Sony Walkman NW-WS413


The Sony NW-WS413 is a 4GB MP3 player built into a set of waterproof and dust-proof IP67/68 headphones. There's also the NW-WS414, which are identical but bump up the storage to 8GB. Both models form part of the Sony Walkman NW-WS410 series.

Although underwater sound quality isn't as good as dry; there are plenty of positives that make the Sony Walkman NW-WS413 a very versatile proposition.

Great sound


I've been using another brand of waterproof headphones whilst swimming for years but these are so much better. Having a range of sizes of ear buds means they stay in place whilst swimming and the sound is great. I'm really pleased with this product.

Wouldn’t be without it


I love this product. I put my audio books onto them and relax in my hot tub every weekend. They are my must have for holidays, lying out on the sun lounger and then going for a swim, absolutely perfect. Cannot recommend enough!
