Gold Plated Walkman NW-WM1Z is a premium Sony music player made for excellent high-resolution sound quality. The body frame is made of copper and it’s plated with gold which protects the player from any electromagnetic interference and ensures the high quality sound. Sony has cooperated with KIMBER KABLE and inside the player there are four wire braided cables which contribute to the sound performance.
The Walkman 2016 has a few changes compared to the previous flagman player: the audio port is now located on the top of the player, plus there are some minor interface changes. Aside from a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, there is a balanced 4.4mm jack designed for minimizing sound loss.
