Sony Walkman may become the best choice to enjoy common music files in MP3, M4A or WAV format after Apple discontinued iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle. However, similar to iPod Nano/Shuffle, Sony Walkman can't play Apple Music songs either. Things changed after September 2019. Sony released Walkman NW-ZX507 and NW-A100 Series with Andoird and Wi-Fi support which you can use to enjoy Apple Music. The other way to enjoy Apple Music songs on Sony Walkman, is to use Apple Music Converter to convert Apple Music songs to Walkman compatible MP3, M4A or WAV files. Such a way is much more convenient and flexible.

Way 1: Get Walkman NW-ZX507 or NW-A100 to Enjoy Apple Music Songs

Sony Walkman is one of most popular and best MP3 players to enjoy local and common music files in MP3, M4A or WAV. and it is also regarded as the best MP3 player in audio quality. Apple Music is one of the best streaming music services and so many people want to enjoy Apple Music songs on Sony Walkman. It's not strange that Sony Walkman can't play Apple Music songs, considering the fact that Apple's MP3 players including iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle can't play Apple Music songs either.

Things changed after September 2019. Sony released NW-ZX507 and NW-A100 Series which comes with Android 9.0 OS and Wi-Fi support. As Apple Music is available for Android devices and Apple Music app can be downloaded from Google Play, it's no doubt that you can buy a Walkman NW-ZX507 or NW-A100 to enjoy Apple Music songs if you have a subscription of Apple Music.

Sony Walkman NW-A100 Series

With Walkman NW-ZX507 or NW-A100 and Apple Music subscription, you can download Apple Music songs under Wi-Fi connection and enjoy the downloaded songs offline. However, Walkman NW-ZX507 or NW-A100 series are not smart phones, so you can't use mobile data to enjoy or download Apple Music songs outside.

Before the release of Walkman NW-ZX507 and NW-A100 series, the only way to enjoy Apple Music songs on Sony Walkman is to use Apple Music Converter to convert Apple Music M4P files to Walkman compatible MP3, M4A or WAV files.

A new Walkman NW-ZX507 costs $829.99 and a new Walkman NW-A100 costs $329.99. It's not cheap and the fee can be used to subscribe several years of Apple Music service. If you have an old Walkman model and you want to use it to enjoy Apple Music songs, will you spend $329.99 or $829.99 to get a new Walkman and leave the old Walkman unused in your drawer, or spend $49.95 to get a lifetime license of Apple Music Converter?
