Product Design WM-F5 Walkman

  • Product Design WM-F5 Walkman

The first Walkman developed for use during outdoor activities. The WM-F5 marks the first appearance of the distinctive yellow seen in later Sports models. The case is made of highly impact-resistant ABS plastic, and all controls are protected by rubber seals to make them splashproof. Play, Stop, and other buttons are shaped and positioned for easy use, even without looking.
