Sony Boosts Wearable Line-Up with Launch of New WS413 Walkman®

  • All-in-one design delivers quality sound anytime, anywhere with easy connectivity and an improved sleek, wearable fit
  • New salt water / dustproof design for use with increased range of sports
  • Introducing ‘Ambient Sound’ mode for enhanced user experience

(SINGAPORE, 11 February 2016) – Take your music to new places with the brand new wearable WS413 Walkman®. A new, tough, salt water and dustproof design allows you to enjoy more activities in a wider variety of conditions; it can accompany you on your morning swim in the pool, your evening jog along the beach or your yearly hike up a snowy mountain.

Listening to music whilst exercising is a true motivator, so why not make it easier than ever? A wire-free 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[1] so you can listen to your favourite 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[2], 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 equalises 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® will be available in at all Sony Stores, Sony Centres and selected Sony authorised dealers from February 2016 onwards, at a recommended retail price of $149.
