Sony recalls some NWZ-W202 Walkman headphones over sweat-related issues (update: no recall, 'limited number of units' affected)


Sony's NWZ-W202 Walkman headphones may be great for folks looking for an all-in-one device to use while going for a run or working out -- just so long as they don't work out too hard, that is. Apparently, they have a little issue with not working if you sweat on them too much, which has now prompted Sony to recall all of the affected models. That includes both the black and pink versions, but only those within a certain serial number range. Hit up the link below to check to see if if that includes yours and, in the meantime, stay cool.

Update: Sony's dropped us a line to clarify that the original Sony Insider report is incorrect and that the issue is only affecting a few number of units -- hence, no recall. Here's the statement: "The intention of our announcement and support site was to facilitate voluntary customer exchanges for the limited number of units affected by moisture. To be clear, this is not a recall."
