      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.

      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 am...

      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 Headphon...

      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.

      A bit large for a portable mp3 player

      The sound quality of this walkman is really good. In days where smartphones includes almost all features, walkmans and mp3 players have lost their popularity. The only selling point if any for these things should be their size. And sony should do something here as this one feels a bit bulky compared to the likes of Apple ipod.

      But the FM is a welcome addition given this mp3 player is only 2 GB. Buy it ONLY if you don't own a smartphone or any phone that does not have mp3 support. Otherwise ...

      Above average performer!

      Built Quality:
      Bulky & feels cheap :( (Although it's actually cheap!)

      Navigation:
      pretty bad, takes time to get used to it.

      Earphone:
      Terrible pair of earphones looks damn cheap.

      Compatibility:
      Compatibility issues when used with smartphone earphones I tried Sony Xperia & Samsung earphones.

      Sound Quality:
      Sony NWZ-B172F nails it with respect to sound quality. Excellent.

      Must find decent pair of earphones for this.. Tried Soundmagic E10 & Sony XB30EX both delivered excellent output.
