Walkman E580 with digital noise cancelling

Giving up to 77 hours play time from a single battery charge, the elegant new Walkman® E580 is your perfect partner for holidays, fun-filled weekends away or the daily commute.

Experience rich, high quality sound that’s the signature of Walkman®. Switch on ClearAudio+ mode and enjoy your music just the way it’s meant to be heard, with clear stereo, crystal-clear highs and powerful undistorted bass. There’s a full range of Sony audio technologies to enhance your listening, including Clear Bass, Clear Stereo and Clear Phase. DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) restores those subtle high frequency details that get lost when you’re listening to heavily-compressed digital music files. Unique to Sony, VPT (Virtualphones Technology) adds an extra dimension to your listening with the authentic ambience of a studio, club or arena.

Slip in the supplied in-ear phones and let powerful digital noise cancelling cut intrusive background sounds by up to 98%. Whether you’re flying, commuting by bus or train – or even working in the office – Walkman® E580 immerses you in a world of blissfully uninterrupted audio.

For the first time, E Series Walkman® now lets you enjoy music files in the popular FLAC format, widening your listening options even further.

Fabulous Walkman® sound is matched by equally desirable looks, with a slim, refined new aluminium body that adds an extra wow factor to your listening.
