The newest addition to the legendary WALKMAN family is guaranteed to turn heads with stunning sound and slim, sensational looks in luxurious aluminium. Measuring just 7.2mm thin for effortless portability, the colourful WALKMAN S750 Video MP3 player lets you enjoy your music, videos and podcasts in unmistakeable style.
Premium metallic looks are paired with rich, satisfying audio by Sony. Plug in the high-quality EX vertical in-ear headphones and experience beautiful WALKMAN sound, with Digital Noise Cancelling cutting approximately 98.0% of ambient sound. A supplied adaptor lets air travellers enjoy the plane’s in-flight entertainment system with digital noise cancelling provided by WALKMAN.
Complementing the Digital Noise Cancelling and EX headphones, the S750 is loaded with other Clear Audio technologies by Sony to get the best out of your music collection. Clear Bass and Clear Stereo are joined by DSEE that restores the high frequencies lost in compressed music files.
Sound quality aside, the WALKMAN S750 also makes it brilliantly easy to enjoy your existing digital music collection. Supplied Content Transfer software simplifies drag-and-drop transfers to WALKMAN from Windows Explorer or your iTunes library (not including DRM files).
Windows 7 even takes care of converting DivX and AVCHD video files stored on your hard drive to playable format for viewing on WALKMAN.
The bright, clear 5.1cm (2”) LCD offers a superb view of videos, photos and cover art with a wide viewing angle. In a WALKMAN first, TruBlack technology reduces screen reflections, boosting contrast whether you’re indoors or outside.
Personalise WALKMAN by selecting your favourite photo as wallpaper for the player’s home menu screen. Alternatively, pick from nine pre-installed wallpapers to reflect your personal taste.
Looking to match your listening to your mood? Unique to Sony, SensMe™ technology analyses your music library, automatically creating a series of 10 themed channels. Just pick your channel to suit the moment, from mellow to upbeat.
The WALKMAN S750 gives music lovers a choice of exciting entertainment options. Lyrics Sync displays lyrics of your favourite song on screen. Karaoke Mode reduces the original performer’s vocal level so your voice can be heard clearly over the backing track. If you’re struggling to hit those high or low notes, playback key can be adjusted up or down to match anyone’s vocal reach without changing playback speed. You can even connect WALKMAN to any TV with an optional A/V output cable and invite friends to your own karaoke party.
The WALKMAN S750 also helps busy language students master tricky phrases more quickly. A Language Learning function ‘loops’ a chosen passage for listening at reduced playback speed without changing pitch or losing clarity.
Nothing on TV? Plug WALKMAN S750 into your television via the optional A/V output cable and enjoy videos on screen in crisp 720 x 480 resolution.
Extra-long battery life lets you enjoy up to 50 hours of music playback time (10 hours video playback) from a single charge1.
Release your WALKMAN favourite sounds while you’re relaxing at home with the stylish RDP-NWD300 speaker dock. Available in black or white and supplied with a handy remote, it delivers clear, full stereo sound while trickle-charging WALKMAN. A perfect travel partner for WALKMAN, the new RDP-NWR100 is a compact, splash-proof speaker dock that looks and sounds great by the poolside, on fun days outdoors or even in the bathroom while you’re having a shower.
The new WALKMAN S750 is part of the full line-up of MP3 and MP4 players by Sony. The WALKMAN range includes the advanced A Series with premium looks, sound and features; the wireless, wearable W series for sports; the fun, colourful E Series and the accessible, easy-to-use B series.
