I am lovin It

I was very much confused between the Sony Mp3 Player and Apple Shuffle. The price for Apple Shuffle is 3200/ while Sony costs you 2990/ Rupees. Only some 200 rupees difference. Price does not matter in this case but the Mp3 Player should be a good one. After so many research and reviews finally I decided to purchase Sony Mp3 Player and placed an order on 2nd July and got it delivered in 3rd July.

Nice Product

Sound Quality: I would rate it 3.5/ 5- Its clear, bass is less (in-spite of using the bass button bass is less to my taste)

File Transfer: 5/5 Fast take 10 seconds to transfer 5 odd songs

Navigation: 2/5- Very frustrating and the person will have to get used to it, feels like that cheap sort of wheel will pop out in hands (one has to rotate that wheel for entire navigation)

Recording: 4/5- Excellent quality recording both FM & Voice

Ear Phones- Stock ear phones suck, can buy Sony Headphones MDR-EX60LP from Flipkart (990 bucks)or some other ones, stock ear phones are neither good nor...

Overall- 3.75/5- The product is slightly overpriced (so is with all SONY products, however this one performs above average on critical aspects considered before buying such product

Superb quality, life-like sound and worth the money

I got this gadget yesterday and i am enjoying its excellent sound quality which is miles ahead of iPod shuffle. The bass is very strong and each and every sound especially the guitar strings and cymbals appear to be playing in real life. I have been listening to my favourite songs in my lappy with a logitech earphone but now i rediscovered those songs again, just like the difference between watching a cricket match on cable TV v/s watching it on an HD channel.. Thanks to the crispness and amazing stereo widening of this music player.

Thanks to the crispness and amazing stereo widening of this music player.

The build quality is good and the keys are highly responsive. The FM and voice recorder is an add on (since the sound quality overshadows them all). But yes, the earphones supplied are not the best. Since i carry a noise isolating logitech 200vi, it works GREAT. For less than 3k, this is an unbeatable product.

And i know this review still din???t make sense to Apple fanboys... :)

Audio enhancement tip

To get the best possible sound, change the in built equalizer from 'default/normal' to 'unique'. The sound quality is shockingly superior to the default setting. Only found that out myself recently. The 'jazz' equalizer is also good.

Good Player with BAD headphones

This is a Nice Product, in look and use. But the Headphones are really bad for Sony name. They can't fit/adjust in ears and have very low sound. Had to buy new headphones for it. (View complete review)

VERY GOOD PRODUCT

I have purchased both B16 and B17 series of products. B16 version had some firmware glitches but B17 is good. You have to invest in a good earphone to get the maximum out of this player. I have tried many earphones with this player: Jays a-jays two, Sony mdr-ex57, Sony mdr-xb20, Soundmagic pl21,... (View complete review)
