The battery lasts a long time and the sound quality is really very good. I haven't lost the usb lead yet so don't have an issue with the dedicated fitting. If this isnt loud enough for you then I suspect you have hearing damage and should see a doctor as mine is loud enough for everything I need.This is much smaller than it seems , this is a good thing for me, but some may find it a bit too small. The finish of the player isnt brilliant as it rapidly looks rather dirty and scratched. However as 99% of the time its in a pocket , that isnt really that important. Enjoy your music!
I previously had brought the earlier model which was 8 GB a year before. But I lost the USB lead and the sony walkman mp3 players have a unique usb lead and it would of cost at least 15 pounds for a new one, so instead I put the 15 towards a this 16gb one and I lost the cable again. But I have about 6 other standard usb cables that would work with other mp3 players, it annoys me that these mp3s have a different one.
But other than that it's great!!
great mp3 , video and all that , easiest thing in the universe to operate loads of room, JUST NOT LOUD ENOUGH after lisatening to an ipod then this its as though avls is on, and is not when i use it, tried everything, equalizer settings and so on, just not loud enough!!!!!!
