The device, which was launched at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, has been re engineered for high-end audiophiles, and it is completely different from the previous low priced music player.

The smartphone generation might find buying new device a costly affair but Sony promises worthy experience to people who are looking for enhanced sound quality.

''The NW-ZX2 Walkman can reproduce master quality recordings just as the artists originally intended," the company said in a statement.

The battery is power packed and will last longer that will give users 60-hours for listening to MP3 music and 33-hours for high resolution playback.

It is not available for preorders and is expected to be out sometime in Spring 2015.
