    Boo, the new walkmans are android os rather than sony walkman os.
    Keeping my trustworthy wm1A until they release newer wm series with no android

    Sorry, didn't mean to dissuade anyone from the new Firmware, but that is how I was hearing the new update :)

    They probably will... Or they may just keep producing ZX300, and 1A and 1Z for people that doesn't want android.
    Sony likes to keep production of older models when they offer different options. The nice thing is brand new they'd usually then come down in price when a clear successor came to the market.

    I tried 3.02 for only like 10 mins, didnt give it a very detailed listening, but i noticed lack of musicality against 3.01, felt the vocals a tad bit warmer on 3.01 and more musical, not sure if it was placebo, but i enjoyed 3.01 more.

    I might give it another try later.

    Yes I upgraded from 3.01. Using XBA-Z5 with kimber kable on balanced 4.4mm.

    Vocals are diferent i agree they felt like boosted on 1khz area wich gives that bass centric feeling it reminds me of 1.2

    I changed the dsee hx to strings and vinyl Processor to surface noise and I swear I’m getting a much warmer sound, probably even warmer than 3.01. Try it guys. I noticed that everyone who is commenting on the negative changes of 3.02 did not state their eq and sound effect settings or if direct mode is on. Those changes make a very significant change to the listening experience. I too was only using direct mode on for a long time since I had the 1A, but I noticed the vinyl Processor especially adds a warmth that I really like and tones down any harshness if there is. My eq is always flat and I never use Phase Linearizer and dynamic nomaliser.

    Maybe someone could try the settings i mentioned above and see if there’s a significant change in sound after updating to 3.02.
