Electronics maker Sony unveiled an addition to its Walkman WH Series - the NWZ-WH505 3-in-1 headphone set. What makes this unit rather unique, is that it has a pair of headphones, Walkman and a speakers all built into the unit.
“The new Walkman WH Series brings you the best of Sony – speakers, headphones, and digital music player – in one innovative, wire-free design. Move to music without the tangle of cables. Create your own personal surround sound with a touch of the built-in speakers. Or simply chill out to the pure sound of high performance headphones,” the company said in a statement.
The unit comes in two different models, with the NWZ-WH505 featuring a 16GB music player, 40mm dome type headphone driver unit, and 40Ω impedance and a wide sound range of 5–25,000Hz in clarity.
The NWZ-WH303, which is a smaller unit, features a built-in 4GB music player, 30mm dome type headphone driver unit, and 30Ω impedance and a 30–20,000Hz sensitivity. Both units are available in black with an illuminated LED Walkman logo, while the WH303 also comes in white.
“The WH Series is a new concept for enjoying your music the way you want. It brings together years of audio and headphones expertise from Sony to offer you studio sound and comfortable listening wherever you go,” Sony added.
