outstanding so far

By AustinBadger

from Undisclosed

Comments about SONY 1038793 Sony Walkman Waterproof Sports MP3 Player:

This is an amazing all-in-one player. It's so nice to not have cords bouncing around and pulling on your ears while running. I gave 4 stars for performance because the buttons give little feedback when pressed, but this is to be expected with such a small design. Good sound, very comfortable.

Comments about SONY 1038793 Sony Walkman Waterproof 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!

Disappointing in many ways over previous model

By Skibug

from North Carolina

Comments about SONY 1038793 Sony Walkman Waterproof Sports MP3 Player:

I was hoping to use this in the pool. It turns out, much like many others, this device works for about 2 minutes in the pool, then sound goes out. Charging is a pain as well because you need the additional docking station, unlike the previous version. I also get some errors and have to reset the unit frequently when connecting to the USB port on my computer. Furthermore, the soft touch button to activate the unit is sort of an added step over the older version and make it a little more of a pain. To top it off, i think my activation button just broke so the unit wont turn on. Very disappointed with the newer version. It is not an improvement; more like a step back.

Walkman is back!

By DianaElizabeth

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about SONY 1038793 Sony Walkman Waterproof 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 1038793 Sony Walkman Waterproof 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 1038793 Sony Walkman Waterproof 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.

Awesome So Much Better Music Player

By Gab70

from Orlando, FL

Comments about SONY 1038793 Sony Walkman Waterproof Sports MP3 Player:

I just got my second music player for this series of Sony players. I loved the first one primarily because it has lasted me so long without ever breaking. The controls are all in the right places and its easy to control the player while running and adjust the music and charge the player when you aren't on the road. Also, the player lasts for over 20-30 miles before needing a recharge. Previous headphones and players including 4 shuffles, mp3 players, and countless headphones all broke due to tugging while running whereas this ear to ear thing really works! The system keeps the music playing despite many demanding runs. I didn't know quite what to expect in ordering the new model but I am extremely pleased after running 9 miles this morning. With the previous model, I had to adjust the earbuds, sticking them back in my ear every few miles despite twisting them in before teh run. Now the buds stay in without ever touching them. When connected to a PC, instead of having to search for a free mp4 to mp3 converter, the software that comes with this player automatically is able to read and play the music from Itunes. The model has a quick charge system which allows you to have more power than you need in only a few minutes should you ever forget to charge it. The quality is awesome and this model is even waterproof to a few meters, more than enough for a Triathlon. Rock on! See you out there!
