To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Tienen una buena calidad de audio y con bastante potencia, incluso debajo del agua teniendo encuenta las limitantes del medio. La duración de la pila es buena, el bluetooth tiene un alcance excelente y el sistema de sonido ambiental es bueno, aunque sólo para ruido ambiente no es bueno para escuchar en una conversación.
El ajuste es bueno, sólo que cuando se usan bajo el agua necesitan afirmarse con algo más pero basta con apretarlos con la liga de los googles.
I use this product when I swim. It just made my workout so much fun. Nothing like blasting my favorite rock tunes to pace myself. - Solid, quality construction. -Very good seal, so no water in the ear canal. -takes some time to find the right way to fit in.
As any Sony product, lots of buttons and features. Takes some time to get used to it. I was hoping the I could use the Bluetooth feature from my apple watch to stream music while swimming, but the BT cuts off as soon as I get to the water. But not complaining about as it was not an advertised feature. But while working out outside the pool, streaming from the watch works very well, so I do not have to be monkeying around with headphones, watch and phone. As for the sound quality, I find very good considering the final objective I am using this for .
When I pay $150 for earphones, I expect them to be really good, but, these pair are not that good! - The sound quality wasn't very good comparing to my Note 8 original earphones! - The mic didn't give a stable connection during a phone call! - Having different earbuds (Standard and waterproof earbuds) isn't actually practical! Every time I wanna go swimming I need to change them, and after swimming, I need to change them back! - If the earphones came off your ears while swimming it'll sink!!! Also, you won't be able to wear them again because your ear will be full of water!!
And this advertisement about the "Ambient Sound mode" is not true: "Ambient Sound mode allows you to hear the ambient sounds around you, even as you listen to music. So, you can listen to your fitness instructor or talk to your friends without missing a beat."
This mode is not something applicable! Especially, when you play music, you cannot feel the difference between the mode enabled or disabled! In water, I couldn't even distinguish if it's On or Off!!
I use this item while walking in the pool. It makes the time seem to pass quicker, and I really like that I can listen to radio stations as opposed to loading my own music. Update: oct 2019 the volume level seems to be stuck at very low. I found the instructions rather difficult to follow. I’m trying to find a phone number to call Sony, again, having difficulty.
Got this so that I could listen to music while swimming, and it didn't disappoint. Be aware that Bluetooth does not work under water (true in general for all devices -- not just for this unit) so you will have to load up some audio files (MP3, etc.) on the unit itself. I had a minor issue when I used a non-membrane ear tip in the water, and one of the earbuds stopped working, or rather sound was interrupted by water?! (my fault). After I dried it fully, it started working. Keep in mind that the music will not be as crisp underwater with membrane ear tips.
Bought a used one that was labeled very very good. It was in very good condition but came without any of the water proof ear bud and only one size (Large) of the non water proof ear buds. was suppose to have 4 different sizes of each. Came with no charging cord and no elastic tightening strap. Would not connect to my pc to download music. Bluetooth worked well and sound was good. After trying to download music for a long time gave up and sent it back. Had the old model nwz-ws613 for three years and used it a lot. Battery was not hold a charge for long so purchased the newer model. Purchased a lot from amazon and very disappointed they would send out this unit with so may thing missing. Did not mention any of the missing part on there page. How are you suppose to use it underwater if you do not have the underwater buds.
These are great headphones for the pool. I have had multiple units and use them more for after my swim lounging in the hot tub and steam room. I just don't like too many things on my head when I'm doing my laps: I rather have silence. The Bluetooth option is awesome and use that exclusively while 4gb hardrive is useful. Do not wear them while you shower as the soap/ shampoo will ruin them. I learned the hard way. The negative for me is definitely the battery life. You will not get the life estimated by Sony and I would say 3 hours is about right. If you want headphones while you power through laps I wouldn't recommend them as I find headphones while swimming distracting and eventually water will get past the seal if your are a good swimmer. but for lounging in the pool, hot tub and steam room they are a winner!
I absolutely love these headphones. After swimming for 20 years, I've finally found a pair of headphones that work well for me underwater! They fit perfectly with my goggles and ponytail as well!
Some things to consider: 1) Bluetooth does not work underwater, so you will need to load them with mp3 files. Spotify does not allow you to download music as mp3s any more, so you will need to get the mp3 files on your own. 2) Remember to put the swim ear buds on them before you go near the water. The fit of these is extremely important! 3) When you push off from the wall, be aware of how hard you're pushing off. I pushed off way too hard and they went flying off my head.
Great for swimming , or excesice on the gym. I love them because they are water resistant, so no matter how much i’m sweat on the gym they always work. I own an older version and I buy this one for back up. This new version has an amazing sound improvement.
