sonywalkmanIt is comforting to know that Sony did not throw away the Walkman name, never mind the fact that audio cassettes have been obsolete for the longest time already despite being the Walkman’s claim to fame all those years ago. Well, things have taken a digital slant these days, and here we are with word that the waterproof Sony Walkman NWZ-WS610 has just been announced.

There is something strangely therapeutic about listening to music whenever you sweat it out at the gym or in the great outdoors, as the right kind of music is able to help increase one’s level of motivation while distracting the mind so that the body will be able to concentrate fully. The Walkman NWZ-WS610 gets the job done in a no-frills manner, offering a comfortable, secure fit even when you are pounding the pavement.

Fret not if it rains, since the Walkman NWZ-WS610 is comfortable in such a situation thanks to its waterproof capabilities, not to mention cleverly-designed earbuds that offer a snug wear to deliver crisp sound – whether you are running or swimming. Not only that, the Walkman NWZ-WS610 holds the distinction of being a wearable Bluetooth headset as well, which offers you more options to enjoy your music whenever you are on the move. There is no word on pricing just yet for the Walkman NWZ-WS610, although it is tipped to arrive in Europe next month. [Press Release]
