Lee, Chippenham

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I had the previous model of this mp3 player and I found it to be brilliant, my only issue was it wasn't waterproof and died after about 1 year. This model seems to have had all these issues rectified and upgraded, brilliant piece of kit.

Ian, Runcorn Jog 24k a week

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good sound quality, comfortable fit, lightweight. Battery lasts for ages. Fast charging. Easy to upload and manage song tracks. The black coloured item is discrete on the ears and doesnt advertise to anyone wishing to steal them from your head.
Bad points:
The ear piece's do tend to slip out of the ear, particularly when the connection strap catches the back of your collar. I did not have this problem with the earlier model. I found changing the ear lugs to a larger size (these come with the product) lessened the number of times they slip, but did not fully resolve the problem. Also moisture build up on head and face seems to add to the problem as the ear pieces slip more easily. Not a major problem, but more of a gripe.

Jason, UK

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
good for running and in the gym.. but if doing some extream cario will probably fall out
NO WIRES to get tangled up with.
once you've leant the 6 button its very easy to use, even when running, and there is not screen to distract you when changing tracks crossing the road!
better fit that pervious version that I snapped carrying in my bag with some books.
Bad points:
with 2Gb, can be difficult to locat a track you want, unless you keep it updated through you laptop and make play lists for that day.
play lists work well but you have not idea which your listening to as there is no display, perhaps it would be good to get audio discription of those, like there is of the play, next track etc
its very small so easy to shove in your pocket... bad idea as you'll snap the ear buds off! the carrier does not protect the unit that well (SONY needs to impove this, maybe box the ear buds in the carrier).. best ware it!
