Precautions
On installation
• Never use your Network Walkman where it
will be subjected to extremes of light,
temperature, moisture, or vibration.
• Never leave the Network Walkman
exposed to high temperature, such as in a
car parked in the sun or under direct
sunlight.
On heat build-up
Heat may build up in your Network Walkman
while charging if it was used for an extended
period of time.
On the headphones
Road Safety
Do not use headphones while driving,
cycling, or operating any motorized vehicle.
It may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in
many areas. It can also be potentially
dangerous to play your Network Walkman at
a high volume while walking, especially at
pedestrian crossings. You should exercise
extreme caution or discontinue use in
potentially hazardous situations.
Preventing hearing damage
Avoid using the headphones at a high
volume. Hearing experts advise against
continuous, loud and extended play. If you
experience a ringing in your ears, reduce the
volume or discontinue use.
Caring for others
Keep the volume at a moderate level. This
will allow you to hear outside sounds and to
be considerate to the people around you.
Warning
If there is lightning when you are using your
Network Walkman, take off the headphones
immediately.
50
On the use
• When using a strap, careful to avoid
hooking it on objects you pass by.
• Do not use the Network Walkman on an
aircraft.
On cleaning
• Clean your Network Walkman casing with
a soft cloth slightly moistened with water
or a mild detergent solution.
• Clean the headphone plug periodically.
Note
Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring
powder, or solvent such as alcohol or benzene as it
may mar the finish of the casing.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your Network Walkman, please
consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Glossary
MagicGate
Copyright protection technology that consists of authentication and encryption technology.
Authentication ensures that protected content is transferred only between compliant devices and
media, and that protected content is recorded and transferred in an encrypted format to prevent
unauthorized copying or playback.
Note
is terminology denoting the copyright protection system developed by Sony. It does not
guarantee conversion among other media.
OpenMG
Copyright protection technology that securely manages music content from the EMD/Audio CD
on a personal computer. Application software that is installed on the computer encrypts the
digital music content when recording on the hard drive. This allows you to enjoy music content
on the computer, but prevents unauthorized transmission of this content across a network (or
elsewhere). This PC copyright protection complies with “MagicGate”, and allows you to transfer
digital music content from a PC’s hard drive to a compliant device.
ATRAC3
ATRAC3, which stands for Adaptive Transform Acoustic Coding3, is audio compression
technology that satisfies the demand for high sound quality and high compression rates.
The ATRAC3 compression rate is approximately 10 times higher than that of the Audio CD,
resulting in an increased data capacity for the media.
ATRAC3plus
ATRAC3plus, which stands for Adaptive Transform Acoustic Coding3plus, is audio
compression technology that compresses data higher than ATRAC3. The ATRAC3plus is new
audio compression technology that enables equal or higher quality sound comparing to
ATRAC3.
Bit rate
Indicates the data amount per second. The rate is reflected in bps (bit per second).
64 kbps means 64,000 bits of information per second. If the bit rate is large, that means a large
amount of information is used to play music. Comparing music of the same format (e.g.,
ATRAC3plus), 64 kbps data offers better sound quality than 48 kbps data. However, audio files
in formats such as MP3 have different encoding methods, and thus sound quality cannot be
determined by simply comparing the bit rate.

MP3
MP3, which stands for MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3, is a format standard for music file compression. It
was codified by the Motion Picture Experts Group, a working group of ISO (International
Organization for Standardization).
It compresses audio CD data to approximately one tenth its original size. Because the MP3 encoding
algorithm has been made publicly available, there are various encoders and decoders that are
compliant with this standard.
