To say that the Sony Walkman NW-WS413 headphones are comfortable and a good fit would be an understatement. While they might look bulkier than your usual in-ears, they certainly don’t feel it. They’re light and well fitted so that whether you’re running or swimming they sit perfectly in place throughout.
The type of waterproofing is a factor, too.Sony has upgraded this generation to not only be waterproof but resilient in salt water for up to 2m for 30 minutes as well as being sand- and dust-proof. This means the Sony Walkman NW-WS413s should be able to remain on your ears pretty much anywhere you go.
The headphones come with various size of earbuds as well as different types. Some are open-ended for on land listening, while others feature a thin clear plastic seal membrane on the end to stop water getting into the speakers when swimming. While these muffle the sound a little, they do ensure clarity underwater. The issue will come when moving from swimming to running, where a switch in earbud type will help clarity. You’ll need to ask yourself if you are actually going to carry about spare buds for multi-discipline training.
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.
When the going gets tough, the NW-WS410 Sports Walkman is with you every step of the way. Built to withstand the elements, it’s the ultimate training partner.
