Certain gadget brands have made quite a name for themselves in the marketplace that the brand name itself becomes synonymous to the type of gadget it is. Take the case of the Sony Walkman. In the 1980’s, the Walkman became the portable cassette tape players people use then for music listening while on the go. It became so popular that people call all portable cassette tape players as Walkman’s. The Walkman was a global phenomenon that has seen better days. But its parent company Sony is not just about to let go of the brand. It aims to resurrect the name and use it for its current lineup of Hi-Res Digital Music Players. The recent one that the company introduced at CES 2015 is the Sony Walkman NW-ZX2.
The Sony Walkman NW-ZX2 is the next edition of the popular Walkman series of new hi-res digital audio players. This audio player is compatible playing a wide range of popular music file formats including AIFF, ALAC, MP3, WMA, WAV, DSD, FLAC, and many more. The new Sony Walkman also features Bluetooth with LDAC for Hi Fidelity wireless music streaming. It is also comes with dual-band WiFi built-in to allow users to enjoy music stored on other similar gadgets.
The Sony Walkman NW-ZX2 also comes with a 128GB memory storage, more than enough for thousands and thousands of your favorite music files stored and playable in just a single device. It also comes with a rechargeable battery that is capable of up to 60 hours of playing time using MP3 files and up to 33 hours of Hi-Res playback on a single charge. With its features, the new Sony NW-ZX2 Walkman does not come cheap with a price point reaching around $1,000. It is slated to be available in selected markets starting this month.
