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 .
Was a little worried because it's quite a bit of money and these things can be a bit hit and miss with sound quality - but went for it and took them on holiday, where I struggled and struggled to get the headphones to stay in my ears, even after trying multiple bud sizes and when I finally did get them to fit, I could not swim very fast before they fell out again. Even as a avid swimmer, who wears a swimming cap, these things would not stick in my ears, even when placed under my cap.
So... next came a little inventive DIY - I had a spare pair of Bose QC 20 earphone tips (p.s any sports people out there who have trouble keeping headphones in your ears whilst working out, forget Beats sport and their lousy noise quality, get yourself a pair of Bose In ear Quiet comfort headphones - noise cancelling is incredible and they never fall out when running ect definitely worth every single penny!!) you can buy the tips online, some look slightly different but I recommend the ones that look like the link below - you may be able to find them cheaper on ebay.
Anyway, out the generic buds that come with the mp3 player and superglue the rim of new Bose headphones to the plastic MP3 player....the little in ear plastic grooves, which fit in your ear, really hold the walkman in place when swimming and the sound quality is amazing.... because they are ACTUALLY in your ear properly!
TRUST ME IM A SWIMMER!
Have fun with your new and improved headphones!

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.Read more ›
I bought this for my wife earlier in the year but have never managed to get it to work despite trying all the different measures advised by Sony. After eventually admitting defeat and deciding it must be faulty I contacted EU Digital for a replacement/refund and they told me that, as it was over a month since I purchased it, they would not accept responsibility (despite it being well within the 1 yr warranty period) and advised me to make contact with Sony. Sony advised me that, as it was an "in-warranty exchange" EU Digital were obliged to replace it and advised me to ask EU Digital to contact them directly if they still refused. I fed this back to EU Digital and they still refused to accept responsibility and they keep responding with the same message that they do not accept responsibility for the product after 90 days. Sony have repeatedly insisted that EU Digitalare responsible for the full warranty period.
I WOULD THEREFORE STRONGLY RECOMMEND AGAINST PURCHASING THIS PRODUCT FROM EU DIGITAL

Absolutely useless underwater. Do not attempt to use for swimming, as you literally can't hear a thing whilst you start moving.Published 17 days ago by Jo Price
