Found 5th Apr
Started looking for an mp3 player for swimming (can also be used for running/gym etc) last night, and narrowed it down to the Sony NW-WS414B, which seems to be the most reputable brand that make them whilst being at a reasonable price.

Almost pulled the trigger on the 4GB one from Amazon, which is £59.99, but after doing a bit of searching, found the 8GB one for the same price from the Curry's/PC World outlet on eBay. The 8GB seems to be priced at around £90 elsewhere.

Only 3 left, but thought it may appeal to someone.

I got this one a few months back to replace an older (broken) model. It's a bit plastic-y compared to the older ones, but still excellent - the fact that you don't need to carry a separate phone / mp3 player is great, and it can give you an hour's worth of battery for just a couple of mins of charge

I had a similar pair of Sony headphones a few years back. They were terrible. The main issue (and looks to be similar here) was the way the wire is folded. The pressure from the cable is on the far end from the in-ear part, forcing the headphone to pop out. Really bad whilst running. I want headphones to stay in, I don't want to fiddle with them multiple times.

I don't know if Sony have fixed this issue with newer designs, but from the image above, it looks the same.

8GB for £60. Its like going back 15 years!

sold out now.

Piece of rubber on mine and they have different size ear buds. I have had a about 3 sets though over the years but the most recent set is much improved and probably 2 years old now and works well 5 times a week for me

It wouldn't be too bad if you could expand it but no. What a rip

You can get the older W273 model from AliExpress for about £14.

I got the same but from Tesco a couple years back when they had them for £30. Mines still going strong.

None of them on AliExpress can be used for swimming in case anyone looks. None of them are waterproof.

Anyone who is doing sport knows how this is a great deal. My only qualms is that the volume is a bit low for proper swimming, and that if you misplace swimming earbuds they cost a lot to replace. That said, if you want to run/exercise without worrying about your phone battery life and clunky bluetooth headphones, this is the way to go and you won't regret it.
