              I use this product for running. I sweat a lot and I need a waterproof mp3 which would not fall down from my ears. As I sweat too much I broke several I Pods. But finally I found this Sony waterproof walkmen, the first one that remains sticked to my ears. I strongly recommend it for runners like me.

              Comments about Sony 4GB W Series Walkman MP3 Player (Black):

              I had high hopes for this device to simplify the mess of wires hanging off my head during my workouts (in particular, for running). Unfortunately, I just could not get the ear buds to stay in my ears during a hard run. I tried swapping the small rubber pieces that fit over the "buds", but none of them worked to keep the ear phones on my head as my head bobbed up and down during a run. Also, nagivation was cumbersome without a screen to see what artist/albulm was playing.
