Powerful Product From SONY!!!!

First of all thanks a ton to Sony for making this astounding product and also thanks a ton to Headphonezone to make it available in your site and also for prompt shipping and delivery..keep up the great service!!!...now about the product..I have no enough words to actually describe about this bliss..was using Creative Zen X-Fi2 mp3 player for 10 years and thought the limit of audio quality is only much, but, let me tell you after i listened from this awesome baby alongwith using the 1MORE TRIPLE DRIVER EARPHONES *(yeah, the combination of Sony NW-A55 player and 1More Triple Driver earphone is absolutely THE PERFECT COMBINATION for the BEST sound output for your ears)*, I just blew away by the quality OMG PURE BLISS i tell you..just try this combo you will not regret at all..and both are a bit costly but if you dont mind spending few extra bucks for THE BEST SOUND QUALITY then its worth it..and once again, thank you Sony and Headphonezone for NW-A55!!!!!!!!

Very Good for flac and wma format songs

Only thing that's bother u don't get cover for it easily
Otherwise its a good product for music lover

Good not excellent

Battery doesn't last the way it's proclaimed and I can feel unit gets warm on prolonged usage.
Internal Sony says 16gb. The file software is less then 200mb and available GB is less then 13gb.
No accessories. Like case nor screen guard.
Cable is not easy to source .
Bad experience buying this product and my review is in the 8th day usage.
Build is not great. Just makes the unit heavier then the A45.
Didn't notice much or little difference in sound quality between A45.
Is the upgrade worth it NO
If given a chance I would like to return it.
3 stars for music. Typical Sony ecosystem. Very cute looks.

Walkman.. the Grandfather of portable audio

I am writing this review after using it for about 10 days, i must say it live upto the name..
I am primarily a guy who luvs music. I am not an audiophile nor i own multiple DAPs. I mostly used my phone to listen to music but i wanted a more convenient way to listen to music. I purchased Sony NWA55 along with a Tin hifi t2 IEMs. So my review will be from the point of view of a normal music lover.
Looks and Build = 10/10
Looks amazing and build is solid.
Interface 8/10 it is fluid. It is smooth so far, no lags. But the UI is not perfect but really close in my experience.
Sound 10/10 i don't have much experience in DAPs but i know this one sounds better that my phone. I plug it with my Tin Audio T2 IEMs n they sound really nice. There are various equaliser options for tweaking the sound n the results r quite good. The clear audio+ option is great. I will probably upgrade the IEMs in future but so far the sound is great. I haven't compared this with high end IEMs but i quite enjoy the sound signature with my Tin hifi t2.
Battery- 8/10..it is quite confusing as i haven't had a 30-40 hrs backup. I don't knw the reson for that. Maybe because i only have FLAC files in the device but i m not sure. I wish Sony had provided a power adapter with this device as the power ratings r not mentioned and i have a bad experience in that regard. So far i m using my laptop to charge it.
Memory .. 8/10 i just hope they had added about 64gb rom coz u just can add about 200-300 audio files ( it quite less in my opinion) but in the plus side there is a sdcard slot.
Other features i used this as a DAC and it sounds great
I was very confused before my purchase i had made a list i had Fiio m3k, Shanling m0, Shanling m2x, fiio M5, Fiio M6 etc but i selected this one. I saw like a thousand reviews for DAPs and most of them highly rated this one. I don't have the budget to buy all of them but i m quite convinced that i made a good choice. I m enjoying my music and not using my phone for it.

Excellent. works fine

Headphone zone just rocks
