Nice strap and clear aoundt
Bought this Apr2023 and enjoyed the headset hanging over my ears well. Great sound but experienced difficulty in connecting to blue tooth and the battery drained pretty fast. It was returned to Sony repair and I will be given a new set. Will review again on the new set

The love that didn't last.
It is easy to use, smooth setup to download the MP3 and connect Bluetooth. However even following the instructions on how to use. There was still issues and had to send for check and possible repair or replacement. The left earphone can't hear as well too. It stopped working when I left it charging using a power bank. Weird, all my other electronics has lasted a very long time charging using Power Bank.

Aside from this, it's a product with nice features but only if it's more solid.

Underwater Walkman
I bought the WS620 version of the Walkman to swim with so I could hear more clearly while in the pool.

Five months after I bought it, it started to give problems. The mic is not working and support to trouble shoot is lacking. No phone numbers to call. Took it down to service center at 313 Somerset and hopefully they give me a new one. They said they will sms me to let me know in 1-2 weeks! Past 5 months had connection issues to bluetooth as well. Worked sometimes and many other times had difficulty connecting. Not the easiest product to use. I think the Apple ipod has a better track record from what friends tell me and service is much better from Apple.

Great for use in pool as easy to use
This is my third pair of Sony waterproof headphones, which I find easy to control while swimming. They are comfortable and sound quality isn't bad.
Obviously I do like the product, because of above reasons, however I am not happy with their lasting ability. The first pair I had lasted two years, second pair only fourteen months, this is with same usage. I look after them always clean and dry well after swimming in pool and have never used in the sea. Also the price has increased a lot as well over the year, I went for the Bluetooth this time as was only a small amount of money more, will be interesting to see how long this one lasts. I have recommended this products to many people who I swim with, as it helps to ease boredom of swimming an hour, whilst listening to audio books.

Great for sports!
I bought this mainly for my running and jogging exercises. It does the job pretty well. Feels good at ears with great sound. I am satisfied.

Easy to use.
These are the third and most expensive swimming MP3 players I have bought. They are better at keeping water out but I am very disappointed with the quality and level of sound which was much better on cheaper products. The maximum volume level is far too low .

Good product - shame about reliability
Bought these from Amazon and was initially happy with the purchase. However after using them for a month they stopped charging. This was reported and they were exchanged. Have used them no more than 20 times since due to the pandemic and now the sound has failed on the left side earphone. A lot of money to pay for such a fragile product. With warranty now expired I guess my options are limited, but I’m sure not spending my money again on these.
