Hear what you've been missing

with S-Master HX™ and DSEE-HX™ technologies

Enjoy jaw-dropping sound quality

Like going from standard definition to HD video, High-Resolution Audio tracks are far higher quality than MP3s and even CDs, letting you hear every breath, every drumbeat, every note. Even better, the S-Master HX™ all-digital amplifier reduces potential distortion, ensuring you always get the full listening experience recorded in the studio.

The NWZ-A Series Walkman plays 24-bit sound and transmits 3.2 times more data
DSEE HX technology restores lost detail to MP3 files

Your favorite songs, upgraded

In addition to playing studio-quality High-Resolution Audio, the NW-ZX2 Walkman® also improves the sound of all your existing music. DSEE HX™ restores lost detail to MP3s and other compressed music files, giving you back the full experience of the original recording, whether you listen to Dvorak or electronic music.
