Sony NW-ZX2 High-Resolution Audio Walkman

Sony's NW-ZX2 High-Resolution Audio Walkman is an audiophile's dream come true. As its name suggests, it is quite at home with high-resolution audio files, providing better fidelity than MP3 or CD audio.

It supports digital audio files of up to 192kHz/24-bit in a variety of formats, including DSD and Flac, and has a large built-in memory of 128GB, which can be further expanded via a micro-SD card slot.


Puma evoPower 1.2 FG


Worn by the likes of Chelsea midfield maestro Cesc Fabregas and Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, the new Puma evoPower 1.2 FG is inspired by barefoot kicking.

The boots feature Gradual Stability Frame outsole technology that allows the foot to bend with a kinetic motion as if the player is barefoot, for increased power.

The uppers use Puma's Adapt-lite, a soft lightweight microfibre material that stretches longitudinally but not laterally, allowing freedom of movement while maintaining support.

Along with its two 40mm high-definition drivers, the M2L delivers a cleaner, more natural audio output with a wider dynamic range.
