Sony’s NW-A306 Walkman Plays Audio Your Phone Can’t Compete With at a Reasonable Price
 

The Sony Walkman is back with a vengeance—and a whole new modern vibe. The NW-A306 Walkman leaves those cassette tapes buried in the past, and instead offers 32 GB of on-board storage (expandable via the SD card slot), a 36-hour battery life, Bluetooth audio streaming, and immersive 360 Reality Audio technology that makes listening to your music, podcasts, and audiobooks a breathtaking experience.

Other high-tech features include: compatibility with wireless and 3.5mm plug-in headphones, 24-bit/96-kHz PCM audio, Sony’s S-Master HX digital amplifier to reduce noise and distortion, and an onboard vinyl processor that plays music with the warmth and richness of sound that makes record players still so beloved decades after they stopped being cutting-edge technology. All of this for a reasonable price considering it’s a high-res audio device.
