Hola! You guys know that I love to sing Klout praises and I have been a fan of their perks program for….let’s just say forever! I know some people take beef with their scoring system but honestly I would image it’s quite an under taking to judge and they have been making improvements to their scoring. So no hate from me. I maybe jumping the gun on this but as the world’s MOST uncoordinated treadmill runner this may be the best Klout Perk EVER!
Check these out The New Sony Walkman! Please note NO EARPHONE CORD. I’ve shared with you over the years my non-talent for running with cords, I’m NOT good at it. With the new sony walkman……problems solved. I would even venture to say they are Totes ah-maz-ing. The music and controls are all stored in the ear buds and are an all in one MP3 player.
I received them in the mail a few days ago and have been waiting to get back to the gym to try them out! It took me a little bit to get used to how they sit on the head. I’m so used to having to check the cord and movements of my hands it felt nice to just run for once.
I also forget that college is on break. I had a hilarious show of a few college girls who had apparently never properly run on a treadmill to watch in front of me. I kid you not they (there were 2 of them) would run 3 minutes at a 3 incline at a 12 speed then kill the treadmill wait 1 minute then do it again. If it were my treadmill I would have booted them I can’t image that’s good for the motor is it?? I know it was annoying to watch but I was having too much fun with my new W to get overly annoyed.
The Meb Keflezighi special edition 2GB water-resistant MP3 player features exclusive colors and pre-loaded audio tips, plus a Runners booklet with subjects on running, nutrition, stretching and more. I read the booklet while I was sick and it even featured Meb’s running music playlist. I think he’s a BIT of a Beyonce’ Fan! He even listed Jumpin’ Jumpin’ by Destiny’s Child on his list. That song too is one of my closeted favorite running songs 😉 Secrets out!
I was a little nervous about how this would work since I’m a Mac girl but it was really easy to charge and load music to! (yea!)
2GB is a lot bigger than I though I wasn’t expecting to be able to put much music on it but it fit my two current playlists and still had room for more!
I tried to get a good shot of it on my ear at the gym but they came out really bad. They are lighter than they look and I have to tell you being cordless for me SOLD me on these. They could weigh 2 pounds and I would probably still love them. There is nothing more annoying that constantly swating crazy earphone cords. I have pretty tiny ears to so normally earbuds are really hard to place. I think the shape of the cord over the ear helped these fit me properly.
The controls are all on the bud which also took some getting used to. I kept shutting them off today instead of changing the song. I was also getting some really strange looks for an older man working out who I think was checking them out 😉 There is a shuffle feature which I turned on after some initial struggles.
Looking them up on the SONY site they are currently $59.99 and they usually are $69.99. The price point isn’t I think I will be rocking mine more a lot at the gym. Not only do they work for cardio but also for weights. When is the last time you were able to wear your earphones when using weight machines?!
– All in one! No cord, great for treadmill and outdoor running
– Great space (2GB) for music storage
– Comes with pre-stored running tips from Meb, you can remove them if you wish.
– Makes a noise when you change the song as a cue it’s changing! Great feature since you can’t look at it.
– Easily works with my itunes music and my MAC
– Takes some time to figure out the controls and for those with bigger fingers it’s easy to hit incorrect buttons.
– Price might deter some people.

I ended up getting in a quick 5k this morning. It should have been a 5-7 mile day but I’m fresh off a cold and don’t want to push it yet. PLUS there is a rumor floating around that the hubs and I are going to go on “lifting dates” after the first of the year! I’m going to need to be on my A game for that adventure.
