This is the page for the Sony NWZ-E380 series (NWZ-E383, NWZ-E384, NWZ-E385).

It appears that the Sony NWZ-E380 is just a Sony NWZ-E370 with different name and firmware so please refer to SonyNWZE370 for hardware information.

Note: the only difference seen in the manufacturer specification is: NWZ-E370 "Compatible with WM-DRM 10", NWZ-E380 "WM-DRM not supported".
