Almost perfect

4GB 03 December 2018

It's everything I need in a sports music player. Waterproof, great fitting, long battery life. Ambient sound is useful. Almost perfect ... if only it can separate the music into selectable folders.

Great design, but technical issue.

4GB 18 December 2016 by KANNANARUN

I love this device. But there's an issue with it. When I run wearing the walkman, because of my running motion (as I land and take off with every step), the sounds gets diminished and then becomes audible, in a cycle. This is kind of addressed with a higher volume level. But not an apt solution. And the sound quality is really bad. The music is therefore not inspiring during a sports activity. That should be the purpose of this device - inspiring music during a tiring activity, so that mind over body happens.

Great Quality

4GB 05 May 2019 by Chepac

I bought a famous headset brand touted as Dive model for Swimming and it didn’t work- it cut out every time I dived! So I returned it for this Sony. Right away I could see the quality of the Sony headset and the charger is miles ahead of the brand I bought initially. The Sony worked flawlessly and even came with special earbuds for Swimming.

I’ve many Sony products but I knocked off one star for these reasons: 1. It won’t cost you, Sony, to give a minimum of 8GB storage. 4GB is just too stingy. 2. Maximum volume using the swimming ear tips is a bit soft. 3. Having a ridge or lattice design on the housing happens to irritate my ears every now and then. What’s wrong with a smooth finish?

Best swimming companion!

Plug and swim. No opening to seal, no worries. Best companion for long solo swim! Hope Sony can add audio battery indicator in future models.

Fantastic device

4GB 20 March 2019 by Thomas16

I bought this around 3 weeks ago and it has made all the difference to my swimming routine. I used to get bored and stop after 25 minutes or so, but now I swim for around an hour each time simply because I can listen to my favourite songs while I swim. Super easy to set up and use. Charges quickly via USB. Comfortable to wear. Comes with multiple ear buds for wet and dry use. I highly recommend this for swimming.

Great for swimmers

4GB 08 March 2019 by EduardoSG

Have been using it a couple of weeks and I love it. Drum and Bass DJ Goldie has one, so I decide to try one. The build quality isn’t fantastic if you are used to Apple products, but it does the trick. You get used to the buttons after a while and if you are listening to long mixes like I do (1hour plus) then you don’t have to play about with them. The other criticism is it isn’t very loud when you are in the water. would like to see that addressed in the

Good for long swims

I bought this for swimming and the sound quality didn't disappoint me. Made my 1hr swim less boring with music. Didn't get the bluetooth version because I only use this for swimming.

Usable while swimming

4GB 27 November 2018 by anonymous1289

Walkman is usable under water as long as the water does not leak into your ear. This is possible via the supplied water buds. But the battery-life is only half (6 hours) of what is advertised (12 hours). As for uploading MP3 tracks to the walkman, it seems to go unresponsive after the upload; and the only other way to get it working again is to reset it. Initially, this feature led me to think that the unit died. Then I found that resetting it allows it to be responsive again with the songs intact. (Also works on Linux although not quite support by the Song app)

Purchase this to replace my similar but older Sony device which was having charging issue. Glad to see that the charging mechanism is different and hopefully won't give me any charging issue as previous.

So so

4GB 23 July 2018 by Yong88

I bought it last month and this was my number 4th piece so far. I have no other choice as I love to listen to music while swimming. The last 3 pieces were spoiled after just a few months and I have to send to the service centre for repair. And I have choosed to buy a new piece instead. All in all, this product is not waterproofed. This number 4 piece that I bought last month will have a buzz sound whenever I swim. I really tired of this product. Finally, the capacity is just 4 GB and I hope it will be bigger in the future product. Hope to hear from you.

Disappointing Sony Product

4GB 11 May 2018 by Lindatlc

1. Bought less than a year ago, spoilt but I couldn’t send for repair cos I didn’t know better to register the product online. Lost receipt too. 2. Bought another same one at Sony Nex. Sent for repair after less than a month’s use. this time I registered the item online to get extended 3 months warranty. 3. Counter staff at Nex asked when I bought when I already passed him the receipt. it’s written there says 6 April 2018. Walkman Went dead on me on 29 April 2018! Please educate your staff.
