A new Sony Walkman comes with 60 hours of MP3 listening time, 33 hours of high resolution playback time, all on a single charge, and all for just $1,120. That's right, just $1,120.

The updated version of the Sony Walkman NW-ZX2 high-definition music player is making its debut at this week's 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, according to ABC News.

Ross Miller of The Verge said he there is plenty to like about the new Sony Walkman, if one is looking for pure listening experience.

"I love the texture of its matte black casing," Miller wrote. "I love the playback buttons carved into its curved side – in the little time I've had to hold the device, my fingers curled right onto the play, pause, and rewind. It's heavier than you'd initially expect, in a good way. It's solid. The distinctive gold-toned headphone jack juts wider than the frame and adjacent to the microSD slot (if you need more than the 128GB of built-in storage)."

Kate Lismore of Konbini.com wrote that the Walkman could fill a needed niche for music lovers with large libraries.

"One reason why the new Walkman remodel may prove to be a success is the untimely death of the iPod Classic, which Apple discontinued last year," Lismore wrote. "The largest iPod now only can hold a piddly 16GB, compared to the whopping 160 that the largest Classic used to hold. This could mean that music geeks will turn to more expensive portable music players like the Walkman NW-ZX2 so that they can fit their large libraries all on one device."
Still, some on social media appeared to balk at the price tag despite the Walkman's bells and whistles.
