Tap Into More Storage

Don't let its compact size fool you. With 4GB of internal memory, there's plenty of room to store up to 900 songs. Quickly search through your music with ease using convenient, multi-function playback buttons. One quick tap switches the track, while holding down the button for longer changes the folder completely while in All Play mode. In Playlist mode, a quick tap changes songs, while a tap and hold changes the entire playlist.

Legendary sound meets sporty style.

Legendary Sound Meets Sporty Style

Rock out on the run or while concentrating on your core with full, rich legendary Sony sound. Choose from four new colors to add a pop of style that's totally you.


Note:When you use the Sports MP3 player in water (do not use in ocean/salt water) be sure choose the size of earbud that fits securely in each ear canal.

Sound quality may deteriorate if water gets into the headphones. So, take time to ensure you have a good fit of the earbuds in your ears.

If water gets into the headphones, hold the headphone facing downwards and tap it 5 to 10 times over your palm. If there is still water in the headphones, remove the earbuds, use a dry cloth over the bud post and tap the headphones on your palm 5 to 10 times until dry.

3 out of 5 eggsPowers down

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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. Not happy.

4 out of 5 eggsSony Walkman

Pros: 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!

Cons: 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.
