At about £180, the A15 is hardly cheap. In fact that's about the same price as an iPod Touch. The Sony has no apps, and no ability to go online, so it can't use streaming music services like Tidal and Spotify. It is, of course, an amazing sounding...

Not everyone needs a smartphone, that much is clear, and if you like listening to music but that don't necessarily need that feature rolled up with a smartphone, Sony's NWZ-A15 offers a solid amount of playback options for people who regard audio quality...

From vinyl, to CD to MP3, the market has always chosen convenience over quality, so by pushing high-resolution audio, it looks like Sony is onto looser here. And if the world of lossless music formats wasn't confusing enough for the consumer, selling a...

International Review By Alpha-Audio on 70

Sony zet een heel aardige speler in de markt met de A15. Het is met recht een High Res product: het speelt nagenoeg alles af. Ook zaken die niet in de specsheet staan. En als bonus kunt u ook foto's en video's bekijken, al zullen weinig mensen dat gaan...

Priced competitively at Php8,990, the Sony NWZ-A15 is a great buy for passionate music lovers. It's also good for the more hardcore audiophiles but they'll probably spend more on additional stuff like an external amplifier since they'll be using more...

У Sony получился отличный портативный плеер, который вполне может составить конкуренцию устройствам от FiiO, HiFiMAN и др. Чтобы приблизиться к подобному звучанию в смартфоне, придется выложить как минимум вдвое больше денег. Sony MWZ-A15 сочетает в себе...

Pokud hledáte maximální kvalitu zvuku a jste ochotni v některých ohledech ustoupit, přehrávače od Ibassa a Fiio budou tou lepší volbou. Po Sony ale sáhne bez delšího přemýšlení každý, kdo hledá velmi podařený a skutečně kapesní přehrávač s minimem...

每次特別具意義的周年紀念,Sony 都會照慣例發表 Walkman 紀念機種,在 2014 年迎接 Walkman 品牌 35 周年紀念時,發布獨具意義的 NWZ-ZX1 播放器,將獨特的音訊處理技術引入隨身播放器產品中。雖然最近已經推出新版隨身播放器 Walkman NW-ZX2,但所使用的技術基本上還是維持和 NWZ-ZX1 類似,只是更加深入的優化其部件的功能和實用性,而且也使得上一代產品的售價有所下降,使其更容易被大多數買家所接受。SONY Walkman 35周年紀念另外,SONY...

From cassette to MiniDisc to CD to MP3 and now Hi-Res audio, SONY is the leading portable audio player brand. I had a chance to attend SONY Hi-Res audio demo in 2014 and tried the NWZ-ZX1 Hi-Res audio player. I was stunned by it, both the audio quality...

我很愛聽音樂,在車上,在家裡,在公司,我都會搭配著耳機聽著自己喜愛的嘻哈音樂。從錄音帶隨身聽,到CD隨身聽,到後期的mp3隨身聽我都一路參與了,後來手機發展到可以聽mp3後,我也將聽音樂的習慣改為使用手機,我第一支mp3手機是Siemens SL45...
