Today, I am going to review my gadget, Sony Walkman NWZ- B152F, having 2GB memory.
Price- Rs 2890/-
The player's design is marvellous but some people may find it little bulky, but still, it got its looks. The player is 90.9 mm long, 23.3 mm wide and 15.2mm deep.It is available in 4 colours - Black, Pink, Red and Gold. It has a retractable cap in one side and the headphone connector in the opposite side. Opening the retractable cap you can see the USB connector. Almost at the centre the Ring for navigation is placed beautifully. There are 3 LEDs which will be activated by activating the BASS mode.

Since this is a B-series player, don't expect many things from this tiny friend. It can play both MP3 and WMA without any problems. It also got FM playback and voice and FM recording. It took almost 67 minutes to fully charge the device and the QUICK charge made it to run for almost 85 minutes with just 3 minutes charging. Zappin feature is provided in this player but I can't understand the use of Zappin in a device which got a display.
ZAPPIN™ enables you to “ZAP-in” to preview the chorus of the next track with a choice of either 4 or 15 seconds, making it easy to browse and find the track you want. Found your tune? Simply press the button again to “ZAP-out” to start playback from the beginning
Relative size with a Kingston Pendrive
Navigation and Buttons
navigation is done by moving the ring and selecting is done by the ...... button. Near the ring two buttons ZAP and BACK (HOME)are placed. REC, Volume controller and PLAY Mode selector are placed on one side where HOLD is on the other side. The screen is a good one with good interface (not cluttered) and good contrast.
REC, VOLUME, PLAY MODE
The sound quality is just brilliant and gets awesome with the BASS mode enabled. The bundled earphones are of good quality but switching to a Philips canal earphone the quality got increased, but still there is no need to buy another headphone if you aren’t an audiophile.
-Good sound quality
-Easy menu interface
-Presence of good features
-bundled earphones could be of better quality
-The retractable cap is easy to misplace
-Enabling Bass mode, battery drained quickly
Value for money- 5/5
Sound Quality- 4.5/5
