As January 8,2017 marked the end of CES 2017 , the Japanese giant SONY has come out with flaring colors. We are talking about the all new NW-A35 that come in a range of colors like blue, red, black, yellow and pink or the way SONY calls it Viridian, Cinnabar, Charcoal, Lime Yellow, and Bordeaux Pink. 

This series are inspired by simplicity of the current Walkmans by SONY the NW-A30 Series, But this time with a "focus on fashion and individuality". With clean lines and a simple shape, it's designed to become part of your personal style. 

Talking about other features, NW-A35 weighs just 98g. On the front is a 3.1-inch touchscreen and also promises a battery life of 45 hours, when used with MP3 files, or 30 hours when playing hi-res audio. It takes approximately 4 hours of charging time over a USB port and may not necessarily support fast charging.

Connectivity options include a 3.5mm stereo mini jack, Bluetooth 4.2, and NFC (Near Field Connectivity) with one touch connectivity, so you can easily connect to wireless headphones. It also supports all manner of high-resolution audio formats, including DSD. The NW-A35 uses sound enhancement features like DSEE-HX and ClearAudio+, which work with the Walkman's S-Master HX digital amplifier.

Smartphones, and the likes of Spotify were blamed for marking the end of the eras of  iPods, but that hasn't deterred Sony from looking for life in the MP3 market. And now, with the launch of NW-A35 series they are sure to add all the pep colors with all the pep technologies in your pockets!

The prices aren't listed yet but are expected to be around £180 and are expected to reach the European markets in February. The news on when it will hit india is yet unknown but we are sure to keep you updated!

We here at Headphone Zone are as eager to have them on board as you. Until then checkout the older version of the NW-A35 series for price and listings. You may check-out our other updates from the CES 2017
