MP3 players: Compare features & prices Sony NWZ-B152 review Back to Results

The Sony NWZ-B152 is a small, light and ultraportable MP3 player. It's very basic, lacking many of the advanced features found in other music players, but it is very cheap. We were keen to see whether the B152 was a good budget option, or whether Sony had sacrificed performance for a small price tag.
