T he Sony NWZ-A826 is one of many MP3 players belonging to the Walkman A-series. This edition features 4GB flash memory, as well as a large and particularly clear 2.4 inch monitor; in additon the MP3 player offers several audio novelties, and all of this in a housing with a thickness of a mere 9.3 mm. The EX earplugs complete the package nicely and make it extremely attractive.

Sony MP3 player music quality

As you may expect from Sony; the music quality is excellent. An extremely clear sound that really proves the best with the aid of the special EX headset. The sound, even without settings, sounds bright and vivid and especially the bass proves exactly right. Furthermore, you have 4 audio technologies at your disposal: Clear Stereo, Clear Bass, VPT Surround and DSEE Sound Enhancer.


Sony NWZ-A826 ear plugs

The ear plugs look rather odd, they are a combination of earplugs and a normal earset in one. They do seal off the ear well and they clearly reproduce the sound. However, when you are outdoors in a somewhat noisy environment, you have to turn the volume up to 8 or higher, otherwise the earset works as earplugs normally do and the sound will be somewhat muffled.

Sony NWZ-A826 music player options

I really felt happy when I saw the amount of options. Almost everywhere in the menu, you can click on the ‘Option' button and a list will appear with an abundance of options. Did the amount of options already make me happy; when I saw the equalizer, my happiness was complete. The equalizer offers a number of preset settings: Heavy, Pop, Jazz, Unique and 2 custom settings to set your own preferred settings, which is easy thanks to the slide bars with figures. The many settings pleasantly surprised me. I was able to find everything I needed and more on this MP3 player. Want to know more about this Walkman MP3 player from Sony?
