The availability of entertainment-centered phones doesn’t seem to be good enough reason for Sony to stop coming up with some nifty Walkman members. The company recently unveiled their 7.2mm slim Sony Walkman S750 video MP3 player that features digital noise canceling technology which is cited to eliminate up to 98% of background disturbances. It strings along a pair of EX vertical in-ear headphones through which users can experience some high quality music.
The high frequencies that get buried in compressed music files are regained through DSEE technology and music sounds even better thanks to the included Clear Bass and Clear Stereo intelligence. Drag-and-drop transfers are made possible with the accompanying Content Transfer software that works with Windows Explorer and iTunes libraries. With Windows 7, conversion of DivX and AVCHD videos to Walkman-compatible files is taken care of easily.
Sony’s SensMe technology inspects the user’s music collection and intuitively builds a series of ten themed channels for every mood. Lyrics Sync rolls in track lyrics, while Karaoke mode lowers the original performer’s vocal level so that the user’s voice can be heard over the backing track. So not everyone’s a good singer; which is why there’s an adjustable playback key that enables tweaking of notes. What’s more, the battery is touted to extend up to 50 hours of music playback on just one charge.
Owners can surf through content on the 5.1cm LCD with a wide viewing angle and TruBlack technology. Wallpapers can be set from the user’s personal photos or the nine pre-installed selections. Language learning students can listen to passages played back at a reduced speed with the Language Learning function. Additionally, users can view content stored within the S750 in 720p resolutions on a home TV through the optional A/V output cable.
The device is shipped with an adapter that makes it a good travel companion. There’s no dearth of accessories for the Walkman, with the RDP-NWD300 and RDP-NWR100 speaker docks. The former renders full stereo sound while trickle-charging the player. The latter is a small-sized splash proof dock that’s meant for porting around with the Walkman.
Sony has revealed that the Walkman S750 will be out next month, though the pricing details haven’t received a clear mention.
