Feel the bass. Compact, colourful WALKMAN® B150 Series for young music lovers

12 April 2010

• Bass boost button with flashing red illuminator LEDs
• Long battery life up to 18 hours1
• Quick charge in just 3 minutes for 90 minutes playback time
• One-button ZAPPIN™ for quick, easy music searches
• Easy drag-and-drop music transfers

A great ‘first MP3’ player for younger music lovers, the compact, colourful WALKMAN® NWZ-B150 series offers great sound with pumping bass you can really feel.

Despite its ultra-compact size, the WALKMAN® B150 Series makes its presence felt with 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 cables or extra software needed: just 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 showing track and artist information. At a touch, ZAPPIN™ technology scans through stored tracks, playing a short sample from each song to help you pinpoint the right track.

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

The WALKMAN® B150F series adds an FM tuner for enjoying your favourite radio shows wherever you are. You can also store voice notes or radio broadcasts with the on-board recorder.

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

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 wide 7.1cm (2.8”) OLED screen; the S series with built-in speakers; the compact, great-sounding E series; and the wearable W series for sports.

Coming soon and designed specially for great performance with all compatible WALKMAN® models4, the JBL On Stage III dock is a great way to release your music. Offering a generous 10W+10W output power, this stylish dock that features a striking curved design can be powered by batteries for go-anywhere entertainment. Supplied with a handy remote control, it also charges WALKMAN® while you’re listening (when powered from the mains). Available from late Spring 2010.

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