I used to have the predecessor of this model, the NWZ-W273, which I loved but they were unreliable and after Amazon replaced 3 pairs under warranty, they eventually gave up and gave me a refund.
I then bought this version which has some subtly but welcome improvements. The instructions are better, it supports itunes (although it also supports drag and drop - my preferred option) and the big difference is that they now come with 2 sets of rubber earplugs (in 3 or 4 different sizes): either set can be used for swimming, but one set is spefifically designed with a membrane to keep the water out of the player. This makes them a little quieter, so you just turn the volume up one click... This membrane makes a huge difference to the resilience of the unit when you use it. It is true that if you get an earfull of water, the sound will go, but now it is a lot easier to clear your ear and then the player works perfectly again, without having to tap the water out of the player.
They stay in place fine if you use your goggle straps to secure them.
I swim 40 lengths front crawl 3-5 times/week, moderate pace, push and tumble turns.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions .

These work surprisingly well, good underwater performance and easy to charge/use. They fit well and have a simple adjustment for the band and multiple sizes of ear plugs. I've had them for over a month now and they are quite reliable and work well for a session in my local pool which charges easily lasting over an hour. They come with a specific holder/charger which tops them up in under and hour and a half. This charger is also the cable used to upload or manage the music on the headset. the 4GB capacity is good for several albums at high quality which is excellent for a session. Controls are a little fiddly but easy enough once you have it figured out.

If I have a concern it's the use of the supplied software from Sony which means I now have yet another music control/sales programme on my laptop (alongside ITunes, Play and Spotify) and it means I have to learn another UI to add music.

This product is great and apart from the odd minor tweek here and there i cant fault it as a whole!

the setup/connection to pc/file transfer/charging is really easy, i think technophobes would even be at ease with it.

the usage: so far ive used it in the gym (resistance and cardio training), in the pool (breast stroke) and on 4k trail runs.

The headphones stay in place very well and are extreamly secure in all activities. I have noticed that if I do about one full length completly submerged in the pool, water tends to seep into the earcanal and obviosly affects sound however this is due to the fit of the earbuds not the player. The swimming earbuds do tend to reduce this however you sacrifice overall sound quality and volume. I haven't learnt how to dive with them in without them becoming waterlogged and disloged though but the product instructions do adv not to do this due to the pressure on the eardrum anyway.

No complaints with respect to the gym and running, and its great being able to move about with out a wire flapping or tugging and pulling or even headphones being ripped out or becoming dislodged at inconveinient moments.

The sound: From what ive read in the many reveiws on here, i was fearing the worst. i was expecting something like a cupped loudspeaker of an old mobile phone playing the dreaded tinny music of teenage years for the duration of my workout but then i thought, this is sony, it cant be that bad!

I like my music loud and i like it with alot of bass. Im not so keen on to much treble but i know it needs to be there to provide balance in the music i love.

I love these headphones for one reason and one reason alone. They are brilliantly convenient when working out. Like most I used to use an MP3 player in a sleeve plus wired headphones and whilst clearly functional is a bit of a drag - sometimes literally - when using gym gear. When I found the original Sony versions of these I bought and used them until they carked it due to corrosion. They were not waterproof/sweatproof then. After that happened I bought the next generation version that was water resistant about four years ago and which is still working despite near daily use,. However, the headband has lost a bit of 'spring' allowing the right ear plug to slide out when trying hard and sweating. I can't complain. I have not looked after them very well and they are quite an age for modern electronic items.

So I have purchased this, the latest gen version which promises more of the same. Which it is.

Small, neat and comfortable to wear and hang in fine when doing vigorous exercise. Sound quality if I'm honest is not a major priority. If I want that I'll sit in front of a high end hifi. What I can say is that the quality is excellent and on a par with any other modern mp3 player at high bit rates. I defy most to actually tell the difference when jumping around in a noisy gym.

I use Windows Media player to sync music to this player as I rip everything into WMA Lossless. If you have a standard bit rate you could drag and drop if you want to transfer music. Personally, I find the Media Player sync so good nothing else compares. I don't use iTunes so cannot comment on that aspect.

What is much better than the previous gen player is the integrated holder and charging unit.
