Sony NWZ-A864 overview

  • 1Description

Complete with an FM tuner, the Sony 8GB A Series Walkman Video MP3 Player offers the affordability of an MP3 player with the features of a tablet or smartphone. The Walkman is Bluetooth-enabled, so you can link to other enabled devices like car stereos and home theaters to share music over a speaker system, or link to your computer to listen wirelessly to your music library. Plus, the player features Sony's integrated Media Go application software, which allows you to transfer music, videos, playlists and photos to the device with a simple drag and drop function from Windows Explorer or iTunes.

This model Walkman is endowed with 8GB of flash storage, so you'll have sufficient room to transfer tons of audio, video and photo files. You can even use Bluetooth technology to wirelessly transfer photos taken on a Bluetooth phone and view them using the Walkman's photo playback feature. The 8GB storage capacity can be filled with voice recordings as well. The Walkman has an integrated mic, which can be used to record conversations, lectures and meetings; after a recording is finished, you can save it onto the device's internal flash memory. Sony even created SensMe and Karaoke Mode, which let you organize your music into different moods or sing along with lyrics that scroll in perfect time with the song playing on your device.

To ensure that you are hearing the highest-quality audio available, the Walkman features Sony's Clear Stereo and Clear Bass Technologies, as well as DSEE, which restores the clarity and depth lost when digital music is compressed for faster transferring. The included premium EX headphones are also designed to improve the quality of digitally compressed music. Whether you like to sing along to your favorite songs or just demand a high-standard of aural quality, the Bluetooth-enabled 8GB A Series Walkman Video MP3 Player has the features and functionality to satisfy a wide-range of customers.
