Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 630-879-1286 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

ZX300 Walkman® ZX Series

Sony NWZX300S

Features

  • Experience digital music to the fullest with High-Resolution Audio. By capturing music at a higher rate than CD, increasing both audio samples per second and the bitrate accuracy of each sample, High-Resolution Audio offers an uncompromised rendition of an artist's music. Savor every breath and subtle movement for a truly emotional experience.
  • Enjoy studio-quality sound, thanks to the Direct Stream Digital (DSD) audio codec-designed specifically for High-Resolution Audio. This 1 bit format operates at a far higher frequency than conventional PCM digital audio, resulting in a more natural, and intensely detailed sound. The result is clearer, crisper, High-Resolution Audio quality.
  • Enjoy a High-Resolution Audio experience with the S-Master HX digital amplifier. Using a simplified and fully digital signal path, S-Master HX reproduces the subtleties and wide frequency range of high resolution formats. Unlike conventional amplifiers, it maintains the digital signal until right before the speaker output, eliminating distortion - for High-Resolution Audio, just as the artist intended.
  • Go beyond CD quality. DSEE HX builds on our proprietary DSEE technology, upscaling compressed audio files to a level that's closer to High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the subtleties of the original recording that are lost during the compression process, DSEE HX delivers a rich, studio-quality audio experience for all your music.

Step inside a true music machine

Take a look at the technology that makes this Walkman® special.


Technically superior in every way

Feel every note and nuance with High-Resolution Audio. Class-leading sound technologies take your listening experience into a whole new realm of realism and purity.


Aluminum milled frame resists noise

A rigid aluminum milled frame provides strong resistance to electrical noise for clear, stable sound.


A Walkman of precision parts

FT CAP (high-polymer capacitor)

The large capacity FT CAP provides clean, reliable voltage for well defined and immensely powerful bass notes.


High-quality solder

A high-quality solder applied to the circuit board and S-Master HX full digital amplifier ensures clearer sound and vocals.


Balanced output

A 4.4 mm balanced connector supplies compatible headphones with fully discrete left and right channels for less noise and clearer sound.


Film capacitors

High-quality film capacitors deliver voltage with a linear response across frequencies, resulting in reduced distortion and noise.


BLUETOOTH® wireless streaming at its best

Enjoy high-quality music streaming thanks to LDAC, our premium wireless codec. With 3x the bit rate of standard BLUETOOTH® technology, you can enjoy a superior listening experience for all your music. Full aptX HD audio compatibility is available with firmware update.


Touch-ready

A touch-sensitive Matte Glass screen allows smooth fingertip control with fewer fingerprints.

  • A rigid aluminum milled frame provides strong resistance to electrical noise for clear, stable sound.
  • The NW-ZX300 Walkman® features a balanced standard plug, designed for the new 0.17" balanced connection cable. This supplies compatible headphones with fully discrete left and right channels, unlike conventional headphones that share a ground wire. The result is far better external noise suppression and improved stereo imaging, as well as more headroom for powerful sound delivery.
  • Higher-quality film capacitors contribute to more efficient circuit-board design and better sound quality. These film capacitors also supply voltage with a linear response across frequencies, resulting in reduced distortion and noise on everything you listen to.
  • We spent 3 years developing the FT CAP with a singular focus on delivering powerful sound. Its large capacity means it can deliver reliable and clean voltage. This ensures well-defined and immensely powerful bass notes are delivered to the headphone output.
  • A high-quality solder has been used for the circuit board and S-Master HX full digital amplifier CXD-3778GF. Applying the solder to the rear of the S-Master HX amplifier provides a more efficient electric connection, contributing to clearer sound and vocals.
  • Enjoy your music in higher-than-CD quality with LDAC wireless audio transmission. LDAC uses a conventional BLUETOOTH® wireless connection, but transfers at a maximum data transfer rate up to 990 kbps-approximately three times that of other audio profiles. The result is enhanced wireless listening much closer to the artist's intention. The best way to experience wireless audio with compatible BLUETOOTH® wireless speakers and headphones.
  • Experience the great sound quality of the NW-ZX300 as a USB Digital-Analog Converter (DAC) for your PC or Mac computer. When connected and activated, using the supplied USB cable, the NW-ZX300 replaces your computer's regular sound processing with its own highly tuned processing hardware. Enjoy premium sound quality, whether you're at home or in the office, commuting or in a coffee shop.
  • Master Quality Authenticated is an audio format that compresses large studio quality files without audible loss, so you can easily enjoy High-Resolution Audio music on your Walkman.

  • A touch-sensitive matte glass screen allows smooth fingertip control with less fingerprints.
  • Simple, near instinctive side-key control enables you to control your music with ease.
  • Never run out of power when you're on the move. The NW-ZX300 holds enough charge for up to 30 hours of 128 kbps MP3 playback, or up to 26 hours of 96 kHz/32 bit FLAC High-Resolution Audio playback, so you don't have to worry about finding a charger when you're out and about.
  • In addition to the integrated 64 GB memory, there's also room for a microSD card, so you can take even the biggest music collections on the go.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
