The sound quality is very good.

The sound is great, the EQ options are very good, and the ear-buds it comes with are surprisingly good sound (and build) quality.

First of all, there is not doubt that this is a great music player. This is light weight, portable and my 8GB model has a good enough of space for my songs which is use mostly at gym and at work. Sound quality of the headphones is not that great, but also not bad if you don't want every minute details.Screen resolution is good. As a simple music player and a good alternative to ipod shuffle/nano in terms of price and screen size,i think this will be a great buy if one can live with the below drawbacks.
--The player starts off with a light press of any buttons (mind you the buttons are big). That means when you keep it in jeans pocket and a light press on any of the button will start of the player. That means drainage of battery. Gave me around 20 hrs of battery life on my first charge. This might be because 90% of the time when i took this out of my pocket, i found this switched on accidentally. Wish sony has a dedicated on/off switch for this
--Headphone wire gets entangled easily
--No shortcut key to navigate to the current songs.

Summary:
This is not a bad player, but there are some very annoying quirks. However, it is significantly cheaper than the iPod Nano. Plus, unlike some players, the case does not feel like it is cheap or will easily break. I have used the device for a month and have not noticed any quality issues.

Note: I use this for listening to music at work. I cannot comment on how the unit handles podcasts or audio books.

Good
- Feels solid
- Small and light
- Bright screen
- Good sound quality
- Gets good reception on the FM radio
- Can handle playlists of over two thousand songs
- Random mode seems to truly play the songs randomly (some players do not seems to truly randomize the song order)
- Can return to a playlist were you left off after listening to the FM radio for a while
- Can play unit for multiple days without recharging the battery
- Charges quickly
- Cheaper than Apple

Bad
- Cannot turn off the player. It will only turn off when left idle for 24 hours (see my comment below from Mar 4, 2012 were I explain how you know this to be true).
This is a big issue which impacts the battery life if you do not use the device heavily. Do not expect to use this device for a few hours every week and still have it last for 24+ hours of usage.
- When left idle for 24 hours device can no longer resume playing the pervious song.
- Have to learn the propriety Sony media player (Media Go)
- Cannot integrate with iTunes (despite Sony's description of the unit). The Sony media player (Media Go) can read iTunes files however.
o Cannot read AAC files purchased from the iTunes store.

I love! love! LOVE! this mp3 player! I got it to replace a Sansa Fuze that developed hard disk and earphone jack issues in less than 30 days. I have used a Creative Nomad Zen for over 10 years and it still works, but it's very large compared to newer players, and the hard drive crashes when I plug the USB in now, so I really wanted a second player. Even though I had a great experience with it overall, Creative's products cost 3 to 4 times the price of this Sony, and I just did not want to spend that much on one right now.

I was nervous to get the NWZ-E465 because of a review that said it had no 'off' button (it does) and no volume control (it has), but I looked at it in a "brick-and-mortar" store before I bought it. It's one of the RARE 16 GB players, which I really need!! 8 GB is not enough, IMO, if you are a total music-head like me. :) The BATTERY LIFE is AMAZING! I use the player 7-8 hours a day, look at the screen quite a lot because I have a lot of brand new music on it, switch between playlists and do other things that cause the backlight to come on over and over, and still go 3 to 4 days between charges. The charging items I purchased in an accessory kit for the Fuze work with the Sony, and it also charges via USB.

Unlike some people who have reviewed players, I don't have a problem or issue creating playlists in Windows Media Player. And after they are created, if you want to add new songs to any existing playlist, you edit it in list pane (WMP has a button for doing this) and drag the new songs in, arrange in whatever song order you want or let it shuffle them, and then sync the playlist to the Sony via USB with the WMP sync tab. Songs transfer really fast and it is pretty painless to make changes to your playlists.

This is a decent mp3 player.

Like:
1. Good battery life. Have it running for over 12 hours and there are still 2 bars left in the battery indicator. I assume I can get 20 to 30 hours playing time. Not sure if it is possible to get to 50 hours, as sony advertised. Also there is a "battery saver" feature in the options. Not sure what exactly it does. My impression is that it will prevent the battery from charging to 100%, so as to slow down the degradation of battery over the years. Only time can tell if it works.

2. Good sound quality. The caveat is that sound quality has a lot to do with the the type of mp3 file played (encoding quality) and the type of earphones (I used my good old Sennheiser) as well. I have seen some "scientific" testing on the frequency responses of various mp3 players, the differences are very small and probably not noticeable by humans. Also this is intended for a daily commute on a noisy subway train, not an audiophile device. There are also quite a few digital "gimmicks" to enhance the audio profile.

3. Drag-and-drop file transfer. The device has to be mounted as a MTP device. Not as convenient as itune, but you don't have to rely on the integrated management software (MeGo? why should I bother to install another piece of crappy software on my computer)

4. Bright and responsive screen. It can show photos and play videos. But I really don't see any use of that: the screen is just too small.

5. Decent user interface. The sensitivities of the buttons are adequate, the organization of menus is reasonable. However, I don't think it's as good as ipod family products.

Dislike:
The whole thing is made of plastic. I can see why some people complained the surface can be easily scratched.
