Frequently Asked Questions
Seeking a truly waterproof, sweatproof, wireless --stay in place-- mp3 player or ear buds, does this one nice?
I have been using the Sony waterproof mp3 player in the pool now for about 3 months and LOVE IT!!!!! The sound quality is great, easy to add music and recharge and the I've only recharged once in the past 3 months. I had looked at the Apple waterproof shuffle, but the price is just too high and you also have to buy waterproof buds separately. Also, the Sony holds more music. A big plus in my book.
Is anyone else having problems turning this walkman on and off, plus it will suddenly go into "zap mode" which is very annoying--I use this for...
The way to turn off the "zapping" mode is to press and hold the play button (right headset, the one on the left head is for shuffle mode.) until you hear the female voice said "Zapping Off". It happens easily at first when you still not use to the buttons, you might have press the play/pause button for too long and trigger the "Zapping" mode. To turn off/on the player, press and hold the square button at the back of the right headset until you hear a "beap". Anyway after you set it to the mode you want and you don't want to accidently alter it while you're exercising or in the pool, you can always slide the lock button up to prevent it.
Does anyone use this for regular lap swimming? How well does it work for you ? thanks
Yes, I use them for daily lap swimming. I swim between 1200 and 2200 yards five days a week. It works well as long as I tuck the wires into my goggle strap and then carefully take my turns. Sometimes, I come off the wall at a weird angle and I do flood my ears which makes it hard to hear. At that point I take them out and swim the rest without them - and then start again with them the next day.
