Experience next generation sound

Enjoy High-Resolution Audio while you’re out and about with the Walkman® ZX1. Every single part, material, and feature of the ZX1 has been crafted by Sony engineers to realise the ultimate High-Resolution Audio experience on the move.

High-Resolution Audio, anywhere

Hear detailed, authentic sound on the move with High-Resolution Audio. With higher sampling and bit rates than CDs, High-Resolution Audio gives a wider dynamic range, for crisper highs, richer lows, and greater subtleties. This Walkman lets you enjoy your favourite music in PCM (WAV/AIFF), as well as lossless formats like FLAC (192kHz/24bit) and ALAC.

More stunning realism than ever

Uniquely developed for High-Resolution Audio, S-Master HX digital amplifier reduces distortion and noise through a wide frequency range. That enables detailed reproduction of high frequency sound, ensuring fidelity to its original source.

Upscale your music collection

Sony’s DSEE HX™ technology injects more life into your music, upscaling compressed files to near-High-Resolution Audio quality. Restoring the subtleties of the original recording, such as a violin’s most delicate notes, simulates the sound of live performance.

Supersized storage

Store up to 36,000 songs with a huge 128GB of storage.

All it takes is one touch

Simply hold the NWZ-ZX1 Walkman to another NFC*-enabled device such as a wireless speaker to stream music instantly with One-touch listening. *The N Mark is a trademark or registered trademark of NFC Forum, Inc. in the United States and in other countries.

Engineered for excellence

Tailored for outstanding sound, the NWZ-ZX1 is built with specialized components and an optimized electrical circuit layout. The internal design, plus a rigid machined aluminum alloy body, together create a player with maximum resistance to electrical interference, and uncompromised audio performance.
