Sony's Impermeable NWZ-W270S Walkman Delivers Music While You Do Your Laps
Following last year's launch of the wireless NWZ-W270 Walkman Sports MP3 Player, Sony has revealed the new NWZ-W270S all-in-one digital music player that not only lets you enjoy music while working out, but also while in the pool doing laps.
Sporting the same compact design, the successor comes with both standard-type earbuds, and swimming earbuds that help to increase water resistance, so you'll get to listen to music more comfortably while underwater. On a full charge of 90 minutes, the NWZ-W270S player is capable of delivering up to eight hours of audio playback. Its quick-charge function (just 3 minutes) offers music playback for up to 60 minutes, even if the battery was fully depleted.
