Sony NWZ-ZX1 - 35th Walkman Anniversary model - Page 365

I had the same criticism many pages back and I sort of don't understand - when competitors like Apple allows you take tick an option in iTunes to disable the limit and Sandisk players (correct me if I'm wrong) allow you to change regions to get around it. Especially on an audiophile-grade product!

Sony did use to have the volume cap disable feature on their earlier EU flash walkmans via the engineers menu by pressing the hard buttons in the right sequence to enter this menu.  Why Sony could still not continue this sort of workaround on previous Walkmans until present day if other manufacturers use their own method of side stepping the issue one wonders?

I ordered the black version this week. I did think about going with the clear option, but was worried it would yellow over time. Not got the finger ring, just bought a lanyard so i can hook the zx1 to it and carry it around.

I didn't really give the yellowing much thought... If that happens I just go back to the black case I have. I just hate hiding the look of this beautiful device. Where did you get the lanyard from?

Nice. I've seen similar ones and thought about it. Let me know how you like it when you receive it please. probably more useful than what I purchased.
post #5466 of 7455

The yellowing is more likely to occur when you store the case without use and less likely when out in the open air.

 

I wouldnt recommend that case as the front of the player is completely exposed. I have a hard case on the back of my Z walkman and although it is protected well in the back, the front is prone to scrapes and drops.

 

Just a thought.

Very true. It has a very small lip in the front... But I bought this because it looks sexy so for me, I prefer to leave a little to look at. the closed cases really take away from the beauty, at least the cases I've seen. The ray out does have the screen protector too... But I'm going naked. At least till I drop and break it and need a new one... Lol.

I didn't like those leather cases. You need ones that open at the side. I think if I put it into to my bag I will use some sort of pouch to protect the front. I'm not that good at applying the screen protectors.

I have a problem with my ZX1 and maybe someone here has an idea about it:

 

I use an app for ausiobooks on it (Smart AudioBook Player) and it stops frequently without any reason. Every 2-3 track with the end of the track the app stops playing. As I use the same app on my Galaxy Note II I no it can do better. This is the 3. app that does not work propper on the ZX1 (all of them are fine on my phone) and it buggs me. Where is the sence in having an android-based DAP when I can not use the advantages of that system?

 

Any insights or good ideas are most welcome.

 

Regarding EU-volume cap: the sandisc sansas have a worcaround: you can just tell the player that you life outside EU. But that said I can even do lawn mowing with mine and am totaly fine with the volume. I think it is all about the right headphones.

As for the tagging: I keep reading about problems with album-arts etc. I use Mp3tag it is free it works just fine (albumart gets inbedded) and I have no problems across players (Covon J3, Sandisc Sansa zip/clip, varius Handys etc.) And it is easy enaough for me to use so no one person who is able to participate in this forum will be overwhelmed by it.

Can it edit tags and add artwork to music that is on the player?

I've had that happen on my nexus 5. I don't think it's a very good audiobook player. I'm sure the app mentions something about certain formats and there being issues with random stops.

only have tried this with the ZX1 worked just fine (did not do it with my other players) but my guess is you are talking about the same player so: yes it can.

Thank you, since I had no problems on my other devices I thought it might be a sony-thing. I wrote the the programmer, did not answer back jet. But since other apps just stop working on the ZX1 as well it might be a sony-problem after all?
