The Affordable Sony Walkman
Do you recall when the best music player around was the Sony Walkman? I still can recall my very first Sony Walkman that had the tape deck and AM/FM stereo. Until now, Sony keeps on making nothing but high quality gear, including its new Walkman, the S-544 Video MP3 player.
These days when people think of an MP3 player, the first thing that comes to mind is an iPod. However, Sony will shortly be changing that through its new Sony Walkman. The tape deck may be gone, but there are numerous other good features, including a high quality FM radio tuner.
As I previously stated, the Sony S-544 Walkman nonetheless has the FM radio receiver, but one thing that’s been included is the built-in stereo speakers. These make it so uncomplicated to share your music, plus you don’t have to have your head set hooked up all the time. At long last, there’s a Walkman for those who don’t want to use a head set constantly.
Not too long ago when I got my first Sony Walkman, I could basically record on tape songs that played on the radio. Not surprisingly, this feature is added in the new S-544 by Sony. You can not only capture songs directly from the radio, but you can also record school lectures or anything else you you’d like to save.
This outstanding device comes with a nice, bright 2.4-inch view screen, cool for viewing videos. Another terrific feature is this Walkman’s acceptance of various video formats, so no more tracking down all over for just the right file converter.
Let’s see . . . what else? Oh yeah – the Sony S-544 8 GB Walkman Video MP3 Player features an alarm clock installed. How convenient is this if you need a quick nap, but can’t chance oversleeping? And I haven’t even mentioned the convenient sleep timer for when you want to doze off while listening.
One of the outstanding features that I like about this player is the battery. You will be able to listen for no less than 42 hours of music without needing to recharge the battery. You can also view lots of video, approximately 6 1/2 hours worth, before needing to recharge the unit. That’s tons of time to view videos.
Also, the new Walkman from Sony comes in different colors including black, pink, red and violet. The Sony S-544 8 GB Walkman Video MP3 Players also are offered in either 8GB or 16 GB models, based on what you want. And the fact that the 8GB model can be purchased for $84. That’s a great price, considering that the comparable iPod is being sold for at least twice as much.
Sony S-544 player is one of the top-notch MP3 players in the market right now, and a terrific value at under $100.
