  • 1Description

The Sony 8GB E Series Walkman Video MP3 Player (Black) provides up to 36 hours of continuous music playback or up to six hours of uninterrupted video playback on a single charge. You can enjoy photos, album artwork and videos on the ultra-bright 2" color LCD display with 320 x 240 QVGA resolution. Or, you can sing along to your favorite songs as the karaoke mode scrolls the lyrics to the latest hits across the screen. The E Series Walkman provides drag-and-drop file transfers for easy uploading of your music, pictures and video from either iTunes or Windows Media Player (WMP).

The E Series also features Sony's exclusive Clear Audio technologies, which include Clear Stereo, Clear Bass and a Digital Sound Enhancement Engine. The technology is designed to restore the clarity and depth of digitally compressed music. Plus, with the integrated dynamic equalizer, you can select a preset genre setting or dial in your own with a custom EQ curve. For added convenience, Sony ships the E Series Walkman with a high-quality pair of EX headphones, so you're ready to go as soon as you open the box.

The E Series Walkman is loaded with accoutrements above and beyond most MP3 players. It has a built-in digital FM tuner, a clock function with alarm and an integrated microphone for voice recording. It even comes preloaded with two games to keep you occupied on your daily commute. Sony also outfitted the device with their SensMe application, which automatically groups your music into separate channels based on beats-per-minute. That way, when you're relaxing you can listen to only relaxing music, and when you're working out, you'll only get up-tempo tracks.

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. This helps establish playlists with similar tunes, which enables SensMe to create and deliver the perfect playlist specifically designed to keep in perfect tune with your mood. 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 8GB 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
