Are you ready for a tech throwback? Sony has launched the Walkman Signature series in the Philippines, bringing the retro gadget with a modern twist to Filipino audiophiles.

There are two versions of the Walkman in the line: the Sony NW-WM1AM2 and the NW-WM1ZM2.

Both devices sport a 5-inch touchscreen and run on Android 11. They also have WiFi capabilities, support microSD cards, and give up to 40 hours of listening time. The Walkmans also come equipped with sound features including the S-Master HX digital amp technology for pure sound reproduction and 360 reality audio for immersive listening.

The cheaper of the two, the NW-WM1AM2, offers 128GB of internal storage and is available at P79,999.
