The Sony NWZ-A820 series is part of Sony's new Walkman flash-based mp3 player series and features a 16GB version (NWZ-A829) and a 8GB version (NWZ-A828). The players are aimed at the video playback market and aim to compete directly with Apple. The main value-add to these players is their above-average sound quality with out-of-the-box headphones. The earbuds are made from adjustable silicone and can sit comfortably in your ear with sizes ranging from small to large.

Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

Although the NWZ-A829 features Bluetooth connectivity for wireless headphones, the headphones themselves are not included. The headphones will cost extra, although the synching up with the player itself is seamless once you have a set. However, it's important to note that the audio quality will suffer when going wireless.
