What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony NW-A45 3.1 Inch Touch Display High Resolution Audio Walkman 16 GB
  • The Nw-A45 is a quality digital audio player with a premium build and although plastic it still feels premium.
  • Sturdy design, small form factor so fits nicely in a breast pocket.
  • Despite being plastic, it's solid and well made.
  • The unit itself is smaller than i expected, mostly made out of plastic so is very light , easy to handle , but well put together nonetheless.
  • Reasonable price for what you get. Seems to be well made and not likely to fall apart in a few months.

What customers say about "Features"
Sony NW-A45 3.1 Inch Touch Display High Resolution Audio Walkman 16 GB
  • I listened through headphones and earphones, and it all sounded great.
  • The player is a delight to use, and even I got the hang of it pretty quickly - the user interface really is very good
  • Connecting to Bluetooth devices and wireless headphones were also very quick and simple.
  • The buttons have a nice easy to use layout on the side of the device which is handy to have so you can skip a track or adjust the volume or play/pause without getting it out of your pocket to look at the screen
  • The sound quality is excellent probably the best I have heard to date. It supports all main music formats such as mp3,AAC,FLAC and DSD.

What customers say about "Power"
Sony NW-A45 3.1 Inch Touch Display High Resolution Audio Walkman 16 GB
  • Can't comment on battery life as I've not had it long but so far so good (lasts me a few days on a single charge).
  • Overall this is a well made and well thought out player, battery life is good and the ability to play WAV, AIF, etc is a good plus point.
  • Sound is excellent as well as battery life, touch screen very responsive, SensMe channels are very useful
  • The battery is incredible, he uses this on a daily basis and only needs to charge this maybe once a week based on 6 hours play a day.
  • I don't use it a lot, about 5-6 hours a week and after 3 weeks use the battery indicator still shows full.
