Audiophile from the ’80s rejoice! Sony is bringing back the Walkman in style year with the introduction of the Walkman ZX2, a luxury mp3 player that will reportedly retail for $1,199.99 this Spring. The announcement was made at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
Why do you need it? The big selling point is the S-Master HX processor, which enables high-resolution audio, similar to Neil Young’s Pono player. This feature promises a top-of-the-line audio experience that will blow away any phone you have in your pocket.
In addition, the ZX2 also features 128GB of storage, a touch screen, Bluetooth, and support for Android apps.
