I understand that the main feature of this headset is to use it while active swimming or running or any other sport, but if I spend close to $100 on a pair of headset I would also love to link it with my smartphone and play the music I have with me all the time while on the road. In addition I could have my phone in my bag while lounging or calm swimming and listening to spotify or pandora. Such an easy add to these and am still not sure why Sony decided not to do that. Keep me posted once the next generation comes out.

Just bought these and used them for a few workouts. They fit well and the music quality is good. They stay in place well and don't need re-adjusting while working out. The one issue is the software interface. Would have given it 4 stars if it was even close to what Apple and others have developed for User Interface. No GUI, no charge meter, no "available space meter", just an old-school folder system like a Windows(TM) PC. Nothing intuitive like Apple. I expect a better interface since that technology is pretty easy with today's software. For $100, Sony should have written a GUI for these. Would have give 4 (for sure) or maybe 5 if they did that.

Poor design

By Karolina

from 22101

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

I have not been able to turn the Sony Sports MP3 Player on. A friend got it to play one time by chance. An on/off button, and not a pressure point, would work much better. I cannot tell if it is charged or not. I swim virtually every day, and this purchase has been a big disappointment ! I usually really like Sony products.

Bad experience

By Schiller

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

Before I had this model I had the previous one which is the one without the S at the end. The first broken after almost 1 year of use, one of the headsets stopped working and the warranty said that they could not fix it so I received my money back, also had a lot more problems with it during this period. Then I got the new model which is this one. I already have this one for almost 6 months and starting to have issues with it, like: battery is not charging and I have a feeling that in the near future it will break too. I was using it for running and also for gym workouts, rarely for swimming.

much better MP3 than any other

By whatsthepointofanickname

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

Way better than any other Mp3 player Ive used or heard of. simply having no wire going from headphone to mp3 player makes all the difference. As far as I can see, I dont know why anyone would buy any other MP3 or Ipod.

very difficult to stay on ears

By pr1ncekareem1

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

music sound is great but the lack of being able to firmly tighten/and or lock around your ear makes it difficult to have a high intensity workout that involves a lot of running and jumping. would be super if it was a sport clip design for the headphones

Love these headphones (while they work)

By skllkly68

from 19147

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

I'm on my third pair of Sony mp3 waterproof walkmans. Headphones perform great at the gym- no wires to compromise your workout, and a cool novelty to swim with (freshwater only) as well. However, my first pair started acting up after about 6 months of near daily use. The volume would slowly decrease as it was playing to the point of being mute. Pressing the volume up button would only temporarily resolve this. My second pair worked fine until they were smashed in a biking accident w a minivan, and my current (third) pair, about 7 months old, are starting to do same thing as first pair. I've tried resetting them, but yo no avail. If they were cheaper, or if they lasted longer, I would give them a 10 out of 10.

Do not last

By PlutoSaturnJim

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

I am on my third player. When it works it is a great product. This last player lost sound in the left ear shortly came back and now the switch does not work. Had this one around 9 months. The other two lasted a little longer. It is too bad because I like the product because it does not require any wires.
