The sound quality is excellent.
Skip Grayson
I can not believe that anyone out there who uses expensive headphones would waste them on low quality players and not own this Walkman.
Murray Biluk
The android interface is a bit slow though and sometime unresponsive.

I've had the NW-ZX1 for about a week now. Since it's such a rare and particularly expensive media player, which needs to be imported (at least, for those of us in America), I thought I'd offer my observations and perhaps provide some sort of frame of reference for those who might be interested in the device.

I'll start out by stating that I in no way consider myself an audiophile. So, you won't find a lot of verbose and adjective-filled descriptions of the sound in this review.

Currently, my primary music player is a 5th gen, 32GB iPod Touch. I also happen to have a Sony Xperia Z Ultra smart phone which, certainly can be used for music playback (and can mirror some of the functionality of the ZX1 since they're both based on Android and have some proprietary Sony software).

As for headphones, I use a pair of first generation Klipsch Image Ones. I also use Shure SE-115s while on-the-go. If you consider yourself an audiophile, you will probably recognize both of these headsets as distinctly NOT audiophile quality. But at the same time, it is easy to consider both headphones far above the quality of typical pack-in headphones one would normally receive with a media player--which the ZX1 does not include at all.

My intention for getting the ZX1 was not out of a desire to obtain a media player that had better output quality than the Touch. In fact, doing a little Googling will reveal a number of reviews which utilize pro-level equipment on the Touch--reviews that determine it has excellent output. Take this review, for example:

EDIT: I see Amazon no likey external links. Fine. Search for "Ken Rockwell ipod touch audio".

No. Instead, my intention was two-fold. First, I want to get out of the Apple ecosystem.

This is a high quality piece of hardware, focused on playing music. The screen might not be the highest resolution, but the sound is great, detailed, subtle and rich - best i have ever heard from a portable music player. I have some issues with battery life - it so far is nowhere near the claimed figure, but maybe I am too connected to the internet and it is running things down rather quickly.

I use it combined with a Sennheiser Momentum headphone, and the sound is absolutely stunning.
Copying files to the ZX1 is a piece of cake, took me a few evenings to copy 300 CDs in Flac format, and a few Hires files.
I still have 39 GB left, so plenty of storage room.
CD Flac quality sounds absolutely great, the Hires files sound only slightly better.

The build and sound quality of the player are excellent, just what you would expect from Sony’s top Walkman. Sound quality (DSD playback possible with firmware upgrade), ease of file transfer, physical buttons on the side and user interface (android op. system for 3rd party apps) all get 5/5. There are only a few things preventing the NW-ZX1 from being the perfect audio player. Battery life is shorter than expected; the use of proprietary cable instead of standard USB and the lack of memory expansion drag my rating down to a 4/5. I can’t imagine how the $1,200 - $1,500 audio players could possibly be better than the NW-ZX1 (with Sennheiser IE800 IEMs).

I do not have the extensive vocabulary of an audiophile nor can I go into the minutiae of why this device is better but my brain can tell that the quality of music is better than my iPhone 5S, iMac, and macbook pro. I have been using sennheiser momentum headphones and they are superb as well, equal in quality to the bowers and wilkins P7. If you are an iTunes user, download isyncr for both the walkman and your mac/pc. Syncing was seamless and my iTunes playlists were replicated exactly.

I just received it today, so am still working through things. But I wanted to add an important advisory. This is the for unique connecting cable that is USB on one end only. It is WMC-NW20MU and is available at Amazon and eBay. Cost is around $5 give or take. I have just ordered one myself. That eased my mind about having a backup for this unique cable, as it will yours, too. I also discovered that you are not limited to charging from a PC. I plugged that cable directly into a brick (that plugs into 110V outlet) and has a USB port. And the Walkman took a charge. So that is a relief. You could even have a charging port w/USB port in your car as a backup.
Now I am going to load up some songs, etc.

I am using Shure 846 to pair with this music player. Overall I am satisfied with the quality of the workmanship and the sound. The seperatation and detail is good. However, when u turn on audioclear+, u will find out the base is too strong. I prefer to turn off the surround which create better music perception, or mostly set surround to studio.

I bought this last week to replace my 64Gb ZuneHD, which no longer has the storage capacity to meet my needs but, in every other way, has been exceptional. These are big shoes to fill and while the NWZ-ZX1 has some really good features, overall it is a little disappointing.

HARDWARE - 2.5 stars: First up, it looks great and seems to be very well made. At first glance it could easily be mistaken for a smartphone, although it is a little thicker and I don't think too many smartphone customers would be happy about the bulge in the lower quarter of the device. That doesn't worry me, though, as I bought this to listen to music at home. I've read a few remarks about the screen quality but I think it is more than good enough for what this device is. It seems quite responsive to touch, too, although it gets finger marks at twice the rate of any smartphone I've ever owned. The large, brass looking headphone jack gives it a sense of purpose. The proprietary cable is a bit of a worry, although it has never really been a problem with the ZuneHD so I'm not too fussed. Battery life is quite poor, no better than my 4 year old (and much smaller) ZuneHD, so you'll be charging it every other day if you listen to a lot of music.

FEATURES - 4 stars: It has way more than I care about. It has both wi-fi and Bluetooth, so connectivity is good, but if you want to take advantage of the high quality audio capabilities, you'll need to plug it in via a standard audio cable. Having a row of physical transport buttons below the volume up/down buttons, on the side of the device, is very handy.

SOFTWARE - 2 stars: It runs Android 4.1, wich means you can load as many apps as you like and use it for all manner of things. That might be a blessing for some but I find it annoying. e.g.
