Sony surprises continue with 3-in-1 Walkman WH headphones
Sony's recent run of interesting and unusual devices has continued with the launch of its new <a href="http://presscentre.sony.eu/content/detail.aspx?ReleaseID=9138&NewsAreaID=2 ">3-in-1 Walkman headphones</a>. The new headphones incorporate a discrete Walkman MP3 player, while the can also connect to an external device, or be used as surround sound speakers. There are two new models, the NWZ-WH505 and the NWZ-WH303, which differ in storage capacities, driver sizes and dynamic range.<br /><br />The top of the range WH505 includes a 16GB capacity, which is good for storing up to 4,000 songs. It supports a wide range of audio formats including MP3, WMA, AAC-LC and Linear PCM. The WH505 utilizes a 40mm dome type headphone driver and can reproduce a dynamic sound range of 5-25,000Hz. When used as surround sound speakers, Sony pumps up the volume using its xLoud and VPT technology, while it can last up to 20 hours on a charge. Looking to revitalize the Walkman brand image, the logo is also backlit with LED lights.<br />
<br />
The WH303 model has the same functionality, including file support, but reduces storage capacity to 4GB, or up to 1,000 songs. Its dome type drivers are 30mm, while it reproduces a narrower audio frequency response of 30-20,000Hz. It too can last up to 20 hours on a full charge and also includes the backlit logo. Both pairs of 3-in-1 headphones will work with Macs and PCs, while the WH303 also comes in white. Pricing and availability is still to be announced.<br />
