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.
Great sound, brilliant OLED touchscreen, noise cancellation and as much YouTube as your Wi-Fi can handle. Shame about the extortionate price.
With a long battery life and features traditionally found on larger, more expensive players, the NW-E50 is a packed little powerhouse of MP3 playing power.
Sony's tricked-out speaker dock lets you set the fashion tone. It's also a decent — but not great — speaker dock.
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's new Android Walkman, currently dubbed the Sony Walkman Mobile Entertainment Player, is shaping up well with some cool music features and a massive 4.3-inch touchscreen. Running Android, you'll also get access to loads of downloadable apps.
The Sony Walkman NWZ-A829 is a truly superb player in terms of usability, sound quality and design. It's not without its fair share of flaws -- notably the tricky video support -- but for most people it's an absolute must to consider, if not run out and buy
The Sony Walkman NWZ-X1060 packs some excellent features, such as a vivid OLED screen, effective on-board noise-cancelling technology and truly great audio quality.

The Sony Walkman NWZ-X1050 certainly has some great features, such as a vivid OLED screen, on-board noise-cancelling technology and pristine audio quality. But it's expensive, the small screen makes for awkward Web browsing and video playback, and, overall, it's not as slick, easy to use or as feature-packed as the iPod touch
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.
It has none of the elegance of Apple's equivalent iPod Shuffle, but it's cheaper and has some very useful features, including a built-in screen, FM radio and recording capabilities. Minor concerns aside, the NWZ-B142F is good performer with an attractive price tag.
Sony's 20GB HD3 may not have the HD1's looks and battery life, but its native MP3 support and flashy new colors make it a better choice overall.
The new 'wire-free' Walkman sports a lighter, improved design and better waterproofing. It's set to ship in March for $99.99.
The X-Series is a superb choice for audiophiles who want a luxury device with an excellent touch-screen interface and plenty of other bells and whistles.
If you want a slick alternative to the iPod and you're into Sony's Connect music store, then the NW-HD5 is a stellar choice.
The NW-S200 Walkman proves once again that Sony knows what it's doing in the hardware department; fitness-minded users should take a close look at this flash MP3 player. But make sure you're comfortable with SonicStage before you commit.
Sony revives its Walkman line with the F800 and E470, but for the price you might as well buy a music-capable Android phone.
