Hi-res noise-cancelling earphones

The Sony Walkman comes with a pair of hi-res noise-cancelling earphones so that wherever you are, you can make out each instrument, and appreciate every little nuance of your music, with less distortion and noise. Simply clean sound, like having a live orchestra inside your head.

Store up to 15, 000 songs

Touchscreen controls

Playing your music is a joy thanks to the 3.1” LCD touchscreen. It makes the music player easy to use when you're out and about, or on the train. Change tracks, create playlists, and more just by tapping the handy on-screen buttons.

Listen all day and more

Fill your entire day with music. A generous battery life provides up to 45 hours of listening time, so you can keep the party going on inside your head all-day.

The music player is Bluetooth and NFC-compatible. That means you can pair it with other music players, or even your PC to listen to music you already have saved at home.

Sound quality very good on supplied phones. Even better using hi-quality b/tooth link to xtnl D/A converter.
Display writing small and not easy to read.

Software could be more intuitive.

Delivering your online order

Get this delivered when it suits you

We’ll show you your current delivery options for this item in checkout. Subject to the time you order, and where you want delivery, these options will include:

  • FREE standard delivery in 4-7 working days
  • Next day delivery or any following day between 8am & 5pm (£5.00)
  • Delivery in a timeslot of your choice next day or any following day (£10.00)
Please note: if we’re out of stock of an item but getting more in, we indicate – on listings pages and the product page – how soon we can dispatch for delivery to you. In this case, please go ahead and order, and we’ll contact you later to confirm an exact delivery date.

Important update on our delivery service for small items

Our courier partners (DPD, Royal Mail and On the Dot) have all updated their delivery processes to take extra precautions due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please follow the below advice:

1. Customers can use the DPD app to nominate a ‘safe place’ for their delivery to be left if they do not want close contact.

For customers unable to use the DPD app, DPD is still able to offer a contact-free delivery, and will take a picture of the property and capture a proof of delivery name instead of capturing a customer signature.

2. Royal Mail is an unsigned service . Where Royal Mail needs to deliver a parcel, its teams will place the parcel at the customer’s door. Having knocked on the door, the delivery teams will step aside to a safe distance while the item is retrieved. If the delivery cannot take place, Royal Mail will take the parcel to the local depot for collection by the customer.  The parcel will be held for 18 days as per normal process.

3. For On the Dot, where a standard signature delivery is not possible, On the Dot will attempt to leave the parcel in a safe place and inform the customer of where the parcel has been placed.

To see the courier partner for your delivery, please check your dispatch confirmation email (which will also include your tracking reference).
