Two Sony Walkman priced in PH!

To recap, the NW-A306 Walkman is an affordable premium music player featuring a 3.6-inch 1280 x 720 HD resolution, S-Master HD digital amp which produces Hi-Res audio at 24-bit/96KHz and higher. 

It also has 32GB/64GB storage options and up to 26-36 hours of battery (will vary based on sound quality).

On the other hand, the NW-ZX707 is a much bigger and thicker device with a 5.0-inch 720p display. In terms of functionality, it is mostly similar to the one above.

But what changed here is the upgraded fine-tuned capacitors and FTCAP3 (High polymer capacitor) and another huge solid high polymer capacitor that offers large capacitance and low resistance. With these, Sony says that it can deliver smoother sound and wider sound stage as well as provide powerful bass and clear vocals for listeners.

Sony also included an OFC milled block to cover the digital block. Sony described this function to bring listeners a "sound that appears to rise up from silence".

Another highlight is the large 8mm coil for balanced output creating enhanced resolution across all frequencies.

Since this has much more powerful hardware, its battery life is also lower at up to 22-25 hours. Again it varies depending on how high the resolution of the sound you are playing.

Both devices are also capable of producing Hi-Res sound for both wired and Wirelessly through the LDAC Bluetooth codec and DSD playback that can run formats of up to 11.2MHz conversion.

While the two Walkmans also use Edge-AI and DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) which is responsible for upscaling compressed digital music files in real-time.

Lastly, they also support WiFi connectivity and Android 12 OS so you can download music streaming apps like Apple Music, YouTube Music, or Spotify.

Price and availability

Sony NW-A306 - PHP 19,999
Sony ZX-707 - PHP 44,999

While these devices get the official price, you'll still have to wait until February 10, 2023, before they become available in select Sony Authorized Dealers across the country.
