Amazing for Small Ears!


This is a really great product. I love how easy it is to use (once you get used to wear the buttons are). I think it's great for people with small ears b/c my ear buds never stay in place and these did...while running!

light weight, easy to use, great to run with, wonderful for working out

Learning curve of where the buttons are

Cool Design, Wouldn't Stay in Place


I was really excited to receive the Walkman. Unfortunately, I probably won't use it while running because it kept falling out of my ears. Admittedly, I have had this problem with other earbuds. Might be better if it wrapped more snuggly over ear to...

No cords! Hurray

Moved around during run

Amazing Cord Free Headphones


Love these. They are comfy to wear for 1 hour workouts or just around the house. The fact that they have the built in MP3 player means that you don't have to have a cord running down your arm.

Not Apple-friendly


I like the concept of the Sony Walkman since I don't have to hold anything like an iPhone, iPod or MP3 player or worry about wearing a belt that does. And the sound is great. But, since I have all Apple products, including a MacBook Pro and iPhone, I...

Nothing to hold

Doesn't work well with Apple products

Worth it!


I wasn't really sure what to expect. I like having my music on my phone and I've gotten used to walking around with a cord for my earbuds getting in my way. This is great because I don't have to worry about knocking the buds out of my ears. The buds...

hands free- comfortable ear buds

Sony Walkman W - Great for the active lifestyle!


I love this Sony Walkman W!!! Its lightweight, has no wires, and charges in a flash. I love how I can leave this in the workout bag for the week and it will last.

Wireless! Lightweight! Works awesome

Sweaty ear canals can cause earbuds to slip out

I read the reviews that indicated these were bad for long runs. I have no trouble. They stay in my ears fine. I love them.

I wish these were invented years ago. Makes running with headphone so much nicer. If any improvements could be made, this device wouldn't be as compact. I love them!!

Good fit; no wires; good sound; no bouncing

Wish I Had Known


I love the idea of this product but it's not quite what I expected. I've tried every possible ear piece but it pops out every few minutes or so. Pulling a cap down over my ears is about the only thing I can do to keep it in place. Also, not a very full...

No wires

Fit not secure; not much bass
