Our Verdict 
Neat looking device but although the sound is detailed enough it's unexciting
Detailed sound
bass boost button
Lacks zip and vibrancy

This Sony player shares the Samsung YP-U4's USB stick form-factor, and its black and silver colour scheme makes for a neat-looking device.

If you're planning on dragging and dropping through Apple iTunes remember that the Sony is only compatible with MP3 and WMA files, and not Apple's AAC format.

You'll find a useful button on the unit that boosts bass – without it, bass weight is non-existent.

Overall, music sounds detailed enough but it requires greater zip and vibrancy.
