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 new 'wire-free' Walkman sports a lighter, improved design and better waterproofing. It's set to ship in March for $99.99.
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.
Thanks to excellent sound quality, integrated noise-canceling functionality, and several smart music sorting options, the Sony S-Series Walkman is a superb choice for music aficionados.
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 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.
Sony's 20GB HD1 looks, sounds, and feels amazing, but you'll have to sacrifice an extra wad of cash, not to mention native MP3 and WMA file support.
The sum of the NWZ-S710F's audio enhancement and noise-canceling features adds up to one of the most pleasant and private music experiences you can have for less than $200.
The X-Series is a superb choice for audiophiles who want a luxury device with an excellent touch-screen interface and plenty of other bells and whistles.
It's not an exciting player, but it's well-priced, easy to use, pleasantly designed and it sounds great once you've upgraded the bundled earphones
Sony's NWZ-B152 is a disappointing re-release of its B142F Walkman MP3 player. The good battery life and fast charging don't do much to make up for the outdated design, awkward menus, average audio quality and horrible jog-dial.
This is certainly Sony's most impressive player yet. With a little more attention to detail and some more work on the much improved bundled software, Sony may yet have a chance in this market
The Sony Walkman NWZ-A828 is a truly superb player in terms of usability, sound quality and design. It's not without its fair share of flaws -- notably the tricky video support -- but for most people it's an absolute must to consider, if not run out and buy
The Sony NWZ-W260 is a water-resistant MP3 player in the form of a headset. It looks like a good choice for those who want some no-fuss music while they pump their guns.
Good things sometimes come in daft packages. The Sony Walkman NWZ-W202's comfortable fit, ear-pleasing audio and rock-solid build quality more than compensate for its laughable Zappin song-navigation system and Bluetooth headset-esque styling. It's a great alternative to the iPod shuffle for anyone who values sound quality over minuscule dimensions
The Sony Walkman NWZ-A865 MP3 player boasts a large, responsive touchscreen and some cool features. If it's anything like other Walkman models, it should be easy to use, but it lacks the apps and extra goodies than you'll find on an iPod touch.
The most beautiful MP3 player we've seen since the nano, with incredible video playback and superb battery life. Sadly, though, the SonicStage software still drags down usability
