I know what you’re thinking. What the heck is a premium sound memory card? At least, that’s what I was thinking when Sony first released details about their SR-64HXA premium sound memory card.


It would seem that Sony’s going all-in on the high-res audio front. Even going so far as to say that their business will evolve around high-resolution audio. At CES 2015, Sony announced their $1200 walkman, the NW-ZX2, which is geared towards high-end audio. To complement their new device, Sony’s offering the 64GB SR-64HXA memory card.


The card is expected to retail for about $160 state side when it hits store shelves in March. According to Sony, it will fit any device that has a microSD card slot. So, what exactly does this new card do? The SR-HXA card is designed to generate little to no electrical noise which should result in cleaner sounding audio.


While Sony’s unsure about how much demand there will be for either their hi-res memory card or walkman, one thing is certain. With it’s high price tag, it’s definitely geared towards audiophiles.
