Black 4GB Walkman Sports MP3 Player
Worst purchase ever
I was very disappointed with this product. The first one I purchase did not charge, brought it back to the store and they could not charge it either. Got a replacement, however, when fully charged it would only play for 20 minutes and then cut off. Brought it back to the Sony store and was hit with the 15% restocking fee, which I thought was very unfair, since this is obviously a faulty product that I should not be forced to keep... POOR PRODUCT!!!

Great except for....
Purchased for workouts. Good sound. Good bass. Good volume even during workout. Sound great just sitting around.
My one complaint... I am a big guy. Very short neck (no neck really). The cord between ear pieces is TOO SHORT. If I move my head at all the semi-flexible cord pushes against my neck which in turn pushes the earbuds out. VERY IRRITATING to have to re-insert in in middle of exercise. I imagine this is not a problem for smaller folks. You know the lean gazelle types. BUT HEY Sony... not all athletes are skinny-as-a-rail marathon runners. Some of us are quite thick. A longer and more flexible cord would be AWESOME. Currently mine are collecting dust sitting on a shelf. Let me know if you decide to make a model for big boys.

Great for swimming
As the reviews say, it does take awhile to adjust the earpiece to get that solid snug fit. My left ear is the standard ear bud that comes with the product, but my right ear is smaller so I had to switch the right side to one of the smaller attachments they give you. It took almost a half hour to figure out the right fitment...including using some cleaning agent to clean your ears and ear wax because the oil does make the headphones slip out.
All that being said, finally when I got it to work and went to the pool, these were amazing. I've swam for 20 years, 15 competitive, in silence. Now I can listen to music like if I was at a gym, it makes recreational swimming enjoyable! Like the other reviews, if you accidentally hit one side and water goes in, you cant hear anything even if you get the snug fit. But overall, it did what it was supposed to do, and lasted my entire hour of swimming.
