CES: Sony’s waterproof Walkman Sports MP3 Player makes happier swimmers

by Gareth Mankoo

Sony is taking music outside homes, into the deeps. With their cool waterproof Walkman Sports MP3 Player, swimmers will soon be able to take their audio entertainment into the deep. This cool player combines a pair of earbuds with an MP3 player in a single unit, without requiring an external device to play tunes. What appear as earbuds, house the entire player within them and can also be used for terrestrial workout practices. The waterproof nature also means that it is sweatproof. Other features of the player include a 4GB storage capacity, PC/Mac compatability, 8 hours playtime, quick charging, exceptional sound output (even underwater) and color options of blue, pink, white, and black.

The Sony Waterproof Walkman Sports MP3 Player will be released in march for $100. Ready to brave the Pacific now?
