  • 5/19/2015 I use it for Treadmill and Weight Lifiting and it works great!

    5 Review Stars By gymtank

    I don't use if for swimming but I do use it for the treadmill so they get very wet with sweat and during weight lifting and it works great!!! No cords that get tangled in clothing or snagged on gym equipment.  The buttons take time to get use to and to memorize the placement but once you do they are much better than any mp3 player I have ever used before.

  • 5/13/2015 Great for lap swimming

    5 Review Stars By Taps

    This mp3 player is great for lap swimming.  The sound is crystal clear, and once you figure out which are the correct earbuds, and the fit is snug and watertight, even with powerful pushoffs, turns, etc.  The sound quality decreases slightly if you increase your depth in the water.
    The earbud fit is THE MOST IMPORTANT THING to this mp3 player.  If you get water leakage, your impulse will be that the buds are too small and that you need to size up - I started going crazy thinking that this walkman would never work for me, and then on a desperate last-ditch whim, I tried sizing down the earbuds, and the effect was amazing. I now have perfect sound quality, no water leakage, and the walkman remains snug throughout my workout.
    The other great perk is that this walkman charges very quickly.  I will often forget to charge it until I am on the way to the pool, and I will plug it into my car for 5-10 minutes - it will easily hold the charge for a 30-40 minute swim.

  • 1/30/2015 Okay for working out, not for swimming laps

    2 Review Stars By Steve

    The Sony Walkman works fine for working out and is probably fine while using in the rain or playing in the water.  However, I swim laps and I have been unable to find a good fit with any of the ear buds provided and as a result the headphones either completely fall out of the ear or water gets between the headphones and my ear and the sound goes away.  After attempting all ear bud sizes that come with the walkman I have decided to not use the walkman anymore for swimming laps.  Sony should redesign the ear piece to fit more snug in the ear so that it can be used when swimming laps.

  • 9/19/2014 Product is great OUT of the water,

    1 Review Stars By Jenn

    This is SONY Sports MP3 is supposed to be able to be used for all sports including swimming, however, after first time in the water I had a few problems charging the product and after second use in water, The MP3 player no longer works AT ALL.
    I made sure that it was dry b4 charging, and tried ALL troubleshooting available, but NOTHING works, wasted $100 on something that was only used 3 times.
    You may want to look for another brand or better product.
