Buy more batteries!

Advantages: Small, compact, volume control on earphone wire, cool design, 45 second anti-shock
Disadvantages: flimsy latch on lid, appalling battery life

...Battery manufacturers are probably rubbing their hands together in glee from the moment you buy the Philips AX3301. It starts off well enough - the unit is very well designed, the display although small is clear enough, the controls nice and easy to us ...

Sony Walkman (though you could jog, man)

Advantages: Looks nice, excellent sound quality, plays CD-R's/CD-RW, nice price,shock-proof
Disadvantages: None really

(sorry about the title!) I brought this CD-player a few years back, before embarking on a long drive up to Scotland with my family for a holiday, to save me from having to put up with my parents' choice of music. For only about £40 at the time, I'm reall ...

Sony CD Walkman D-E330 - Takes hell of a punch

Advantages: Choice of 3 colours, 33 hour battery time with recharge capability, Includes 1 year warranty, Brilliant two stage bass system, Extremely hardy and has an incredibly sufficient Anti-Shock Mechanism
Disadvantages: Scratches Easilly, Hold button can irritatingly lock on when you are amidst usage, Earphones lose their ability to play bass - can however be solved simply by replacing them with a different pair.

* Inspiration for Review* Brilliant CD Walkman. I had bought the walkman several months back, but recently dropped it off the second floor of my house. I was peering outside my bedroom window with my cd walkman, when I slipped, and the poor walkman ...

Popular, doesn't even attempt to describe this

Advantages: Sony Name and Looks Good
Disadvantages: Just a Basic Model
