If the player really can play flac and has a good DA converter, I think it is one of the best portable music players around.
I do use Shure SE425 and Stax RS-001 MK2 earphones (both in ear) I think the Sony NWZA17 would be a good match for both phones.
I use very expensive sound cards in my computer and only play Flac or real CD. Be aware not the amount of bits or the sample rate is important. The source used to make the digital recording decides how the result, coming out of you speakers (or earphones) can be.
My earphones can keep up with my electrostatic loudspeakers, so worth trying. If money is no issue the Shure SE535 would be great. Although more expensive than the Sony MWZA17. But once you have great earphones, they can be used for many years to come. The player will be replaced in at least 3 to 5 years

SOURCE: Low and bad quality sound by headphone port

sounds like an internal problem
like a bad connection
if you have the skill, you could pull it apart and resolder the parts around the earphone output jack
hope this helps!

Sony walkman nwze365 poor sound quality when plugged into home stereo or portable player


Maybe you are using the headphone jack on your Walkman to connect to your home stereo. Not good. I prefer a LINE OUT connector and for $130 you would expect to find one. My experience has been that some have it, some don't.

I have a Hohner amp that has sound coming from earphones when I plug them into the headphone jack, but there's no sound coming out of the speaker itself when the earphones are unplugged. How do I fix that?


the headphone socket acts as a switch for main audio and headphone line. either u have a defective socket or the power amp is defective. headphone line is driven by a preamp, which is working - if power amp is defective- headphone works but power amp fails. try changing the headphone socket first.

No sound coming out the headphones


Try the line out on the back of the unit and see if sound signal comes out there U must plug that into a preamp on your stereo the signal level is to low for the headphones to sound and if there is sound then u have a blown output amp in the headphones circuit!
