Hear the difference in High-Resolution
Listening to your tunes on the go doesn’t mean you have to compromise on audio quality. Hear your music just as the artists truly intended, through a combination of Sony’s proprietary sound technology and support for High-Resolution Audio, and experience the power of premium sound. The new Walkman® F886 lets you enjoy High-Resolution Audio, which offers significantly higher sound quality than a CD. In fact, a 192KHz/24bit High-Resolution Audio file contains around six times more audio information than that recorded on a standard CD – so it’s just like being at the studio or concert hall.
Savour every note
To further enhance your listening experience, the F886 is packed with unique audio technologies from Sony.
The latest S-Master HX digital amplifier reduces distortion and noise at all frequency ranges – from ground-shaking lows to delicate highs – and is optimised for High-Resolution Audio. *DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) HX technology faithfully restores high-range sound that is lost in the compression process for a pure, natural quality, and upscales compressed audio data to a quality higher than that of CDs. And Clear Audio+ ensures crisp, realistic sound, just as the artist intended. Enjoy your music in ultimate clarity and presence, across the entire spectrum of sound.
Enjoy one-touch listening via NFC
Want to play music from your Walkman® on your Hi-Fi, Home Cinema system, speakers, or headphones? With built-in NFC, all it takes is a single touch to pair and connect your F886 with a range of NFC-enabled devices. And if your devices aren’t NFC-enabled, just pair them using conventional Bluetooth®.
Listen more, play more, do more
Powered by Android™ 4.1, the F886 opens up a world of possibilities. Enjoy pre-installed apps tailored for your Walkman®, from email and games to maps and media gallery. Or connect wirelessly and download more apps from an ever-growing choice at Google Play™.
You can enjoy marathon music sessions too, with up to 35 hours of playback for MP3 tracks and up to 26 hours with High-Resolution Audio (96KHz/24bit). When you’re using headphones, digital Noise Cancelling blocks out around 98% of ambient noise with a choice of modes to suit your environment: Train/Bus, Plane, or Indoor.
Designed for everyday life
Whatever you’re using it for, the F886 is a joy to operate: it has a slim, compact design featuring three side-mounted buttons, meaning you can control the device even when it’s in your pocket, and a large 10.2cm LCD touchscreen. It even boasts a Triluminos display for mobile, which produces incredibly vivid, lifelike colours – perfect for videos, photos, and games.
