Summary: i purchased this specifically for running and jogging, but unfortunately even though the sound quality is good. The headphones come right off your ears as soon as you start excercising and sweat comes down on your ears. It is horrible cant get it to stay on my ears.
wait for the fully waterproof version for swimming March 2013
12 February 2013
Summary: Think twice about buying this version. In Europe Amazon already sells the fully waterproof version with which you can swim. We're told it will be released in the US in March 2013 as "Sony Walkman W273 4GB Waterproof"
Summary: Holds about 900 of my songs, but finding just one could take hours. The shuffle plays the same songs sometimes within a half hour or so. I guess it's supposed to be random, but when it happens more than a few times I tend to believe it's the player.
Summary: I got this because I wanted something that would stay in my ears while running and not have the cable going to my arm like my iphone or ipod. All the ads in runners world show the people running with them on but let me tell you they dont work. They will not stay in your ears for more than 50 yards.
Summary: I am a member of the Sony Walkman team and received this device to test out. I love my Sony Walkman player! It's light, easy to use and great for running outdoors and working out at the gym. The buttons are very user friendly and it is very simple to scroll through your songs.
