4.5 Overall brilliant MP3 player Peteee3 | 14/09/2011 | See all Peteee3's reviews (1) If you want something to play music and have excellent sound quality but don't care about games and gimicky stuff then then this is for you. The player is small and light and easily fits in your pocket.Overall the sound quality is amazing, the bass enhancement makes so much difference, I have to say I haven't noticed any decrease in the treble quality when the bass kicks in, even on songs like No Problem by Chase & Status and Invaders must dies by Prodigy, but also is amazing with bands like Linkin Park and Evanescence and just about every other band I have listened to, though I usually turn the bass down to 2 for non Drum'n'Bassey songs. the ear phones really help to enhance the sound as well. I have found the sound enhacement is useful as a lot of the music I have on it is 128kbps and even if it didn't make much difference, I don't see how an extra can be a drawback.The volume isn't the loudest when comparing it to other players but I when I listen to it through the earphones I have it on 22/30 which is plenty loud enough for most things.The video quality is also amazing, the screen resolution is perfect and I find the screen size is plenty big enough for seeing the detail.One other thing is that it has a speed control on it meaning you can turn a song to half speed whilst keeping the song at the right pitch which is perfect if you are learning a song on the guitar and need to pick up the fast fiddly bits in the songs. It gets a little bit fuzzy but if you're using it to learn something it won't matter really.A few minor DRAWBACKSNo speakers on it unlike Ipod touch, whilst I wasn't really expecting it to have but it would improve it though I don't know how they would add it without making it bigger, so not a major drawback.The screen scratches quite easily and I have a few scratches on it which doesn't help with watching videos but if you get a case when you order one it will be fine.Although the sound is really good when you get above about 26 on the volume when you have full bass it will start to fade in an out with the music but then you just have to turn the bass down to 1 or 2 and it will be fine up to max volume. Other sony walkmans including walkman phones that have bass boost or mega bass do the same thing.The screen is also not true widescreen meaning you have to work out how to crop photos as windows live photo gallery doesn't appear to have a 240x400 setting but again this is only a minor thing.
