ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
It turns out (unsurprisingly) that there are a number of differences between the A40 and the A50 series Walkman that aren’t immediately apparent from looking at Sony’s disorganised specs pages for the two devices – Here’s a video that explains the changes:

  2. One interesting detail for this Walkman.

    Even though it won’t display volume when connected to a Bluetooth headphones, you can actually still control the volume and it will display a volume + or volume – when you’re pressing the button.

    However, for some Bluetooth headphones, you can never switch the volume to the normal range.

  3. Why is that everyone who has reviewed this hasn't mentioned the DAC feature? I'm looking for a mobile player and a pc DAC and would like to know if it does a good job.

  4. The problem with watching a Techmoan review is that it makes it impossible to see any others and not feel like watching rubbish. This guy is thorough!! Thanks!

  5. Maybe I'm too young, but I simply can't get the point of buying separate mobile music player nowadays. Can someone explain this phenomenon to me?

  6. I believe the 40th anniversary release Walkman probably uses a different type amplifier, and being that it is android based it probably colorized the sound.

  7. I have the NW-A55 which I bought imported from Japan to the US. When playing a track you hit the tool chest on the bottom left and scroll down to "Move Songs to Language Study"
    You get a confimation box, hit OK. Then on the main screen all the way at the top hit the circle with ABC thought bubble and go to "All Songs" here you can slow down or speed up the track and limit playback to an "A" point to a "B" point on repeat. I find the slowing down useful to learn guitar segments that can be complex.

  8. Must one press a button to first wake up the unit before pressing another button to advance one song? I loved the ipod for not making this a necessity. Anyone know?

  9. If you don't get because of your hearing, perhaps you're reviewing the wrong categoy of devices. Mate.

  10. I bought a NWA45 and in my opinion it adds a weird colour to the sound. More than 200 euros/dollards for a unit dedicated to music and still a poorer sound than an iPhone 6s (which has also more power). Seems like Sony released an idiophile serie (see https://www.amazon.fr/Sony-Audiophile-SR-64HXA-mémoire-Premium/dp/B00X1M80YW ). Ok it has LDAC but Bluettoth is garbage sound-wise and it removes most equalizer options. (I have a MDR-100X) Plus I now use Deezer HiFi so this unit is mostly worthless for me now (even if I have a decent CD Library…unfortunately a pain to transfer to this crap)

  11. I just got the NW-A55, but for some reason I can’t adjust the volume for my Bluetooth earphones. Anyone know how to fix this?

  12. THIS OR AN SMARTPHONE LIKE LG V30, 40, 50, G8 OR A DONGLE LIKE MEIZU HIFI PRO IN TERMS OF QUALITY OF SOUND? THANKS!!!

  13. I can see how a rigid frame would help in not transferring external noise to your headphones. Creaky plastic will ruin the sound.

  14. (CZE) Skvělý výrobek… ALE kdo špatně slyší, tomu nepomůže ani nejlepší přehrávač ani kvalitní sluchátka 🙂

  15. I'd love to see what you think about the NW-300
    I picked a used one up last time I was in Japan for about $300. After a couple of weeks I picked up some cheap IEMs to use in the 4.4mm jack which is more powerful and supposedly sounds better. I love it and wanted a portable device to use. I need more hi-res music, but so far I enjoy listening to it. And wonder to myself these days if it would sound that much better than the 100.

  16. You can't play DSD or MQA files on it but a Cowon D2 takes some beating. Excellent sound, good output and 52 hours of play back. Shame the UI is a bit meh!

  17. I sent an A45 back for exactly the same jarring top end. Apparently it's the digital amplifier which makes it so grating.
    You didn't mention the terrible computer interface software or the fact that the A45 / A55 is really picky when it comes to the format of album art.

  18. Having an aluminium case, blocks some RFI. If RFI gets into the analogue parts of the DAC chip, it brightens the sound. Hence that might be why they were claiming better bass with the solid aluminium case.

  19. I can't believe out of all companies Sony would try to feed you that BS about the frame making better sound

  20. Uses an Hi-Res Audio Player that Supports 4320kbit/s bitrate with an awesome DAC
    Connects Bluetooth Headphones via SBC Connection (~320kbit/s) which use their own DAC that make the A50 completely obsolete

  21. 4:15
    Hey can you explain how this battery care work?
    If it charge til 90% how do we know it? because theres no percent indicator
    And for me, A55 just awesome with small and elegant design
    And Im insist to bought this walkman because of Clear Audio+ haha
    I'm just disappointed about album sorted alphabetically, not release date in artist tab
