Your music, 3 ways

12 September 2013

Introducing the new 3-in-1 Walkman® WH Series from Sony with digital music player headphones and speakers in one stylish design

  • 3 different ways to listen, 1 stylish design
  • Listen out loud through built-in speakers
  • Go wire-free with a wearable digital music player
  • Play smartphone music on powerful headphones

    The 3-in-1 music revolution

In the park, on the streets or skateboarding with your mates: now you can play your music, your way. 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.

Overhead power

However you listen, get the audio quality you expect from Sony. The new Walkman® NWZ-WH505 and NWZ-WH303 ensure you hear every note of your MP3 tracks, thanks to powerful headphone drivers. Switch between sound modes for dynamic, enhanced bass, or clear, sustained mid-to-high range vocals – whatever suits your style of music*.

Play tracks out loud

When you want to switch the beat or listen outdoors and still hear what’s around you, simply hang your 3-in-1 Walkman® around your neck and activate the surround sound speakers at a touch. Pump out a truly immersive, out-loud listening experience created by a combination of our proprietary xLOUD™ and VPT for Speakers technologies.

The smart way to listen

You can keep the music playing all day long with a full charge of 20 hours and built-in storage of 16GB on the WH505 – that’s enough for up to 4,000 tracks.** Or plug in the WH Series as comfortable headphones and use the supplied cable to listen to music, radio or Internet streaming straight from your smartphone or tablet.

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.
