Sony Unveil New Walkman To Mark 40th Anniversary

Check out the 40th anniversary edition of the Sony Walkman

Back in 1979, Sony changed the music game with the release of the Walkman, allowing music fans to carry their favourite music around with them in their pocket – can you even imagine such a thing?! A lot has happened in music tech since then, thanks to the internet, streaming and a little company called Apple, but Sony have just announced that they’re going to release a new Walkman to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

This one doesn’t come with a tape-deck, however, instead it’s a 16GB device that you can also slot microSD cards into for almost infinite expansion.

Announced at this years’ IFA conference (Europe’s biggest tech event), Sony say the Walkman NW-A105 (catchy name, right) will focus on “supreme music quality” as it boasts Hi-Res Audio and the ability to upscale compressed sound files.

Check out the promo video below to see what 40 years of evolution can do to the Walkman.

Price and release date haven’t been formally announced yet, but we’re guessing it’ll be in time for Christmas. Because obviously.
