    The Sony 40th Anniversary Walkman Thread

    Yes, the design looked a little too amateurish, IMHO. I also don't see how this type of utility device would benefit from having a 2.5D screen. I think it's safe to see many would prefer durability over the limited benefit of a flowing screen.

      I'm eagerly awaiting for it to officially drop, but, now that it's taken so long, I'm honestly considering getting another (used) PHA-3 and calling it a day. Not sure what I'll end up doing.

    Best Portable MiniDisc

    I still have this and I'll never forget: I saved up about $250 and blew the whole wad on this when I started high school many, many moons ago. It's built like a tank, and it runs on one AA battery -- not to mention the battery compartment can charge a battery within the unit as well...

    MP3 phones: worth bothering? best model?

    W995 has gotten terrible reviews when compared to other phones in its price range (N86, Innov8, etc)...I would try to pick up an N96, an old N81, an iPhone, or like many have said, go with a basic phone and then put the rest towards a dedicated player. Further, the W995 is extremely...

    Is the zune any good

    I loved my Zune 30... ...up until it randomly died on me several months ago. I personally think the interface was cleaner and much easier to navigate than an iPod Classic, and the sound, like many have mentioned, was absolutely top-notch. If the Zune SW supported Last.FM, it would...

    Head-Fi'ers Mobile Phone Choice

    Nokia N95, 5800, and N80. I go through mobile phones like crazy, but my primary device is my N95. I never listen to audio from the headphone jack as there is a noticeable hiss, but the speakers on it are amazing. Given that Nokia S60 devices can have built in support (mobbler) and...

    Sony Ericcson Walkman series better than ordinary Sony Ericsson phones?

    SE walkman phones do not have dedicated audio chips, where as some high-end Nokia's and Samsungs do. The sound of a SE and say, an N96, don't even compare: the N96 just reproduces sound far better. ...further, there is only one high-end SE that has a 3.5mm jack built-in to the unit, where as...

    iPod Touch - Battery life

    Battery life is good enough, especially considering what the device is doing while on eis using it under "harsh" conditions (wifi/music/touching it constantly). ...I only ever notice the battery getting slammed while I'm playing Tower Defense and listening to music at the same time.
