  • The sum of the NWZ-S710F's audio enhancement and noise-canceling features adds up to one of the most pleasant and private music experiences you can have for less than $200.


  • The NWZ-S738F is an audiophile's player, with top-notch earbuds and great sound, but it isn't the best choice for video.


  • Sony's mid-level MP3 player competes with the iPod nano, and while it is superior for video or photo viewing, the interface doesn't hold a candle to Apple's tried and tested iPod menu system. If you're a multimedia enthusiast and don't mind the lack of Wi-Fi, we'd seriously consider getting the Sony NWZ-S544 instead of Apple's nano.

  • An excellent player with meaty sound. If you're a bit over the whole iPod thing, this is a very good alternative to the Nano.


  • Great sound, OLED screen and noise cancellation, good ear buds and lovely design. What's not to love about this Walkman? Oh yeah, that's right, the extravagant price.

  • Great sound, OLED screen, noise cancellation, good earbuds and lovely design, but at a hefty price tag.


  • Sometimes simplicity works best, and whether by accident or design, that's the A845's strength.
