These padded, over-ear cans aren’t particularly memorable to look at, but it’s the all-in-one feature set that makes them so intriguing.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
Sony is selling them in two models, the 16GB NWZ-WH505 and 4GB NWZ-WH303 (rather uninspiring names, we agree). Both will last up to 20 hours on a single charge, although users can get an extra hour by plugging them in for a rather snappy three-minute period.
The premium version elevates the bass with a 40mm dome type headphone driver unit, while the NWZ-WH303 has a slightly less ambitious 30mm version. Audiophiles can shift their favorite tracks across from a Mac or Windows machine, and both models sport a small, illuminated LED Walkman logo for a stylistic flourish.
The WH303 and WH505 headphone-speaker-digital music player combos are priced at £99 and £179 respectively, and available from October.
