NWWS623/B Waterproof/Dustproof Bluetooth Walkman with Headphones
Customer Reviews for Sony NW-WS623 Sports Walkman Wearable Bluetooth Digital Music Player
My old water-resistant (or not so much) headset stopped working due to an internal short circuit. It can charge but then switches on and off randomly until it is empty again. Play button also doesn't work anymore. Since this is not a repairable item I bought a new one. The new one only has 4GB storage - sad. The sound is a bit better and it has the sound pass through function. Rest is practically the same. Let's see how long that one will last.
I bought the device about a month ago and right now I am using it only for swimming and nothing else. The only thing I like about the product is the fit and the fact that it is waterproof. On the other hand the many disadvantages I feel are: 1. Short battery life on Bluetooth play mode. (Approximately only about 3 hours). 2. Absence of warning of low battery level. (The moment the low battery audible of low battery is heard the device stops functioning immediately). 3. Sound quality in MP3 player mode is disappoint. (Bluetooth play has better sound quality as it it boosted by the phone's music app sound enhancement features.
After so many consideration, I have decided to buy this product and I've purchased this 3 times. So far, it is my loyal companion in my swimming.
A few things for improvement : - memory capacity needs to be increased - need to improve quality of the mechanism, my second one was already had glitz only after less than a year usage, luckily the service center replaced it for the new one but I also bought the new one cos I couldn't wait for 2 wks (I had to swim the next day). My first one was lasted a few years.
Bought this about a month back. Very good for a workout & running - stays in the ear, without slipping or falling out. It's very light, so is not uncomfortable even over 2-3 hours of use The buttons are quite easy to navigate, and provide wireless access to practically all major functions. Sound quality is surprisingly good for this price-point ! Battery life is also pretty good.
I wanted some music whilst doing my swim workouts. MP3 is a great feature as Bluetooth needs my hand phone nearby and it don’t work in water. The buttons need getting use to. The ambient function is good. In pool, I want to only listen to my music. On my runs, I want to hear the surroundings for safety. This product did it all. It’s just a little bulky. If it’s slimmer, would be awesome.
This was my third pair. Slight improvement on the charging adapter but the charging contact point between adapter and ear phone can be improved as the last experience was due to loosen in charging contact point. As for sound quality is almost same, hope it can improve in future.
This walkman has made my swim sessions way more delightful. It was more like a dream for me to be able to listen to music while swimming. Sony has made it come true. The sound quality is really good. Operating it is very simple. It has very clear instructions online. I hope Sony offers some app support in the future so that we can use offline music stream services like Amazon music, etc. I also wish it came with a case! What else can I say? I love my walkman.
This Sony Waterproof and dustproof Walkman® with BLUETOOTH® Wireless is super great. What I like is the sound and simple to maintained. The battery can last longer than what I anticipated. As I use it for my gym training and jogging is very light when you wear it you really don't feel it at all.
I brought. 2 sets of the headphones. 1 for me & 1 for my partner. We love them and find the sound quality to be great. The only down side to the headphones is being able to load music to the headset. The process needed to go through is not as straight forward as it says especially if you are trying to use music from Spotify.
I used to use a wireless headset by LG. That headset would almost immediately connect to my iPhone using Bluetooth when powered up. The Sony headset takes more than 15 seconds from power on to establish Bluetooth connection. After using this product for a month, recently, the Bluetooth connection does not even get established. Have to re-do it several times before connection is established. Not as good a user experience as my LG headset.
I use it for a running. It never show the current capacity of battery. I cannot estimate how many minute it can last to play song. I am not a audiophile, as long it can play song for me during a long distance run.
stopped charging all of the sudden, i rinse it after pool, i dont over charge, just stopped charging, tried all trouble shoot nothing works, had it for like 13-14months only and i dont use it every day
i bought this around 2 months ago and i hardly use it. Using it about once to twice a week for swimming and jogging only. The left ear piece spoilt after few time of using it. It went totally soundless. I owned the older version as well and it also spoilt after couple of months and i was lucky that it was still under warranty and the sony center replaced a new one for me. As for current purchase i send it in for warranty as well. I was satisfied with the older version (Which it lasted for almost 5 years)
I have been using the Sony waterproof walkman for swimming almost on a daily basis and I am very happy with the sound quality of it both under and above water. They are fairly stable on the ears as they do not fall off when I do freestyle turns while swimming either. It is fairly easy to use with the MacBook to download music onto the inbuilt MP3 player.
1- Doesn't pair easily and have to manually pair it every time I use it. 2- When wanted to download music , I needed to download my music from Spotify to another SW then download my songs into Sony. i tried a couple SWs and didn't work so I lost this option. (too much hustle) 3- I usually use it 4 days a week when running. I stopped for 10 days and now it's dead. 4- Went to the store to check on the warranty. after 6 months by 1 day , its void but they said the problem is in the base charging which they don't carry.
Bluetooth stops underwater. This unit apparently has the bluetooth receiver in the right earpiece which is more frequently underwater when a right handed person swims freestyle (our heads turn to the left to take each breath.) To keep the music playing it is necessary to stroke harder with the right hand to keep the right ear at the surface. Putting the receiver on the left would be better for most people. Raising it above the head with an antenna in the back could solve this issue for everyone.
I have purchased this twice now because I love the functionality so much. Both had the same issue though. Once I was out of the one year warranty period the battery stopped holding a charge and I could not use the thing anymore. Both times it happened pretty abruptly. Very disappointing because I love them otherwise.
