Rated 5 out of 5 by Hogey Great little unit
I bought this player to replace a 15 year old one that finally bit the dust. I expected great things from this one judging by previous reviews and I was not disappointed! I thought I would be overly impressed by the bass boost feature in such a small unit, but I found the customized equalizer even more impressive. Once set, I didn't even need the bass boost to enjoy my music to the fullest. I found the Zapping feature a bit annoying, as it took a delicate touch of the button to turn it off. I am astonished by the miniature engineering that Sony has (once again) delivered. The supplied ear buds weren't the greatest, but after plugging in a set of premium ones, the sound quality was remarkable! I love my player now, don't know how I got along without it. This is a great product for a great price!

I LOVE this MP3 player so much. The sound quality is very clear and sounds excellent with a extra bass feature. And its the design also, it looks cool especially with the circle LED light. Whats really neat is the light blinks to the rhythm of the song. There is also a built in FM radio which is awesome and has a new feature called ZAP which automatically plays a short clip of the song and once you found what you wanna listen to press ZAP again to select. Sony sure knows how to build their products, you have to try this MP3 for yourself it is a good investment if you like good quality music. Only thing is you'll have to buy better headphones or ear buds because the ones they supply you aren't comfortable and don't sound good. But other then that I am VERY HAPPY with my purchase.

For the price I pay, it does a lot more than any other mp3 player on the market. The blue light looks really cool. Because it has a usb, I can just plug the device into my car and have it play directly from my mp3 player (no messy cords!). It's very easy to put music on, and very easy to use.

A very nice little unit. Playlist capable, AVLS ( volume limitter). Great sound with ear buds included, but also with other headphones and line in connections. Controls are very simple to use with a variety of settings. Compact unit with USB built in on one end and a removeable belt clip and lanyard holes. Purchased about 1year ago with nothing but good things to say. Kudos Sony!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ConstantListener Get the other models
This player is awful.
The zappin in feature is annoying as heck, and is easily activated by accident just trying to grip the player to pause it, and it screws up your playback.
The clip isn't good enough, and mine fell off, never to be seen again.
Get one of the bigger models, put a lanyard on it, and your life will be happier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by goose77 Good "value for money"
great sound for a great little mp3 player. i love that the usb is built right in, and that navigation between folders is a breeze. i only gave it 4 stars because i'm saving the last star for durability... thus far, i'm pleased!

Bought one Saturday. Copied over some MP3s. The music cuts out constantly in every song.
No problem. I figure it's a dud. I go exchange it. Do the same thing, get the same result. NOT HAPPY.
The files play fine on the media player on the PC. I tried other earphones - same result. So it must be the player itself.
