After Apple discontinued iPod series, Sony Walkman may be the best choice to enjoy MP3/M4A/Wav music files. However, nowadays we often prefer streaming music services like Spotify. If you want to enjoy Spotify songs on a Sony Walkman, there are two ways. One way is to buy a new NW-ZX507 or A-100 series model with Android and Wi-Fi support released in September 2019. You can install Spotify app and download songs from Spotify Premium and enjoy offline. The other way is to use TuneMobie Spotify Music Converter to convert Spotify songs, albums and playlists to MP3, M4A or WAV for any Walkman models with your Spotify Free or Spotify Premium account.

Spotify Supported Sony Walkman Models: NW-ZX507 or A-100 Series

Sony Walkman is well-known as the best MP3 player for its excellent audio quality and high-res audio compatibility. If audio quality is what you are most concerned, then Sony Walkman will be absolutely the best choice. Different Sony Walkman models may support different features and audio formats, but MP3, M4A or WAV are supported by all Sony Walkman models.

However, the way we enjoy music has been changed a lot. Nowadays, streaming music services like Spotify or Apple Music is the dominant way of music playback. iPod Touch users can install Spotify or Apple Music from App Store, but what can Sony Walkman users do? Before 2019 September, Walkman users can only enjoy Spotify songs by using Spotify Music Converter to convert Spotify songs to MP3, M4A or WAV and transfer the output files to Walkman.

Luckily, things changed after 2019 September. Sony released ZX500 Walkman ZX Series and A100 Walkman A Series. Both series are equipped with Android 9.0 and supports Wi-Fi connection, you can go to Google Play to install Spotify app to stream music online. If you use Spotify Premium, you can also download songs for offline playback.

If you haven't got a Walkman, maybe you can get a Walkman NW-ZX507 for $829.99 or a Walkman A-100 for $349.99. But if you have an old Walkman model which doesn't support Spotify, are you willing to put it alone in your drawer and buy a new model with a big cost?
