pink also available at the same price

ordered......cheers

I have these! Wouldn't swim without them now! My last pair only lasted 18mths tho as the battery went, but I did keep charging them every time and don't think I needed to. Plus they were in my gym bag next to my lock. I did buy another pair straight away as didn't want to go swimming without music!

Did you use yours with a Mac or PC?!

shame - waiting for the orange and black ones to drop in price, but suppose the popular ones won't

still to much for me but like the idea. get to 20 quid and im in..

Thanks been waiting for these to drop in price didn't fancy paying £59 I'm not fused with colour more price

Being fused with something must hurt ;-)

I hated these as they constantly fell out when turning or clogged up with water blocking sound within about 10 minutes of entering the pool. Amazon will take them back though so you should be OK. Good price if they work for you.

I bought a pair last time these were on offer. Been about 6 months at least and going strong. The battery is a bit odd in that it states 50% left but then goes flat with minutes. However, when charged to a 100% lasts ages; could just me over/under-charging.

Stays in the ear once I changed to the buds that fit and it comes with several sizes in the box as well as separate swimming ones, in various sizes.

I love it and use for boxing training, running and general use in the gym. Never failed and does the job and completely wireless without the need for extra gadgets, especially when running and no pockets.

These are great - I've run several marathons using them and they're cracking. Sometimes you need to bang the ear piece against your hand to get the sweat/water out (as guided to in the instructions) but otherwise they give good quality sound and actually stay in your ear. Bliss! Wholeheartedly recommended and a great price - thanks OP.

Nice price

back up to £50 in blue, still £29 in pink

Cool.

Was interested in these but wasn't too keen on the blue, so I've found a pair of black ones on Very.co.uk for £29.00. Delivery is £3.95 so total for these is £32.95. Also you get 10% off your first credit order when you open an account. There is a 3 week wait for delivery but seeing as most people start their fitness revolution around the beginning of January anyway is falls quite well. Hope this helps someone.

I purchased these about 6 months ago, use them for my daily swim 5 times a week, pretty reliable. I would recommend these at £29. Don't worry about the colour, who cares in the pool or sea. They come with 6 different ear buds, 3 waterproof and 3 normal. Transferring music is very fast and easy. A 3 min charge will give a couple of hours playback. I treat mine without much care but they keep on working well.

Wahooooo ordered .... Thanks x merry Christmas to me X)

they look kinda big

Great! Now when I swim with Sharks I can listen to the jaws soundtrack!!

These are life changing. Listening to music under water is awesome.

As some have mentioned you may well want to buy some flanged ear buds, so they stay in your ear better.

Also make them a bit wet before putting them in, and make sure the fit is really snug.

They will still come out sometimes, but very good for the money.

As an aside, a new version is out in Japan already, which is 16GB I believe, has a Bluetooth control ring (which is splash proof not warerproof), etc. Don't know when/if they'll come out in the UK. Likely to be around £120 quid though, so I'd just get these.

They really aren't. They do have other issues but size isn't one of them.

Cold. Says 50.

White one says not currently being sold by amazon as product is under review as not as described?

All back up to 50 now!

can get same price at very.co.uk with free collect+ delivery. 3 weeks wait for delivery though.

been waiting ages for these to drop in price, got some off very for the same price! thanks! :-)

50 pounds now:(

Black ones now £29

Every description I read says the 274S comes with swimming earbuds, but the 273S does not, and if only I could find out where to buy these official swimming earbuds maybe I could decide on buying the cheaper 273S without worrrying I'd regret it... because I want it purely for swimming, water in the ears because of gym earbuds would just defeat its purpose for me =/

Thanks OP, black pair purchased. I currently have a Speedo Aquabeat which has lasted for over 3 years now, but the headphone cable is always a pain while swimming. These should solve that problem.

Never used these for swimming but they're great for the gym. Well worth £60 so for this price it's a no brainer. Quality sound and build.

Even better they're this price in black!

I believe the only difference between 273s and 274s is storage size. 273 is 4GB and 274 is 8GB, nothing more.

Just ordered the 4GB in Black. Nice find. Heat added.

ordered black. Thanks Guys heat added

Just arrived, had a test run, they're awesome!

get a zip seal freezer bag for the bits and pieces that come with these. the plastic box they come in WILL pop open in that drawer where you put everything else never to be found again.

Oops I was thinking of the other more expensive model (which I couldn't afford!) with the bluetooth ring.
But the sony page for the 273 (and 274) mentions the waterproof earbuds halfway down, but then has a footnote which says "The swimming earbuds are not included in the W273." and this has caused me always to hesitate on buying any of them...

Anyway the deal has expired now so I guess that saved me some money on something I didn't need!
