Sony NWZ 639FB vs 739FB


Standard Member
Hello all,

Amazon has both of these players - the 739FB appears to have noise-cancelling but apart from that, that's it. It's about £10 cheaper too. I intend on using my own headphones anyway, but just want to make sure there the sound quality of the player itself is not worse than the 639FB.

Any ideas? :)

I have the 739FB. The only performance difference is the noise-cancelling capability (note that this will only work with the supplied headphones). Also, the 739FB only comes in one finish, brushed metal. Looks nice, mind. My Sony is partnered with a pair of Sennheiser HD 485's. Sounds excellent.
