This is one of the best CD players I've used. I listen to a lot of Books on Tape and this player picks up exactly where you leave off even if you stop it to do something else for awhile. It's fairly good about playing scratched CDs and has not jumped while I have been working out in the yard or walking with it. The ear phones are OK but get bit irritating after wearing them for a time. If you are looking for a good CD portable player without the radio, this is it. It is pretty light on battery use also.

When I first began listening to CDs with this Sony player I was not impressed with the sound as it lacked presence and clarity. I played with some of the functions, such as the Mega bass boost, which resulted in too much bass, then I tried using the AVLS automatic volume limiter - a function I have no use for.
I found my answer through a careful read of the instructions regarding "G" protection, which is an anti-skip function that when turned on (G-on), and which is how my unit was set from the factory, the sound quality is just ok. You can improve the sound quality greatly by following these steps to disable G protection: With the unit turned off, press and hold down the fast forward button, then press the play button while looking at the display window. As you continue to hold down the fast foward button, press and release the play button and every time you do you will see the display readout cycle from G-off to G-on to G-off..etc. If you leave it on "G-off" you will benefit from the best sound this unit can produce. I'm using Grado SR-60i headphones, and the sound (in a quiet room) is simply astounding.

I received my Sony D-EJ011 CD Walkman a few days ago from Amazon.com. While I have not had it long enough to speak of it's long term durability, I would like to share my initial thoughts and impressions.

I had a very specific task for this item when I purchased it. My wife and I collect CDs. We buy some new here from Amazon, but 90% of them we buy second hand from Amazon Marketplace, yard sales and flea markets. We do not currently have a home audio setup. We mostly use our iPods right now. Sometimes on a weekend we may buy as many as 50 CDs and sometimes it takes me awhile to get them all ripped to my laptop. Lots of times I want to try out a CD in questionable condition, or just want to play it and haven't ripped it yet. This is where I will mostly use the D-EJ011. I also just wanted to have another PCDP just for fun and who knows when they are going to quit making these things, most have already disappeared. I had a tough time finding a new one that wasn't total junk for a reasonable price.

Which brings me to the $29.99 price. When compared to my iPod touch... well.. Hey look, we are talking about a $300 product against a $30 product and I don't think that's a fair comparision. Is the touch 10x better for 10x the price? Yes. Probably 100x better, but for me this PCDP had a very specific purpose and it wasn't to be my main portable music player. I've read a lot of reviews on this player before I bought it and I despite all the negative comments, I took a chance on it and I'm glad I did.

BATTERY COMPARTMENT - I've read a lot of comments on the battery compartment. I think that has been blown way out of proportion. I have large, fat, Diabetic fingers. I also have an ounce of common sense. I found it very easy to open the door and insert the batteries.

I bought this to while away the 40 minute bus ride to work. It's a great little machine. Simple and straightforward, compact and easy to operate. The battery life is good. I'm at about hour 10 and still going strong. Actually the battery insertion is not the easiest, and the earphones that come with it are not very good; mine were broken on the second day (mysteriously, a wire poked through the earpiece) so make sure you have your own. But as I said the player works great, and the battery life is good. As for the battery insertion - actually the battery removal, take the innermost battery out first.

The motor on this thing burned out at 120 days. As it is out of its 90 day warranty (all but useless anyway), I now have a $30 piece of junk. This player has been treated with TLC, no drops, no bangs, no thumps, no mistreatment of any kind.

If you purchase this player, please listen to your motor. If it is giving off audible noises (it should be almost dead silent) so that you need to have the player further away from you just so the noise doesn't degrade the music, you are hearing the motor burn out. If you are within the warranty period, I suggest you return it immediately. Don't wait for the end.

On start up, if the unit does any searching at all to find the first track, or gives you a "no disk" message, you are looking at a failing player. It should just kick to the first track and play.

The earphones are pretty useless for me. They are "in ear" and if they don't fit, you'll quickly be looking for a new set. That's a questionable investment given the low manufacturing quality of the player.

The track programming is very limited. It works only in numeric sequence, i. e. track 1, 2, 3, etc. You cannot program say, tracks 3, 1, 2. Also the programming act itself is clumsy and difficult to get right.

The player just feels flimsy and cheap. I don't have any better suggestions, but this thing is not a first choice. Unfortunately cd players seem to be dieing off under the mp3 deluge.

Added 01/10/2013: Somehow I never got around to mentioning that the AM receiver was terrible. Only the very strongest stations are audible. If you need AM, say for sports, this is not your unit. Best wishes.
