I reviewed the earlier model of this back in October, and like everyone else completely slated the Sony NWZW202B because the tiniest drop of moisture paralysed it. The bods at Sony obviously got wind of our collective moan and have gone the other way, now making this new model "washable". Handy for the clean freaks out there but even more comforting for the sportsmen among us who sweat like pigs! 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.
