Once we’re in the intelligence age, the hardware and equipment around us begin sit touts into explosive barbarism, and even those audio devices known for updating the speed of the turtle in ancient times have entered the extreme rhythm of a little change, a year-to-year change, but in these decades no matter what iteration and evolution, Sony’s name still plays a big part in the hearts of those who love music.
Forty years ago, Sony launched its first-generation Walkman product, which in the years that followed, revolutionized the way people enjoy music, while also becoming a popular feature for young people and becoming the inspiration for a group of music lovers. Today, although the living space of portable audio equipment has been squeezed by some smartphone products, but in the high-end audio field, there are still products like Sony NW series sitting in town, so that music lovers can enjoy better sound performance.
To mark the 40th anniversary of Walkman, Sony has launched a series of commemorative events this year, and on hardware products, Sony has also launched a high-resolution-based NW-ZX500 series of music players, let’s look back on the 40th anniversary of Walkman. You can continue to experience more free and higher-spec musical enjoyment.
The NW-ZX500 series is divided into NW-ZX505 and NW-ZX507 (two with only storage space differences, 16GB and 64GB, respectively), while the one on hand is the higher specifications of the NW-ZX507, in fact, simply in terms of appearance, The NW-ZX507’s design is clearly inspired by the NW-ZX300 series of players, and the easier-to-hold curved side side fits the slender figure, and the NW-Z-ZX507 is easy to get enough favor in the first eye.
To further enhance the body’s texture, the NW-ZX507 uses an all-cut aluminum base, which Sony believes not only provides enough face value, but also achieves a lower resistance value through the combination of aluminum rear panels and copper-plated module substrates, resulting in a more powerful bass treatment. Of course, Sony does the same in higher-order black bricks.
With a narrower bezel design, the Sony NW-ZX507 holds a 3.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 at a volume that is very similar to the NW-ZX300 series (57.3 x 121.8 x 14.8mm). And the reason for choosing the big screen as the design center, more important is because the NW-ZX507 uses a new system based on Android 9.0, under the big screen, we in daily use of the NW-ZX507’s handling feel will naturally get more assurance.
Of course, the NW-ZX507 isn’t the first Sony portable music player device to use Android, and in addition to securing more space, it’s also perfect for current users’ enthusiasm for streaming music. Once connected to the network, we have direct access to Sony’s high-spec music library (to be purchased), and of course we can install more music playback software in the App Store. As for the traditional burn of streaming platforms, the NW-ZX507 also comes with 64GB of memory and microSD card expansion support, and in short, the library archive can easily appreciate its collection of high-quality sound sources for many years.
But as Walkman’s 40th anniversary product, Sony also added a “pay-per-view” dessert feature to the NW-ZX507, which can be used with the NW-ZX507’s own music player, and the NW-ZX507 can replace the playback interface with a different tape style based on the music format. For the old Walkman users who started with tape, it was really full of feelings! (Exposed age without accident)
From high-end to fever
In order to improve the sound quality performance, Sony in the DESIGN of the NW-Z-ZX507 has made many efforts, in addition to the low resistance body we mentioned earlier, Sony also used analog module power system enhancements, noise isolation circuit design, as well as new high-quality lead-free solder, this technology has been in the top brick “So 60,000” 😀 MP-Z1 has been proven enough, so at least in terms of hardware configuration, the Sony NW-ZX507 is an unreserved music player device.
For the small editor in love with pop music, the Sony family music player and headphone products have always had a considerable property fit, and the NW-ZX507 is a further emphasis on low-frequency performance, in addition to having a good sense of strength, the performance of the dive can also catch our nerves in a flash.
And in playing Jazz such music, we found that the NW-ZX507 for the baroness performance is also quite excellent, although the sound orientation is relatively cold, but the performance of the female voice is still full enough, while the ducto instrument’s extendability has been a certain degree of support, the romantic atmosphere without too much paving can be directly pounced on. As for the large-scale compilation of live music, Sony NW-ZX507 also showed a strong analytical power, the details of the slow level of the sense of the scene brought a full sense of auditory impact.
So even in a harsh way, the Sony NW-ZX507 is a good enough product to rise from the high end to the fever, and to our relief, Even with 3.5mm headphone slots, the NW-ZX507’s sound performance continues to perform at an excellent level, and if it’s not deliberately provocative, it’s hard to find the difference between the resolution and the dynamics, so even for the beginner enthusiast, the Sony NW-ZX507 is a very worthy product to choose from.
Of course, more “pure” cable mode, Sony NW-ZX507 can also be connected to wireless headphones via Bluetooth, with LDAC plus-control, NW-ZX507 in the wireless connection state can also output very ideal sound, so that this music playback device has more free-going properties.
Walkman’s 40th Anniversary
Sony gave the NW-ZX507 a price of 5199 yuan (16GB version of the price of 4199 yuan), and in terms of actual performance, this price is also completely on the NW-ZX507 product positioning: stronger than the ZX300 series, but slightly weaker than the black brick, so although it is by walking walkwalkman 40th anniversary of the launch of the commemorative works, but the NW-ZX507 still showed enough product power at its own price.
So we’d say that the Sony NW-ZX507 is a step-by-step product that’s moving from high-end to fever, and in fact, even for users who are already starting to be picky, the Sony NW-ZX507 guarantees enough high-quality performance to satisfy their ears. And if the heart still has the feelings for the Walkman series, the face of the NW-ZX507 is even more difficult to refuse temptation?
