A light and sweat proof walkman headset, perfect for a workout or your morning walks.

Sony has outed its latest Walkman headset, aimed to be lighter and better than previous models. The NWZ-W260 is the latest in the W Series, and so is ideal for getting outdoors with or taking to the gym. It’s wireless, rain- and sweat-proof, and is 25% lighter than its predecessor.

Transferring music to this Walkman headset will be a drag and drop affair, thanks to the supplied Content Transfer software; and ZAPPIN tech lets you browse your tunes to preview them. It comes in black or white, and a three minute charge gives it eight hours play time.

Do note that this walkman is “water resistant” and not “water proof” which means that as long as its sweat or little dribble, you will be fine but it is not meant for heavy shower usage. No price has been announced for this headset yet but Sony is aiming for releasing it this month.
