Sony's two new high-resolution Walkman models, the new compact H.ear NW-A25HN and high-end NW-ZX100HN, are announced at IFA.
There's no one-size-fits-all MP3 or Portable Media Player (PMP) that's perfect for everybody. Whether you want something that plays MP3s, hi-res FLAC files, or even stream music from the web there's something to suit most budgets.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sony revives its Walkman line with the F800 and E470, but for the price you might as well buy a music-capable Android phone.
The Walkman Z is Sony's iPod Touch for Android-loving audiophiles.
The new 'wire-free' Walkman sports a lighter, improved design and better waterproofing. It's set to ship in March for $99.99.
Sony has launched a new range of hi-res portable audio gear at IFA in Berlin including headphones and players. We went hands-on.
