    You can check my review for that: https://www.headfonia.com/review-sony-wm1a-walkman/

    You can see my explanation on the second page.

    Edit: Oh, it's been quoted already, OK :)

    Yes! Exactly that!

    As I was told here, my concerning (to me) pic's posted a while ago, I was told it's common! As experienced by me with a 2nd WM1Z, it appears to be!

    It doesn't affect functionality whatsoever, purely an aesthetic thing. HOWEVER, for the $$$, whoever made that component, could have addressed that situation when made. A swipe of a file, sand the edge, whatever.

    I’ve got nothing like that after nearly 2 1/2 years near daily use

    Not from any use or misuse. It's the way it came, new, as manufactured.

    I don't have a WM1A or 1Z, but my ZX300 was also like that that from the start so you're not alone

    A cheapest bidder component, OR, the new guy didn't yet perfect his craft... LOL

    My 1Z is like that too. Still there are much more important things (in quality) than tiny superficial microscopic fly-butt size marks. IMO

    It’s just part of the deal. IMO

    Sound advice. Thank You. Perfectionism, a horrific perpetual self inflicted at times; misery. I'm guilty of it at times. Perhaps more, sometimes mostly. But.. aren't most of the folks here? Audibly ?

    Character maybe? :)

    Also the sound has character too?

    I guess when someone gets their DAP and then they notice the marks?

    It’s like.... what?

    Still I have curiosity more. Like; why are they there....is it a result of some build process. Someone signed off on this, for all the players to be like this.......lol.

    I’m used to them now.
