Sturdy and comfortable design
by Anand on 2016-08-25
You will start loving it from unboxing onwards.
1. Sturdy and comfortable design.
2. Fits right in to your ears, nothing comes in between whether you swim, workout, travel, study or sleep.
3. Comfortable wide range of quality ear buds.
4. Massive storage for a gadget of this size.
5. Fast charging.
6. Awesome battery backup, almost 16hrs.
1. Lesser bass.
2. Missing USB charger, well you will be needing one when your Computer/Laptop is not around, anyway you can use wide range of Mobile USB charger.
Very much satisfied. <3

This walkman is awesome. Sound quality is good. Fits nicely. I am using this while cycling and in my gym. Ambient sound mode is very helpful. You can here the surrounding clearly.
One sad thing is there is no carrying case provided nor there is any in the market for this. I found one on sony site, but its still not available anywhere :
Before buying, please note this doesn't have any equalizer or any way to increase bass nor does this connects with ur phone (bluetooth). If u r looking for these functionality buy a different one from Sony

Have been using these for swimming for the last 2 months. They seem to work better with the buds provided for the regular running rather than the pool buds. The sound quality became better after I used the regular buds in place of the water ones.
I use them for freestyle swimming for about 4 times a week for 1 hr daily and they seem to work fine I just charge once in a week.
The product has worked well for me.
Thumbs up, go ahead and buy,

Love my swim workouts even more now with this. Also prevents water going inside my ear, dies it elegantly. Good grip and smooth hold which will hug the contour of the body. You can focus on the workout or swim , and enjoy good music. Quality also very good ( I'm a bose fan so its very high standard I'm comparing , believe me). Price is too high though , could have been little lesser price range to promote the product type . Supper seller btw - kudos, and so is amazon
Sound also not that great in water
by Vinay Suchede on 2016-10-04
Swimming wise they would fall off if you push from the wall hard. Sound also not that great in water. I m comparing tho with the finis Neptune mp3 player which has bone conduction tech.
Otherwise for gym workouts etc, these are pretty good. Fit very nicely as well.

Really cool! It does work under water and the sound is high enough for me (I love to listen the music really loud). The earpiece hol real good, and I usually don't like these kind of ear plastic stuff cause they never stay inside my ear. But these one do! I recommend it big time.
Excellent Product from Sony as usual!
by Amazon Customer on 2016-08-05
This is the product to buy for people who workout on their own. Being water resistant, it performs excellent in the pool. Loved it and recommend it to anyone who wants to hear music while they swim. The fit is spectacular, light and comfortable. Added plus is that it stops water from entering ur ears.
Amazing product from Sony!

I am loving it from day one. Ambience mode is amazing. Light weight and perfect for music while running or exercising.
Stopped working 3 months after purchase

This is one awesome product if you are looking for a music player for your workouts or morning run.. I have not checked the waterproof feature yet. But for running, it is so good. It is very light and fits perfectly. There are earbuds of multiple sizes- you can find the one that fits best for you. The sound quality is superb for what it is used. Initially you might feel like hearing your own footsteps louder than the music but that will fade off soon enough.
Update after 3 months of use... After 3 months of use, one day it suddenly stopped playing. The light turns on but no playback. Mailed Sony customer care. They asked to take the device to the nearest Sony service centre. They took the device and said they will replace. Now waiting for the replacement.
Good packaging, on time delivery

Good packaging, on time delivery. I earlier had Sony nws 273 and now I've got this. Great for listening to music and zoning out while at the gym and runs. Decent sound quality and battery life. Water and sweat are not a problem. Ambient sound mode useful when on road runs. Great buy for the price range
It's great in water & on land
by Ujjwal on 2016-08-25
It's great in water & on land! The only drawback is that the volume in the left earphone keeps dropping every now and then. It gets fixed only after I reposition my head (after several tries).
Simple Handy stylish, perfect for rough use..SONY is back..
