Very good sound, very good product, but expensive
Pros: Great sound, portable, good UI, Android allows to use Spotify and other apps; equalizer applies to walkman as well as applications (Spotify, Youtube, etc, which is AMAZING).
Cons: Battery life is not the greatest even after system update (in fact I think the 2nd update reduced the battery life vs the 1st update); a 10-Band equalizer (or even more bands, or parametric EQ, to tweak the bass region) would be great, maybe in a future update? A more powerful amp would make it more versatile and beat the competition. The price, at time of purchase (but seems to have decreased since then).
