Probably the “best” portable MP3 player I owned in my whole, entire life is a Sony Walkman MP3. I bought it back in around 2006 and it was like a 2GB MP3 player. What impressed me the most about that Sony MP3 player wasn’t that I couldn’t browse the web on it but the battery life was excellent. On just 1 minute charge, my Sony Walkman could go for 3 hours on full-out volume.
That’s what the Sony NWZ-W252 is all about, it’s an MP3 player/radio that’s also a sports-earbud. This is simply the best MP3 player in the world for listening to music while you work out. Besides that, Sony has mastered their earbuds, I’ve tried countless MDR-series earbuds which are one of the best in the world.
If you need a water-resistant, MP3 player that will go 11 hours straight while you go run the marathon next month, and keeps the noise out, the Sony NWZ-W252 is definitely for you.
