A great ‘first Sony MP3 player’ for younger music lovers, the compact, colourful WALKMAN NWZ-B150 series offers great sound with pumping bass you can really feel.
Despite its ultra-compact size, the WALKMAN B150 Series makes its presence felt with full, rich sound. A handy button provides an instant bass boost, confirmed by flashing red Power Illuminator LEDs.
The built-in USB connection links WALKMAN directly to your computer with no cables or extra software needed: just drag and drop to load up your favourite tracks. The direct USB connection also allows easy music transfer and direct recording or playback with compatible Mini/Micro audio systems.
Operation is clear and simple, with a 3-line LCD showing track and artist information. At a touch, ZAPPIN technology scans through stored tracks, playing a short sample from each song to help you pinpoint the right track.
If you’re in a hurry, a 3-minute charge gives this Sony MP3 Player enough power for 90 minutes listening, while a fully charged battery offers up to 18 hours non-stop play time.
The WALKMAN B150F series adds an FM tuner for enjoying your favourite radio shows wherever you are. You can also store voice notes or radio broadcasts with the on-board recorder.
Optional accessories for the WALKMAN NWZ-B150 series include the CKA-NWU10 sports armband — an ideal addition for keeping Walkman secure while you’re exercising or just hanging out.
The WALKMAN NWZ-B150 series is part of the full line-up of MP3 and MP4 players by Sony. The WALKMAN range includes the high-performance X series with touchscreen and Digital Noise Cancelling technology; the ultra-slim A series with wide 7.1cm (2.8″) OLED screen; the S series with built-in speakers; the compact, great-sounding E series; and the wearable W series for sports.
The new WALKMAN NWZ-B150 Sony MP3 player comes in a range of colour variations black, blue, pink and red and is available from early June 2010.
