    Worthy evolution of the Sony Walkman

    Sony used to attach a sticker to their electronics simply saying "IT'S A SONY" and people automatically understood that the phrase stood for exceptional quality. Sony's new NW-A306 is no exception. The design is attractive, with a "water wave" designed back, making it "scratch resistant" and easier to hold. It's an Android device, so you will go through some steps not unlike setting up a new tablet or phone. Sony also has a program for your computer called "Music Center for PC" which assists with adding music to your portable player. Internal storage is modest with a 32gb internal storage, some of which is taken up by the Android operating system. However, the player has a slot for a micro SD card (I installed a 256gb card but you can go much higher) which allows for a rather sizable music library to be stored on the device. Since it's Android, music can easily be streamed from a number of music services using apps downloaded to the player from the Google Play Store, as long as the device is connected to wi-fi. On the home screen, there is an EQ adjustment and other sound adjustments you can use for tailoring the sound to your individual taste, however I used an option called ClearAudio+ which applies advanced digital signal processing in a single step operation (flipping the switch to "ON") in which case you don't need to mess with the EQ to get a stellar sound. Speaking of sounds, your ears are in for a real treat when you play music with this hi-resolution music player. I was amazed listening to music on this Sony player, because I heard subtle details of songs that previously, I could never decipher listening to these same songs on my phone or tablet, and that's only using mid-level headphones, not exactly top-of-the-line ones. I can only imagine how this music will sound listening on top-quality headphones that can truly do this amazing player justice. Even so, the sound quality was crisp and you can really notice the separation of different elements of a song. I prefer listening to electronic dance music, and minor things like background sounds a musician would include in a track become very noticeable. It's almost like experiencing these songs for the first time again! You don't have to be an "audiophile" to appreciate the sound quality produced by this player. Yes it really makes a difference to how your music sounds. Of course it does, because after all, IT'S A SONY!

    Love the way this sounds, works even better with Flac files and hi-res earphones and headphones. The tunabilty and overall sound from this is on another level, way better than any phone in 2023. Highly recommend this to anyone looking to get into hi res music and wants an affordable hi res player.

    The NW-A306 has good sound. I was surprised at how much Android logging-in is required to set it up, I was hoping for a non-streaming, SD-card based, offline, wilderness-capable product and hope to see one one day. On my android phone, Musicolet takes 50 minutes to scan my SD card but the same program on the NW-A306 takes about 8 hours, so if you are trying to be SD-card, mp3-based, it takes a long time to update (replace) the library file. As others have noted, the sound volume seems to be limited, and I was hoping for higher volume (seems to be a US-market PL problem). Nice small size. I hope to see a non-streaming option someday, and and longer battery life and maybe 5 or 6 times the memory (at 32 GB, it has 1/4 the memory of cheap 2021 android phones, which can essentially do the same job at 1/4 of the price).

    Fortunately if you want a player devoted to audio only and no distractions, go for this device. Be warned that this device picks up audible noise due to WiFi card. I thought I had purchased a faulty device at first, but after receiving the second one and attempting multiple headphones it was true that they are faulty in that aspect. This means you can’t stream music from apps that require WiFi without noise.

      Hi NateQ,

      We're truly happy that you like most of the features of your NW-A306 Walkman. We're sorry you've been running into difficulty. Your feedback is extremely important to us and is very much appreciated. Bluetooth audio equipment and wireless LANs (IEEE 802.11b/g/n) use the same frequency band (2.4 GHz). If you use the player near a device equipped with a wireless LAN, radio-wave interference may occur. It may cause a decrease in connection speed, noise, or connection failure. In this case, please follow the guidelines on this helpful link: https://helpguide.sony.net/dmp/1301/v1/en/contents/TP1000733579.html

      We also recommended updating the firmware of the audio player for optimum performance. The software update improves the general performance of the unit and includes key features, applications, and bug fixes.

    Not What I Expected - Device Has Issues

    Posted . Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
    This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.

    I always have been a fan of Sony electronics and over the years owned many of their excellent equipment. I unfortunately cannot say the same for the NW-A306 Walkman. While the device is clearly well-constructed feeling solid in hand, the audio quality playback is good, but not great, for both lossy and loss-less music. Sony’s sound enhancements, though, are a nice touch and do work well depending on the type of music formats. I found the Android OS to be clunky, cumbersome and slow like several other reviewers noted. Sony, why Android and not your own OS? I also found the touchscreen was not especially responsive and the device heated up fairly quickly without much use. Moreover, the battery life is no where on par with purported specs when connected to a Bluetooth headset or set of speakers. The deal-breaker for me and why I returned the NW-A306 though is the fact that the U.S. version limits (i.e., “restricts”) audio output to 50% when streaming audio to a Bluetooth headset (in my case a decent Sony BT headset) while the Japanese version does not. Can someone please explain the logic behind that decision, Sony? If the restricted audio is purely a software fix, then Sony, please release a patch fixing the issue for the U.S. version. I so wanted to keep this little digital music player but could not justify the cost in relation to the lack of noted benefits. As a result, I returned the NW-A306 and at this time cannot recommend the music player to others under the current configuration.

      Hi JP1811,

      We're sorry to hear that you are having some issues with your Sony NW-A306 Walkman and it didn't meet your expectations. We also regret that you find the android OS feels slow and laggy as well as poor battery life and touch panel does not respond or respond poorly. If your Walkman exhibits any of this symptom, the issue may improve by updating the unit.

      Moreover, due to the nature of the touch panel, it may not respond or you may feel that the sensitivity is bad depending on how you touch it. In this case, touch the center of the icon firmly from directly above. Especially, as the icon located in the lower part of the screen is small, be sure to touch it correctly.

      A separate article is available as well if the touch screen of the Walkman does not work on this link here: https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/articles/00234084

      The Walkman consumes battery even when on playback standby, so the battery life will be shorter if the player is on standby for a long time. If multiple applications run, the battery consumption will also increase, and the usage time will be shortened. Battery life also varies depending on usage conditions, settings, and temperature. We do have good information on how to maximize the battery life of your Sony Walkman on our Support website.

      We have noted your input about the clunky android interface and volume cap/restriction, leading to lower volume output and will be sure to forward this feedback to the appropriate department. If you have any specific suggestions or features you'd like to see, feel free to share them with us. Your insights are important to us as we work to meet and exceed your expectations.

      It's also unfortunate that the unit had to be returned. We hope you will consider Sony again in a future purchase.
      Thank you for the feedback.

      Sincerely,
      Jess Sony_US

    I was very disappointed. The bass was horrible. Even after the update the bass was flat. No depth to the music at all. A lot of apps I would never use. I don’t need a calendar or calculator on my music player. Battery life was only a fraction of stated. Even with the Bluetooth & Wi-Fi off. The volume is limited by design in the US. This is a deal breaker for me. I don’t listen at deafening levels but with this player I couldn’t. Album art work was not transferred for most of my FLAC files ripped from CDs. I put the exact same micro SD card in a different player and the art work transferred just fine. I have been a big Walkman fan since the CD Walkman & minidisc Walkman. This is not worthy of the name.

      Hi DarioG,

      Thank you for reaching out to us with your concern. We're so sorry to hear that you are having battery draining issues with NW-A306 and it hasn't performed to your standards. This is definitely not the customer experience we want you to have. Your feedback regarding the AVLS (Automatic Volume Limiter System) function is extremely important to us and is very much appreciated.

      The Walkman consumes battery even when on playback standby, so the battery life will be shorter if the player is on standby for a long time. If multiple applications run, the battery consumption will also increase, and the usage time will be shortened. Battery life also varies depending on usage conditions, settings, and temperature. For more details, you can check the article link below for ways to reduce battery consumption and increase battery life.

      https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/articles/00234119

      The NW-A306 has AVLS (Automatic Volume Limiter System) function. Using AVLS limits the maximum volume. To disable AVLS, refer to this help guide link: https://helpguide.sony.net/dmp/1301/v1/en/contents/TP1000733590.html

      You can also uninstall an app from the Walkman player. Please note that pre-installed apps cannot be uninstalled. While you can't uninstall these apps, you can, however, disable them in certain cases. To disable an application, touch and hold the application icon you want to disable. Tap Disable. If Disable is not shown, tap the info icon for more options. For instructions on how to uninstall an app from the Walkman player, please visit this link.

    My husband had one of these that we used on each of our vacations. Sadly, it got washed into the ocean on a trip. It was out of stock for a while, I was thrilled to see it was finally available for purchase. This is a bit smaller than the original item he owned but offers all of the same features. He loves it and uses it with Bluetooth often to do an assortment of tasks. Great sound, great item worth every penny.

    Great item for audiophiles on a budget. I bought the music player about a month or 2 ago but had an ongoing software issue where the bass was forced creating a muffled feel to it. This was fixed a month ago so I can truly recommend it now. Only thing I will say is that I’d pay to get the JP/HK version imported as the volume isn’t capped

    The sound is great, but the worst thing about it is that it's a slow Android device. Some of the menus are hard to use and feel clunky, and there's no back button or home button, so most of the time you'll have to spam the back arrows to go through every page you've opened just to close an app. For $300+, it's a bit of a disappointing user experience. On the other hand, compared to my phone, the sound is great.

    Overall Terrible Experience

    Certainly confused by the high ratings this gets on Best Buy's reviews. This device has been an absolute headache to get working and stable. Yes, the OS can be sluggish to respond and this non-Japanese version is limited, but that's the least worrying bit. If you try to use any streaming app the experience gets worse -- Spotify and Tidal run into serious issues on this device. With Spotify, there's the issue of the app trying to redownload your offline tracks each time you power on the Walkman (the only fix seems to come from a few Reddit posts -- yes, NOT from Sony's website and NOT from an included manual BUT from Reddit). Tidal fairs even worse, the app can run extremely slow and can crash with no notice -- playing the first track can take 90 seconds to start and skipping tracks often causes the app to fail. Both apps were used with downloaded music for offline play on a speedy Samsung microSD card which in theory should provide a better experience than relying on Wi-Fi streaming, but that was certainly not the case. Even when playing local music through the integrated Walkman app (the intended Sony Walkman experience I guess) the Walkman and app will also hard crash... The battery life compared to other Sony Walkman players is suggested to be considerably better in reviews, but it will absolutely NOT get you anywhere near a full work day's worth of playback -- in my experience it will discharge well within about 4 hours of playback at 50% brightness with both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth off (any lower brightness and it the screen becomes difficult to see under daylight). In addition to a pretty bad battery life, it also gets notably hot after more than a few minutes of audio playing. Many of these problems can likely be fixed by Sony in future firmware updates and software patches, but until then I cannot recommend this Walkman to anyone looking for a quick way to get set up with a dedicated portable device for music playback. If you do decide to get this, be ready to commit to researching for various fixes from community forums and Reddit posts as well as perhaps factory resetting this a handful of times to get this working right.

    Excellent device. I am enjoying my music and the streaming services too. Sony places music in a high-end level. The android system is quick and gives stability to the unit. Very easy to use and the cassette screensaver will add a retro element that any X gen love. But do not forget the password because it does not have a way to factory reset, and you will need to send it to a Sony Technical Service Support.

Can stream through Spotify and other apps but it also allows me to click & drag songs from my computer. Small enough to fit in just about any pocket. Battery life is excellent.

    I like it! It's nice how portable it is especially with not too many choices out there anymore in terms of phone size. Plus having an audio jack is the main reason I bought it. There are a couple of things that bug me a little, the storage that the Android systems take up is insane! I could have doubled my downloaded liked songs on Spotify (4,000 songs) if it had taken up less room. Also, when I was first setting up my device it asked if I wanted to have a set turn-off time and I accidentally clicked an hour, I haven't figured out how to turn off this feature (even with googling it) so if you know I would love to know! Besides those it's not a bad purchase for the price and I'm happy to have it so I don't always have to listen to the radio on road trips!

      Hi Itok, Thanks for the positive feedback! We are happy to hear you love everything, especially the exceptional sound quality of your NW-A306 Walkman player. You're now able to experience music 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/96kHz and beyond), High-Resolution Audio allows you to get closer to the original studio recording. Plus, with a 32GB integrated memory and an SD card slot, the NW-A300 series Walkman lets you take even the biggest music collections on the go. We appreciate your recommendation. Thanks for the 5-star rating and for choosing Sony! -Jess Sony_US
