Before I give my opinion on new Sony X series walkman, I must make a disclaimer here that I am neither a techno expert nor Ipod buff. Any opinion expressed here is purely how I have felt about this particular product and the reasons why I waited since January 2009 before I bought it.
I think foremost every one wants to know if its better than IPOD. Well to answer the question very broadly speaking, in my opinion this is definitely better than any IPOD (nano, classic etc). Is it better than IPOD touch , well I will leave this to user to decide based on what I have found about Sony X series since I bought it 3 days ago(amazon).
In my opinion the sound quality is "exceptional" without exaggerating it. I personally think, on sound quality I would rate this 10/10 ( 10 out of 10 coz I do not know any other music player with such high quality sound, but then I have not tried all music player. I do acknowledge that there might be some out there but I do not know which one~). It allows you to select many options to change song quality ( e.g. heavy, pop, jazz etc,). Most digital player give one of these options but Sony's options do have remarkable differences one from the other.
Other feature every one is eager to find out if noise cancellation really works or is it a gimmick (Sony do put up some gimmicks in their products , but strangely this walkman is completely devoid of any so well done to guys at Sony).Noise cancellation works strangely near perfect cutting down on noise level. I have already tried this on a tube, packed train ( 1758 to Hays from Charing cross, honestly it is always crowded!)
in my office restaurent ( I work in a hospital, so a very busy clattering restaurent) and it worked every where giving me complete peace to enjoy my music.

The sound is very good and I did not find it necessary to replace the supplied noise-isolating in-ear earphones with expensive ones. The noise isolation is good with music though it does not work so well with speech. The FM radio is fair quality for this sort of product. It is easy to transfer music and podcasts from computer to the Walkaman using Windows Explorer. The supplied software is good. For example, it is possible to automatically transfer all podcasts from the computer to the Walkman using the content transfer program supplied.

The web-surfing, podcast and YouTube built-in functionality are too frustratingly slow to be useful. The pictures and videos are crisp and clear with vibrant colours. But I doubt if most customers need the internet, pictures and videos functions on a Walkman when they are best performed on a computer with a fast internet connection and a big screen. Wish Sony would bring out a product like this solely for listening to music, podcasts and maybe radio in the same high quality as this Walkman but without all the other useless gimmicks.

So, 30 years ago (abouts) Sony blasted the world with the Sony walkman tape players, and were the rulers of walkman portable players until the 90's. But since then it's been a bit of a downhill struggle as they get behind in the latest rudementary gadgets and gizmos that every device now 'has to have' to be acceptable to a growing market.

They created numerous walkman MP3 devices, but when apple came along and set a new sexy way of thinking and flawless design and features, sony were pushed away into a dark corner. Apple players have everything you can imagine on them and look sleek and gorgeous and the advertising and smooth interface made them a winner on all boards. That is, except one: sound quality. It's easy to get disguised with hundreds of movies, touch screens, internet, apps, large screens, sexy designs, that the main point of an mp3 player should be the sound quality and nothing should be added untill this is the best it can be as it is at the heart of the mp3 device point. This, however, is somehing sony have never forgotton, and ever since the first tape walkman in the 80's, quality has been the research that sony have put there time into, and gadgets? well they come second.

This is where the new x series walkman comes in, all of the mp3 walkmans sony have produced have been, well pretty dull looking, and fairly featureless, but one things for sure, the sound has been towers above any other brand, be it Creative, Apple, Iriver, Cowon, Philips, or Samsung. Sony is the only one who's solely concentrated on lush, warm, delicate, vibrant, and deep sound production with the compressed formats we go so keenly to listen to. But as this doesn't seem to appeal to the wider public who would rather search for slik design and bursting with features, Sony began to loose out.

Having been a Apple iPod fanboy for the last 6 years I've never looked or listend to other audio players on the market, I used to have a Sony Walkman tape player when I was about 8 years old, and I loved it. Recently I thought "WHAT THE HELL, I WANT CHANGE", so I sold my Ipod Touch to my brother and decided to try something new. I demo'd some other players such as Microsoft & Samsung but they had nothing on the Apple products until I discovered the Sony X Series on a Gadget TV Show here in the UK. The show usually gets it right on quality and sound and have never failed me on other gadgets they had reviewed so I took a gamble and purchased an X Series from Amazon with my fingers firmly crossed.

All I can say is "WOW" from the moment I heard it's crisp true stereo sound the Sony X Series Walkman had made me fall back in love with the SONY Walkman (just like when I was a child) once again. It works beautiful in its own way through the easy to use interface.

The X Series 3-inch OLED touch screen is crystal clear and much brighter than an of the iPod family. You can tell straight away that the X Series incorporates better sound processing and restores missing detail in compressed music ( I noticed this straight away compared to my iPod). It also features a built-in (yes, in-built) noise reduction feature that's added to make you dispense with battery powered headphones. The New Sony X-series is a must for a MUSIC lover that wants to go a step beyond the iPod !!!!

Cheers - MARK !!
