High-Resolution Audio perfected by Sony
The richness and musical fidelity of High-Resolution Audio has gone mobile. Through technologies developed by Sony, you’ll hear what you’ve been missing.
with S-Master HX™ and DSEE-HX™ technologies
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.
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.
Experience high quality playback of PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) converted content (DSD 64/DSD128) with the same warm sound of the DSD (Direct Stream Digital) original.
The slow roll-off filter helps deliver sound that’s true to the warm sound of DSD.
The sharp roll-off filter lets you enjoy music with sharp impact and clarity.
Adjust the volume level of DSD to match that of PCM sources.
LDAC is a new audio technology from Sony that allows you to enjoy high quality wireless audio via Bluetooth. With 3x the data transmitted, LDAC provides an enhanced wireless listening experience for all your music.
The high stiffness and low contact resistance of the gold-plated copper chassis help produce clear and powerful sound in the low frequency range.
It’s the musical equivalent of having a veil removed from your ears. Two dedicated clock oscillations enable completely synchronised demodulation for pure, uncompromising sound.
Two clock oscillators inside
A reinforced power line provides conductivity that’s more energy efficient and less susceptible to noise, for sound that feels more extensive and powerful.
A double layer capacitor ensures signal accuracy
Seven OS-CON capacitors provide stable frequency characteristics and low noise.
A large-capacity Li-ion battery offers transparent highs and powerful lows.
Supplement the NW-ZX2’s built-in storage with a microSDXC memory card. And, when it's time to enjoy all that stored music, you get extended play with a long-lasting battery.
Sony Walkman® project leader Tomoaki Sato shares how he created the ZX2 Walkman® to deliver the perfect sound quality.
