Sony WS413 Walkman - First Look

February 11, 2016

CES 2016 saw the announcement of the Sony WS 413 (4GB) and WS 414 Walkman (8GB), sports earphones with inbuilt storage. Today, Sony is launching the WS413 variant in Singapore.

What's The Big Deal?

1. Salt-water / Dust-proof Design
This has an IPX65 / 68 rating and apparently, the WS413 can be used at temperatures of -5°C to 45°C. This translates to enjoying water sports like swimming and hanging out at the beach without worrying about the device.

2. Weight / Storage
The WS413 Walkman is just 32g, though these are not Bluetooth earbuds. However, consider this - you don't even need to bring an accompanying music device 'cos there's already 4GB of storage that gives 800 songs around your ears.

3. Ambient Sound Mode
The inbuilt microphones pick up sounds around you and allow you to stay in touch with the environment when needed. 

4. Waterproof Earbuds
Included are 8 pairs of earbuds - 4 waterproof earbuds and 4 normal earbuds in S / M / L / LL configurations. 

5. Playback Time
The Walkman delivers 12 hours of battery life on a 1.5 hour charge. Now get this - 1 hour of juice for a 3 minute charge.

This goes for SGD 149. 
This applies to the 4 colors - black / ivory / lime green / blue. 

They are available as of today (11 Feb) in Singapore at Sony Stores, Sony Centres and Sony authorised dealers.
