Sony NWZ-B180 Walkman Delivers 20 Hours of Music Playback

Two months ago, Sony revealed its waterproof NWZ-W270S Walkman that lets you listen to music while you're swimming. Now, the Japanese electronics company is introducing its latest NWZ-B180 Walkman.

Boasting a long playback time of 20 hours*, the new digital music player comes in a seamless aluminum body, and allows you to transfer music from the PC to the Walkman using drag and drop gestures. With an built-in 4GB USB drive (that's approximately 890 songs*), audio experience is amplified with the BASS Boost feature that reproduces bass to deliver rich sounds.

In addition to the NWZ-B180, Sony is announcing the NWZ-B180/F variant for people who listen to the radio on the go. The player comes additionally preloaded with 30 preset FM radio channels within the range of 87.5 to 108.0MHz. Also equipped with 4GB of storage capacity and a 20-hour playback time, it inherits the quick charging function which its predecessor integrated, providing you with enough power for a 90-minute journey with a mere 3-minute charge (70 minutes for a full charge). It also has a life cycle of approximately 500 recharges.

Available in five colors, the NWZ-B180/F Walkman is priced at S$79 and will be available at all Sony stores and authorized dealers in Singapore from this Thursday, 17th April, onwards.
