We take a closer look at a new budget-friendly Sony Walkman announced today in Japan.
The Sony MDR-NC500D Digital Noise Canceling Headphones may lighten the wallet, but they are a great option for frequent fliers and tetchy commuters who need superior noise cancellation.
While it isn't quite as good as the Beats Studio wireless, Sony's MDR-ZX770BN costs significantly less.
The Sony Walkman NW-ZX2 is a luxury portable high-res audio player with Android streaming apps, a premium build and excellent sound, but its high price may be too much for all but the most dedicated music lovers.
The Walkman NWZ-WS613 is Sony's latest Bluetooth headphone that doubles as an MP3 player. This one includes a wireless remote you wear on your finger.
Standalone MP3 players are still in demand, and the NWZ-A17 Walkman is a portable player that features up to 30 hours of battery life while playing full 24-bit/192kHz high-resolution music.
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 Sony XBA-NC85D is marginally effective at canceling noise and its disappointing sound quality does nothing to offset the exorbitant price.
If you can't afford Bose's QuietComfort noise-canceling headphones, the attractively designed and more affordable Sony MDR-NC200Ds are worth your consideration.
Sony's new sound cancelling MDR-NC100D in-ear and MDR NC200D on-ear headphones want to bring the noise along with two speakers for smart phones, the SRS-BTV25 and the RDP-V20iP.
