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.
The new 'wire-free' Walkman sports a lighter, improved design and better waterproofing. It's set to ship in March for $99.99.
The HiFiMan HM-901 is a game changer: it's easily the best-sounding portable music player on the planet.
The Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray player offers a wealth of services and very good image quality for the money.
As long as you have the videos to watch, VLC's gesture controls and smooth performance make it an excellent app for video playback.
Pricing not available
While it looks like it came from the future, the Zeiss Cinemizer OLED headset offers performance from the Dark Ages.
The Samsung Galaxy Muse is quite possibly the most awkwardly designed MP3 player ever made.
The Pono player is due in October, but the X5 is cheaper, plays more types of file formats, and sounds sweet says the Audiophiliac.
The Audiophiliac spends some quality time with FiiO's little X3, an awesome 192kHz/24-bit music player/headphone amplifier; it also sounds sweet with MP3s.
