Features

Picture of WS610 Walkman® WS Series

Waterproof design for swimming 

Take the plunge with your favourite tracks. This Walkman® is waterproof* down to 2 metres, so it can handle more than a few splashes. Store your workout playlists on the Walkman, and then listen while you swim or play water sports. *The NWZ-WS610 is not suitable for use in salt water. This model will operate when submerged in water down to depths of 2m for up to 30 minutes. The swimming earbuds must be used for the waterproof design to function correctly..

A Walkman with 16GB storage*

Before you hit the courts or the pool, preload your favourite tracks, albums, and workout playlists onto a built-in Walkman. With up to 16GB of built-in storage* – that’s enough space for up to 4000 MP3s – you’ll never be short of tunes, even when powering through the longest workout. * Storage capacity varies dependent on region.

Simply touch your NFC-enabled smartphone or other device* to the on-body N-mark and start your music. No NFC? No problem.

All-in-one design for wire-free workouts 

Get a Walkman that’s designed to move with you. An all-in-one design lets you focus on your workout, rather than a tangle of wires. This Walkman is built into a headset, with lots of easy and intuitive ways to stay in control. You can skip tracks and adjust the volume with the included remote control, use the SongPal app on your smartphone, or use the controls on the headset itself.

Easy transfers with a supplied dock 

Freshen up your workout mix. The Walkman utilises a drag and drop file transfer system, making it easier to add and remove tracks. Simply place the headset in the supplied USB dock, connect it to your PC or Mac, then begin dragging and dropping your favourite songs.

Switch between music and apps with SoundMix 

SoundMix seamlessly mixes your music and apps together, so you won’t have to interrupt your workout. Audio playback is automatically paused to deliver app alerts or read texts aloud before mixing your music straight back in – allowing you to stay on top of your workout while keeping up-to-date with all the latest news, messages, and more.

Standard and waterproof earbuds for versatile listening

Get the best sound for your workout with a choice of standard or waterproof earbuds. Standard earbuds give you a comfortable fit and balanced sound. Hitting the pool? Switch to the waterproof earbuds; a thin film covers each earbud, preventing water damage within the Walkman and optimising sound levels for underwater listening.

Take charge in the water with built-in controls 

When you’re in the pool racking up the laps, you can shuffle tracks, turn up the volume and easily switch between playlists with built-in controls in your Walkman headset.
