Meet the new Sony Walkman

Walkman Zx2

For those born in the 2000s this Sony brand will obviously make no sense to you. At CES this year, Sony has shown off the new Walkman ZX2, which has been designed from scratch with die hard audiophiles in mind .

The ZX2 is the second attempt for Sony to resurrect it’s aging Walkman brand. It made of a matte black casing with playback buttons carved into its curved side. It’s looks heavier than you’d initially expect, with a distinctive gold-toned headphone jack. It has support for microSD card but the Walkman it’s self has 128GB of built-in storage.

The Walkman ZX2 runs a 2012 old version of Android — 4.2 Jelly Bean, but keep in mind it’s not a smartphone so that don’t matter. You can also download and play apps from Google Play. Its designed to have the best audio experience with support for different audio formats like DSD, WAV, AIFF, FLAC, Apple Lossless, and more. It supports Bluetooth for wireless streaming and NFC for one-touch connection to speakers and headphones. Now the down side to this device is that the ZX2 will launch later this year for over $1,119.99.
