Ahhh Friday night and time to enjoy the weekend. Just one last event to attend for the week and that was Sony’s Wet Party featuring the launch of the new Sony Walkman NWZ-W273 at Mai Bar, Aloft KL Sentral.

There was a display of the evolution of the Sony Walkman from casette tape to CD to digital formats. This brought back memories as I had the old casette Walkman and the first generation Discman.

We were treated to a performance by Malaysian synchronized swimming team. I was most impressed! If you look carefully you’ll see that they are all wearing the Sony Walkman NWZ-W273 which is water-proof!

The synchronized swimmers were joined by the 2 male models and 2 mermaids (and yes all were wearing the Sony Walkman W273).

The NWZ-W273 device is designed with intuitive controls to easily adjust volume to play, pause, or change songs on-the-go. Equipped with a 4GB on-board memory (which is approximately 1000 songs), users can easily drag and drop DRM-free music files and playlists from iTunes® for Mac or PC, Windows® Media Player, or Windows Explorer.

While the NWZ-W273 player delivers up to eight hours of audio playback on a full charge, there is also the convenient quick-charge function for those of you who always forget to charge your devices. Charge a totally depleted battery for three (3) minutes and the device can provide music for up to 60 minutes.

Who would have thought 20 years ago that the Walkmans would be so small and waterproof?

When I think of Sony I always think of high quality audio and that’s because Sony has always been committed to extraordinary audio performance. The NWZ-W273 player continues that tradition with its crystal clear highs, deep bass and powerful sound typically found in Sony’s high-end headphones.

To fit the user’s ear properly, the player comes with a new tension band for a supportive fit while small, medium, and large earpieces are included to ensure an ideal fit for secure, long-term wearing comfort during running, cycling or even swimming.

“For many people, music is a vital component in their daily lifestyle. People listen to music when they are commuting to work or doing vigorous activities like a gym workout, cycling and running,” said Ivy Goh, General Manager, Brand Activation Management Division, Sony Malaysia. “The new NWZ-W273 not only lets you enjoy powerful music on the go, now you can even bring it to swim, which was something swimmers can only dream of until now.”
