Sony just announced the waterproof, wearable Walkman NWZ-WS613 Bluetooth stereo headset that doubles as a MP3 player. You can listen to music stored in device memory (4GB), or stream sound wirelessly from Internet services like Music Unlimited, Spotify, and YouTube via your smartphone. No need to miss any notifications from your fitness apps or any other notices from your smartphone while you are exercising, the SoundMix function cleverly blends music listening with the audio from your smartphone’s apps.
The Walkman NWZ-WS613 is designed for a comfortable, wrap around, secure fit while pounding the track or the streets – with no wires to slow you down. Cleverly-designed earbuds offer snug wear and crisp sound during that morning pool session or post-workout shower.
Sports lovers can energize with the perfect soundtrack as they run, bench-press or swim with the new Walkman WS613 with Bluetooth. Its handy ring-type remote commander controls music playback and lets users accept calls while on the move. The low-power wireless technology of this user-friendly remote commander enables extended use without ever having to worry about charging the battery.
The Walkman WS613 includes the SongPal app functionality, allowing easy and intuitive control of compatible Sony audio devices. It can even access, select and playback the music files stored on the mobile device. Simply install the app on a mobile phone and take control of music playback, including device settings and more – all through one app. With built-in AAC and apt-X codec support, users will benefit from maximized signal quality when streaming music wirelessly.
