Rechargeable battery built-in

The built-in lithium ion battery provides up to 35 hours of audio playback or up to 4 hours of video playback per charge.1

Solid Sound

Exclusive Sony® Clear Audio Technologies like Clear Stereo and Clear Bass restore the clarity and depth of digitally compressed music. With the integrated 5 band equalizer, you can dial in the sound according to genre or create two custom EQ curves.

Small in size, BIG in file capacity

The restyled NWZ-E390 series Walkman® has an ergonomic shape with a textured graphics wrap. Streamlined for portability, the NWZ-E390 series can store hours of music and personal photos thanks to the internal (4/8/16) GB memory2.

Lightning-fast LCD display

The 1.77" (128x160) color LCD provides convenient viewing of photos and album artwork. Select viewing images in portrait or landscape mode.

Dynamic Normalizer

Dynamic Normalizer balances the volume level between songs. With this setting, when listening to album songs in the shuffle play mode, the volume level between songs is moderated to minimize the difference in their recording levels.
