This just dropped at CES
Thoughts?

>>52647425
too pricey
>>
>>52647425
>$1200

rip in peace
>>
>>52647425
>paying $1000 for an ipod
>doesnt even have clickwheel
>portable/music quality - pick one
>>
>>52647425
literally useless
>>
>>52647473
Strangely enough that's what most rational people thought about the ipod when it launched at around $400 or so when there were $50 alternatives.

I'd say most people on this website weren't old enough to remember that fact.
>>
What is this. I don't even
>>
>>52647425
1k nope
rest in pepperoni

>>52647554
It's the new Walkman. $1100 and it plays FLAC so you can show off your superior taste in digital music.
>>
You know you can just buy Z3 anyway with that money
>>
>>52647425
honestly though how hard is it to make an affordable mp3 player that plays high quality music its fucking 2015, cd players are obsolete, mp3 players have been around for too fucking long

But 400$ got you a clickywheel.

And you could spend the extra $700 you saved not buying a zx2 on coke and hookers.
>>
I'll buy a sansa clip and spend that other 800 bucks on vodka and muscle milk
>>
>>52647641
I used to own this. It's only fucking 128mb but it was rad.

Are they fucking cracked?

the 1% can go die

nice trip.

My note 3 already does that, is there any other reason for me to get this? does it do anything else?

The day I upgraded to this badboy was the happiest day of my life. 128mb to 30gb. Life-changing.
>>
I can't take Sony seriously.
>>
Why buy this when I can just use my phone?
>>
>>52647728
The most crazy thing is that Sony phones is already better and cheaper anyway. There's not reason to buy this.
>>
>>52647425
the device looks nice.
the interface looks like ass from this picture though. why so busy, is it a phone too or something?
>>
>>52647728
It runs Android 4.2 and has play/pause/volume buttons on the side of it. It also has a big gold colored input for your gold tipped beats headphones.
>>
sandisks sansa clip plays flac also, for A LOT less...

>$1.2k
>doesn't even have the latest version of Android

FiiO X1 is better

>>52647946
shhhhhhhh

>>52647995
how so?
>>
I kind of want to harass Sony's customer support letting them know that they accidentally had an extra digit when they announced the price. Do support teams respond to bait?
>>
Hi ZuneHD 2. Do you have a Micro SD slot yet?

Also Poweramp and android killed the PMP a while back. From a fan of the PMP, I'd say it was killed off by weight, poweramp, lossless support without transcoding and usb otg support.
Not that I wouldn't like a nice lightweight PMP with a good screen. I'd just rather have one that displays album art full screen with a good queue function.
>>
how many gigs?
>>
>>52650513

Haven't seen the internal memory revealed yet, can support microsd though, so it's probably like 8 internal and up to 128 via the card, which is fucking shit.

>these companies advertising "muh hires audio" without any fucking storage space

C'mon.. unless it's a terabyte i'm not interested.

>Haven't seen the internal memory revealed yet,
Are you fucking blind? Is google too complicated for you to use? Do you just like spreading disinformation.

128GB + MSD storage.
>>
>>52650584

I only saw the Verge article, why are you so upset fuckboy

128 still isn't enough for that pricetag
>>
>for the low price of just one thousand, one hundred and ninety nine US dollars

Fucking stupid, since Apple abandoned the Classic there's an untapped market of people who want a sizable portable music player without having to pay out the ass for something retarded like a Pono.

Sony, as usual, have no idea what they're doing. It's no surprise the company's running themselves into the ground when they keep on making stupid products like these
>>
>>52650896
plus it looks huge, I want something small and easy to carry around.
>>
Knowing Sony it'll take some stupid propitiatory memory card that costs half as much as the player
>>
>>52650914
this
Did you see Neil Young's MP3 player that was meant to be for music fans by music fans? Thing was a fucking toblerone, who the fuck can fit that in their pocket

no one..I started laughing when I saw the pic of it.

I'd be surprised if they sell more than ten.

Anyone know a decent mp3 player?
My classic's battery is on the way out
>>
>>52651078
sansa clip+ and a 128 gb micro sd.
>>
it does look very pretty, but that price is insanity.
stick with based cowon, thanks, m8
>>
>>52651193
I heard Cowon's quality was ass and their UI's were a nightmare
T/F?
>>
>>52647641
my nigga ;) i had one of these back in 7th grade and it only held up to 25 songs. i miss those days
>>
>>52650949
I can't even tell what order those songs are supposed to be in. Not alphabetical by artist, title, anything...
>>
>>52651284
ui is ass. build quality is middling, sound quality is goat.
>>
>>52651092

rockbox + FAT32 formatting is needed for 128 cards, but who would use stock firmware anyway.
>>
>>52647641
damn... sitting in science class listening to soad with one earbud while my mate had the other.
;_; such a great device.
>>
>>52647678
>thinking the original ipod came with a clickywheel
Who /3rdgen/ here?
>>
>>52650449
This.

Not to mention Apple idiot-proofing portable media on their touch devices. And like Steve Jobs said, the iTouch was just the worst iPhone they made. There's no room for standalone media players in the market when smartphones have the same functions, often with better gui/battery/versatility.
>>
>>52651343
Is this true for mobile as well?
Phone specs list mine as only being expandable up to 32, but would 128 work formatted to FAT32?
Obvi I don't have any > 4 gig tracks I want to transfer and don't keep any movies on my phone.

i rocked this thing for years until i was vacuuming my room one day and the headphone wire got caught and it fucked up the headphone jack. i then got a toshiba gigabeat, that died or something, then a zune 1st gen, then 2nd gen, the finally replaced with a iphone 4s in 2012. that shit is still working/long charge without any problems. i never even used a case for it.
>>

>people who called the iPod touch the Itouch.

why
>>
>>52647425
They should make the whole glass part the screen and do away with those dumbass logos and extraneous buttons. Didn't apple man teach you fuckers anything?
>>
For the same Money id rather just get a 64GB 5s and a bomber

someone made a 1974 record player pocket sized?

Wait who would spend $1000+ on an mp3 player when you can just get a smartphone?
>muh FLAC
Why do you need portable lossless sound? If you're walking around to work or whatever I'd focus more on not dying because you were too immersed in your music.
>>
>>52650896
ive used sony minidisc to record bands for ages.
before i ipod'd, id put cds on the disks.
sony is awesome, the people that want it will have a great time probably.
>>
>>52647777
leave no quads unchecked
>>
>>52651945
watch out faggot mods will ban you for having a sense of humor.
>>
Sony really wants to go bankrupt apparently
>>
>>52651858
nah always was inferior to similar priced ipods
>>
>>52651913
Yeah the whole 12 people who want it. Sony occasionally do put out good products but the company as a whole is plagued by fucking awful decisions. Their TV, laptop, camera and phone divisions all are bleeding cash like crazy to the point where they have completely axed some of them. Hell, even one of their only profitable divsions, the gaming one, took years to actually turn a profit after the abysmal PS3 launch and even with the PS4 selling well the company is still facing bankruptcy.

It's not an opinon that Sony are stupid and can't manage their business, it's an objective fact, the company is recording massive losses every single year and yet feel the need to waste money on this stupid fucking player that next to no one will actually buy
>>
>$1200
>128 GB
what the fuck? for that price i figured they managed to get at least half a terabyte into that shit
>>
For $1200 there should be at least 500 GB of space in that thing. That price for 128 gigs is fucking disgusting.
>>
>$1200

full kek
>>
>same capacity as a mobile phone
>twice the cost with half the functionality

If I wanted decent quality, I'd invest in a DAC and listen to shit off foobar in a quiet room.
It's fucking stupid to make a media player like this when you're going to be using the fucking thing in public areas filled with noise pollution
>>
>>52651337
don't bother. phono plebs made a playlist
>>
Fk sony. Do people still buy sony product? Last sony product I bought was a stereo deck mp3 player. I remember I have to buy a fkn 50 dollar for a 10 pack cd-r to play my mp3. Generic blank disc cost $10 dollar for 50 pack won't even play on sony deck. Not to mention their expensive memory cards.
