Sony Walkman A Series NWZ-A845

The thinnest ever Walkman
With a 2.8" inch OLED screen, S-Master digital amplifier and integrated Digital Noise Cancelling (up to 98%), all packaged in our thinnest ever 7.2mm body, the Walkman® A-Series is a super-slim powerhouse of entertainment for your pocket.

Hear your music, nothing else
Listen to your music without the background noise, thanks to Digital Noise Cancelling. Advanced Artificial Intelligent Noise Cancelling automatically monitors your environment to find the right anti-noise profile - and blocks out an extraordinary 99% of ambient noise on some models.

Experience all your music in stunning sound quality
You get superb sound quality from Walkman thanks to three built-in audio technologies: Clear Stereo, Clear Bass and DSEE digital sound enhancement. They all work in harmony to bring you a listening experience as close as possible to the original sound, just like being at a live performance.

No restrictions with open format
Open format means no matter where your music is stored, or what format it's in (WMA, MP3 and AAC (non-DRM only)), you can transfer your entire library onto your Walkman® just by dragging and dropping it from Windows Media Player 11, iTunes or Windows Explorer. It's a cinch!

Eye-popping video playback
A full colour OLED screen display brings you razor-sharp, ultra-bright video playback in incredible detail and clarity. With 10000:1 contrast ratio, wider viewing angles (up to 180 degrees) and super-quick response times (0.1ms) you get breathtaking results on screen, even with fast-moving scenes

Longest battery life around
Walkman battery stamina is way ahead of the competition, which means you can listen and watch for so much longer. With straight playback of up to 30 hours music, and 6 hours for video, plugging in to power up will be the last thing on your mind at home, in the car or anywhere on the move

 A phenominal mp3 player, at a steal of a price!

| | See all etePwood's reviews (2)

I've owned a 4th gen Ipod and an ipod nano.
I lost my nano and needed to replace it.

I've always respected the reviews of sony mp3 players but was put off by sonicstage, their supposedly lousy software.
Knowing my PSP had good soundquality I went for this model with good included headphones.

Looks/build: It looks nice enough and is built well enough too. Not epic but not shabby. I was worried it would feel too light at 64grams but it is fine.

Display: The OLED screen is bright, vibrant and fast, fine to even watch video on. Resolution is fine for most needs.

Sound: This, genuinely, blew me away and made me smile like a lunatic:) You will need to sort your source material out, this thing deserves more than 128kbs, I am whacking on 320kbs to be safe. Coming from an ipod you WILL, as in GUARANTEED, hear things in your songs you have NEVER heard before. Vocals are hauntingly present, like you are being sung to, directly into your brain!
Bass is fairly tight and well balanced. If you are an out and out bass freak then perhaps look elsewhere, for those that appreciate balance it is great.

Noise cancelling: Tested this next to the kitchen extrator fan:) it really does work. tried it on the tube and it quietened things by 70% i'd say, it's really nice.

Software: Plug it in, drag files or videos into respective folder and disconnect again. It just works. Fast transfer rates too, brilliant.

Battery life: Not sure yet as had it not very long, but i'm sure it'll put out a respectible 20hrs, maybe more.

Conclusion: even at the new price of 130quid you get 70quid headphones and 16gb capacity which is more than enough I think.

Have no doubts, I have owned two ipods and this OBLITERATES them. Ipods are NOT improving their sound quality 'as they go along' that's a load of BS.

Be sensible, stray from the flock and get this great piece of kit. Life is too short for dodgy music!

Only bought this yesterday, its so simple to use, the content transfer tool makes it so easy to transfer music. The sound quality is fantastic, buy one and you won't be disapointed. I have found that it won't charge with my universal charger - not really a big deal.

 An excellent walkman!!

Bought this to replace an aging Sony S Series Walkman. This player is almost without fault. The sound quality is premium, the best I have ever heard from a portable player. Build quality is fantastic like my old walkman. The screen is beautiful, the contrast, refresh rate and despth of the colours is top notch. The noise cancelling works like a dream, eliminating almost all ambient background noise, however, it does not remove nearby voices (could be considered a pro!). Iplayer usage is very easy, just drag and drop, unlike my old walkman which required windows media player to transfer videos onto it.
I would recommend this product to absolutely anyone. At 112 pounds currently, it is much cheaper than the equivilent ipod nano making it a bargin, with its much improved looks and sound quality.

I had the last series of this product and found that it didn't quite do it for me, so I was reluctant to buy the "A Series".
This one however delivers the goods, the audio is near perfect, the picture superb. I downloaded DVD Videosoft free software from the internet and recoded my DVD's to MP4 for Sony Memory Sticks and got perfect results with that.
The supplied buds are better than my "Sony Monitor" buds which cost 80 quid.
One small problem, I've struggled copying my back iTunes library, I understand this will be resolved soon.
I love it!.
