5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect - does exactly what it says on the tin, 22 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony Walkman Waterproof All-in-One Sports MP3 Player - Black (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
I brought this Walkman after a lot of researching on the internet. I read a review on here written by someone who swims a lot and I purchased it based on this review - its on here somewhere. I brought this item with a view that if it did not suit the pool I would use it doing other exercise. I was really impressed when it arrived at the ease of the set up and how quick it took to upload music. I love that it is iTunes compatible and its literally drag and drop your tunes!

I tried it dry first at home as I had read that you really need to make sure that the ear pieces fit tightly and I had brought additional ear pieces but it turns out the ones that were fitted originally were perfect. Sound quality is exactly as you would expect from Sony and it is excellent.

At the pool I got ready with the headset before submerging - I was a little apprehensive and had convinced myself that this was going to fail.... How wrong I was! The sound was brilliant, the music helped my rhythm and breathing - I doubled my length number from 20 to 50!!! The sound is fantastic and I only had to have a little adjustment twice in my session, in fact my goggles were giving me more grief than the MP3 player!!! Make sure the head band fits properly, I use a swim cap and goggles when I swim so I put the goggles on after the MP3 player and I think this helped keep them in place as well as the grip provided by the swim cap.

My advice is take the time to get used to this BEFORE you swim with it, make sure the ear pieces fit properly. I read that if you get water in sound quality can be poor but this is because of the water NOT the headset. Read the instructions and you will be fine. Best get fit accessory that I have ever brought. Its also excellent for running and walking, I like that you don't have to worry about the physical MP3 player element as its all built in. No cables getting tangled ect.... All in all a worth while investment - great work Sony!
