After years of speculation, Neil Young's Pono device has finally appeared on Kickstarter, but what makes it different from a smartphone? CNET takes a closer look at this device and tells you what you need to know.
With its aluminium body, high-quality digital audio amplifier, and ability to play lossless audio files, the Sony NWZ-Z10 is an MP3 player for the dedicated audiophile that demands top-quality sound.
For the price of $70, we're not sure there's an easier-to-use or more practical device out there that will give you local and mobile access to your media like the Orb MP-1.
Neil Young's Pono service has been in development for several years, but hi-res music fans are finally be able to purchase a first-edition PonoPlayer on Kickstarter for $200.
The high-resolution music player and online store called Pono, backed by musician Neil Young, will be available to pre-order from Kickstarter in mid-March.
MP3 players are no longer the hot property they were 10 years ago, but Sony has come up with a novel way to get people buying.
The Samsung Galaxy Muse is quite possibly the most awkwardly designed MP3 player ever made.
The new 'wire-free' Walkman sports a lighter, improved design and better waterproofing. It's set to ship in March for $99.99.
You've never seen the Walkman like this. CNET tracked down the original 1979 machine, its much smaller follow-up, and a classic '70s Pressman, and dropped the whole lot in a beautiful '80s setting.
The Sony Walkman NWZ-ZX1 plays lossless audio files and has a high-quality amplifier built in, aiming it squarely at the audiophile with deep pockets.
