  • Bass boost button with flashing red LEDs
  • Long battery life of up to 18 hours1
  • Super-quick charge in just 3 minutes for 90 minutes playback time
  • One-button ZAPPIN™ technology enables quick, easy music searches
  • Simple drag-and-drop music transfers
  • Handy voice record function

The compact, vibrant WALKMAN® NWZ-B150 series offers great sound with pumping bass you can really feel, making it a great ‘first MP3’ player for younger music lovers.

Despite its ultra-compact size, the WALKMAN® B150 Series makes a big statement with its full, rich sound. A handy button provides an instant bass boost, confirmed by flashing red Power Illuminator LEDs.

The built-in USB connection links WALKMAN® directly to your computer with no need for cables or extra software; you simply drag and drop to load up your favourite tracks. The direct USB connection also allows easy music transfer and direct recording or playback with compatible Mini/Micro audio systems2.

Operation is clear and simple with a 3-line LCD display showing track and artist information. At a touch, ZAPPIN™ technology scans through stored tracks, playing a short, recognisable sample from each song’s chorus to help you pinpoint the song you want to listen to. With one further touch, this technology rewinds the chosen track and plays it from the beginning.

If you’re in a hurry, a 3-minute charge gives enough power for 90 minutes of listening, while a fully charged battery offers up to 18 hours1 non-stop play time.

As an added extra, the WALKMAN® NWZ-B150 series enables you to store memos & lecture notes with the on-board voice recorder.

Optional accessories for the WALKMAN® NWZ-B150 series include the CKA-NWU10 sports armband – an ideal addition for keeping Walkman® secure whether you’re exercising or just relaxing.

The WALKMAN® NWZ-B150 series is part of the full line-up of MP3 and MP4 players by Sony. The WALKMAN® range includes the high-performance X Series with touchscreen and Digital Noise Cancelling technology; the ultra-slim A Series with 2.8” OLED screen; the S Series with built-in speakers; the compact, great-sounding E Series; and the wearable W Series designed for active wear.

The new WALKMAN® NWZ-B150 series of MP3 players from Sony comes in a stylish range of colour variations - black, blue, pink and red - and is available from early June 2010.
