My Sony Walkman Mp3 Player is different from the one pictured. I love love love my Walkman Mp3 Player. It does it all without costing a fortune. I have had other mp3 players and they do not compare to this one. Sound Quality Sound Quality is amazing you can have the volume at a lower setting and still hear the music or audio book recording like you were playing it in a much louder volume. Performance Performance is great. This mp3 player is not just an mp3 player it also plays videos and has a voice recorder too. Battery Life Battery life is one of the best things about this mp3 player. My Sony Walkman Mp3 player can usually last about a week without having to charge it. The more time using it the more frequently it will have to be charged. Durability This mp3 is very slim in size but seems to be very durable. I haven't experienced any problems with it yet. I haven't dropped or stepped on it or damaged it in any way. I would never damage something of this quality. It would just be over usage of it that would be the death of my Sony Walkman Mp3 player.
