    In my opinion the NWZ-A86(x) Walkmans are the best Walkmans every made when you consider all things. Sound quality, build quality, features, looks, size, price.

    Fantastic DAP - a definite high point in recent Sony players. sold mine an age ago but have fond memories. Stupidly bought a Japan import with no English support but it was a great mix of portability, power and SQ.

    copy.png I have a pretty crazy story about mine, it's kinda long lol. I originally got interested and started doing research about getting a DAP back in November of 2011. I just wanted a way to get back to the roots of listening to music on a device that you can ONLY listen to music on to become fully immersed without the distractions of an email, facebook notification, etc. on my smartphone. I almost got a 1st Gen Zune 30 because I thought they looked cool, as I did more research I decided I would focus on the sound quality more than anything. I looked at a lot of different players and reviews and ultimately decided on a walkman, then I ended up getting a black A865 for Christmas of 2011. I had it for about a month before I sent it back and used the money for a computer I wanted at the time, about 7 months later I ordered a white A865 from eBay in September 2012. I used the white A865 for a little over a year before I ended up pawning it November 2013 three hours away in Elizabethtown Kentucky while visiting a friend. Almost two years later in September 2015 I said what the heck and called the pawn shop to see if it was still there. I figured nobody would really know or appreciate what it is because everyone has their smartphones and the kids that want an mp3 player 99% of the time want a iPod, most people aren’t checking for Walkmans. When I called the pawn shop the owner said it was still there so I drove the three hours there to get it and three hours back and it was well worth it because I still use it almost everyday now.

    Speaking of Walkmans........
    NW-A35B = €89 (in a clearance sale today) and Hifiman HE-350 = €99 (Massdrop ~ 2yrs ago).

    Correct. I was in an electronics store and walked past it on clearance while on my way to the till!

    You can't even find these things on the shelves in the U.S. I think Best Buy still sells the Walkman NW-E393 but that is it.

    Also I like how your Walkman perfectly matches the color of your headphones, looks like it was meant to be :ok_hand:
