SYRYN and Swimbuds have both far exceeded my expectations. The sound quality is as optimal as I could hope, and is hugely exceptional for the cost. The instruction booklet was very clear and concise and easy to follow. I use Amazon Music as my go-to after ditching iTunes some years ago (very long story), and every song I have ever purchased through Amazon was very easy to transfer over to my Music folder on my computer (download the desktop Amazon Music app to make it super easy), then it was just drag and drop into the folder for the SYRYN.
The device itself is even lighter than my NuDolphin was, and I like that the clip is wide, long, but lies very close to the device. I hook-slide it onto my swim cap and it doesn't budge! The ear buds are phenomenal. They keep all the water out of my ears and keep the sound quality clear and true through flip turns and depths up to 10ft (that's as deep as our pool is).
As to the other reviews, I'm not sure why they've had such a hard time with the functions, especially since it's spelled out so easily in the booklet (like, 5th grader would say "duh").
To shuffle songs, simply press and hold the forward and reverse buttons simultaneously until the light indicator switches from red to purple/blue back to red again. To turn off shuffle, repeat.
Volume: Press and hold the up/down button (co-located with the reverse/forward buttons... up and reverse, down and forward... up and down are in relation to the audio jack placement) until you achieve the desired sound level.
Play/pause: self explanatory
Turn on/off: press and hold the play/pause button until the indicator light turns on or off.
Seriously, you cannot beat this player for the simplicity, functionality, quality of sound, craftsmanship, etc.
I'm definitely glad I went with this player instead of the Diver or the costlier options. Plus, the company who stocks this is a home-run, family-run business.
And no, I got absolutely nothing in return for this review.
After 2 sessions, I'm very happy with the product. All 4 strokes, flip turns and even starts are no problem. While the iPod is notorious for flipping around when going fast, the Syryn stayed put, likely due to the design of the clip attachment. The Syryn is larger and doesn't look as sleek but I noticed less drag vs. the iPod (which is usually flipped around 90 degrees after a turn, so it's dragging).
The most interesting difference between the two products is that the SYRYN appears to have been designed from the ground up as a waterproof MP3 player, while the WaterFi iPod is an aftermarket retrofit. From years of experience as an engineer, retrofits always have some design flaw.
Case in point the buttons. The iPod has 6 separate buttons (play/pause, vol up, vol down, forward track, back track, and mode) and 1 switch (on/off/shuffle), each exposing a different place for water to enter. The Waterfi retrofit is done via injecting silicon which creates the waterproofing. This makes it difficult to push the buttons and with each push of the buttons the silicone is moved around. What I noticed, after 2 years of use, is that water drops come out of the iPod when the center button is pushed leaving me to suspect that it has started to loose its waterproofing.
Conversely, Syryn has chosen to address the waterproofing by limiting it to 3 buttons (the 3 have duplicate functionality depending on length of press), covered by a single waterproof cover. Some people complained that buttons with shared functionality is a problem because it is not intuitive. It might not be intuitive, but it is smart engineering as it reduces entry points for water. In addition, since the Syryn uses a single cover there is no silicone degradation issue and the buttons are easy to press.
My guess is that, even though the Syryn warranty is only 1 year (vs. 2 for Waterfi), it will last longer than the iPod. If it does not, I will come back and update this comment.
- 8 GB storage (as opposed to 2 GB on iPod Shuffle).
- Half of the price of the cheapest water-proof iPod Shuffle.
- Much louder volume.
- Long battery life.
- Superior ear buds. They came with a short cable which makes it tangle-free (can be extend if needed).
- Good clip. Very easy to attach to my goggles and can be rotated.
- No iTunes needed. To upload just drag and drop the MP3 files.
- No AAC support so it can't play old music files I bought from iTunes. Nowadays I buy my digital music either from Amazon or Google so most of my
library are MP3 but still it would be nice if it has AAC support.
- It comes with a pretty bad goggles. I wish they have a cheaper option without the goggles.

It continued working and stayed in place on the goggle strap through any number of tumble turns but I found I was often getting water in my ear, stopping the sound that side, so I changed my technique to a quick turnaround which isn't a tumble and goes less deep - this has meant I rarely have to stop to get water out of my ear and is just as fast.
Loading tunes was easy - and I'm no techno wizard! There's plenty of space for hundreds of tunes, but I've not tried it with podcasts yet. It's also easy to skip forward or back. When the device is switched on, it always seems to default to a medium volume, so I press and hold the volume button when I've switched on, usually to take it up to the maximum volume (which takes a few seconds to be sure). Then there's no problem at all hearing even quiet parts of tunes in a noisy pool.
I will definitely get this product again if needed.
The package arrived quickly and is an impressive box of goodies: headphones, underwater MP3 player, a few different types of buds, sealing gel for a perfect fit, plus googles, hair cap and hair protectant. Excellent value!
It was quick and simple to transfer music to the MP3 player, and charge it. Finding the right fit with the ear buds took two trials: the first trial was with one set of buds which just weren't the ideal fit. Try each of them, and give them a little tug to find the ones best for you. The second type used were much better, and using the goggles strap to help keep them close to the head made all the difference. The user (my husband) moves quite abruptly and regularly in the water, with head rotations for breathing and flip turns between laps. The earbuds stay in perfectly! But if your movement were more jerky, you could use the swim cap or fit goo for an even more secure fit.
Use has been every day for about half an hour, for a week so far. No recharge needed yet, but can't comment on long-term durability. No sign of any wear or tear yet!
Only negative feedback from the user is that the maximum volume could be a bit higher. I personally could not stand it any higher when I tried them out outside of the pool, but perhaps the splashing and under-water factor makes decreases the volume heard when swimming.
When I received these and tried them out at home to check they worked, I was disappointed with the sound quality. So I decided to try them in the water and was massively surprised.
When swimming, with all the noise of the water, it doesn't seem to matter that the sound quality isn't great. Just the fact that you can listen to music whilst swimming is amazing!
However, I have a problem with one of the ear bud tips as it is not formed properly or was squashed in the box, so it lets in water and is useless. You get lots of different tips, but unfortunately, the large tree tip that was squashed, is the only one that fits my big ears!
If your looking for a cheap way to listen to music whilst swimming, then this is a great option. Just don't expect the sound quality to be great.
The sound quality is fine, and it's easy to operate - the buttons are multipurpose when you press and hold e.g. for volume control. In the pool, I was at first a bit concerned that one side sounded muffled, but it turned out I had a bit of water in the rubber part of the earbud - giving it a flick resolved the issue. There's an extension cord to make the earphones longer, but I found I was fine clipping the MP3 player to my swimming costume without this. The earbuds stayed in well for me (I use the smallest size). Getting music onto the player was straightforward, and I liked that there was a .pdf of the instruction manual. As this contains information about doing a system reset etc it's good to have that available electronically when the paper copy has inevitably wandered off.
The only downside is that there's no mechanism to scroll through a track, so if you are intending to use this to listen to unabridged audiobooks or similar it could be challenging. However, for breaking up the monotony with music/podcasts I think this is great!
It works extremely well. It is actually waterproof. The headphones are comfortable and transmit a loud enough signal for me to hear my music tracks and podcasts clearly when I'm thrashing through the water.
The file organising software is clunky and needs improvement. It works but I could design better.
Now, swimming isn't so boring. Often I forget I'm swimming. I always lose count of the number of lengths that I have completed, so now I gauge my exercise by the duration of my playlist.
Also, many people stare at the mp3 player stuck on the back of my head on my goggles strap. Some ask what it is. Be prepared for some enquiring looks from other swimmers.
It was easy to transfer music onto the player from my laptop & so far have had no issues with the player.
The customer service is excellent & very quick to respond to queries.
I am generally happy and have no complaints.
