The playback quality of the music and movies that we tested was very good and at its core the S544 is a decent PMP. Unfortunately it falls down in a number of areas including the Content Transfer software, limited format support, the lack of...

Better sound from your mobile? Don’t worry, we’re not talking about the MP3 player in general, just the external speakers. Although the use and/or existence of external speakers may hit a nerve with some of you (oh the joys of public...

If you want a small media player with built in stereo speakers, then the S544 is a pretty self-recommending choice. It does everything you would expect a modern Walkman to do and the speakers make a better fist of things than you might expect. But...

AudioI’ve never had too much to complain about with regard to Sony’s audio offerings in their media devices. They may not be the most impressive but they are better than most. The tone quality can be enhanced with the set of EQ presets that...

Anyone hoping the Walkman NWZ-S544 would score as well as the will be disappointed. While in isolation it's still a decent media player, it's something of a step if not necessarily backwards, then definitely sideways from its S Series...

Sony's Walkman NWZ-S544 looks and feels classy thanks to its shiny red metal design. It has a slightly bigger screen than the NWZ-E443 and built-in speakers, which are activated using a dedicated switch. As expected, they sound weedy and distort...

International Review By PriceRunner Blog on -

Afspilleren fra Sonys S-serie har ikke ligeså mange smarte funktioner som X-Serien: der er ingen Wi-Fi og ingen støjreducerende funktion. Skærmen er en almindelig 320×240 TFT i stedet for et widescreen OLED-panel, og den er ikke...

International Review By Les Numériques on 80

Les écouteurs sont médiocres, mais pas autant que les haut-parleurs. Le S se prévaut de lire des vidéos mais dans les faits, c'est loin d'être le grand bonheur. Heureusement les piliers de base que sont la très...
