You can`t help but feel a bit retro when walking around with this discman from Sony, as we`re in a day of age with the iPods and the mp3-players that are so tiny that you must be careful so you don`t inhale them by accident... Now, I love my portable cd-player from Sony, because it allows me to play my favorite albums at all times, whether it`s on the bus or when out jogging... All though when jogging I usually do it in company with my mp3-player... I`m so glad that these are still around, because sometimes what you want is to listen to your cd`s, and on a long train journey or on the flight from Paris to London, what`s more perfect?
Honestly, this is the perfect portable cd-player! First of all, the sound coming out of this product is great, very comfortable to listen to and not at all high pitched. This player can present rap just as much as jazz songs, it delivers bass when it needs to and remains smooth and gentle when easy listening is what you want. What concerned me with this product was whether it would skip a beat when driving in bumby terrain, but with ESP this is not a problem! The player itself is a light weight, so it`s no hazzle transporting it around, and with a slick and thin design, it looks really good and modern as well! Now, the very best part about this portable cd-player, is the incredible length of battery! You can listen to this player for nearly twenty four hours using the same batteries, and then, if wanting more, you can simply replace the old ones with rechargeable batteries, having another give or take 20 hours of playing time! That to me is amazing and contributes to making this a superb product! The cd-player is very standard and easy to use, getting to know it should be no problem... I spent the sum of 79.99 on this portable cd-player, but I`ve seen it costing both more and less around town...
My conclusion must simply be that this portable cd-player from Sony is a very good purchase, I am very pleased with it and believe that you would be too!
Now, I don't want to seem behind of the times as I am completely up to date with internet shopping, and I realise that this is a more modern way of collecting music, but I still prefer to purchase a hard copy of my favourite music in order to get the case, the leaflet and the physical CD - it just feels better.
Therefore I decided that getting a portable CD player was the right way to go, rather than keep ripping the CD onto my computer and adding it to my MP3 player, which despite being perfectly legal (as far as I understand) threw many warnings, cautions and accusations of copyright infringement.
I chose the Sony D-EJ player as it is well priced, attractive and made by a reliable brand (in my opinion), I didn't expect it to have any special features as a CD player can only really be expected to play CDs. For that reason I was amazed to find that I can actually write a list of features that make this product special.
-The sound is extremely high quality, higher than I would normally expect from such a product.
-There is an anti skip protection system installed, which works amazingly well as even scratched CDs seem to play fluidly, without interruption.
-The battery life is something to be commented on, even when the music is playing with the maximum volume settings selected it seems to go on forever without running out.
-Finally it is a lightweight product that won't cause too much of a hassle to carry around.
If you, like me, have a collection of CDs then buying this product may leave you pleasantly surprised, especially if you remember the days when CD players were all the range, yet all rather average quality.
This is one incredible little cd player. The D-EJ915 is housed in a sleek, rugged aluminum case. All of the unit's functions can be accessed via a convenient backlit remote. It offers Sony's new G-Protection anti-skip system (very effective... I have not been able to make the player skip!) Two levels of bass extension. Excellent 23-hour battery life with the internal rechargeable batteries, increases to 57 hours with the included battery pack.It is very small and light.The audio is amazing, and it makes it sound twice as well produced. The song is great, and the player is great for road trips, plane trips, or just quiet listening at home.I'm sure you will find that the Sony DEJ915 will be worth every penny you pay.
