Bas Klein Bog January 8, 2013 07:48 PM Do they float? Arahant January 9, 2013 03:58 AM love how things just keep getting smaller, i think at 100$ they could be half decent. Terry Penrose January 9, 2013 10:07 AM Bout time someone made a compact quality pool player, I'm most definately interested!! Harry Jones January 9, 2013 03:13 PM Actually Sony are a little behind here. There are already a couple of waterproof and wire free devices exactly like this on the market for half the price. These have proved hit and miss because of the in ear fit - if it's not perfect water gets in [whilst swimming] and the music has gone.The best, much more advanced product I have seen for top audio whilst training is the FX-Sport VR1 model which has also has a customisable personal trainer facility and race a virtual athlete functionality as well as better music navigation and 8GB. The Sony is a music player whereas the VR1 is a training device as well. For me, a level above. moreover January 9, 2013 03:17 PM I owned the Wave from some smaller outfit - total junk. Although only worn for exercise, never for swimming, it pooped out after a month and refused to charge. I'm hoping this industry giant has their act together because considering how boring swimming is, and how annoying cables are when you're active, this is a gadget that I'll buy right away. Roger Wasson January 9, 2013 03:28 PM Actually, the waterproof aspect is new, but the in-the-ear mp3 player thing is not. Nelson January 9, 2013 03:42 PM Great! Now people can be oblivious to all around them while they are in the water. I wonder how many people a year die while wearing earbuds because they are too distracted to see that car/truck/bus coming at them?

Regards, Freelance Eng.(designer of smartphone tech, Robert Moynihan January 9, 2013 05:55 PM Sure hope the tension band is strong enough. If not, when you sweat these things will fall right our of your ears. Look at the trouble and modifications I had to go through with last years model and why the downgrade to 4gb. Mine is 8gb and I wish it was more. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nk0Ux_YfZB0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKlpaqTELdo&feature=youtu.be LainieAnderson June 12, 2013 02:27 AM Wow these sound amazing too bad if you get any scratches on the goggle lenses!
