TechRadar's verdict

"Sony's NWA-829 is in some way its most accomplished Walkman yet. It sounds better than the iPod (largely thanks to a decent headphone bundle) but it's messy UI and lack of killer features does little to pull it ahead of the pack"
  • Great headphones Sounds better than the iPod Small and slim with decent build quality Bluetooth - if that's your bag
  • Counter-intuitive controls Iffy user interface Screen is too small for watching anything other than short clips No Bluetooth headphones It still can't beat the iPod
