Meaning, if you turned the jack in the socket a half turn the headphones would stop working.

I use my iPhone for exercise and had ruined the on/off button on the Apple headset that came with the phone by getting the mic/on/off part wet.

I use this with the waterproof armband with my iPhone and the reason I dislike this is that they easily fall out of my ears while swimming.

I use my iPhone for exercise and had ruined the on/off button on the Apple headset that came with the phone by getting the mic/on/off part wet. After reading many articles on the H2O Surge Headset, I felt these would do the trick however, with an iPhone 3G, these earphones did not perform as I expected they should have. In order to get the mic/on/off button to work, I would have to plug/unplug them several times. After this action, the headset worked fine until you unplugged them again. To get it to work again, you would have to repeat this exercise. The other downside I noticed was the muted sound coming from the ear buds. I made several changes to my iPhone output but nothing I did resolved the mutted output.

I have had many pairs of earphones with this phone and all preformed well on sound quality except for this pair. I don't know if it is because they are built to get wet but the sound quality was less than desireable. I did replace these with a set of Sony MDR-EX28iP Headset.

Sound was not even in buds. The right bud, which is connected to the microphone, was twice as loud as the left bud. Also, the earbuds had static, not worth the money.

By Sean J. OBrien on March 21, 2011
I bought these for my sweetheart who likes to listen to her podcasts while gardening (can get wet, also got a "Drycase"). The first pair we thought were defective, so we returned them. Not much of a hassle there.

The replacements came and we have the same issue. The previous reviewer mentions needing to plug and unplug the headphones several times before they will work (Mic and button). After some experimentation we discovered that there is only a 160 degree arc that will maintain proper contact in her iPhone 3G or my 4G. Meaning, if you turned the jack in the socket a half turn the headphones would stop working. I think this is some strange design or manufacturing flaw.

I can't review the sound quality, as we simply did not use them enough before returning them. The microphone was mediocre, I'm not saying bad, simply not remarkable.

I use this with the waterproof armband with my iPhone and the reason I dislike this is that they easily fall out of my ears while swimming. Sound quality and the mic leave a lot to be desired. I thought this was a great idea. Swim with my phone, have music and be available to take calls.
