No need for one but that's a great deal.

The image suggests it's supplied with a pair of Sony MDR-EX85 earphones which are actually £34.99 on their own at Play.com. (or £32.05 at Amazon). http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronics/4-/3317643/Sony-MDR-EX85-In-Ear-Headphones/Product.html?cm_mmc=Froogle-_-Electronics-_-Portable-_-Sony%2BMDR-EX85%2BIn%2BEar%2BHeadphones%2B(Black)&source=5065&engine=froogle_electronics&keyword=Sony+MDR-EX85+In+Ear+Headphones+(Black)

Do you know if this mp3 player allows you to avoid the use of the sonic stage software. If it does I'll would get it over the stone plus spkr.

Almost definitely come with the player, ive never seen sony or any of the big brands picture the wrong earphones.

Its almost worth it for the earphones alone

Except its not rechargeable and uses those crummy AAA batteries

yeah good point, I guess it boils down to whether you'd rather pay a little over £10 for double the memory and stick in your one of your own rechargeable AAs (not tripple) or stick with half the memory but the added bonus of an internal battery.

It also boils down to the fact that the Sony is a much better looking player, has a decent pair of earphones to start with and has a brand name that most users would not try to hide .. unlike wharfdale :whistling:

This place http://www.nw-e016.info/ says that in Japan they came with the high end [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]MDR-EX90SL earphones. No guarantees it will be the same here but clearly thought of highly enough by Sony for them to supply decent earphones over there.[/SIZE][/FONT]

I simply pointed out the fact it has double capicity for just over a tenner more, i didn't say it was a better offer, better sound quality or aesthetic appeal... :p

Hello.

Forgive me if I'm missing something; but if you enlarge both ear phone images - they look similar but are clearly not the same?:o

There certainly aren't any models below the EX85 with the same aesthetics though either. If this has the EX90's then it's even more of a steal.

I think the headphones that come with it are MDR-EX82, which are basically the same.

I understand. Thanks for the clarification.

The only Sony Walkmans that ship with better headphones are the video walkmans. All others ship with standard ones.

Hi oska.. Can you tell us all what makes you being so sure? We're all waiting for your 6th post mate..
#19
to everyone interested, and f.a.o oska in particular.. check out this item on fleabay.. are this the headphones that it may come with? ''cause if they are, then i don't think I want another pair.. But I guess that we can use the decent pair that came with the £30.00 w810i a while ago.. They're pretty decent aren't they?

The headphones you see in the picture are the ones that come with the player.

#21
I don't suppose there's any way of getting Play.com to clarify? The player's still a good deal but is badly represented if the earphones are vastly inferior.

What have I started now, lol :)

Hi gd_miester.. as you have probably read already in the above posts, it's been raised to our attention that the two earpieces that we can all see in your picture are different from one another..now..which one of those two types would you think they'll throw in the box??
#23
After much searching, it seems the earphones pictured are the MDR-EX082. I only found this place that sells them over here though and they seem to be going for b*gger all on ebay.

They are the same, just a different angle. As above picture will clarify.
#25
I'm a bit of a luddite when it comes to MP3 players. :oops:

Will I be able to use iTunes with this (I'm a Mac user)

Thanks!
#26
The pics of the earphones are of the same model at different angles. The only models that ship with these are the A series range of Video Walkmans, not even the S series Photo Walkmans ship with them. The model in the deal is the old entry level E series, which has been superceded by the B series, these have the standard phones.

As I discovered on my recent 'earphone purchasing adventure' the reason these have such low eBay value is because there are literally thousands of fakes doing the rounds. The genuine versions are supposed to be good though.

My mum is after a new MP3/Ipod so I've been looking around for her.. she was advised to get an Apple nano thingy majiggy (I don't use one so have no idea) but they're so expensive and I'm not sure why she's been advised to get one. This sony one looks like a much better deal to me.. what's the difference? what does a nano do that this wont?

Sorry if I sound thick, I really have no idea:oops:
#30
JUST To clarify can you use it without sony software ? drag + drop it, etc ??? thanks.. stuff the headphones.use it in the van via the hi-fi... or pop in a decent normal pair.. ha
#31
Nope, Sonicstage I'm afraid.
#32
funkymartin have you seen the 2gb sony one at play?

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/166011/sony-nwdb105wc-2gb-drag-and-drop-mp/
#33
Yes mate, got ur mess, replied, ok. this black one is only pre-order at min, anyway.. none in stock. think ill get another drag + drop one, ha. martyn
#34
Well I ordered one of these and its status has moved to 'packing' even though it's not due for release until 25th April. If it does get delivered sooner I'll let you know what turns up. If the headphones are ****** normal ones when it turns up, it will be going straight back!
#35
I'm not sure why this is being sold as a Pre-Order model as it is a discontinued model in the range. I imagine it will be a final run of leftover stock.
Model pictured in stock for considerably more but with the correct headphones.

I found some of these on ebay as well and they appear to have standard headphones - I'm living in hope because I want the player for the gym so good snug fit is important... Whoever gets these first then please post.

Edit - just checked another ebay pic and they have the same phones as in the op's post - have e-mailed to confirm.
#40
so has anyone received one? can you confirm which earphones were shipped?
