Main Features

SensMe Tone Analysis & Software Application
Sony's SensMe tone analysis and SensMe software application automatically identifies and groups songs from your music library based on a track's beats-per-minute.

Plus, SensMe's ability to create channels with a common thread and beat makes both listening and managing your content simple and rewarding
Storage Capacity for Hours of Music, Photo-Browsing & Video Playback
Sony's Walkman manages to appear stream-lined and ultra-portable, but underneath the "hood" you'll find plenty of storage capacity with a totally sufficient 16GB internal memory capable of holding hours of your favorite music, plenty of audio books for a road trip, enough video files for staving off boredom on your daily commute or long flight, and with so much room for digital pictures - you'll be able to carry all the memories you want to share with both friends and family

        This is an awesome player if you're interested in playing music (and not playing games or whatnot). It's sleek, with decent battery life and an intuitive interface. The best thing about it, though, is drag-and-drop file loading. No going through a bloated program to load up your walkman!

          Got this to replace my old one that wouldn't work with the new laptop. Pretty good. Plug it in to charge all the way, then add a little music and play it- it needs a little warmup before you try to transfer large amounts onto it. Buttons on the front are a little more sensitive than their older models. Equalizer functions are so-so.

              I've been a Sansa Fuse V1 user for years so when mine gave up the ghost, I started searching for it's replacement. The new Fuse is a step backwards and the Sansa clip just wasn't big enough. I tried the Apple Nano at first, but I'm the kind of person who likes buttons instead of touchpad controls. Enter this Sony. I still don't like it as much as the V1 Fuse, but it's the next best thing. The music sounds great and the radio works well which was/is a big deal to me. Also, the podcast features fit the bill as well. About the only thing I don't like about it is that you can't mute the sound when using the radio, go figure. I guess I'll continue to use it, but if Sansa ever comes out with another Fuse like the original, I'm gone.

              This is a simply amazing MP3 player but it has gone beyond just that. It has simple things like an FM radio and more advanced things such as its ability to detect your play habits to develope play lists and multiple built in equilizer settings.
