      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I bought this Walkman for £25 a couple of months ago half price in the sale. I remember this Walkman costing around £65 only a few years ago. It features a digital non-RDS FM and MW tuner and a basic cassette player. The tuner has 20 pre-sets and the cassette player allows you to automatically play the other side without turning the tape over. It was supplied with cheap freebie in the ear headphones which to me sound absolutely awful, the bass is hard and booming with the bass boost on and it sounds to quite and polite without it. The vocals sound harsh and unnatural and the treble can be unbelievably harsh with the bass boost as this facility simply just artificially increases the frequencies at both ends of the scale. Fortunately though I have a pair of Sennheiser HD495 headphones which cost around £60 which I use with my HI-FI separates. With these phones with both the tuner and cassette the vocals sound natural if not entirely rich like it does on my Sony ST SE300 tuner. The guitars have a bit of crunch to them and the bass is perhaps a little weak but it never gets out of control. However if you use the bass boost then the bass goes all over the place, the vocals start screaming and the treble is harsh but the tonal balance is good without the boost on. One of the major problems with the sound quality is it lacks detail but what do you expect from a £40 Walkman? I am comparing it to a £700 HI-FI! In conclusion it sounds very good with more expensive headphones but awful with the supplied ones. The bass boost (like most similar products) useless and only designed to be used with the freebie phones. It easy to use and the digitally operated tuner is a bonus.
