Sony has unveiled a 3,300 euro ($3,680) gold-plated Walkman music player as the Japanese electronics giant focuses on higher end products in its audio division.
The latest players to use the iconic Walkman brand, which dates back to 1979, comes in two models - the WM1Z and WM1A. The WM1Z is the 3,300 euro model while the WM1A comes in at 1,200 euros. Both were shown off at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin on Thursday.
Sony has gold-plated a copper chassis on the WM1Z. The WM1A boasts an aluminium finish.
The devices can handle any music file from high-resolution sound to MP3 files. And Sony's devices can also upscale low-quality files.
