"BEWARE! NOT SWEAT RESISTANT!"1.5 starson by polleitor
Pros: Sexy design, ultra comfortable as you lose completely the wires. Good sound quality. Pretty good idea, as it could have been the best mp3 player for working out.
Cons: NOT SWEAT / MOISTURE RESISTANT. Kind of a joke since its market is focused on people who will use it mainly for working out, jogging, etc. Volume will max out, and the song-skipping-wheel will not function at all.
Summary: I?m highly disappointed with this product. The whole idea of working out without hassling with wires made me want this mp3 player since it was announced a while back at CES. Couldn?t wait for it to hit stores, so I ordered from the sonystyle store. When I finally got it, I went to the gym and after jogging for 30 minutes with it, the controls become irresponsive. Volume maxes out and it didn?t lower if I pressed it. Can?t skip songs nor get zappin to work. I am so pissed off that a product like this that it will be used by people for working out can?t get sweat on it. I guess the testing team is a bunch of nerds who just tested it jumping or walking around their cubicles for about 2 minutes.
If you are thinking of buying this and you are planning on using it to run or for working out, I would advise you to wait and see if Sony can address this big issue. If you workout without sweating, then go ahead. I guess that?s the way Sony thinks people do exercise, without sweating.
