Swimbuds Waterproof earbuds have it all: beautiful sound, comfort and ease of use. These signature short cord headphones have an extra-short cord that is designed to stay put during tight flip turns and the most rigorous aquatic workout. That means fewer interruptions and more swimming. They are uniquely suited for swimmers, triathletes and water sports enthusiasts; no more wrapping long lengths of cord around goggle straps and Velcro pieces! There is less drag in water and no loose cord loops to get caught in gear or moving body parts.
Swimbuds earbuds create a waterproof seal that enables sound in and keeps water out. Three different sizes of earbuds are included so you can create a custom fit. An additional set of round earbuds is included that doesn't create a seal for use in paddle boarding, kayaking, and other water sports.
Waterproof to IPX8 waterproof standard
For safety reasons, please don't use these, or any earbuds that create a tight seal, below 3.05 meters.

BUT, I do admit that I do have two "secrets" that I use for ALL of the headsets--here goes. FIRST, i take a TINY bit of chapstick on my finger and work it around my ear canal before I insert the earbud...makes it easier to get a seal without hurting my ear. Second, I take a silicone ear plug like Macks (http://www.amazon.com/Macks-Pillow-Silicone-Earplugs-Value/dp/B000067NMJ) and just squish right over the earbud. It totally seals the whole set-up and you can swim "forever" without the seal breaking. I know it is a bit of a "work around"--but it works wonders even if it takes a few extra minutes to set up. For me, it is worth it to have a swim without having to fiddle around with the headset.
I virtually never write reviews, but I think this product deserved the time.
I contacted customer support but the only thing they offered me was a $20 coupon on earbuds on their site. They said that's all they could do since the earbuds were "5 months out of warranty." The earbuds would still cost $20 after the coupon... $20-40 every 6 months just isn't realistic to me. I'll either try the other (much cheaper $5-$11) earbuds and deal with the longer cord or go without music altogether.
The ipod combo is a good price but just be aware you may be replacing the earbuds in 6-months with regular use.
The earbuds worked reasonably well while they worked. You have to be forgiving on some of the sound issues... but hey you're listing to your music underwater. As other people have mentioned, the rubber ends also get loose after a while and you have to remove them from your ear very carefully or you end up with a bud stuck in your ear. You do have to make sure the buds are tight in your ear as any water will cause the sound to be intermittent (i.e. when your ear is out of the water while breathing).
While it's tempting to pick up another set, given that this set lasted me almost two years, I can't help but look at the price point of $40. For that, it's almost worth picking up some cheapo Walmart earbuds and attempting to waterproof them myself. If/when those fail, I'll be out ten bucks instead of forty.
Pros: When they worked as advertised, they were great- didn't come out of my ear canal, and had a good snug fit. The cord length is appropriate when paired with a goggle-mounted mp3 player.
Cons: One of the earbuds no longer functions. Silicone bits can potentially become lodged in the ear.
