Sony Walkman NWZ-W202

 

The perfect portable music player?

A well-designed MP3 system for active pursuits, offering decent sound quality and intelligent controls. For gym use, jogging or dirty work, it's hard to find anything better.

Sony NWZ-W202 review

 

This MP3 player is a novel idea that's expertly executed. They're a restless bunch at Sony

Unique design is brilliant for listening during exercise ; sound is upfront and punchy

Can sound unnatural ; not discreet

A novel idea, expertly executed. They're a restless bunch at Sony

Sony Walkman NWZ-W202 review

 

This nifty Walkman packs 2GB storage into some rather large headphones. So, has Sony come up trumps or made itself look a chump?

A novel idea for a sporty MP3 player, expertly executed. Only the slightly harsh sound lets it down

Review: Sony W Series NWZ-W202 Walkman MP3 Player

 

Since we unboxed the NWZ-W202 - one of Sony's latest all in one portable music players, we've had some time to test it out. While the word "wearable" may not come across to many of you as being linked to a portable music player, indeed, the new Sony...

Though many of the features and design of the Sony NWZ-W202 have been completed in a practial way that would most suit active and sporty users, we could not come to an agreement whether the W202 would be practical and suitable for "regular" users who...

Sony NWZ-W202 MP3 player

 

Wear your music on your ears with this all-in-one Sony MP3 player and headset

Decent sound quality, easy operation with Zappin

Bulky and limited scope for adjustment, integrated headphones

Sony’s NWZ-W202 MP3 player uses a combination of the novel Zappin shuffle technology and a unique form factor to set it apart from the crowd. While this approach may gain some fans, it also alienates those who want to use different earphones or who...

Sony W-Series Walkman (2GB review

 

There's more than one way to make a wireless MP3 player, and building it right into a set of water-resistant headphones is an excellent way to do that and ensure that it's ready to hit the gym right out of the box. This is the route Sony took with its...

The Sony W-Series Walkman offers an innovative, ultracompact design that incorporates an MP3 player into a pair of earbuds. It's easy to use and Sony includes a unique feature for browsing songs.

The Sony W-Series Walkman does not have a screen and will not be comfortable for all users.

If you're looking for a sweat-resistant, all-in-one solution for rocking out at the gym, the Sony W-Series Walkman will provide just that.
