The 2 GB of storage is plenty to hold thousands of songs for those long runs or bike rides. There's not a whole of of buttons so it is very easy to use. There is a compartment that protects a microUSB connector and the controls are easily accessible. The hardwire gives the headphone more security so you won't need to constantly adjust your device. At $79.99, the Sony Walkman W 262 is a great bargain for those who seek convenience and quality.
