    used to have an NWZ E443, 8GB internal, 8hrs playback, but it finally died

    so I look out for a replacement
    I saw a 4GB version, but it cost P4K+
    then I saw the CM Flare 3, and (bell rings)
    why not?
    for the same price I can have an MP3 Player, a phone, etc.
    just look for the best music player and you’re good to go
    batter life? well in flight mode I think it can go a full days worth.

    Sweet deal sana. 128gb internal storage + micro sd slot kaso sobrang mahal para sa mp3 player.

    even for hardcore audiophiles, $1.2K is a lot of money.

    however if you are a pro or from the music industry this looks like a must have gadget even if it hurts the pocket a bit much.

      Most hardcore audiophiles have lots of money to spend. Just visit Head-fi forums and you’ll see.

    P51K+ for a music player?!
    no way I’d rather buy a flagship smartphone

    • doooood says:

      dude, this walkman is no longer the cassette walkman or cd walkman of the past where it is designed with everyone in mind.

      this is made for people who make their living off of music. (and those people who buy these things because they can.)

      still, $1.2k is still $1.2k.

  5. noa says:

    don’t be surprised that a serious music player is priced 50K when “mere” headphones cost just as much.

    lol wala pa yan sa pnakamahal na Digital Audio Player ng Astel and Kern abot 100k mag FiiO na lang kayo pag tight budget nyu or SonyWalkman A15

    Wow what a price tag!

  8. Tony says:

    Mahal! Iphone 6 plus, note 4 or other high end phones na lang kesa dito. Di na kasi uso ang ganitong devices like what happen to ipod. People want all in 1 device.

  9. KORITFW says:

    Walkman nwzx2 for $1.2K?
    Astell and Kern AK240 for $2.5K

    No thanks.

    I’ll just settle for Neil Young’s PonoPlayer which costs ‘only’ $400.

    Sure the Walkman and AK have better features but dollar for dollar, the PonoPlayer is the better choice.

    PonoPlayer needs to improve on its battery life though.
