Summary: In the past trying to exercise with your MP3 player could be a little difficult for a number of reasons. Perspiration and water could get in and damage the player, the shaking that occurs from exercising occasionally made your player skip, not to mention the player's weight was too heavy to use without it affecting your performance.
I will not compliment this product. There are devices are better and more c

Summary: This device is not convenient to use without a special strap to the arm. The program for work with this product is awful! Although the sound is very good and loud! Battery and design is all charm. I do not advise anyone.
Summary: I bought Sony Sports Walkman Cassette players because they were durable and could take the abuse at the GYM. When everything went MP3 I tried a few other models and went back to the Sony and bought the 2 Gig version of the NW-203F and it lasted for about FOUR years. I use it in the gym, Aqua Jog (and constantly get wet), Sweat, dropped weights on it (accidentally), Walked outside in the Fog and the Drizzle and have even stepped on it a few times.
Summary: My Favorite Sony MP3. It came with and armband and sport style headphones. Very good buy. Controls are easy to use and when not using the armband for the gym or running it slips right into your pocket and no one would notice. Very sleek and ergonomic.
Summary: I bought this to use in the gym. I was pleased with the sound quality. I found the sound quality not as good as my iriver but better than my ipod. This has a great little feature that changes the play list to slower or faster paced music depending on your pace. The music change sometimes gave me a little push to continue my workout if for some reason I had wimped out early. You could also change music by giving it a shake.
Summary: I only wish I could subtract 5 starts off of it. The player's interface is the most horrific, clumsy, and outright annoying!! The mandatory Sonic software to transfer and organize music has been amply and neagtively addressed before by many reviewers, but I will still say what a messy, incomprehensible, sluggish, bulky, and overall unpleasant piece of software it is!! There was some freeware floating around to replace it. I tried but it is quite buggy to begin with.
Summary: I have owned 3 ipods none of which worked as well as this little unit and if this lasts like my other Sony gear it will not end up as a broken piece of junk in a drawer like my overrated ipod's have .
Summary: Its beautiful and the toughest walkman ever used. Its much better then the new model. Used and jog in rains for 3 months without any problem. only drawback is it has less memory.. Shailesh Sheth.
