Sony knows that there is still some more money to be made with the Walkman brand name, and hence has decided to go ahead and roll out the NWZ-B160F and B160 MP3 players. Wait a minute here – dedicated, standalone MP3 players in this day and age? That does not sound quite right, after all, isn’t even the most basic of feature phones these days are capable of functioning as a decent MP3 player? Well, perhaps there are still people out there who decide not to go convergence all the way, who knows?
Regardless of which model you pick, they will come with a one-touch boost button for rich, deep bass right where and when you want it. Running out of juice just when you are about to leave the home because you forgot to charge it? Fret not – the quick charge feature is capable of delivering up to 90 minutes of playback time from a mere 3 minutes’ worth of charging, now how about that? The detachable clip will attach the Walkman to clothing, belt or bag strap in a jiffy.
Transferring music is also a cinch, since it takes on the tried-and-tested drag-and-drop music file transfer method, while those who are looking for their favorite tunes amidst a mountain of songs can always check out the quick search ZAPPIN feature. Out in June later this year, we keep our fingers crossed for pricing details.
