There are no shortage of headphones available today, however the latest model from Sony has many people already talking. The new Walkman WH series headphones feature a music player and speakers to entertain other people close by.
The NWZ WH505 and NWZ WH303 each feature a built in digital music player with storage and an integrated lithium ion battery which is said to support up to 20 hours of playback before a recharge. They also feature stereo ‘surround sound’ speakers and dynamic dome type headphone drivers. Both of them also have LED Walkman logos.
The NWZ WH505 has large 40mm headphone drivers with a range between 5hz and 25khz, 105 dB/mW sensitivity and 40ohm impedance. Attached to the digital player device is 16GB of Solid State Storage which can support MP3, WMA, AAC-LC and Linear PCM format files via USB.
The NWZ WH303 has 4GB of storage and 30mm headphone drivers with a frequency response of 30hz to 20 khz and 107 db/mW sensitivity and a 30 ohm impedance. Battery life is the same as the more expensive WH505 model.
Both sets of headphones can be paired up with a smartphone, tablet or music player via a supplied audio cable. No indications yet of when the headphones will be available, or the cost.
