Summary: I really, really wanted to like these, but I went through 2 that failed the same way. The left ear speaker just died, and it was oddly unnerving to use it with a ton of input in one ear and silence in the other. They did work while swimming, not perfect, but once you got the hang of them they were nice. They seemed to have one side die 3 weeks in each time, but until then I loved it.

Summary: This product is great. Most bad reviews here are from people that did not follow the instructions that come with the device. And you can tell that Sony has made an effort to make sure that the instructions come through. It comes written, with pictures and they even give you a link to a youtube video that thoroughly explains how to use the device properly.
Summary: Died after 7 months. Worked great up until a week to it completely going out on me. It fits directly into your ear and locks out all environmental sounds. I only used it during my outdoor runs and gym workouts. In case it helps you understand the amount of use I got out of it; my runs last about 30 minutes, my weight training about an hour and I do that daily 4 to 5x per week. I don't expect my music equipment to last forever but definitely more than 7 months.
Summary: I bought this player in May for my fiance because she wanted to listen music while running. It was a very good and the sound exceeded our expectations. Sadly, the player stop working suddenly after a couple of months. There is no way to make it working again. A waste of money upon a trusted brand.
