Sony W Series Walkman (NWZ-W262)

 

At $60, you'd be lucky to find a good pair of earphones, but the Sony W Series Walkman NWZ-W262 adds an MP3 player and a gym-friendly design to the strong audio performance.

Affordable. Impressive audio performance. Secure fit and easily portable design. Water-resistant.

Low storage capacity. Controlling songs without being able to see the buttons can be tricky.

Performance and Conclusions There's no real user interface to discuss here—this is a simple device. It connects to your computer—Mac or PC—via USB. You can simply drag and drop files onto its icon on your desktop, or use a music file-management program...

Sony Walkman NWZ-W262 Review

 

A compact music player that nearly won us over.

easy to transfer music, good audio quality

won’t fit everyone, buttons are hard to reach, short battery life

Audio quality from the NWZ-W262 was quite good, and there was little audio leakage experienced even at higher volume levels. There’s a deep and noticeable bass that doesn’t drown out the treble which is something you often see in other headphones. The...

Sony Walkman NWZ-W262 Review

 

The headphones are not as comfortable to wear out-the-box as I would have liked, but the comfort factor does improve over time. The Walkman headphones certainly look futuristic and cool with the two control pods being flush to the sides of your head –...

Good stuff

 

This is an excellent product. I use my pair mainly during dynamic excercise, as in CrossFit, and they work perfect. They do not slip, volume controls are easy, music cycling and shuffle are no problem. 2GB is ample storage for these headphones.

I use them when I go for a walk or when I am in the gym. The sound isolation is great. The sound quality is superb. Initially, they would keep slipping when I used the treadmill. After changing the ear pad to L size, they are working fine. But if they...
