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 .

I bought mine from the Sony store, but as I see these advertised on Amazon and I am looking for a new MP3 player I thought I might publish my findings.

Loading the songs requires the Media Go app ... which works OK ... but after all of the tools we have a simple drag and drop as an external drive might have been nice.

The devices works OK, apart from sometimes once a month say it would not power up and I thought this was due to no charge, but when I returned to the cradle it would show charge. I guess that is a pain having no idea of how much charge ... not sure I saw this on media go.

However for comfort and running I have to admit they were one of the best pair of headphones.

However, the device finally has given up and as Sony recommended I take my money rather than a replacement ... I figured this is not an isolated incident ...

My device was used ...3-4 times a week while running so not a heavy user, but was used in the rain / cold etc ...( Yes I do run in England)

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.

Before buying please consider the following:

1. Battery is quoted at 4h but realistically if you want to hear anything you have to increase volume to max which seems to reduce battery to 1-1.5h.
2. If you wear a swim cap the device is very awkward to put on and keep on.
3. Water gets in very easily (usually within the first 10 minutes). Unless you are 70 and swim light breaststroke you'll likely get a leak very quickly. Once the seal has been broken you can forget about hearing anything from that headphone.
4. Proprietary and stupid charging system - you have to lug around yet another bulky charger.
5. There are better earplugs out there that you can buy separately but the device and earplugs are coupled together.
6. Mine broke completely after several months. At the moment it's unusable even out of the swimming pool - just no sound.

I'd stay clear from this device unless you are looking for an awkward mp3 player to use while in the shower, jogging in the rain or doing very light swimming.

I was looking for a mp3 player for going to the gym and accidentally came across this all in one water proof mp3 player from Sony.

First of all, the sound quality is good. Not great but if you are in a gym or in a swimming pool there can be a lot of ambient noise that would prevent you from appreciating really high quality music quality.

Getting music on to the mp3 player is really easy. Just plug it into your computer and drag the songs you want into the music folder. If you use iTunes, you can drag and drop from that as well.

Before working out, going for a run or swimming, it’s important to make sure you are using the appropriate included ear buds that give a snug fit or the unit can fall out or let water into your ears. From a safety/convenience perspective, it is great not to have wires dangling from your ears while exercising. This all in one idea works really well in my opinion.

Using the mp3 player (by the way, can Sony come up with a better name than NWZ-W273S? How about Waterman or something?) is straightforward. I would have liked the ability to fast forward through songs but that hardly a show stopper. After a few minutes, changing the volume/songs is second nature.

Its only 4gb so if you have a large music collection you won’t be able to get it all on. However, it would be a nightmare to try a navigate through thousands of songs on a device like this (although you can have playlists).

Overall, I was torn between getting this or the iPod shuffle and I am very happy with my choice. The Sony is waterproof and there is less risk of loose wires getting tangled up or caught in anything.
