  • The NW-A306 reproduces high-quality sound with a sleek design 
  • Enjoy up to 36 hours battery life with the NW-A306 
  • It also comes with DSEE Ultimate™ to enhance streaming music quality 

Sony has introduced a new music player, the NW-A306 to the Walkman® series family. The player is designed for listeners to hear music the way the artist intended with high-quality sound and a sleek design.  

The NW-A306 is designed for discerning users looking for high quality sound and style. This stylish and compact music player lets users download and stream more of the music they love. The NW-A306 series is dedicated to delivering exceptional music experiences right from the user’s pocket thanks to full Wi-Fi® compatibility, weighing just 113 grams plus the comfort and function of both a 3.6” (9.14cm) touch screen and tactile physical music controls.  

The premium aluminium milled frame on the NW-A306 provides superior rigidity for low impedance and clear, stable sound and solid bass.   

S-Master HX digital amp technology, independently developed for Walkman® is compatible with the native DSD format. It reduces distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies, for rich and full-bodied sound, further enhanced by new high-quality sound lead free solder. 

Just like the latest Signature Walkman® model, the NW-A306 applies a reflow solder containing gold, whose effect is significant in the overall improved sound localisation and wider sound space. 

To realise the music player’s evolutionary sound, a dual clock, film capacitor and fine sound register have been precisely placed within the Walkman®. 

The NW-A306 uses Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Ultimate™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) which accurately upscales compressed digital music files to higher quality. The evolving algorithm now delivers even greater benefits for CD-quality (16 bit 44.1/48kHz) lossless codec audio. Restoring acoustic subtleties and dynamic range provides a richer, more complete listening experience. 

With further progress from its predecessor models, listeners can enjoy DSEE Ultimate™ for upscaling music, whether it is Wi-Fi® streamed or downloaded. Plus DSEE Ultimate™ can also be enjoyed with wireless headphones. 

The NW-A306 features a longer battery life compared to previous models so listeners can immerse themselves in more of their music. The NW-A306 has a battery life of up to 36 hours of 44.1kHz Flac playback, up to 32 hours of 96kHz FLAC high resolution audio playback or up to 26 hours with the streaming service app to meet user’s demand.

Our products are not only designed to be stylish but also with the environment in mind. No plastic is used in the packaging material for the NW-A306, reflecting Sony’s commitment to reducing the environmental impact of our products and practices.  

NW-A306 has a suggested retail price of €330 and will be available to purchase across Europe from January 2023.
