Perfect for my Musical Needs

By LionP

I bought my NWZ-E385 (16GB) a few years ago because I just wanted a player for my second vehicle (first vehicle is using an old iPhone 4 as a player... and nothing else). Don't want to tie up my phone to play music - wanted a nice, compact player with adequate storage for just music and this is perfect for me. Play through an FM radio transmitter so I can listen to it on the vehicle's audio system (no aux input). Sony isn't the only brand I trust, but I've been buying their products a long time and have been happy with every one. The only thing I don't like on this Walkman are the locations of the Back and Option buttons. If I want to skip a song while driving, I'm keeping my eyes on the road and doing it just by feeling - hard to tell exactly what my finger is touching. But if I hit a slight bump in the road, my finger will accidentally touch the Option button. Not a show-stopper, just annoying - that's all. Anyway, you can by a cheaper product, but I'm certain this will last a long time. And Sony's updated Content Transfer app for Mac works a lot better than the original version.

Can't transfer playlists

My computer will not allow me to transfer WMP playlists, in part because the wrong driver pops up for the device. I've been trying for days to download the correct one, and it is nowhere to be found on Sony's site that I can find...

A Massive Backwards Step.

I previously owned the NWZE450 and wanted to stick with Sony when the device got busted. This was the only one I could find on the market at the same/equivalent price range. Boy, what a turkey. No voice recorder. Cheaper design. Terrible terrible terrible.

Very good design

Groovy Little Player

I bought this because I wanted a simple, monotasking device to listen to music and other media on. It is quite easy to figure out how to use just by fiddling with it for a few minutes. It comes with a set of wired earbuds, but I prefer to listen to my Walkman with my Klipsch X6i wired earbuds and the sound quality is outstanding- better than my smartphone as a matter of fact which is a Samsung Galaxy Active. This little baby is very tiny (9cm x 4cm or about 3.5in x 1.5in) and thin (1cm or 1/4in) so it could easily slip into a shirt pocket or be tucked somewhere into tight fitting workout gear. Plus, one of the features I like most about it is that while playing music, the Power button clicks up to a Hold function which disallows the controls on the front of the device to be activated as you move about while it’s in your pocket or whatever. When you want to use the controls again you just click it back down. You must transfer music/media onto the Walkman the old-fashioned way: via a USB cord connected to your desktop or laptop. The USB cord is included. Personally, I like this. One thing to note is that in order to make a Playlist on the device, you must download a media player that they give you directions for in the instructions. I haven’t done this so I can’t speak to what it’s like to do or to use, but I found that you don’t have to download the extra software because one of the functions on the Walkman is the option to play a Folder- which essentially works the exact same way as a playlist. You just make your “playlist” in a folder on your desktop/laptop and transfer it over and voila! All in all, I like it a lot and would recommend it to anyone who would dig a little simplification and some excellent sound quality in their lives.

Will Not Work With MAC Computer

The Content Transfer "Sony" software does not work as it Crashes when I attempt to open the app. This Walkman is useless with the Content Transfer software working. Is Sony going to update the Content Transfer software so it will work with Mac Computers? If Sonny will not update and you own a Mac computer do not purchase this device.
