I’ve never really been motivated to bring a portable music players along during runs because I felt perfectly entertained admiring the surrounding scenery, trying to keep a good form and checking time splits to ever considered listening to Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No.2 on a portable music player (I suspect everyone would rather listen to crappy Britney Spears*apologetic wave to Britney fans* than Rachmaninoff during a run).
Anyway, I wouldn’t want to be entangled with headphone wires when pumping my arms hard to survive the last km of any runs or get nasty abrasions from those arm-band carriers. However, had a chance recently to try out the Sony Walkman® NWZ-W252.
The Sony Walkman® NWZ-W252 is a music player which has everything self contained in the earpiece, joined by a rubberized band which forms a heart-shape when you put the 2 earpiece together.
Designed for music lovers pursing an active lifestyle, the Sony Walkman® NWZ-W252 is extremely portable with its 42g feather weight mass, wire-free and ergonomic design. In addition, its also water-resistant so no worries about getting caught in the rain while out pounding the tarmac.
After a few run, the water-resistence claim has proven effective having enduring heavy showers and rinsing under the tap. I must admit beginning to enjoy ignoring running partners while listening to the music tracks/ podcasts uploaded to the Walkman. Therefore I conclude I will continue with my bad manners.
