        Comments about Sony 16GB A Series Walkman Video MP3 Player:

        I bought the A865 after I lost my Cowon J3; the lack of flac support and expansion card were reasons to find another pmp and not Sony, however I got the sony mainly because of the sound quality, and the s-master feature.. Well, I am not disappointed, I am using it with Audio Technica ATH M50, the sound is loud enough at 18/30 level.. the sound is clear, detailed, and the bass can be boosted from 1 to 3. There are newer versions of Sony with flac support, however when listening mp3 320kbps or mp3 vbr and wav lossless files, it cant be noticed differences between them. Considering that mp3 320kbps is a great sound quality already on this mp3, there is no much point in getting huge capacities for a pmp, 16GB in my case is good enough.. I am still using many wav files in specific albums though.About video and pictures cant say much, this is a great sounding player and that is what I will be using the most.

        Comments about Sony 16GB A Series Walkman Video MP3 Player:

        I use my walkman about everywhere I go. When I'm traveling, commuting, at work, at school. You name it I'm listening to it. This walkman sounds amazing, best I've heard. I'm suprized how well the touch screen responds. If anything its to responsive that I hve to put it on hold. Its also every easy to use. My only complaint is that its only has 16 gb. As a audiophie I download sound at very high quaility which take up a lot of space I have about 3000 sounds and the mp3 player only hold 1600 of them. I hope they make a 32 or 64 bit I would definitly buy it and recommend it over and apple product to friends.

          Sound is incredible ( better than my cousin's iPod touch 5G ). In my opinion , this is the best PMP. Apple iPod's hardware is nowhere as good as iPhone's and the sound is not that good (both in iPod and iPhone).Cowon sounds better(according to people) but is not that reliable and trustworthy.

            This Sony Walkman rocks! The sound quality is superb. Much better than the other major brand that begins with an "A." The supplied headphones are very good - clean bass and crisp highs. I listen to primarily classical music, so high quality is a must. The menus are simple and easy to understand and navigate with a very short learning curve. Will work with a Mac where one has to create a folder and manually transfer songs to the Walkman. Better with Windows and Sony Media Go software. Battery life is good as well.
