Sony Walkman NWZ-E463
Finding a good MP3 players is a little like finding the Holy Grail, but the Sony Walkman NWZ-E463 seems to tick all the boxes that need ticking. Everyone’s requirements for an MP3 player are different, but for me, I need something with an excellent battery life, is light, relatively cheap and easy to use. The Sony Walkman NWZ-E463 is all those things and more.
Many people prefer Apple products, but I am totally against their closed environment, and find they have many limitations. The Sony Walkman NWZ-E463 is super easy to use, with the ability to easily drag and drop songs from one device to another. As I use a Linux based computer, this is particularly important.
The best thing about the Sony Walkman NWZ-E463 though, is its superb battery life. In every review or spec, it mentions that it has a 50 hour battery life. Now, normally, I take these things with a pinch of salt, but it genuinely is the case. In fact, I have had my Sony Walkman NWZ-E463 for two and a half months now, and have only charged it once. During that time, I have listened to it for a total of ten hours, and had it switched off the rest of the time. Even now, the battery shows at half charge – simply amazing!
The Sony Walkman NWZ-E463 has definitely been one of my best buys, and will be great for use on my sailing trip, and I hope it continues performing well enough to take on the next cycling expedition. They can be picked up for around the £45.00 mark off Amazon, which I think presents the best value for money when it comes to an MP3 player suitable for taking away travelling, cycling with, or using down the gym.
