Sony W Series Walkman Meb Keflezighi

Sony Walkman Meb

This 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. This MP3 player features quick 3-minute charging, up to eight hours of uninterrupted play when fully charged and Sony Clear Audio technologies. A portion of sales goes to the Meb Foundation  in support of Health, Fitness, Education — Balance.

Kind of unique, in my limited experience, but with a Walkman® player, you are never tied to just one music service. I plugged into our MacBook, dragged and dropped my MP3s from iTunes®, easy-peasy. Works the same way for Windows®, Windows Media Player or Internet Explorer®. A shuffle mode is a nice touch and also plays Meb's tips out of order, so that mixes it up a bit.

Walkman Playlist

If you're a long term reader, you'll remember that I have a hard time keeping earphones in my ears. The nice thing with these is that, with the band that connects the earpieces, the earphones are held in with some pressure -- the Walkman comes with 3 different sized earbuds, so that helps with the fit as well. Bending the band a bit allows for a slightly different orientation of the earbuds, allowing for some customized fit.

To have a chance to win a W-series MEB Edition MP3 Player or a Sony Music Pass gift card with 25 song credits, participate in the Rock the Race with Meb, an interactive digital marathon race. Visit the Race with Meb website,  connect with your Facebook account, then follow the simple directions to get started!

  2. It's interesting what people put their names on. Not that it's a good or bad product. But since Meb can't use this device during a race...
