Sony NWZ-W252 W Series Walkman MP3 Player - 1

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

  1. I am facing problem on two fronts very recently charging even for hrs it is not holding even for half an hour and not recognise d by usb of my laptop any body out there with help

  2. My wife bought one for me from Japan. It is advertised as water resistant so you can rinse it. I didn’t even do that. Used it for my long bicycle rides. It suddenly stopped working. I called Sony. Although it was under warranty, they asked me to produce all documents with no commitment to fixing the problem. They said it is bought in Japan and not their problem (All done very polite)
    My friend had ipod from apple and had problem with it. They corrected it no questions asked.
    I do not recommend this unit. Not practical for running as it bounces and again on bicycle lasted only 7 months.

    • That’s too bad Kaveh.  I had no problems during my review.  They now make an updated version.  The review is http://gadgetreview.com/2011/12/sony-nwz-w263-walkman-review.html

  3. i'm interested..i'm not a sport person, but i listen to music most of the time…love its wireless characteristic, but i wonder if i can use this while wearing my hijab…will it still be comfortable?because the ear bud seems like it will make hurt my ears…

    • All depends on your ears.  Personally I had no problems, though the fit wasn’t as snug as it could have been, which meant reduced bass.

  4. just posted…I found the Mi-Sport previous model not heavy at all, comfortable and never fell off once. They can`t really as they hook over the ears.

  5. With regard to the Mi-Sport version.. I had a model of their previous pair and they are absolutely not too heavy and are secure. They hook over the ears. They are heavier than the Sony but it plays no part in anything and are actually more comfortable. I have worn very lightweight headphones that are uncomfortable, so comfort is far more important.

    They are a level above the Sony. Navigation through your music will be much better it looks like with this new model… and bluetooth…and fully submersible? For me it`s a no contest, although I bet the Mi-Sport will cost more.

  7. please provide your mac and itunes version because i just got one and it does NOT work with my Leopard Mac and tunes 9.2

  8. I'm glad you mention you ride a bike, I commute as well riding a bike.
    How about the sound while riding the bike ?
    Do you get too much noice from the air while riding or does it fit tight enough like the in ear headphones ?

    I'm thiking on buying this one as almost all headphone I use dont last more than 4 weeks as the cables breaks internally close to the plug after being bent (e.g. jogging or holding the ipod touch at waist level}
    Also while riding the bike unless you use in ear headphones or some sort of muffles for your ears the noise is intolerable.

    Thanks for your review and I will appreciate if you can comment on my question

    • don't buy!!!! I had the w202 and the new w252 models both crashed when I sweated on them…I don't like the head phones the guy below us is pitching either, looks heavy, big, and prone to fall off your head…
