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.

I have used these for three swimming sessions and each time lost sound in the left ear while swimming. I am using the largest ear insert and still seem to have water entering my left ear. Once that happens there is no more sound until it seems they dry out. These would be great for working out etc. but just don't work for swimming. Perhaps if Sony comes out with larger ear inserts, they would work.

I love it!

By Reba

from Houston, TX

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

The only recommendation I would make is that it was a wee bit louder but other than that I have truly enjoyed this product. Just bought my second pair as a gift! I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys music and the outdoors and exercising!

Walkman is back!

By DianaElizabeth

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

Lightweight, easy to use, just click and drag the songs. Just make sure you pay attention to how you snap it in the dock to see a light. I didn't do it correctly and was very confused, but I always rush myself. Just 3 minutes to power for 1 hour, it's great. No more messy earbud cords in the way while working out. Really proud of Sony for making the Walkman so advanced over other MP3 players. I'm also tired of having my arm squeezed to carry my songs with me too. This solves it all!

Great but not perfect

By jmaf

from Chula Vista, CA

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

Its fairly wearable for most situations, i swim constantly every day and the design is great for that purpose and for running, the controls are fairly simple, although they could use some work why, its missing the radio FM , something of a trade mark for Walkman . the battery life is fine not impressive 8hrs, secondary ear phone on the way to the bud after a while it rubs against you inner ear and starts to bother you

Great for the gym

By MyRealName

from Hartford, CT

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

Great design (very nice looking) Okay Sound quality (didn't buy it for this) Great battery life Great Features/Option(button selection for such a small device) Awesome that I don't have to install bloated software Poor ear comfort. Can't wear longer than an hour and i am coming from Bose In Ear headphones. I have not yet tried this underwater. Overall ... above average for the gym. No hassling with wires but the ears buds need to change. I wish I had a chance to use them in the pool but no opportunities yet.

MAJOR inconvenience when you run out of battery...

By MeetJoeAsian

from Houston, TX

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

I loved the previous generation model....I bought everyone in my family one for Xmas as a stocking stuffer...great gift....great device...Then this came out....I got excited and got one right after it was released. I hesitated on writing an early review because indeed it was an improvement over the previous, I was skeptical with this huge charger/transferring dock use for this device. And I was right. I knew the day would come when I do not have that BIG-O (Yes, it's BIG and BULKY compared to what used to be) charger and I'd be S.O.L....and it happened about month after I got it. I leave mine in my gym bag, just like I did with my old one...with my old one, when I needed a charge, I'd plug it into my car adapter on the way to the gym and I'd be set by the time I got there....why? because the charger was UNIVERSAL. I was able to use my many USB cables, at work, at home, in my car, or even when I was at a friend's....now with this new one, unless if I lug the dock around, I am screwed....and no, I am not planning to buy multiple docks to have around everywhere I go...it just didn't make sense why Sony went this route...Oh, I thought of one, MONEY...

REGULAR SWUIMMER DISSAPOINTMENT!

By ado0001

from Mexico city

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

I was really excited to get my first underwater music device, i took them to the pool to start my regular training! the firts 3 laps performed great, dissapointment came later, when i did a lap. a minimal quantity of water came in between my ears ant the device, it killed the sound quality inmediatly! so y try to put shake it GENTLY as it says and try to rise the volume but my effort was in vane, i have used them 2 days a week from 1 month already, and only one time i could get it to fit my ears correcltly, the rest of the times just keep me with lots of flustration even if i change the size of the ends that come with the device, it always gets water on it and the sound is gone, sometimes i feel just like i want to trow them a side and keep my rutine... im not sure but i could say that generally they have lost sound power too....

Left ear issue

By HumanGenome

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

I have the same issue as mentioned by another reviewer. When swimming, I lose the sound from my left ear. It's consistent and happens every time I swim. Otherwise it works fine with other activities.

Finally! Swimming excuses no-more

By Onnan

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player:

I love this Walkman series. I had been waiting to get a good set of waterproof headphones for swimming but I wasn't sure of how it was going to work, until I learned about these babies. Easy to setup, just like a regular Walkman. Easy to start playing (just need to charge it). I tried them last night and they were terrific. You can still hear the water moving but the music sound is fantastic. You get distracted from getting tired and just continue to swim. It comes with different earbud sizes to make sure that you get a perfect fit (really necessary to avoid water getting in that area). Note: I'm a current Sony employee but this is just my personal opinion. I had nothing to do with the design or promotion of this item. I paid for my Walkman and I really do love them.
