Sony Walkman S Series
Sony has launched another new series of walkmans in a range called the S-Series. This series comprises of two excellent mp3 players, the NWZ-S639F with a storage capacity of 16GB and the NWZ-S638f with 8GB capacity.
Both the Sony S-Series walkmans have an incredible sound quality the credit for which go to the three in-built super audio technologies, the Clear Stereo, Clear Bass and DSEE digital sound enhancement. They work in sync to produce the most realistic sounds such as you would hear at a live concert.

A powerful Normaliser maintains a perfect balance in the volume between songs. The SensMe technology helps categorise your music into different moods at the mere touch of a button. The 5-Band equaliser with four preset and two custom settings produces the finest sound mix for your music.
The built-in FM-Tuner enables you to skip and change between music and video libraries and radio programmes. It comes already set with 30 channels giving you a great selection of stations to tune in to.
You can watch your videos on the superb quality playback in excellent colours and picture quality which are further enhanced by the advanced video formats such as the mp3, AAC, WMA (DRM), AVC, MPEG4 and JPEG. The Walkman comes preloaded with 8 music videos which include tracks from the Ting Tings, Sandi Thom and Chris Brown. You can even set a picture of your own choice as a backdrop.
The Drag and Drop facility helps you easily drag and drop content and Podcasts straight away from Windows Media Player 11, Windows Explores or iTunes onto your walkman. Managing your playlist and shuffling your files is simple and takes only a few seconds.
The phenomenal battery life lasts up to 40 hours of continuous use giving you uninterrupted entertainment. The other features include a mega bright 2.0’ QVGA LCD screen that exhibits clear-cut photos, videos and album art in portrait or widescreen format. It is so light in weight, weighing only 46g that you can hardly feel that you are carrying it. Its easy to manoeuvre menus, are enabled by the short cut icons that are generally seen on mobile phones.
All the three walkmans are also compatible with the BBC iPlayer making it easy to download your favourite programmes from the BBC channels straight onto your Sony S-Series mp3/mp4 player. Since all the portable media devices do not have Internet connectivity, streaming is not possible and hence programmes can only be downloaded from the iPlayer website onto your media player though you will need to sync through the Windows Media Player.
The Sony S-Series NWZ-E368F is similar in design and technology but for the storage capacity. The NWZ-E368F’s storage capacity of 8GB allows it to store 2000 music tracks or 30 hours of video whereas the NWZ-E369F with its 16GB storage can save up to 4000 music tracks or 60 hours of video. Both the walkmans are available in black, silver and red colours and are priced at £99 (NWZ-E368F) and £129 (NWZ-E369F) respectively.
