When you hear the word “Walkman” you almost certainly envision an 80s and 90s-era cassette player with AM/FM stereo and headphones. it is a so much cry from Sony Walkman B170 line that options little (only 28g or 1oz) colourful, and sound-rich MP3 players bearing the Walkman brand.
This latest update to the merchandise line guarantees wealthy and vibrant sound with a bass boost button to shore up the low-end that’s usually lacking in transportable devices. whereas the bass boost is enabled, the Walkman displays a color-matched LED on the front that pulses in time with the music.
Another feature price mentioning are a few things Sony calls “ZAPPIN” that scans your library and plays previews of every track. once you notice a song you wish to pay attention to you press the “ZAP” button to listen to the song in its entirety.
Battery life is actually an asset for the Sony B170. Sony B170 claims that 3 minutes charging time is all it takes for ninety minutes playback. therefore albeit you’re perpetually forgetting to charge your MP3 player before hitting the gym – like me – its nice to understand that a 3 minute fast charge can offer you enough battery life to form it through your workout. Once you get to the gym, clip it onto your clothing with the included clip, power it on and you’re able to go. a totally charged Walkman gets approximately eighteen hours of battery life.
Sony B170 is providing a 2GB and 4GB version with the 2GB holding approximately 440 songs and also the 4GB 990. The new Walkman B170 connects your pc via and in-built USB connector (as long as you are running Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7). Transferring music from your computer to your Walkman is finished via a drag-and-drop method with no have to be compelled to install further software.
