Before everyone carried smartphones, people carried the Sony Walkman, a portable hi-fi device to listen to audio on the go. The company has now unveiled its pocket-sized hi-fi Walkman as a tribute to the very first models created in the 1980s.
Design and Screen
The Walkman NW-WM1ZM2 and NW-WM1AM2 have a compact but perfect design with ultra high quality sound. Both devices have a large 5-inch touch screen.
Sony claims that the devices have a durable aluminum alloy frame, which helps to provide additional strong base notes without interference. The models are also equipped with various accessories that meet premium standards.
Interior and Storage
Sony’s signature Walkman ZM2 series has 256 GB of memory. AM2 has 128 GB. The memory size can be expanded via the SD card slot.
Both Walkman are equipped with Wi-Fi to download and broadcast audio.
Battery and Evaluation
Sony claims that the built-in rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery can run for up to 40 hours of continuous reading. The battery can be charged with a USB Type-C cable.
Sony NW-WM1ZM2 will be available for $ 4484, and NW-WM1AM2 for $ 1740. Although expensive, the two models will serve as collector’s items, given Walkman’s long history and broad historical destiny.
