Sony officially introduced its new Walkman X series, these portable media players feature a 3-inch OLED touchscreen and WiFi connectivity.
The new WALKMAN® X series delivers the ultimate personal entertainment experience. Packed with latest Sony audio and video technology, it’s the perfect choice for anyone who’s serious about enjoying their digital media collection on the move. The slim, compact and beautifully styled X series fits easily into your pocket.
The X series is also the first WALKMAN® to feature a 3-inch widescreen OLED touchscreen meaning videos and digital photos stand out with incredible colours and contrast, while response time is super-quick for breathtaking results with fast-moving action like sports.
The ‘hybrid’ combination of large touchscreen plus dedicated music player buttons makes operation simple and intuitive. If you’re watching videos, it’s easy to find the right moment in longer videos with the touchscreen’s new ‘Scene Scroll’ function.
The 3-inch OLED touchscreen is also perfect for flicking through your photo collection in sharp detail, complete with music soundtrack if you wish.
Audio quality is everything you’d expect from the flagship in the WALKMAN® range. The new X series is packed with digital Clear Audio Technologies by Sony for rich, wide bandwidth audio with clear, commanding bass and enhanced stereo separation.
In another WALKMAN® first, S-master Digital Amplifier technology assures rich, lifelike ultra-low distortion sound. Already featured on Sony hi-fi and home theatre products, S-master amplification puts you centre-stage in the studio or concert hall, while maintaining a crisp and clear sound.
A handy switch activates Digital Noise Cancelling, immersing you in a world of beautiful WALKMAN® sound without intrusions. There’s a choice of three settings to cut background noise whether you’re onboard a plane, bus/train or in the office. Also, air travellers can connect the WALKMAN® directly to the plane’s AV system with the supplied connector, in flight, to benefit from the WALKMAN®’s noise cancelling capabilities.
Loading up your WALKMAN® with music and video content is seamless, easy and fun. On-board Wi-Fi connectivity lets you stream YouTube™, Podcast direct downloading and internet browsing.
While you’re enjoying a track, you can expand your knowledge of a genre. X Series can offer a choice of related links, pointing you directly to artist-related resources like YouTube™.
