Sony launches waterproof, wire-free Walkman Sports MP3 Player

Sony launches waterproof, wire-free Walkman Sports MP3 Player
The iconic Sony Walkman, that spawned an entire category of products, lives on. Its latest avatar is the waterproof, wire-free Sports MP3 Player.

Sony lifted the wraps off the NWZ-W273 W Series Walkman Sports at CES in Las Vegas on Monday. It comes with 4GB of storage and delivers up to eight hours of audio playback on a full charge. It also offers a convenient quick-charge function. Even if the battery if fully depleted, with just three minutes of charge time, the device can provide music for up to 60 minutes.

The entire MP3 player is a pair of headphones joined by a tension band for a supportive fit and comes with small, medium, and large earpieces, making it ideal for secure, long-term wearing comfort during running, cycling or swimming.

The Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player will be available in March in blue, pink, white, and black at Sony online and with authorised retailers for about $99.99.
