what happened to quality?
from Austin Tx
Comments about Sony CD Walkman - Silver:
About 7 years ago, I bought an amazingly made sony cd player, that I actually still have. These that they sell now are worthless. I have bought 4, and of the 4, 3 do not work. Buy them at your own risk. Sony is not a high quality company any longer. They are like everyone else, cheap.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Practical
Has the great quality Sony is known for. Bought this as a gift for gf to replace a similar player that was 15 years old and finally quit. Hope to get 15 years out of this one!

This player works great. After trying the players that are still available in stores and getting frustrated with all the stop/start of poor skip protection this player is a welcome relief. I listen to recorded books and hope players will still be available for some time to come even if they are becoming obsolete for music. This is one of the best I've used. The battery compartment is a little difficult because of its placement inside but I wouldn't trade it off for lesser performance. I recommended it to a friend and now she has one too!
Great little cd player
from Portland, ME
Be sure to use the Sound Enhancement "1" setting for full-range sound. With no sound setting selected the music is thin and weak, probably to extend the battery life. I pair the player with Sony's MDR-SA1000 and the Sound "2" setting and the playback is amazing. For $30 you can't go wrong. Get one before Sony discontinues portable CD players!

Great player, no wall power supply
from Logan, UT
The cd player works very well, no wait time on the anti skip protection, and sounds like I expect from Sony. The cons are pretty major though. The battery location is about as bad as it could possibly be. You have to open the case, remove the disc, and then fuss with the batteries from underneath the lid. There's no pull out ribbon, and the outside battery can be very difficult to remove. A good solution to this would be to not use the batteries, but the device does not come with an ac or dc adapter, so out of the box you're forced to use this ridiculous battery location. It also appears that Sony does not make those adapters, or at the best they're not listed as accessories and are difficult to find (haven't been able to so far). The LCD display is on the side of the player, which in itself isn't an issue, but it's very small, and extremely difficult to read it if there are low-light situations. Wish this would have had a bit more thought into it's functionality and been properly designed for actual use.
Error in Specs
from Newport Beach, CA
The specs indicate that it will play an MP3 disc but it won't.

It has resume
from San Francisco
I was glad to find this product had resume since I bought it for books on tape. You hit stop and the power goes off. You hit play and it's right back were you left off.
SONY WALKMAN CD PLAYER D-EJ011 REVIEW
Off the charts studio sound quality, digital Mega Bass sound system, sturdy build quality, attractive appearance, shuffle, repeat, and bookmark program play modes. Just another excellent product from Sony. The Sony D-EJ011 Walkman CD Player is without question the absolute best single function portable CD player that Sony offers. The Sony D-EJ011 Walkman CD Player offers an extensive feature set. Those features include a 1-bit D/A converter for awesome sound, 3.5mm headphone output jack, skip-free electronic shock protection, digital volume control, LCD display, battery level indicator, automatic shut-off, hold switch, CD-R/RW playback, play, pause, stop, forward skip, and reverse skip CD transport controls. The Sony Walkman CD Player also utilizes a user selectable Automatic Volume Limiter System (AVLS) volume distortion reduction system. All of my CDs sound wonderful on this portable with clear vocals, and well defined bass performance. I have not been able to make this Sony CD player skip during playback under any circumstances, with the shock protection enabled or disabled. This Sony D-EJ011 Walkman CD player is a great companion for the morning jog, long walks, trips to the beach, late night at home private listening sessions, or when youre sitting poolside taking a sip from that refreshing cool glass of iced tea. Please remember that in order to achieve audiophile quality sound reproduction from this unit, you should disable the electronic shock protection system during non-active use. The supplied ear-clip headphones offer very decent sound quality. However, the audio playback of this unit can be improved upon in my experience with an upgrade to the Sony Extra Bass MDR-XB500 headphones. The Extra Bass headphones produce copious amounts of detailed dynamic bass when combined with the playback accuracy of the Sony D-EJ011 Walkman CD Player. The Sony Walkman CD Player is powered by 2 AA batteries or it can be powered with an optional AC-E45A AC power adapter. Customers should be aware that the Sony D-EJ011 Walkman CD player does not offer an FM/AM tuner, MP3 CD playback, or remote controller. Good Luck. Enjoy.
All in all a good price
from Austin, Texas
Electric and ear plug connections to far apart, should be closer for component playing. Miss the old style for ease of handling.
Too Small for old eyes
Very hard to read the marking for different settings on the led face. Hard to tell what settings are unless looking under high light. Other than that it's a great unit, especially for the price.
