First of all, this is a standard 2 GB third-generation iPod shuffle which has been modified by Underwater Audio to be “waterproof”. It is truly waterproof, but the battery dies after a certain amount of time, and I don't know how much that has to do with the waterproofing or limits of the iPod Shuffle.
When working I would give this six stars if I could. It clips onto my swim goggles or snorkel goggles, weighs almost nothing, and produces very good quality loud music underwater for me. It’s super easy to operate just like an iPod shuffle. I’ve gotten very spoiled by using this while swimming. I use it at the local pool when I’m swimming laps for exercise, and I also use it in the ocean while snorkeling. There’s nothing more fun than snorkeling and looking at fish while listening to good tunes!
Even though it is technically rated to go to some depths, I’ve never taken it below 3 feet or so underneath the ocean surface as I am a snorkeler primarily. Given what you’ll read in the later part of this review I suspect it would die quickly if one tried to use it for scuba. But when I am scuba diving I don't want any distractions since they could be dangerous.
So when working it gets six stars!
Here’s the catch. I bought my first one in May 2012 for $160 combined with some nice underwater earbuds. By October 2013, roughly one year and four months later it was dead, it wouldn’t charge. I haven’t charged it very many times, typically charging it once every three or four weeks.
The company got a five-star for service at this point. Even though I think it may have been beyond the warranty time (they’ve changed the warranty from one to two years), they cheerfully replaced it for me.
Now fast-forward to October 2014. Once again my iPod shuffle has died. It still will seemingly take a charge, but it doesn’t hold the charge for more than a few minutes, and then is dead. Once again, I charge it infrequently.
So I am a little bit torn as I write this review. The company was great about replacing my first unit which died a little more than a year after I purchased it. Now the replacement unit has died roughly a year and 11 months later.
I’ve contacted them, and hopefully they can repair or replace my dead unit. It’s a bit of an expensive splurge if it only lasts a year and a half. It would be nice if there was some replacement program where the company offered a replacement for 50% off. The newer warrantee seems to be two years, so that is an improvement, but it’s likely that if you make it two years you won’t make it much further than that.
I think next time if I do get a new unit I would add a long extended warranty to it. If Square trade would cover it, then it might be worth purchasing an extended warranty. I would certainly be careful and use one of my credit cards that doubles the standard factory warranty. I don’t know if Square trade warranties would really cover such an item, and when I read their fine print I saw somewhere that batteries are only covered for one year, which would make such a warranty useless.
So in summary, the Underwater Audio waterproof iPod shuffle is a wonderful device when it works. I’ve had two so far, and they have averaged between a year and a half and almost 2 years of life time before they died. Again, if these cost the $40 or $50 that a regular iPod shuffle runs, I wouldn’t care, and I would just consider it a disposable item that I replace every few years. But my first one cost $160, and the current ones cost $125 for the iPod alone, and $175 with earbuds. (I recommend you purchase the iPod alone and buy separate earbuds. I've used the Pyle Marine Sport ones which are inexpensive and seem to work fine, as long as you use the right size earflange. ) They are less than $12Pyle PWPE10B Marine Sport Waterproof In-Ear Earbud Stereo Headphones for iPod/iPhone/MP3 Player (Black) on Amazon.
So when working I would give the Underwater Audio iPod shuffle five stars, and I would have given the company five stars as well after they replaced my first one. They seem very friendly on the phone so will see what happens with the second one that just died.
I set up a "swim" playlist on my iTunes desktop, synced the cute little iPod & went on my way with it. I've used it with my ski helmet for days spent downhill skiing and it's been in the pool for many workouts.
I didn't upgrade my earphones, so I have to mess with mine at times as my swim cap pulls up and moves them, but the sound is great and my workouts go by MUCH faster now. I have noticed that my swim pace changes depending on which song is playing, so I'll organize my playlist to have a warmup song, faster paced music, recovery, speed, recovery, speed, cool down, to help regulate my workout.
Just get it, you won't regret it! I would also recommend the Garmin Vivo (I prefer with HR, but either works) so that you don't have to count laps. Turn on the tunes, press start on your watch & swim, you'll adore having the set up!
PROS OF WATERPROOF IPOD SHUFFLE (by Underwater Audio)
- Outstanding sound (far better than FINIS bone conduction system). You'll hear kickin' bass.
- Easy wear (clip the iPod on your suit or goggles instead of having a bulky system sit on the back of your head, as the Neptune does)
- Easy Use (the iPod is just easier to navigate than the new Neptune interface)
- Comfortable Fit (ear pieces come in various sizes)
- Effective Seal (even with flip-turns)
- Plays audio books! (and anything iPods can play--in contrast to Neptune, which can't play audio books)
- Attractive and comes in many different colors (in contrast to Neptunes)
- No need to clip it to your goggles where it can interfere with your goggle seal
- Completely water tight (in comparison to Neptunes, which tends to let water in)
- Far better customer service (in comparison to FINIS, who initially didn't want to honor my warranty)
CONS OF THE WATERPROOF IPOD SHUFFLE (by Underwater Audio)
Apple service was terrible (no fault of this company, but it's part of the bundle). When I first received the device, neither my PC nor my Mac would recognize it in iTunes. The Apple service guy was unable to help--and even told me (incorrectly) that iPod Shuffles could not play audio books (which I wanted to try out). I spent hours (literally) trouble-shooting the device myself and finally getting iTunes to recognize this device. Then I called another two Apple service reps, one of which finally got the audio book onto my iPod. All these technical issues were a real pain for trying to get a new product up and running. I came very close many times to sending it back. But it was well worth the wait.
PROS OF FINIS NEPTUNES (in comparison to the iPod)
The only pro of Neptunes over the iPod that I can see is that the bone conduction system, which renders poor sound (and inconsistent sound when the head is above water vs. below water) at least does not require ear pieces that can irritate swimmers' ears. I personally have had a lot of trouble with ear plugs causing swimmer's ear, etc. However, I use alcohol on the iPod ear pieces each time and so far have not had a problem.
CONS OF FINIS NEPTUNES
- Poor sound. The bone conduction system makes sound muffled, in general, and inconsistent when your head is above water vs. below water. Don't get me wrong--it's great if it's all you have, but the iPod sound is far superior.
- Bulky and awkward to wear (a bulky unit sits on the back of your head). In contrast, the smaller iPod clips to your suit or goggles. The OLD FINIS underwater players were much better in this regard--there was no bulky unit, just the ear pieces.
- Audio pieces can interfere with googles seal, because they are large and clip to goggles (whereas iPod ear pieces go directly into your ears)
- Hard to use (the new Neptune buttons are just harder to press correctly than iPod buttons are).
- You cannot play audio books on a Neptune
- Not water tight. Moisture has seeped into all 3 Neptunes we have owned.
- Difficult customer service. At first they were just hard to contact. Then, they resisted honoring the warranty. All of which I'm grateful for since it pushed us to try the iPod.
