Sony has unveiled five new Walkman portable digital music players

Three new NW-S700F oblong-shaped players, which have in-ear noise reduction earphones to block outside sounds, will go on sale from October 21, followed by two new NW-S600 series models on November 18.

Sony also announced the three new additions to its NetJuke range which allows users to download music to a hi-fi system and save it on a hard drive.

The new Walkmans will allow users to listen to about three hours of music on a three minute charge, and up to 50 hours on a two hour charge.

Sony has increasingly tried to repackage the Walkman, last year for example targeting a younger crowd with a Walkman that looks like jelly beans.

Sony's first Walkman tape cassette players in 1979 revolutionized the way the world listened to music at the start of the music-video era

Sony announced in January that the Walkman would no longer be made in Japan, shifting production to China and Malaysia.

The NW-S700F models will come in four colours with prices starting at 82 GBP (151 dollars) while the NW-S600 offers a choice of three colours with a price tag of 67 GBP (125 dollars) and upward.
