So. Is it worth it? I think so. I've only used it a couple times so far, and here's what I found -
- Volume works really well. My last player wasn't loud enough, and I struggled to hear the music. This player works fine though.
- Earbuds are comfortable, and there's options! There are 3 different size/shaped plugs, so that you can determine the best fit, and they pop on and off pretty easily. I was able to swim for about 30 minutes with no discomfort.
- Charging is a breeze, as it's via usb. For me that translates to anywhere charging, as who doesn't have another device with a usb port?! The port isn't included though, but the cable of course is; so while this may be an issue for some, it wasn't for me.
- Adding music was also easy. The player acts as a usb drive, so it's drag and drop. I used it on both mac and pc, and had no issues both times.
- Radio for if you get bored. So you can switch to the radio if the music you've loaded on isn't quite working out. Another good option, as I've had times where I just wasn't in the mood for the loaded music.
- Swimometer. Definitely not a requirement, but I tested it while swimming and listening to music, and it was pretty accurate.
- Display. It's not the fanciest, most stylish graphics that I've seen, but it's got great contrast, and it's readable.
- Packaging / shipping. Promptly shipped, and well packaged. The unit is properly packaged in the retail box as well, so that wasn't an issue.
- Non-swimming quality of music. What I did notice, is that the music sounds sort of "tin-like" when my head isn't immersed in the water, . .. ....but once I start swimming, it's fine.
- Headphones ear piece. There's that "thing" that goes around your ears to keep the buds in place. Problem - if you're like my and have big ears, they don't work. Couldn't even get them on with that on there. Solution? Cut 'em off. Carefully. Very carefully. Problem solved after that, and I did note that I didn't have any trouble with the buds staying on while I swam.
- Button placement. Horrible placement. Everytime I went to clip and unclip the device, I'd hit the button to skip. The lock feature does activate quickly, but in the couple of times that I used the device my timing for when I wanted the device to either lock, or not be locked, just wasn't working out for me.
Overall, it's a great little device so far. I haven't had any troubles, and my cons aren't well founded enough to prevent me from using the device. And if for some reason I had to get another device either for myself or as a gift, I'd probably buy this one.
Prior to purchasing this Diver waterproof mp3 player, I'd swim upwards of a mile, mile+ and leave the pool. That's pretty much the longest amount of time I can spend alone with my own thoughts before going insane I guess. Well this summer, I entered a lap swim program at my pool in Brooklyn. As I'm scheduling when I can swim and for how long, I started planning two, two and a half mile swims to reach my goals in the limited time I had to get to the pool. So I knew I needed an mp3 player, and one that could withstand the time I was about to spend underwater.
After TONS of research on price points, features and what I needed to get through distance swims, I dove in (horrible pun) with Diver. It is great. I'll get a bit more specific with the pros and cons now. There's a few cons, but nothing that would turn me off this product. And several cons that you're reading in other reviews are mostly due to the reviewer not having common sense. Here we go:
No shuffle. At this price point, I can't complain. And a two and a half mile swim taking me around an hour or so, this is no true problem. Personally, I load up 3 distinct Math the Band albums and listen to them end to end. Seriously, just own up to the lack of feature and make it work for you. I can listen to albums end to end and not complain. If you have to make a folder on your computer and one-by-one make a hand-picked shuffle order, then do that. Just shut up about it and make it work. It's better than no music underwater. Get real.
The earbuds. Remind yourself that this is an inexpensive underwater mp3 player, and stuff will routinely malfunction or not fit perfectly or whatever. I see reviews complaining that the buds hold no waterproof seal, that one ear will completely lose sound at times, or that the things just don't fit. This is partially true, but can easily be worked around to fit and keep your ears dry and music pumping throughout. Listen, the buds aren't sized perfect for everyone. We're individuals. So the part that goes around the ear can really pull the buds out of the ear canal if you're wearing a cap that moves a tiny bit during your swims. And the angle of the buds to everyone's ear holes will never be perfect. This is my workaround. I put the buds into my ear securely first. At this point, you can feel that the ear piece will not fit around your ear. So just keep it on top of your ears, and put your cap on so that it holds the ear piece on top of your ears.adjust the angle of the buds so it fits securely. If you're swimming, you shouldn't be going for style or if people see your earbuds are not around your ear or not perfectly right-side up. Fiddle with them. I've been able to get mine to work flawlessly for entire swims. Sure, if my cap shifts at all I may re-secure the bud, but come on. Eventually, I'll probably get a better pair of buds, but if you can't figure out how to make these ones work, it's on you.
"Earbuds don't stay in when I push off the wall." Do you understand physics? So maybe you have to be more aware that you have a freakin gadget stuck to your head and ears, pay attention to the forces around you. Push off a bit lighter. But once you're out there, submit to the music and get moving. If your earbuds lose sound in one ear like some people say, it just means you have the buds in at a wonky angle, or the rubber came off the bud. These things happen when you shove crap into your head-holes and then exercise. It's not a malfunction of the product, just how you're using it. If it ends up a major malfunction, talk to Diver, they're there for you.
Battery life. This is a personal thing, as my original Diver lived for about 7 or 8 hour+ swims on the first charge. On each successive charge, it held only about 45-50 minutes. I'd imagine that's a one-off problem with that single device. I contacted Diver and their customer service was TOP NOTCH.
More specific, the sound quality, weight, everything. I put on the earbuds like I detailed above, then my cap, then my goggles, then I plug in my Diver and attach it to the back of my goggle strap. It is so lightweight that I barely feel it while swimming freestyle. To be fair, I primarily stick to freestyle, with some breast stroke at times, so I'm not speaking to those of you who go crazy in the pool. I swim nonstop at a vigorous pace and have no issues with the weight.
Sound quality is more than acceptable. I keep all of my music at high bitrates, 320kbps and whatnot. This thing plays 320 files anywhere between 192kbps-256kbps. Which is great. I mean you got the sound of water covering your head and can still listen to great-sounding music. These aren't crappy 128kbps playbacks or anything.
Customer service. Like I said, yeah my Diver was still under warranty, but they were super helpful about replacing my unit and did so in such a timely manner. Diver gets their customers.
And that's pretty much it. You may know I've detailed the cons a bit more than the pros, but that's just for you guys so you can figure out if this dealie is right for you. It's right for me, and I'm telling you it should be right for you.
