I bought this as an upgrade to my Sony Noise Cancelling NWZ738 which I was using as my Rhapsody to go player -- now it is my wife's Rhapsody To Go player. The Walkman X has performed admirably as a replacement. It syncs flawlessly with Rhapsody and has the fantastic Walkman sound that I have come to love so much. The basis of my comparison: I will compare to the other Rhapsody players that I've owned -- Samsung P2, iRiver Clix2, Sony Walkman NWZ738 -- and since this is obviously targeted at the iPod Touch I will compare that also. As well, for full screen touch I am considering my Archos 604, 605 and 5 units. Lets just say I have an addiction to PMPs!

Here's what I love about my new Walkman X:

1. Sound -- as with my other Walkman, the sound is fantastic. I'm not exactly an audiophile but this is how I describe the sound: A powerful but crisp bass, a very full sound stage, very precise mids and highs, and no distortion that I can detect at all (believe me, with my UE 11 Pro earphones I can hear distortion on all of my other players!). To my ears, the combination of my UE earphones with the Walkman sound is as good as it gets in the portable world. Comparison: Clix 2 is crisp, you might even say bright, but lacks power on the lower end, Samsung P2 is a bit blurry -- especially with bass turned up the way I like it, Touch doesn't have the same fullness of sound nor does it have the driving bass, the Archos is not quite as crisp.

2. Display -- the OLED touch screen is beautiful to look upon. The colors are bright and vivid, and the images are big and bold and beautiful. I especially appreciate the album art which is displayed at a large enough size to really appreciate.

This is not a toy. This device is for people who love the best sounding music you can have in the palm of your hand. There is no comparing this quality with other units out there. I have to say the stock ear buds are fantastic. These alone would cost about $50. The noise canceling which is built into the player works very nice when paired with these ear buds. The stock ear buds are just fine probably for all that buy this device. I'm a stickler for putting anything in my ears, but these have very soft ear gels (you get three sizes) which fit smoothly and softly with comfort. Someone said in a previous review that the "plastic" ring around the outside... I'm not sure which player you have but there's nothing but solid metal around the outside that very elegantly dips at an angle for better handling ability. Built like a tank, surrounded in all metal case the build quality of that of Mercedes rather than Toyota. The display screen, well really can't get any better than the technology that is out there. This is the latest and greatest hot off the press people. For the guy who said the screen isn't bright? Did you check the 10 brightness level settings? In normal light you have to stick around a 5, or it just becomes too bright. The screen doesn't shine bright like others, which most do. This one has more of a beautiful glow which doesn't beam to kill your pupils. Remember, it is not how bright it is but how good it looks in all light surroundings. Perfect. I won't say much about the menus or playability. Everything has been laid out in quick and easy menus which only require a few taps to get your going. All players have this. Coupled with the OLED screen there's no reading or looking up ways to get somewhere. It's just that easy and precise. One thing. THIS IS NOT AN INTERNET TABLET.Read more ›

A little background for this review, I currently own both the Sony X-Series 32GB Walkman and the Zune HD 32GB. I got the Sony X-Series back in June of this year and I've had the Zune HD since it came out on Sept. 15th. I also own the iRiver iHP-120, iHP-140, iFP-899 and Sony PSP. I did own the Zune 30 and 80, both from their original launch, and sold both for $100 each in order to upgrade to the Zune HD. I have never owned an Apple iPod or iPhone but this is because I've gone down to the local Apple Store when the new models came out and hooked up my head phones and listened to the sound quality which I was not impressed with compared to the various players I've owned or currently own. As for a phone I use a Palm Pre. I am definitely an audio/videophile. I have about 2000 Cd's that I record at 320kbps and about 1800 music videos that I record from DVD to MPEG-4. I use my players to play only my top songs and videos so that every song and video is a favorite.

Sound Quality:
When I buy a player the first thing I look for is sound quality. So I toss out the headphones that every player comes with and use my own. Thus, I can't review the supplied headphones because I never tried them. Let's start with the sound customization settings. The X-Series has four EQ presets, and a choice to use no EQ. In addition, the X-Series has two user customizable settings with a five band EQ and an additional Clear Bass setting with 4 levels of Bass. The X-Series also has a VPT (Surround) setting with six ambient settings (Studio, Live, Club, Arena, Matrix, and Karaoke) along with a choice for no ambient setting. It also has a DSEE (Sound Enhance) setting, and a Clear Stereo setting.
