Extol for Sony.....

Proud of this Gizmo....I own it,I flaunt it......and what not.
Amazing buy buddies...I own the Gold edition.
when its sony, you dont have to think over the sound....its like a dolby digital crescendo going in your ears. the sound headphones are very robust....the clip works fine and is detachable.

Plug and Play device...charges in an hour and supports upto 6 hrs. I train with this in the morning and I charge it once a week.

A Skull Candy Headphone or a Bose one will boost its performance.
The USB works cool.
Flipkart Delivers it within a couple of days.

But repeated use of the USB makes the USB cap a bit loose albeit it hardly falls off....Amazing Buy

Cheers

Awesome product

I am lover of sony brand for its music products. But my review would be completely independent of my love to SONY. Its a genuine experience based feedback.
So, first of all Thanks to Flipkart to give me this product in reasonable price, cheaper than market or any other online portal. Your service always surprise me. This product has all the quality what it commits, wonderful sound, beautiful design, convenient navigation, good storage space and long battery life. Only one thing should be changed or modified in it is its rotating navigation button. Some time its very difficult to operate while driving or moving.

Best choice for people who really love listening all sort of songs.

And hats of to SONY too, after 5 months from date of purchase, My device got some issue and its stopped responding to recharge and was not turning on. I was so upset, but when I took it too the Sony service center, they replaced the whole set (device & earphone) with brand new set. This was really surprising for me and my faith has become 200% on SONY since then.

unfortunate incidence can happen to any electronic device of any brand, but what makes a brand outstanding , is its after-sales service, which SONY really has it.

Go for it !!

Worth more than it's price, just go for it!

I bought this stick after disappointment with the iPod Shuffle. I am an endurance athlete, and as such, my requirements were some kind of protection against or rather robustness against sweat. Even though they say that the shuffle is made for it, I personally disagree because I've gone through two iterations of both, and have been thoroughly disappointed with both.

I won't deny the fact that iPod quality is easily amongst the best out there. But it just doesn't serve an athlete's needs. This guy on the other hand, I will go on to say that it is better than iPod in music quality as well as durability.

I have run in the rains, have buckets of water poured over me while I was using these, and yet, against my all fears, this is running as good as ever. You can't beat sony in music quality, and you definitely can't beat it in durability.

It isn't amongst the most usable of products out there though, the dial feels a bit plastic-y and there is no shuffle. Scrolling is a bit awkward, and buttons are difficult to use without devoting special attention to it while running. But even then, I still prefer this over the iPod shuffle. I was an apple fan boy till I used this, and I am not switching to anything else after this.

Good volume, Amazing Bass, amazing durability and price, all in one. Just go for it. But I would suggest that you don't use the stock ear phones, they suck.

Excellent sound quality!!

i received the product through flipkart yesterday and m enjoying it.. it easily beats the ipod shuffle in sound quality...
let me mention some pros and cons for this product..

PROS
- quick 3 min charge
-on&off bass feature
-FM radio
-FM radio recording
-voice recording
- crystal clear sound
-the hold button.. (when you accidentally press any button the word "HOLD" appears on the screen)
-excellent battery life
-charges fully only in 1 hr
-LED lights (you can turn it on&off)

CONS
-Navigation.. (its confusing..when you have to turn the wheel clockwise or anticlockwise to go forward but you'll get used to it)
-earphones..( they could have been better..it pains when you wear them for a long time)
-plastic wheel.. (the rotating wheel is made up of plastic and feels like it will pop out the next time you use it.)
-a bit overpriced
- the shinny wheel in the pic above is not that shinny in real
-less base (to me its less)
-the cap will eventually become lose after repeated use
- SONY does not provide any charger..(you have to charge it through your PC or laptop)
- the ZAP feature is useless and annoying

i hope this review helps the guys wanting to buy this product.. its a decent mp3 player.. if sound is all that matters.. go for it :)

Brilliant beauty!!

I got this player about 4 months ago from Chandigarh and I can conclude after a lot of internet surfing and window shopping for over 2 months that this is far better than all the mp3 players in the same price league. A quick glimpse to the pros and cons of this product:

Pros:
Flashing led lights
Excellent sound quality
Ease of transferring files (unlike iPod, for which you need to install iTunes)
Marvelous battery backup (upto 12 hours with bass and 15 without)
Fm radio
Voice and fm recording
Beautiful colours (I own a pink one)
3 minute quick charge

Cons:
After sometimes the USB cap becomes a bit loose
The earphones could have been better
The product is vulnerable to scratches
The screen is a bit small
(but keeping the price in view, it is obvious that you cannot get all the features)

To conclude I can say that you must buy this product if you want to buy a decent mp3 player. And it's from a brand like Sony....er...that's an explanation in itself. So go for this product, I am sure you will be satisfied, as I am. :)
