Sony M-Series Preview (NWZ-M504)
Good news everyone, my M-Series has arrived. Due to the fact I was not home earlier in the day, my delivery only arrived about an hour or so ago, therefore apologies for the poor photos; I will upload better photos tomorrow.
A quick overview so far. The device is heavier than I expected but it does have a bigger battery and S-Master MX amp. The included headphones are the MDR-NC31E, which are identical to the headphones which shipped with my MDR-NWBT20N, except the cable is longer. Built quality is solid, it is plastic, but the heavier weight makes it feel as if the body is metal. Controls are simple, play/pause/call key near screen. On one side, hold switch, vol +/-, home/back and reset button, nothing on the other side. On the underside is the NFC antenna and on the opposite side of the 3.5mm jack is the micro-USB port, covered by a flap.
The menu is very simple to use and easy to navigate. The M-Series does come with a clip which you can attach on the underside, but only in one direction which is a shame. The device is able to receive a bluetooth signal but is unable to send one out, to for example larger headphones or a wireless speaker.
That is all for now, I will update this post tomorrow after I use the M-Series for the day but if anyone has any questions, please post them up as comments or email me, and I will do my best to reply and answer them.
