This is really the only sport mp3 out there, without the annoying wires and with a decent quality of sound. My only gripes are that the earbuds hurt a little bit, but perhaps I have very sensitive, strange-shaped ears; and why oh why is the volume never loud enough on mp3s?
Anyway well done Sony, it works. Your customer service stinks but you've done well this time.
The concept is brilliant but hopefully in the next iteration they make the player quite a bit lighter, allow for a more snug fit around the neck and head, also a greater variety of buds is required for a product like this to find the best possible fit.
Otherwise it's a great idea as they charge very quickly, mean you never need to carry seperate earphones and irritating wires around, are water/sweat-resistant (*not* waterproof) and are well designed to use with touch alone (obviously you can't see the controls). The 'Zappin' function that plays you previews of tracks is also quite handy but not really a killer feature.
Basically try them on beforehand if you can!
This is an awesome product and it feels good to be free from wires while moving around. I also have another MP3 player from a brand which is selling like hot cakes since it was launched, but the battery used to die immediately in cold conditions.This is much better as it generally gets covered by my woollen cap. This helps me to listen to music even when it is sub-zero outside.
However, i do feel that they could have made the ear plugs a bit more comfortable.
The transfer of music is straight forward as its just drag n drop. The zappin technology where you get to hear bits of songs ,is very useful and is like a good replacement for going through a playlist manually.
I was worried about getting used to opeating the player without actually removig it from my head and fidgeting with the controls. But one gets used to the controls pretty fast.
A very good product on the whole and i would recommend it to anyone who is on the look out for a good music player with good battery life.
I have to say that it does everything it says on the tin, took a while to find a comfortable fit but you can bend the wires a touch to suit your head shape. I also ended up changing one of the ear moulds to a larger one for comfort (I now have one medium and one large in - I must have very strange ears indeed!)
One tip I can give you to help keep secure on your head is to wear a headband over the wires (type that runners wear to keep your ears warm) this keeps everything very snug and secure but leaves all the necessary buttons accessable.
Overall I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND you buy this, it's cheap, easy to use and not having loads of wires dangling annoyingly around you (especially when you need to add / remove clothing mid run is a real plus!
