Sony boosts wearable line-up with launch of new WS413 Walkman

Sony WS413 Walkman 03

Sony has just released new additions to its Walkman wearable series, which include the WS413 Walkman, a tough, salt waterproof and dustproof set of wearable headphones meant for the outdoors and can be used in activities in a variety of conditions–such as swimming, surfing, or hiking on a mountain.

The WS413 Walkman is wire-free and fits snugly onto one’s head. Its round and seamless shape makes the fit comfortable and perfect for slipping over the ear, so you don’t need to worry about the Walkman slipping at a crucial time.

The WS413 wearable Walkman from Sony is now salt waterproof and dustproof so you can listen to your favorite songs whilst enjoying water sports such as kayaking or swimming. Its sleek design further eliminates drag interference so you are not restricted in any way. This has been enabled by the addition of an internal terminal which resists any accumulation of foreign particles and is highly corrosion-resist. A rustproof coating on the surface of the front case ensures that your 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.

But you don’t have to be into sports to enjoy the WS413 Walkman. The sand tolerance means it’s great for those beach days and exotic holidays. The unique sealed structure equalizes compression ratios, ensuring that your Walkman stays dustproof in a variety of environments. The supported temperature feature that has been extended means you can now use your Walkman to its full potential in temperatures from -5°C to 45°C.

You can also choose to remain conscious of the voices and noises around you, thanks to the new Ambient Sound mode. In-built microphones pick up ambient sounds around you, allowing you to stay in touch with your surrounding environment without having to remove the device or lower the volume. This means you can communicate with your jogging buddy or yoga instructor without having to pause your motivational music.

The WS413 Walkman (4GB PhP 4,999) will be available in Sony Centers nationwide on mid-March.
