Sony NWZ-W273 Walkman review

 

Taking your tunes into the watery depths, the Sony NWZ-W273 waterproof MP3 player is decent enough on land but does it pass the swin test?

Comfortable. lightweight fit ; 3 minute quick charging ; Easily accessible controls

Insecure fit in water ; Sound quality in water ; Drag and drop music

It was all so promising for the Sony NWZ-W273 Walkman MP3 player but ultimately it failed to impress in the area that it talked up the most. It ticked the important comfort box and was secure enough to wear running or in the gym without worrying if...

Sony Walkman NWZ-W273 sports media player review

 

The Sony Walkman W273 sports headphones are the latest "active" headphones from Sony and are designed for runners, or those keen to ditch the need for a headphone cable trailing somewhere over their body, when they exercise.

Waterproof to 2m, light, sound good

Don't work with your phone, if you use a running app won't work with that either

If you are looking to keep things simple, and want music when you head out to do some exercise, these perform very nicely indeed.

Данная модель стоит около 4 000 рублей, на мой взгляд, это отличный компромисс между спортивными наушниками и плеером для спортзала, смело можно оставить телефон на час в раздевалке, взять с собой только W273S и отправиться на тренировку. Отличная...

Sony NWZ-W273 Walkman

 

Like Speedo's Aquabeat, the snappily named Sony NWZ-W273 Walkman packs in 4GB of storage for all your tunes, and wraps around the back of your head for ease of use and comfort. It's completely waterproof up to a depth of two metres as well, so unless...

Don't swim for mor than 5 minutes

 

I have used these for three swimming sessions and each time lost sound in the left ear while swimming. I am using the largest ear insert and still seem to have water entering my left ear. Once that happens there is no more sound until it seems they dry...

They're good, but need some software help

 

Just bought these and used them for a few workouts. They fit well and the music quality is good. They stay in place well and don't need re-adjusting while working out. The one issue is the software interface. Would have given it 4 stars if it was even...

Good sound quality, nice fit, comfortable

Bluetooth missing

 

I understand that the main feature of this headset is to use it while active swimming or running or any other sport, but if I spend close to $100 on a pair of headset I would also love to link it with my smartphone and play the music I have with me all...
