Hey technophiles! This week we’ve got a hot new update for you from the world of music electronics. Audio scientists have been hard at work cooking up new ways of listening to music in high definition, and this week at the Consumer Electronics Show, the world got its first look at the Sony Walkman ZX2, heir to the Sony Walkman ZX1, itself heir to the entire Sony Walkman legacy. The reviews have been pouring in, and all of them agree on one thing: The Sony Walkman ZX2 is a portable music player that will retail for $1,119.99. That may sound like a hefty price tag, but the Sony Walkman ZX2 is loaded with features! Read on to find out more about them in Noisey’s exclusive preview:

– You can pick it up or put it down. Whatever you like. Completely customizable.

– It has Wi-Fi to access the internet. (The internet has music on it.)

– It isn’t limited to one genre of music. If you have multiple favorite types of music, you can play every single kind. (Rap and country too.)

– We haven’t tried, but you can probably listen to jazz on it.

– If there’s a band you like, you can listen to their albums with it.
