generally very good so I took the plunge. Really pleased with every aspect of it. Sound is very good and plenty loud enough for me, the headphones are extremely good. Very easy to load music from WMP or Sony software. Screen size is fine for album artwork but possily a bit small if you want to view photos,I bought this just for music. Very easy to navigate the settings and adjust preferences. After a couple of charges the battery life is really good, now only charge once a week instead of every day. A fair price for a great music player. would highly recommend.

By Julie on 28 Dec. 2011
This is the first MP3 player I have bought and am delighted with it. I read many reviews before I bought it and noted how many people were pleased with the sound. I want it so that I can play music so this was the most important feature for me. The only slight fear I had about buying it was that a number of people said the volume was too low. Now that I have it I can only think that they have a problem with their hearing. Setting it up was very easy and so was transferring music from the computer.

This is a high quality product, well made and with an excellent sound.The supplied earphones are very comfortable & come with 3 different sized earbud pads.The software which is embedded in the player is very good,and makes transferring music & photos easy and quick.There is a quick start guide in the box, but the basic menus & functions are easy to figure out.There are numerous menus and settings that can be changed to fine tune the listening experience.Despite what some reviewers have said, I find that the volume is more than adequate,especially as the earphones do a good job of cutting out external noise.The screen,although quite small is clear and sharp, especially when viewing the sample videos & photos that come supplied on the player.There are many functions on this player which I will probably never use,such as the karaoke mode and the display of song lyrics, however, these functions will appeal to others,and the choice in having them adds to the appeal of the player.The battery life is excellent, and if only listening to music, it will last for a very long time.The FM radio is very good and picks up radio stations well, with no interference.All in all, I would recommend this player to anyone wanting a MP3 player with a wide range of settings and functions.The price on Amazon is very good, I haven't seen it for sale for less anywhere else.I am very pleased with this player, and hope it will last a long time.

Update :

I have used this player for a few months now, and can honestly say it is the best music player I have owned.The supplied headphones are the best I have had included with a player, they are still very comfortable and isolate outside sound very well.I have worn them on a noisy coach and heard no outside noise whatsoever.
