NEW Sony Walkman Z Series mini review!!! - Page 162
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I don't like to rush to conclusion as often I started raving about some iems that ended few weeks later in the sale forum.
It is really impressing so far. Incredibly transparent and revealing....maybe too much. It has been described as neutral but I think the treble is quite present. Very good recording sound wonderful but I had issues on some albums with slightly "splashy" lower treble. Quite an unforgiving iem. The bass, which I was concerned might be too lean, is in fact absolutely perfect and superb, IMO.
I have been trying many tips but always get a slight discomfort after listening for few hours.
It sounds great through the Z but unfortunately it does benefit from an amp despite being very sensitive and easy to drive (probably due low and uneven impedance) unlike my PFE232.

It works fine on mine. I got sick of google map and installed "co-pilot" and paid $10 on it. Work great. Almost as fast at picking up GPS signal compared to Tom Tom 920. USA map takes 1.7 GB of memory from my Z1070 though.
I believe you'll need 3G data in order for it to be any good... or at least a separate GPS receiver...
So why bother having one on the Z? It would be such a great feature if useable.
In London, it work sometimes but often doesn't pick any signal. I wonder if there is some sort of calibration that can be done to improve signal.
I'll have to try it... my quick use (which was really only a few minutes)... I didn't get any accurate signals... so I assumed it used WiFi to try and triangulate or something.
The S-Master MX is not an equalization but is the nickname of Sony's Digital Amplification.
Well, you will have to take apart your Z first, but is definitely somewhere inside on that circuit board.
can one of you guys tell airkitoy how to find the 'equalizer'... it's one of the buttons at the bottom when a song is playing if memory serves me right (don't get mine back till later so can't advise at present)... cheers.
airkitoy... when a track is playing or you have the music-track on the full-screen... at the bottom of your WM-Z you will see the three control buttons, tap-on the one on the right-hand side and a pop-up screen appears, tap-on settings, then tap-on 'equalizer' you can then set to what you want via the two custom-settings... I'd also tick the boxes for DSEE, Clear Stereo and Dynamic Normalizer... doing that tightens everything up.... hope that helps.
