Sony Walkman NWZ A15


The NWZ-A15 thus offers access to the highest possible quality of music available. Sony calls this “High Resolution Audio”, and there is a move to make this something of a standard.

Product Description

Sony just slashed the ticket price of the exclusive high-resolution audio club with its cheapest HR Walkman to date. Small enough for your top pocket, with NFC connectivity and superior sound, can an MP3 player fend off the smartphones? Find out in our Sony Walkman NWZ-A15 review.

From vinyl, to CD to MP3, the market has always chosen convenience over quality, so by pushing high-resolution audio, it looks like Sony is onto looser here. And if the world of lossless music formats wasn’t confusing enough for the consumer, selling a separate playback device to the smartphone generation is going to be an even tougher pitch.

Nonetheless, as the smallest, lightest and cheapest device to date, the Sony Walkman NWZ-A15 could be the player that takes high-resolution audio to the masses. It’s certainly a very different price point from the £1,000 Astell & Kern AK120 II and thanks to a microSD slot it is better equipped than Sony’s own Walkman NWZ-F886.

And while Sony’s previous entry-level device failed to convince us put down our iPhone 5, the NWZ-A15 has the style, skills and price tag to justify carrying a separate gadget.
