The Sony E Series NWZ-E473 4GB Walkman Video/MP3 Player (Red) provides up to 36 hours of continuous music playback or up to six hours of uninterrupted video playback on a single charge. You can enjoy photos, album artwork and videos on the ultra-bright 2" color LCD display with 320 x 240 QVGA resolution. Or, you can sing along to your favorite songs as the karaoke mode scrolls the lyrics to the latest hits across the screen. The E Series Walkman provides drag-and-drop file transfers for easy uploading of your music, pictures and video from either iTunes or Windows Media Player (WMP).

The E Series also features Sony's exclusive Clear Audio technologies, which include Clear Stereo, Clear Bass and a Digital Sound Enhancement Engine. The technology is designed to restore the clarity and depth of digitally compressed music. Plus, with the integrated dynamic equalizer, you can select a preset genre setting or dial in your own with a custom EQ curve. For added convenience, Sony ships the E Series Walkman with a high-quality pair of EX headphones, so you're ready to go as soon as you open the box.

The E Series Walkman is loaded with accoutrements above and beyond most MP3 players. It has a built-in digital FM tuner, a clock function with alarm and an integrated microphone for voice recording. It even comes preloaded with two games to keep you occupied on your daily commute. Sony also outfitted the device with their SensMe application, which automatically groups your music into separate channels based on beats-per-minute. That way, when you're relaxing you can listen to only relaxing music and when you're working out, you'll only get up-tempo tracks.

I have owned many mp3 players, ipod, polaroid, and so on, this walkman outshines them all! it is $50 cheaper than the new ipod nano, and yet it is so much better. if you want a reliable, user friendly, fun to use mp3 player,,, sony is the clear choice!


Walkman Fever!!


I absolutely love this walkman!! It is very user friendly and has great features. The earbuds that come with it are the first ones that I can actually stand to use and I love them!! They have great sound quality and fit nicely in your ear. The software you are given for the walkman is super easy to use as well. I want all things walkman!! Great product!!


Completely Pleased


Had other mp3 players of other brands comparable to this one. They either did not have the ease of navigaion or sound quality as my Sony. I am very happy and pleased to have bought this instead of the extremely higher priced big brand names. Thanks, Sony, for a great product.
