Enforcing its commitment to the Walkman brand, Sony has renamed its Discman line the CD Walkman.
The company also introduced a brand new technology, G-Protection Jog Proof, which it claims finally makes portable CD players skip free when the user is running or jogging. This integrated anti-shock system can withstand three shocks per second -- apparently the maximum received by a player while jogging.
The latest models to feature this technology, and the final offerings for the Walkman's 20th birthday, are the D-EJ915 and D-EJ815. Features of both include: MD Link, an optical digital output for connection to a MD recorder, and CD Text out capability.
The D-EJ815 -- dubbed the marathon model -- has up to 70 hours battery life, which Sony claims is the longest ever for a CD Walkman.
