Product Specifications

Walkman introduces an exciting, new way to enjoy your music. Equipped with a built-in noise canceling system and enhanced Clear Audio technology, Walkman delivers distortion-free audio for a dynamic listening experience. Perfect for everyday commuters, frequent flyers, and those who enjoy peace and quiet in their portable listening experience, the Walkman NW-S706F Digital Music Player provides clear sound quality on a bustling street, a full airplane, or noisy commuter train without the need to increase volume and damage hearing. Enjoy clear sound even at a lower volume levels with the Walkman NW-S706F Digital Music Player's noise canceling system. Travel in peace with the EX Headphones' built-in microphones, which detect ambient noise and reduce it to 1/4 of the perceived sound level. Unlike most digital music players, the Walkman NW-S706F Digital Music Player prevents signal leaking from one channel to another, which can lessen the stereo effect. Sony's Clear Stereo technology reproduces clear stereo sound comparable to the original source. Clear Bass enhances bass without distortion - reproducing clear and firm bass instead of the dull sound delivered by conventional bass technologies. Enjoy your music with the full richness, depth, and clarity that only Sony's unique bass enhancing system can produce. The newly developed, large headphone driver unit realizes a wide frequency range and dynamic playback. Sony's EX Headphone produces crisp, high fidelity sound outside of the ear canal, while its unique shape delivers an exceptionally comfortable listening experience. Keep track of artist, song, album title, and other functions with the Walkman NWS705F 3-line color Organic EL Display. This attractive, newly designed display also shows album cover art and creates an impressive floating effect by powering the dots per character.
