Sony has revealed its new wearable WS413 Walkman earphones, with a new tough, salt water and dustproof design that allows the wearer to enjoy more activities in a wider variety of conditions.
The new Walkman can accompany the wearer on a morning swim in the pool, an evening jog along the beach, or a hike up a snowy mountain. Its wire-free round and seamless shape makes the fit comfortable and perfect for slipping securely over the ear.
The WS413 wearable Walkman from Sony is now salt waterproof and dustproof, so wearers can listen to their favourite songs while enjoying water sports such as kayaking or swimming. Its sleek design further eliminates drag interference, and has been enabled by the addition of an internal terminal that resists any accumulation of foreign particles and is highly corrosion-resist. A rustproof coating on the surface of the front case ensures that the Walkman is protected both inside and out.
The WS413 Walkman comes equipped with both everyday earbuds and specially designed waterproof earbuds that are covered with a thin film to form a barrier against water getting through without compromising comfort.
Its new Ambient Sound mode utilises in-built microphones to pick up ambient sounds around the listener, allowing him or her to stay in touch with their surrounding environment without having to remove the device or lower the volume.
The WS413 Walkman will be available in the UAE from April 2016, priced at Dhs329.
