not recommended for podcast listeners

I bought this primarily to listen to podcasts and it's essentially unusable for that. From stuff online, I knew I'd have to do some stuff manually (make a podcast folder, number the episodes to keep them in order). What I didn't realize was that the device doesn't keep track of where you are in the episode and fast forwarding is extremely slow and tedious. So if your listening is interrupted it's painful to get to where you were. Fine for music and radio

I love these!

This is the most versatile player I own! Not everything has to be bluetooth! I own more than one and they're all loaded with books! This is so easy to use & great for traveling.

Sony, a brand name you can trust. Wanted something that was solid. Previous MP3 player (not a name brand from China) had issues. It would be on random play and after 30 min of songs, it would "reset and play the same songs again. Very weird. So looked around for MP3 player and found this Sony Walkman MP3 player. Flawless to use. No random play function. Don't download Sony music program. Old program takes lots of space and slow. Easier to move files (drop and drag or copy paste ) from having a window with your music and a window open from the MP3 player). No Bluetooth for wireless headphones. Connect a corded over the ear headphones, you are good to go. Great sound coming out of the player.

Okay, but less than hoped for

I wanted to upgrade an old Walkman that doesn't receive some local FM stations very well in my office. I found this model on sale at B&H. It is incredibly light weight. The earbuds are uncomfortable, but I expected to use my own anyway. The problem is that the reception is about the same as the old model. The 100,000 watt stations come in great. The 50,000 watt station is significantly weaker. I hear the weaker station great on a Bose SoundTouch or on my car radio at the same quality I hear the power station. I have not tried it from the office yet, but expect to have the same problem as the old Walkman. At least this one is rechargeable. The old one ate AA batteries. I do like the weight and small size of this model. The controls are pretty easy. All in all, it is pretty good, just not quite what I hoped for in reception.

Happy with the Sony Walkman player
