Actually here is the exact comment:
When the Sony gurus saw my comment they quickly sent me an email to let me know that the Walkman® does in fact work with Macs and to prove it, they wanted to send me one to try out. Needless to say, I was super excited. A short while later (like seriously less than a week) I received a package in the mail that contained my new Walkman® and two additional ones to giveaway!! Which is what I am here doing now... only like 3 months after the fact.
I'm not really sure what has taken me so long to get this going other than life is busy (and I'm a professional procrastinator) and as excited as I was to be hosting the giveaway I just never seemed to find the right time. Well, there is no time like the present.
I don't listen to music much (or really ever) when I run. For the most part, this is because I'm usually pushing a stroller and I enjoy the sweet serenade of my beautiful angels (ha ha ha). Also, the few times that I have run with my iPod, I end up getting frustrated with the cords and the earphones. When I finally decided to try out the Walkman®, it was my first time running with music in probably close to 5 years or maybe even more. I chose an 18 mile run to test it on. I did the first 6 miles without the music and the plugged myself in for the final 12 miles. Oh. My. Goodness. Now I know why people run with music. It was amazing. It was like I entered a warp zone and instantly had fresh legs and the ability to run at the speed of light. Okay, so I wasn't really that fast, but I did actually pick up my pace considerably.
Now I realize it was the music more than the Walkman® that made me feel great, but the Walkman® was the reason that I had the music so it was directly responsible for my feelings of euphoria. The thing I like about the W Series Walkman® is that it comes with three different ear bud sizes, so you should be good even if you have huge old man ears or little tiny elf ears.
|These are the small and large options. It comes with medium attached.|
As for being Mac compatible, it was super easy. All I had to do was plug it in to my computer with the cord it came with
I also love that it is fairly descrete, as in "ha, ha, my kids don't even know that I've literally tuned them out"
Also, if you get tired of wearing it while running, it can double as a super fashionable necklace:
If you'd like a really good review, you should check out Jeff's, HERE, he really did a great job. Or, if you'd like to just win one and try it out yourself then that's cool too.
So, up for grabs are 2, as in one for each of you, Sony W Series Walkmans. All you have to do, is answer the following question:
If you could only listen to 1 song for the rest of your life, what would that song be? Leave me a comment and let me know.
I asked Dan and after a few seconds, he responded, well, THIS ONE, of course. Of course! It doesn't get much cooler than that, especially with the totally rad video. :)
The contest will run through July 4th (which is when I'll be back from vacation) and then I'll randomly pick two winners on the 5th. Good luck!!
disclaimer: Sony provided me with the walkmans® to giveaway. The review is entirely mine. And yes, I did have fun entering in all the ®
