16GB Walkman MP3 Player
DOESN'T INCLUDE VARIABLE PLAYBACK SPEED
None of Sony's Walkman MP3 players include variable playback speed or DPC.
Why on earth not?

Frustrating to use
This product peaked years ago, and then it seemed that Sony tried to find ways to manufacture it more cheaply. They eliminated dedicated volume buttons and the 'Hold' button. The lack of a hold button is really irritating because you are now required to press down the Option button for several seconds every single time you want to turn the player on or off, or even if you've just paused it. It gets old very quickly.

Good BUT in comparison to the last model, horrible
I have had the NWZ-S764 and then went to the NWZ-E475 (got dammaged in a shipwreck :( ) Then I got this one, the NWZ-E385. The biggest disappointments are only 3 things but 2 of them make my life stressed. The first which I can live with is the volume up and down went from having dedicated buttons on the side to being integrated with the D-pad, okay so I can live with it. But the hold went from a dedicated switch on the side to holding down the option button. Every time I want to get in my car and go, I try to play my music but after some time the stupid thing automatically goes on hold and you have to hold the stupid options button. Every time I want to use my player this happens, in prior models it would only go into standby and you could just push the play button and be on your way, but now I just wish I had my old one still working :'( the last thing that is bad is they took off the bookmark, I have so many songs that I have never heard all of them but when I hear a good one I liked the option before that you can add it to your bookmark. Also you could create different play lists so you could listen to music that you like for the car or the boat or when your happy or sad. but now you have to take all the songs and put them in a folder on your computer and have multiple copies of each song which take up room.

great walkman but with missing features
this is a great walkman with its sound quality but it doesn't include VPT surround or dpc speed control as previous walkman. these features are main reason I would buy a sony walkman. walkmans with vpt and dpc are available in other sony stores worldwide but not in the USA for some unknown reason.
