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

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.
Before describing this product let me Thanks to Flipkart for its awesome service.

I got the Mp3 Player and tested for one hour. I am happy with the product and the earphone quality is very good. I have done a good choice by selecting this MP3 player. The apple is only for show off.

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..

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... :)

Excellent sound value.

This is an entry level mp3 player from Sony and is priced on the higher side for a 2GB player. The headphones supplied have awful sound. I purchased (separately) another pair of Sony headphones MDR-60-LP from Flipkart and it sounds beautiful. If your music has Bass, you will hear it with excellent treble.
The player functions need to get used to, but after a couple days - perfect. The battery life is good and lasts for a week to 10 days. Plug it in a usb inlet and it charges within the hour.

The worst drawback of this device is that the Play button which is big and in the center of the navigation wheel is very sensative to the touch. To turn ON the device, you have to just lightly press it and it turns ON. Other players, you have to hold the button for 2 secs or more to turn ON. Due to this sensativity, the player would turn ON and go into PAUSE mode if it were in your pocket and hits at something (even a coin). For that reason, you use the HOLD button everytime which is very annoying.
Apart from that, an excellent player with a great sound. Would recommend it. Excellent delivery and packaging by Flipkart.

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)
