The Sony Walkman NW-ZX2 is a luxury portable high-res audio player with Android streaming apps, a premium build and excellent sound, but its high price may be too much for all but the most dedicated music lovers.

REVIEW

Western Digital WD TV Media Player ( 2014)

While not for everyone, the WD TV's adroit playback of video and music files makes it the perfect living room box for people with large digital media collections.

Apple iPod touch - digital player  - Apple iOS 8
REVIEW

Apple iPod touch

The latest iPod Touch is the best iPod ever, and as close to a phoneless iPhone 5 as you can get -- but its high price makes it a tough call versus cheaper tablets with larger screens.

Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2
REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2

The Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 is a smart phone without the phone bit. Unable to make calls, this Android-powered gadget is built with apps, music, video and web browsing in mind. It offers a big, bright screen and an attractive design, but it's only powerful enough to cope with more basic apps.

Cowon D3
REVIEW

Cowon D3

The Cowon D3 Plenue media player offers great video and audio quality. Unfortunately, its tweaked Android 2.3 Gingerbread software is buggy, making the device frustrating to use and difficult to recommend.

REVIEW

Sony Walkman NWZ-E453

The Sony Walkman NWZ-E453 isn't quite as slick or good-looking as its iPod rivals, but its simplicity, affordability and portability make it a worthy competitor none the less. Overall, it's a winner.

Sony Walkman NWZ-B152
REVIEW

Sony Walkman NWZ-B152

Sony's NWZ-B152 is a disappointing re-release of its B142F Walkman MP3 player. The good battery life and fast charging don't do much to make up for the outdated design, awkward menus, average audio quality and horrible jog-dial.

Samsung Galaxy Player 50
REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy Player 50

The Android-based Samsung Galaxy Player 50 aims to knock Apple's iPod touch off its pedestal, but fails. A number of flaws mean this media player feels rushed and generally unimpressive.

REVIEW

Sony Walkman NWZ-A846

The Sony Walkman NWZ-A846 is a great audio player with a useful noise-cancellation feature and a brilliant OLED screen. It's expensive, but it's definitely worth a look.

Apple iPod shuffle 4th gen

Simple yet elegant navigation and a useful VoiceOver feature make the fourth-generation Apple iPod shuffle a great little device.
