Review: Sony Wireless Walkman NWZ-W273S

Portable music solutions like the iPod have attained immense popularity in the past decade, and Apple is the leader in this segment. It was Sony, however, that made one of the most popular and successful portable music players, the Walkman, and the company knows how to please its customers.

In a world where we prefer gadgets that are hassle-free and as simple as possible, the Sony Wireless Walkman NWZ-W273S takes minimalism to a new level and puts the MP3 player right in the headset. What you get is a sleek headphone which plays the music by itself and keeps your hands and pockets free.

Sony Wireless Walkman NWZ-W273S is a sleek music player that has just one wire. This wire connects the two earpieces, and wraps comfortably behind your neck and keeps out of the way while you run, jog, or just work at your desk. It is light, and at just 29 grams you can wear it for long duration with ease.

The earpieces fit into your ears, and a clip is provided that can keep it firmly in its place so you can exercise and move about vigorously without any worries. With 4 GB storage, you can have hours of music on the device and the ability to quickly charge the device, you will never be without all your favorite tracks.

In a hurry? Just plug in the Sony Wireless Walkman NWZ-W273S for a quick charge as you brush your teeth or get dressed for a jog, and just 3 minutes of charging will power the device for 60 minutes. The buttons are on the headphone itself, and allow you all the basic functionality that you would want from your music player.

Play, pause, skip or go back with ease. Sony makes it even easier for you to manage the controls by enabling a voice confirmation feature which tells you exactly what button you pressed. Charging it and storing your favorite tracks is super easy as well. Sony provides a docking station, which is compatible with both Windows and Mac systems.

The dock charges the devices and also connects the MP3 player to the computer. No need to use any apps as Sony has made sure that the MP3 player is detected by your computer as a plug and play USB device, much like a memory stick. So all you need to do is copy what you want.

The Sony Wireless Walkman NWZ-W273S is 100% waterproof. The company likes to brag that it is the only Walkman that has been granted this rating. So you can use it in the rain, or when you are doing intense workout which leads to a lot of sweating. Sony claims that Sony Wireless Walkman NWZ-W273S can also be used by swimmers, but you need the earbuds to fit in perfect for that to happen, else the sound gets subdued.

With three different sized earbuds provided, you will always get a great fit, and Sony Wireless Walkman NWZ-W273S has a fairly decent sound quality as well. For its price tag, it is certainly a pair of headphones worth considering.
