ZX500 Walkman® ZX Series

Sony NWZX507S

Features

  • Take your digital music collection to another level with High-Resolution Audio. By capturing and reproducing digital audio at a higher rate than CD (24-bit/96 kHz and beyond), High-Resolution Audio allows you to get closer to the original studio recording.
  • Supreme quality with 11.2 MHz DSD native using balanced headphones and PCM 384 KHz/32-bit support.
  • The S-Master HX digital amp reduces distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies for rich, full-bodied sound.
  • Audio upscaling is improved even further by our DSEE HX processor which intelligently recognizes instruments, voices, and musical genres. By identifying these, and the relative energy of the audio, it can accurately rebuild audio lost during digital compression, for a full-fidelity experience, even with compressed formats. The DSEE HX processor still works even when you're streaming music.

See what sets this Walkman® apart

Take a look at the technology behind truly authentic sound.


Walkman 40th Anniversary

This year marks the 40th Anniversary of Walkman®. The first Walkman TPS-L2 launched in 1979 and became a design and engineering icon, changing the way people listen to music forever. For the first time, it was possible to enjoy your favorite tracks, albums and artists in high-quality sound, anytime, anywhere - and we've been doing so ever since.


Every note as the artist intended

Take your digital music collection to another level with High-Resolution Audio. By capturing and reproducing digital audio at a higher rate than CD (24-bit/96 kHz and beyond), High-Resolution Audio allows you to get closer to the original studio recording.


Hi-Res Audio Wireless

Enjoy High-Resolution Audio quality music streaming thanks to LDAC, our premium wireless codec. With 3x the bitrate of standard BLUETOOTH® technology, you can enjoy a superior listening experience for all your music.


Balanced output

A 4.4 mm balanced connector supplies compatible headphones with fully discrete left and right channels for less noise and clearer sound.


Engineered for Superior Sound

The NW-ZX500 Walkman® is precision-engineered using the highest-quality materials and components so you can enjoy an exceptional listening experience.


Aluminum milled frame

A rigid aluminum milled frame provides strong resistance to electrical noise, helping the NW-ZX500 to deliver clear, powerful bass notes.


Copper Milled Block

Inside the Walkman's compact body, components are mounted on a milled block crafted from copper. Thanks to its larger dimensions, compared to previous models, the block results in reduced resistance and improves electrical grounding for the digital section, enabling the NW-ZX500 to realize even clearer sound.


Newly developed FT CAP

Custom-made for Sony and tuned by Sony engineers, the newly developed FT CAP (high polymer capacitor) strengthens the power supply to the amp block for a balanced output. This helps the NW-ZX500 deliver expansive vocals and instrumentation, plus powerful bass notes.


Electric double-layer capacitor

An electric double-layer capacitor has been used as the main power source for delivering power from the battery. Able to instantaneously supply large volumes of power, it can accurately output signals by preventing sudden falls in voltage. The result is clear, powerful bass.


Optimized circuit board layout

By dividing the Audio block (highlighted in red) and the Power/Digital block (in blue), the circuit board layout has been optimized to ensure sound quality is unaffected by digital noise.


Film capacitors

High-quality film capacitors deliver voltage with a linear response across frequencies, resulting in reduced distortion and noise.


Advanced solder containing gold

The exceptional conductivity of gold ensures absolutely minimal signal loss. For clearer sound and vocals, a premium, audio-grade lead-free solder with a small amount of gold connects the circuit of the NW-ZX500 to the battery.


Crystal oscillator

Two compact low-phase-noise crystal oscillators ensure precision clock stability at sampling rate multiples of 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz. With the dual crystal oscillators, the NW-ZX500 is able to achieve audio quality with a good signal-noise ratio and faithful digital reproduction.


POSCAP for enhanced low-range performance

The POSCAP within the NW-ZX500 are used to strengthen the power supply of the amp block for unbalanced output, enhancing low-range reproduction performance for a more expansive listening experience.


NFC One-touch and Bluetooth® for instant connectivity

Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth® wireless technology make connecting to your music fast and easy. Just touch your NFC-enabled device to your NW-ZX500 Series for a quick, seamless connection, then start streaming. No NFC" No problem. Connect via Bluetooth and you're ready to go. LDAC and aptX HD audio compatibility is available.


Wi-Fi compatible for direct download and streaming

Supported by Android and compatible with Wi-Fi, the NW-ZX500 offers you even more ways to listen to your music. Enjoy your favorite streaming and music apps right on your Walkman or connect to a PC to access your music collection.


USB Type-C port

The NW-ZX500 features a USB Type-C port for easy connectivity with a range of devices.


Compact, handy size

The NW-ZX500 Walkman offers high-quality sound in a compact device - so you can take your favorite music with you anywhere.


Cassette Tape UI

The NW-ZX500 features a special Cassette Tape user interface and screensaver. The cassette tape visual that appears on your Walkman® display varies depending on the codec of the music you're listening to.


Premium design

Finished in high-quality aluminum, the curved body of the NW-ZX500 is designed to sit comfortably in your palm and slide easily into your pocket.


Intuitive side key controls

Easily access play/pause, change music selection and adjust volume using conveniently positioned side panel controls.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
