When talking about MP3 player or portable music player, there are so many brands and manufactures you may be confused with which one to buy. However, if audio quality is what you concerned, probably Sony Walkman will be recommended to you because Sony Walkman is famous for its high-resolution support and excellent listening experience. It's not an exaggeration to say that many people have reached a consensus that in terms of audio quality, Sony Walkman is the best portable music player.
If you are an Amazon lover, you may have purchased some MP3 songs from Amazon. However, nowadays, Amazon Music is much more popular than Amazon digital music download because users can listen to millions of songs by paying a monthly or annual fee which costs much less than buying Amazon MP3 songs or albums. Here comes a question. If we are using Amazon Music app, can we play the songs on Sony Walkman?
The answer is it depends on your Walkman model. If we purchase MP3 songs from Amazon, it's no doubt that we can copy the songs to all Walkman models and enjoy on the go. If you are using Amazon Music service like Amazon Music Prime or Amazon Music Unlimited, only a few models of Walkman, like NW-WM1ZM2 and NW-WM1AM2, are running Android 11 and Amazon Music app can be installed. As to other models, most of them come with Walkman's custom OS which is not compatible with any streaming music services.
