With the fast upgrading of digital products, like mobile phone, computer, laptop etc, the ways of listening to music also vary. But no matter what changes are happening, having a pair of earbuds or headphones on as people walking, biking, or riding to their destination is the unchanged fashion. The truth is that personal portable music did not exist in human life and was not the mainstream fashion like in 1990s. However, there are still so many senior enthusiasts and loyal fans of Sony flagship Walkman, like NW-ZX2 and collectors of classic Sony Walkman. So let's look back the development of Sony Walkman. And if you are the users of Apple Music, here this article will share a useful way to transfer Apple Music files to Sony Walkman to listen to music wherever and whenever you want.
The Development History of Sony Walkman
1. CD Walkman
Sony is always the industry leader of CD Walkman, and its glorious history of CD walkman is indelible. Although CD Walkman is no longer popular today, there is no denying that CD Walkman once stood unshakable historical position in the portable device. And as a devotee of CD Walkman, we need to look back it now and then.
2. Mini – Disc
Today, MiniDisc can hold data files as well as music, with the ability to record and reproduce audio in CD-quality (without ATRAC lossy compression). MiniDisc Walkmans are able to play and record MiniDiscs from digital and analogue sources, such as live audio from their microphone inputs. The first unit on the market, the MZ-1 was relatively large and unpocketable, but following model, MZ-R2, and subsequent MD Walkmans are quite compact.
3. Network Walkman
The first of these Walkmans was the NW-MS7 which had a removable 64 MB MagicGate Memorystick, which can download MP3 from network. At the time of its release on 1999 it then boasted NW-MS70D as the smallest MP3 player on the market.
4. Today's Sony Walkman MP3 and Sony Walkman App
Walkman MP3 marked the inclusion of popular codecs such as MP3, AAC and WMA. Walkman MP3 players reside in the same Network Walkman group. And In January 2013, Sony announced the launch of the first waterproof line of Walkman that resists depths of up to 2 meters.
Sony's Xperia line of smartphones is ported with Walkman App. These apps can be installed even if you're not rooted, and they feature Sony's signature design, so if you've been looking for a new music player or photo viewer, you needn't look any further.
