This is the second sports Walkman I bought from Amazon. The device works great. It holds about 400 songs. I use it 6 times a week when swimming laps. However, The first one lasted about four and a half months and then battery stopped charging. I returned it to Sony for warranty service and got nothing but a run around. After about two months of dealing without success with Sony, I contacted Amazon who gave me a refund. I bought a second set of headphones. Again, almost daily use for lap swimming. In about 4 months the battery on the second Walkman died. This time Sony replaced it within a week.
It’s a shame that Sony puts out a product that has a poor battery. The headphones, when they work, are great. The problem is that the battery, at least in my experience, isn’t so great.
I decided that I needed some music when lap swimming and finally decided to get these Sony earphones. I popped on the special waterproof earbuds and special elastic to secure the earphones in place and went to the pool. Within two laps I had to adjust the earphones cause they were slipping out of my ear. By the third lap, they popped out of one ear which was ultra annoying. I decided to place my goggle straps over the sides of the earphones and halfway down the lane, the earphones slid into a weird place in my ears that blocked the sound from both sides. These earphones are useless. DON'T BUY THEM FOR SWIMMING! If you're looking for a good pair of wireless earphones for working out get a pair of bose wireless earphones; they're around the same price but BOSE HAS MUCH BETTER SOUND QUALITY!
I love the design of this product and the sound is great, but there is now way I would ever get 12 hours of battery life. The most I have had had been 3 hours. I use this for my swim workouts 3 times a week for 35 minutes per session and I usually have to recharge it before I use it again(: so not even 2 hours.
He sido muy cuidadoso de los audífonos y han empezado a fallar, no sé cuánto tiempo tenga de garantía, pero los he limpiado y usado como se recomienda; sin embargo, empezó a apagarse, luego a no funcionar el botón del modo de reproducción (repetir, shuffle, etc.), luego empezó a repetirse la canción, sin poder avanzarla, después a saltarse las canciones, en fin de plano hoy ya los daré de baja, pero no es posible que no dure ni un solo año!!!
I brought this mp3 player back in july. Used it once, dried it off and kept it in a dry place. Went to use it yesterday and it wouldnt turn on. I tried to charge it and it wont charge or turn on. I'm really upset the product only lasted one use before breaking
The product came without the case that is shown, which I really wanted instead of throwing the headset loosely in a gym bag, and it wrecks the enjoyment of transporting the headset. Will update after using if necessary.
It is a P.O.S. not worth it. Didn't last 3 weeks when lost all sound on both sides.Even when it did work you couldn't hear it too well. And this was meant for swimming laps!!???? You are better off just counting laps than trying to listen to music with this poor excuse MP3 player. Sony sucked ass with this product. Recommend you do not buy !!!
I don't know how people swim with these, they are too bulky and do not stay in the ears because of the water resistance. You cannot put it under your swim cap because it's too bulky and even if you do the cap doesn't hold it well, again because it's too bulky. Do not buy if you plan to use these for lane swimming. Would like to return it but too late
