With improved wearing comfort, the WS623 Walkman features an ergonomic, slim and light design that stays in place no matter the movement. Newly equipped with Bluetooth Wireless Technology, you now have the option of streaming music from your smartphone using the convenient Near-field Communication (NFC) one-touch pairing, or simply store up to 16GB of audio within.
Love the sea? The WS623 Walkman is salt waterproof, allowing you to swim to a depth of 2 meters with up to 30 minutes of submerged time. Also dustproof, it can withstand small particles – making it perfect for any sand based activity or a run along the beach.
It also comes with standard earbuds and specially designed waterproof earbuds that are covered with a thin film to prevent water damage to the Walkman and optimise sound levels for underwater listening. Together with a temperature feature, the Walkman can endure extreme temperatures from -5°C to 45°C, making it ideal for a hike or climb.
Stay in touch with your surroundings by enabling Ambient Sound Mode, utilising nifty in-built microphones to pick up external voices and sounds in the surrounding environment – allowing you to communicate with your workout buddy or trainer without skipping a beat.
A quick charge feature gives a full 60 minutes of audio time with just a three-minute power-up, while a full charge will provide 12 hours of battery life.
