I was a little concerned after reading the reviews for the other H2O Audio headphones. People said the sound got muffled when water got in your ears. I have not found that at all with these. The sound is great. They help keep water out of my ears and are very comfortable. I recommend these for sure. I use them with the Otterbox waterproof iPod case and I love that too.

I am very happy with these. I have re-started swimming for triathlon training (after almost a 20-year layoff), and these have made the workouts tolerable. (I love biking and running - just not swimming.)
The sound is nothing to rave about, but it's certainly enough as your head is in and out of the water. Sometimes the sound is tinny. Sometimes you get enough water in your ear to completely block it out; then you just clear your ear and the sound comes back.
I highly recommend these for water sports if you must have tunes. Don't expect high-dollar, high-quality sound; that doesn't exist in the water, unless you're a humpback whale. You can expect to enjoy your tunes in an environment for which they were never created, and I applaud that.

I was very excited to get my waterproof headphones and Otterbox case for my iPod to make my long swims a little more entertaining. I was very disappointed at the fit and comfort of these headphones, however. I have smaller than average ears, and quickly became very frustrated with trying to fit these headphones. I tried them several times, several ways (with the silicon attachments and without, attached to the head band and unattached) and I finally gave up. They kept falling out and they were so uncomfortable. I even tried to tuck them in my swimming cap, but that did not help at all. I plan to return them and try a different brand. If you have small ears, I would pass on these headphones.

They work as advertised, couple with my Otterbox for iPod Nano. Would give five stars except the headphone speakers tend to pivot just a bit while swimming, requiring an occasional readjustment. The harness stays secure on my ears while I am doing freestyle laps and they are in no danger at all of coming off. I clip the Otterbox onto the back of my shorts, and the coiled wire from the headphones trails down my back to the Nano. Wires are out of the way and won't get tangled at all. The seal seems to work for me, though sometimes it works a little loose--a small amount of water can get in the ear, but not very much. Again, a readustment seems to do the trick. Above water sound quality is tinny; when in the water, the water seems to make a seal on your ear and the quality is quite good, plenty enough to enjoy your music. I recommend this product.

First, a quick description of how I use the product: I swim every morning for about 30 minutes (at an average pace) with 10 minutes of sprint intervals at the conclusion of my workout. I also do some training using a kickboard.

The initial problem you will find with the headphones is getting a snug/waterproof fit. The first couple days I was somewhat frustrated until I figured out a way that worked for me. I chose not to use the brace/headband that comes with it, I found it to move as my body moved, which pulled the earplugs out of my ears. Also, at first I tried ramming the plugs deep in my ear thinking this would create a better waterproof barrier. I was wrong. I then, stuck them lightly in my ears creating a slight suction, which worked well. Another thing I found helpful was to tuck the wire/clip from the headphones into the band of my goggles (on the backside of my head) so it wouldnt lay on my back/neck causing the wire to pull the headphones out when I turned my head. The bottom line, when fitting your headphones, is to remember that everyones head, ears, swimming style/stroke is different and it may take a little while to find what works for you. But, please take the time to figure it out, you will be glad you did.

Once you get the fitting figured out, you must be reasonable in your expectations of the product. The sound is suprisingly good, but dont try to compare it with top of the line Bose headphones. Also, I found that on average I adjust/re-fit my headphones about 1-2 times during my workout. This might sound like a pain, but its really not. It only takes seconds to get it done.

In the end, I am so glad I decided to purchase these headphones.

This is the third set of waterproof headphones I have used for my exercise lap swimming. I thought these were the ones that would work. They were much improved over the H2 earphones I had used earlier. The H3 earphones fit, I could hear the music while swimming, the coiled cord reached my iPod on my waistband but did not move around while swimming. However, after about six months of use the left ear began cutting out, a few weeks later the right ear also failed. The warranty is 3 months. This was the same type of failure I have with a set of H2O audio h2 headphones a year ago.

Being curious I dissected the headphones. The wires are very thin and have lacquer type insulation. The motion of my head while swimming wore through the insulation shorting out the earphone. This was the same failure as I had with the H2 earphones.

One other item, when the H2 earphones failed I sent emails to H20 Audio to tell about the insulation problem. I never received a reply from H20 Audio.

Based on two failed products the next set of swimming earphone I purchase will not be from H20 audio.
