Also, this review:
Sweat Issue Date: May 17, 2009
Pros: good sound, wireless, easy to load
Cons: not waterproof, earbud not fit, connection loop pulls on back of head
"I bought this before I saw recent reviews of not waterproof. It contacts the face and after each workout I noticed the amount of sweat on each piece. I wipe it off but only after a workout and was concerned enough to come back into reviews to see if this is a problem. And it is. It is advertised to people working out. I would not have bought it if there was a warning that it wasn’t waterproof.
Also I agree with other review that the ear angle is not good. The wire loop around the back of the head keeps pulling the ear part to an angle that is not in the ear for good sound. Although even with this happening, it still has enough good sound to be really enjoyable.
Not sure if I’m techie enough to take the thing apart to waterproof it and hope Sony fixes this problem."
…bothers me. I sweat like crazy. I have had headphones quit working because of the amount of sweat that comes in contact with the ear piece. That would make these very temporary meaning I would have to buy a whole new set each time wear one out.
On a sidenote to this, what headphones would you reccomend? At the moment i just use the standard ipod ones but they fall out when i start sweating so are pretty useless.[/quote]
I was buying a pair of off Amazon that had great sound quality and wrapped around the back of your head. They also folded up to make storage easier…but they quit selling them. They were cheap too so I was just buying a new pair about once a year or maybe once every 9 months or so.
The ones I am using now are just basic behind the neck Sony’s. I have a Sansa mp3 player that works pretty good.
I have had two iPod shuffles (the first model and the clip on one) but that company pissed me off when I found that I couldn’t download songs I bought off iTunes to any other player.
I won’t be going back to them.
