I have been looking for the black or white design of this music player but the stores I have been to only have the pink. I can’t help but be amazed by the new Sony MP3 Walkman. It has the features I have been looking for a music player that I can use for running The Sony NWZ W250 Mp3 Walkman is wireless, lightweight and waterproof.
One feature I like about this player is that it has no wires. I was able to try a working demo unit and you simply place it around your neck and fit the ear buds to your ears. That’s it. No messy and long wires to fix when you are running. It doesn’t fall off when I tried jogging in place.

Finally, a waterproof music player. I only have a waterproof earphones. The earphones I have right now can be used even when it’s raining. You can even wash it under running water. But, I have never used the earphones when it’s raining even if I wanted to. Why? Because my iPod Nano is not waterproof and placing it in a waterproof carrier makes it bulky. So what is the point of having a waterproof earphones when your music player is not waterproof. That is why I wanted to have the Sony MP3 Walkman so I can enjoy music even in wet weather conditions.
It looks cool to run with music, right?
However, I don’t like in-ear type headphones. While they are good in canceling some amount of noise, they also cancel sounds that can help you in the run. My concern here is safety. You won’t hear the warning signs when they are coming. I want to hear dogs barking so I know when I should run fast for my dear life.
Also, the Sony Wireless MP3 Walkman is purely for this single purpose. It doesn’t have an audio input in case you want to use it for your other portable devices like a PSP or an adidas miCoach. [Read my review of the adidas miCoach]. It will just play the music you placed on it.
Still the Sony Sony NWZ W250 MP3 Walkman is something, I want to have. A part of my wish list. But I find it impractical to buy because I have 3 earphones already, a music player and a portable game console. But if someone gives it, then I’d gladly accept. I have been a good boy, Santa. 😀
