Mod/Hack your Sony NWA 1000 / 3000

You may find the volume restrictions on your shiny new sexy NWA 1000 / 3000 a bit restrictive. In a loud environment, i.e a train or outside, the volume isn't quite loud enough.
Thankfully, Sony understand not everyone wants to conform with EU regulations. So there is a simple modification which unlocks those extra decibels.


Heres how to do it. Firstly, you need to enter your NWA1000/3000 into test mode.

Then, alter the setting accordingly.

Now you will find your volume goes much, much higher. Also, avoid using the Equaliser if possible as the Equaliser lowers the volume significantly.

Good luck, and happy listening. Remember, always operate at a safe volume. Do not operate your Walkman at maximum volume if you have performed this modification.

Any one got a reply?

I was wondering if you guys could put this as an article. It has nearly 600 hits without being one, so if it was made an article could do very well?

May I add it's also the first lisiting in Google when you search Sony NWA1000 Mod, or 4th when searching Sony NWA1000 Volume.

It is a Hard Drive MP3 player. It's a tad dated now, but mine is still nice and works well!

Examples of these other options are: POWER, AUDIO, etc. and the other options. I was wondering if it would be safe to touch these

Have you asked yourself why those restrictions are in place?
Have you asked Sony why THEY didn't give you more volume to begin with?
Have you calulated your hearing loss?

Clever monkey, foolish monkey, sad monkey...

tbh the restrictions are stupid. Every one of these low power players still sounds loud as hell on tinny little cheapo earbuds, but high impedence headphones like the ones I use get nothing out of them.

My HD595s on a PSP or an iPod sound like someone whispering from a room or two away even at max volume due to those same restrictions.

Fact is they don't restrict volume at all, they restrict output power, which is idiotic. Volume has almost nothing to do with the player and everything to do with the type of headphones you are using.

OK I'll back off, just want you all to be able to hear at 50 as much of what your hearing now as possible.

Bear in mind that there are 2 factors which will kill your hearing - the volume, and the length of time you listen to it.
