We bet you didn’t think you’d be seeing any MP3 players (nonetheless a Walkman) being boasted about anytime soon. Well, guess again. Sony is still at it, and they just produced a digital music player designed specifically for the most pick of audiophiles, the NW-WMIZ Walkman.

These types of high-end digital audio players have been gaining some traction in the past five years. The general argument behind it is that with our new obsession of getting our music quickly and easily, we have moved too far away from quality. Sony’s response to this comes in the form of the NW-WM1Z. It is a digital music player that bills itself as one of the highest quality on the market thanks to its gold plated oxygen free copper body that has a higher resistance to magnetic interference. In the words of the designer and builder of the player, this all makes for a sound that has expansive and clear highs along with deep and powerful bass. High quality doesn’t come cheap though. The price for this audio player is set at $3,200. [Purchase]
