Once you get a feel for how to place the earphones under the cap, they are pretty fail-safe (I'd say only once in every 30 to 40 swims I get a little water getting between the earphone and my ear canal--no big deal). And the sound quality (under water) is truly spectacular.
(And btw, I use them with a waterproofed Ipod Shuffle from Swimman.net -- really great solution that clips onto the back of your swim cap.)
There is definitely a little bit of a learning curve to get started with these, but once you get a feel for putting them in right, they add about one minute to your pre-swim routine and are definitely worth it.
Aquapac - more expensive but well worth it. Seals off the water, pretty comfortable, great sound. Audio is good enough I can listen to music and not just podcasts.
Large Blue EAR BAND-IT® neoprene headband.
The sound quality is great, but you have to keep the water out of your ears to make these work well. This is done by keeping a good seal between the headphone and your ear canal. This is a problem if you are swimming because your arm may bump your ears or the cord gets stuck to your skin and gives a light tug on the headphone.
So, without a headband, these just didn't work for me. I tried a swimcap, and this MOSTLY worked for me. I did have to turn the headphones upside down however, as the swim cap put pressure UPWARD, towards the top of my head and would cause the headphones to spring outward (the bottom of them is a solid plastic tab leading into the cord).
The EAR BAND-IT worked perfectly in two ways. 1) It keeps pressure inward only, so that keeps the headphones pressed into my ears. 2) You can wrap the cord around the headband (1 time) as a pressure relief. As I said, the cord sometimes sticks to your wet skin, giving a small tug. That small tug can break the seal with your ear, so if you wrap it around the headband it doesn't pull directly on the headphones.
Overall, I give this product 5 stars because it works as advertised and I really like using it. I knew from reviews here that "keeping it in your ear" is a problem, but there are several solutions and you just need to find one that works for you.
Whenever you're inserting in-the-ear earphones it helps to make sure that they are firmly seated in the ear canal. I learned the "pull your ear flap back" trick long ago and it makes all the difference as it temporarily stretches the opening to your ear to make insertion easier. It sounds silly, but try it and see.
I'm using these with the H20 Audio Waterproof Housing for iPod nano 3G (Gray) and the combination is just great. I couldn't be happier.
