The Next Leap in Portable Music Players

We were all impacted by the release of the original Apple iPod. It changed music and the world in many ways. While the original Sony Walkman democratized music listening on your morning runs, or during your commute to work, you still needed to carry around cassette tapes. These took up space in your pockets and were especially susceptible to dust and lint which distorted sounds and produced a high-frequency tape hiss.

With the iPod, you can carry your entire music collection in your pocket. No longer do you have to decide ahead of time what music you might want to listen to and remember to bring along those tapes. However, even though the iPod offered tremendous convenience, downloading music from sites like Apple and Spotify offered sub-CD quality regarding sound.

Music Lovers and Audiophiles Rejoice

It is the moment you have been waiting for, arguably the greatest name in portable music, Sony, meets the latest standard in premium audio, High-Resolution Audio with their NWZ-A Series Walkman.

What is High-Resolution Audio you ask? Where music downloaded from Apple is lower sound quality than a CD, high-resolution music goes in the other direction – better than CD quality. In layman terms, it lets you enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound and feels like your favorite artist is performing right in front of you.

If you want on-the-go convenience while hearing music as the artist intended, look no further than Sony’s A17 Walkman. It allows you to slip hi-res quality sound in your pocket and enjoy music with the richness and fidelity of the source that has previously been unavailable in portable formats.
