“Lovely small gadget”

Written on: 03/11/2011 by HarryJohnson80 (6 reviews written)

A lovely small gadget. The functions are great and so is the music quality. The headphones provided are also much better than the average ones you get. However after 7 months the connection and controls began to malfunction and not work. Massive shame. Due to the design… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/04/2006 by rogerchoi (1 review written)

This little Sony NWE-405 player is compact, looks good, has great sound quality, plays MP3s and ATRAC files very well. Start-up time is very quick compared to any other players. Menu navigation is easy to scroll through. As long as you don't need extra features like voice recording and FM tuner, this player is the best!!!… Read Full Review

“The Sony NWE-405 MP3 player has nice text, it is easy...”

Written on: 18/02/2006 by mewmusic (1 review written)

The Sony NWE-405 MP3 player has nice text, it is easy to handle, and it has a nice display. It has a modern and simple design, and it is a good size. It has a lot of options, and also comes with a good program for the computer. A lot of songs can be fitted onto it because the computer program that comes with it compresses the files. It also charges quickly.


The quick start guide/information that comes with it isn't very clear, and it doesn't tell you how to do everything. It's a case of just… Read Full Review

“The Sony NWE-405 MP3 player does not read all MP3...”

Written on: 28/09/2005 by priscillareinedudesert (1 review written)

The Sony NWE-405 MP3 player does not read all MP3 files (apparently the Sonic Stage software converts all files into the Atrac format, but for some files it does not work); I got the "cannot play" message for many of the MP3 files that I had and could read on my computer. When I called tech support, they told me that that's just the way it is. well, that's just NOT why I decided to buy an MP3 player! I am returning it tomorrow!!… Read Full Review
