Sony NW-ZX100HN review

 

This likeable hi-res player hits the sweet spot for design, performance and price...

Clear, crisp and detailed sound ; Snappy and agile rhythm ; Taut bass ; Slim, comfortable and stylish build

Presentation is too polite ; Could be more expressive and dynamic ; Build quality could be more premium

This Sony Walkman’s design, performance and price hit the sweet spot – a very likeable hi-res player

Sony NW-ZX100HN review

 

The noughties meets high-resolution audio. But is it good?

Great battery life ; Stunning soundscape ; Good storage capacity

Antiquated OS ; Proprietary connection ; On-board audio processing

Sony's NW-ZX100HN is a well thought out piece of hardware, yet there's just too many niggles for us to be completely happy with how it's turned out. The sound quality is great, but the overall lack of usability, and streaming capacity really holds it...

Goondu review: Sony NW-ZX100 Walkman November 16th, 2015 | by Alfred Siew Audio-visual 0

 

The new model costs just a fraction of the price of top-end Walkman players, but with the most important feature - sound quality - still intact.

Sony Walkman NW-ZX100HN Hi-Res Music Player Bundle

 

The Sony Walkman NW-ZX100HN delivers beautifully balanced and transparent sound in a not-too-bulky form factor with excellent ergonomics and the unique plus of built-in noise cancellation, but only for its proprietary earbuds.

Built-in noise cancellation for supplied earbuds; Selectable DSD rolloff filter; Up to 70 hours per charge

No MQA; Challenging headphones will need more power

Sony NW-ZX100HN Portable Player and In-Ear Headphones Reviewed

 

Steven Stone reviews the Sony NW-ZX100HN portable hi-res audio player, which comes with a pair of Sony in-ear noise-canceling headphones. See how the duo performs.

The NW-ZX100HN's battery life is well above average ; Noise cancellation with the supplied in-ear headphones is flexible and works well ; The NW-ZX100HN delivers first-rate sound

The NW-ZX100HN does not support any streaming services ; The NW-ZX100HN's maximum storage may be a bit limited for big libraries ; The NW-ZX100HN's sound-enhancing modes may not improve the sound

When I travel, I'm constantly looking for ways to lighten my load. For world travelers, the NW-ZX100HN could be a perfect travel companion: it's light, it's compact, and its battery life is well above what you can get from other premium portable...

The outstanding portable

 

After the usual research I decided on this Sony product becuase I had an earlier, cheaper version. I had in mind long flights to Austalia , for example, and the long battery life seemed ideal. The sound quality is outstanding and the capacity is...

Consumer review (sony.com)

Very nice product but supporting software disappoi

 

The Walkman is a lovely little thing with very good sound quality. My only complaint is that if I import music that is split over several CDS the music gets shuffled out of order: rather than disk 1 track1, disk 1 track 2, ... disk 2 track 1, disk 2...

Excellent quality, exceptional value for money

 

I bought my Sony NW-ZX100 as a replacement for my 160GB Classic mp3 player which has now been discontinued. The good news is that the Sony NW-ZX100 is massively better (albeit more expensive - but it's well worth it). The sound from the ZX-100 takes...
