The Sony Walkman range has become iconic since their tape players a few decades ago. Their CD players have taken on their expertise in the production of music players and the D-EJ775 continues this great tradition.
In this day and age when CDs are gradually dying out, it can still be great to dig out your old collection and play them on a long train journey or while relaxing outside. As far as modern portable CD players go, Sony are still on top of the game with exceptionally high-end products rolling out of the factory.
The first thing you notice with the Sony Walkman is the styling. They have done a great job in creating a very simple shape and style and keeping to it for a couple of decades. The metallic covering is simple, yet stylish and the screen, buttons and jacks have clean lines and a smooth finish.
The second thing you notice is the quality of the sound that the Walkman produces. CDs with stereo sound are immacutately translated into a very good split of sound between your two ears. It is sometimes surprising to go from high quality digital versions you downloaded onto your computer and listen to 'old' technology only to find that the quality is still impeccably high.
Last, but not least, the Sony Walkman series is rightly reknowned for its longevity and good quality of build. Having owned a number of different versions, I have never had a problem or seen any deterioration in sound quality over time. With their shock-proof technology, it is great how you can listen to discs while on a run, while walking or on a jumpy underground ride.
