Herald Sun - Switched On - - GADGETS & GAMES - EAR­BUDS FOR DRY LAND AND UN­DER­WA­TER

Sony is boost­ing its wa­ter­proof Walkman range with this model that is now able to cope with salt wa­ter. It comes with two types of ear­buds — one set for dry land and an­other for be­neath the waves. To use the Walkman, you must add mu­sic by con­nect­ing files to a com­puter and drag­ging it into the de­vice. We tested them do­ing laps of a pool and found loud mu­sic worked much bet­ter than an au­dio­book for lis­ten­ing over the splash of swim­ming strokes. You get a few odd looks but you could be the envy of ev­ery other per­son in the pool play­ing mind games as they go up and down that black line.
