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...

Powers down

 

Bought this as a gift for my dad. Comfortable to wear, easy to operate. Holds a lot of music. Battery power lasts a long time.

Shuts itself off after 20-30 minutes of continuous use. Verified that is not running out of power. Called Sony, and found out that this is an ongoing problem with this style of player. Now we have to return it for a refurb that doesn't have this issue....

Sony Walkman

 

I bought the Sony Walkman to be used while running and it does a great job of staying on your head and in your ear. The wireless feature is also a great plus!

It was quite troublesome to start up. I turned it on, only to hear a few beeps and have it turn off on me. This happened for a while. It turns out that the Walkman detected no music and to fix it, I had to replace the music files.

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
