A better MP3 player than iPod - excellent sound quality
I can truly say that this is an amazing machine. I have owed many MP3 players, and currently also owning an iPod, can give a this a very good comparative review. £120 when I purchased, it is well worth it. The main thing that stands out is sound quality! Using a half decent set of sennheiser headphones (always advisable to upgrade on any supplied accessories) you get a much nicer sound quality out of this Sony player compared to any iPod. Mainly due to a proper EQ adjustment, which is beautiful, you can get pleanty of bass out of it etc. Also it is much smaller and light-weight than I realised too. Sony have also improved their software (not using Sonic Stage which always used to get a slating) and it plays BBC iPlayer stuff great too. No question the best MP3 player I have ever owned!
