Sony Is Bringing Back the Walkman With Hi-Res Audio sound quality

Posted in Technology


Sony unveiled a new Walkman on Tuesday that will deliver an exceptional audio experience—at an exceptionally high price.

The new Sony ZX2 Walkman will set audiophiles back by $1,000. According to Sony, the payoff comes with a clarity of sound that approaches master recordings in studio.

Unlike CD’s and MP3 files, which compress sound files into more manageable sizes, the new walkman will retain songs in “high resolution” (a typical song file weighs in at a hefty 150MB). That wider bandwidth allows for more sensitive recordings, “for a more authentic, emotionally involving musical experience,” Sony says.

The Sony device will come with a lot of storage for all those high-res songs. An aluminum frame and rubber grip on the back make it easy to hold, filling the hand effortlessly. The high stiffness and low contact resistance of the gold-plated copper chassis help produce clear and powerful sound in the low frequency range.

The Walkman ZX2 comes with 128 GB of storage, roughly enough space for 1,700 songs at this size. LDAC is a new audio technology from Sony that allows you to enjoy high quality wireless audio via Bluetooth. With 3x the data transmitted, LDAC provides an enhanced wireless listening experience for all your music.
