According to the company, its E Series Walkman supports up to 50 hours of audio playback (mp3 files at 128 kbps) and 10 hours of supported video playback (WMV at 384 kbps).  

The unit utilizes Sony's own "Clear Audio" technologies for clear, deep sound without distortion, comes with Content Transfer Software for easy file transfer, and has a SenseMe technology which automatically categorizes music tracks.

It also has a brand new user interface, a "Bookmark Function" so listeners can create playlists on the go, and supports MP3, WMA (DRM), AAC (non-DRM), linear PCM, and WMV (DRM) formats.
 
The Sony E Series Walkman will be available in the US next month for about US$70 for a 4GB memory version, model NWZ-E353, and US$80 for an 8 GB version, model NWZ-E354.
