Customer Reviews

Then I find that I have to use the H2O headset with it and no other!

Sometimes I just like the sound of the water and airbubbles going by, but for those times when I would like some music this case makes swimming sublime.

I don't even bother with the arm band that comes with it and just clip it to the top of my swimsuit where is mostly stays in place just fine.

The reason I give this only four stars instead of five is because this case is difficult to get on and off (open and close)

When I ordered this, I assumed it would consist of two hinged parts that snap together and close like the LilyPod, which I had been using up until now. Instead, this H20 model is more of a plastic sleeve which fits tightly over the iPod and seals the water out.

The case consists of two parts- a really a snug rubber pouch (the translucent blue part) and a solid black plastic "core" that the iPod snaps into. The blue cover "slides" up over the black part and the iPod. Because the seal has to be water tight, sliding the rubbery pouch on and off the black base can be very hard. Impossible if your hands are wet. The product comes with a little tiny tube of gel which you have to use to grease the seal every few days, and I don't know what happens when the gel runs out... Bottom line? The pouch is NOT for anyone with Carpal Tunnel or Arthritis.

The access to the iPod controls, though, is awesome. It's been so great to be able to control my iPod in the middle of a swim. So that's a feature that makes this product unique and worth the work. However, there is no access to the "on/off" switch, which means taking the darn case apart after every swim if I wanted to have any battery left the next time I got into the pool.

The good news is that I found out how to out the shuffle to sleep- just pause it. That's it. Next time you get to the pool, press "play" and you're all set to go. No dead battery, same song as last time you swam.

Overall? Worth the work, but I'm not sure if the case will remain a tight fit or what will happen when the gel runs out. Time will tell. My Lilypod lasted YEARS, though, so... we'll see!

Years ago, I used to swim with a Speedo waterproof radio. It was OK, but the sound would cut out because radio waves don't penetrate water very well. Also, it would only last for a month or so and then it or the speakers would fail. Speedo Stopped making it, I guess because of all the complaints. When I saw H2O's case for an iPod Shuffle, I thought that this would be the answer. I already had a shuffle. No radio waves to fade-- just digital music. Fantastic I thought. So I bought a case. First off, the instructions for its use have all kinds of WARNINGS and disclaimers that if the case leaks, H2O is not responsible for the loss of your iPod. The instructions for its use are also complicated requiring a number of steps for proper use... testing, using repeated applications of silicone grease to seal the case -- on and on it goes... Just loading the iPod into the case is a real pain. And then you have to take it out of the case (make sure your hands are dry or you can fry your iPod) to charge it and to load a new play list. What a pain! Then I find that I have to use the H2O headset with it and no other! First, I think this is a real rip to make the device so that you can't use another headset and second, I can't stand the H2O headset. Read the reviews all over the web. They stink. They don't keep the water out of your ears, they look like a head brace, they hurt to wear (the earbuds irritate and grind your ear canals) and to top it off, the sound quality is really really bad. As other HONEST reviewers have stated, the H2O line of headsets suck. Next, I go in the water with this bulky case strapped to my arm, and an orthopedic brace on my head and the 3rd or 4th time I use the thing IT LEAKS and fries my iPod! Man, what a pain. I just want to do my laps with some tunes!Read more ›

Waited eagerly for the product to arrive. It came on schedule. But the waterproof headphones I bought are not the ones that H2O specifies you must use for watertight integrity. Hey Guys! Don't you think that bit of information is something you should include in the product description? Yeah, I'm irritated.

I bought this case to replace my nano and its waterproof case. I found the nano case just too big to be comfortable strapped to my arm in the water. Though still quite a big larger than the shuffle itself, this case is a reasonable size. I don't even bother with the arm band that comes with it and just clip it to the top of my swimsuit where is mostly stays in place just fine. It is difficult to get the shuffle in and out, so I just leave my shuffle in the case between battery charge ups (I kept my nano for other iPod listening) which lasts over 5 swim sessions for me. The H20 earphones (sold separately of course) aren't the most comfortable but with a swim cap they stay in place and overall the set up is worth the trouble.

The case is a bit of a hassle to use, but has not leaked over 3+ months of use.

Pros:

All functions work
Does not leak
Sturdy

Cons:

The auto off on the shuffle does not work because it thinks headphones are attached so you must be sure to hit pause when leaving the pool

It cannot be charged while in the case. This could easily be fixed via a small male to female jumper cable.

This is a great product that works as advertised. I was a bit surprised by the size as it is a tad large compared to the iPod Shuffle itself. While working out the buttons are a bit hard to use with the armband, but nothing insurmountable. I will take a little fumbling in exchange for protecting my investment.

My one disappointment was that the iPod actually has to come out of the case to be charged! This was a huge design flaw in my mind. There are plenty of cables on the market that will charge and sync the shuffle with a standard earphone jack and not the cumbersome base that comes with the iPod. Regardless, though, this product doesn't allow you to use those. Everytime you want to charge or sync you have to break the watertight seal and pull the iPod out.

A better approach would have been to make sure that the headphone adapter has the proper "4-pin" contacts for charging and syncing that the standard 2-pin contacts for stereo headsets. It wouldn't have altered the product size or functionality and would have allowed the unit to stay completely waterproof without having to constantly break the seal to charge and sync.
