I don’t know if your like me, but even when a product is labelled splash proof or even waterproof, I still get nervous when using said device around the wet stuff. Earlier this month Sony decided to push the waterproof label to the extreme and started to sell MP3 players which were packaged inside bottles of water!
The MP3 player, Sony’s NWZ-W273, has been around for a while already but this is the first time it has been packaged in this way. At the moment this type of packaging is only being sold in vending machines located in leisure centres and gyms across New Zealand.
The NWZ-W273 comes in 4GB or 8GB models and has a battery life of 8 hours. A quick charge function will give you an hours use for every three minutes of charge. Sony claim they are waterproof for up to 2m of water but shouldn’t be used in the sea.
But can you drink the water once you remove the headphones?
