The secret of popularity lies in the analog sound converted to CD and MP3 formats. During the conversion process, most of the sound shades are preserved, which allows you to enjoy high-quality music: the emotions and nuances of the compositions that talented composers worked on are transmitted. And the Walkman ZX2 is no exception. Sony S-Master HX Digital Amplifier guarantees high-definition audio. This is the first thing that buyers pay attention to in the process of acquiring a device for personal use.

Companies like Pono, Astrell and Kern have proven that portable devices have a future. And despite the fact that MP3 loses to its competitors both in sound quality and in compression efficiency, it continues to be the most popular format.

Sony has repeatedly made attempts to resurrect the Walkman brand, and the likelihood that it will be possible to do in a couple of years, and the company will be able to reach a new level, introducing a new development that will radically differ from its predecessors, is quite high. And the build quality of the Walkman ZX2, as well as the presence of a dual-band Wi-Fi module, with which you can download applications for Android, is the optimal platform for experiments.

Sound quality

We tested the flagship by launching such popular applications as MediaMonkey and PlayerPro. The results showed that the device is working fine. Sound quality distinguishes the device from other innovations presented by leading manufacturers. Of course, this is far from ideal, but you have to start somewhere. After 2-3 years, the combination of price / quality will not cause doubts among potential buyers. The main thing is that production should not be put on the conveyor.


If you travel often and listen to music during business trips, you can safely choose Walkman ZX2. Taking into account the appetites of customers and the characteristics of the device, we can conclude that in the near future the company will be able to rise to a new level. This scenario is quite possible – given the fact how much time the company pays attention to the new product in the production process, improving it in stages.
