The Sony Walkman has come a long way over the 30-plus years since its inception. We've seen it evolve from a portable cassette player to the Discman to a MiniDisc player and then finally into the line of impressive MP3 players we have before us today--you can even find it wrapped into Sony Ericsson cell phones. If you're after a sleek design, plentiful features, stellar sound quality, and top-notch battery life, the Walkman is a good place to start. Our Sony Walkman resource page keeps you informed with the latest news, photos, and videos of the players, as well as helpful reviews as soon as we write them.
