Let me start off by saying I've been waiting a long time for a set of headphones like these. I just got back from my inaugural workout with them by doing a sprint triathlon, and in most ways, they were a pleasure. They stayed in place while I was running and biking like they were glued to my head. While swimming, they did tend to come out a bit while doing freestyle, but I was able to adjust on the go without issue.

The sound was surprisingly great while swimming. To tell you the truth, I expected it to have that 'underwater' garble to the music, but it was crisp, clear, and plenty loud even at about 40% volume. Quality mid-range headphones all around, which is perfect for the gym. These would be great for anyone looking for a waterproof set of headphones to throw in the gym bag, carry to the lake, run in the rain, etc. No longer will I have to worry about destroying my headphones or cell phone when the weather isn't cooperating and I still want to get a workout in.

There was only one issue that I have with them. The underwater tips are fairly aggravating to the ear canal. This isn't something I think can necessarily be avoided, or even changed as far as design goes, but if you hate the feeling of having something in your ear, these aren't for you. They are meant to have a seal, and unfortunately you do sacrifice comfort for utility.

EDIT: After using these for two weeks, I started having major issues with these headphones. First, the sound started coming in and out. It would be very soft, then only the left headphone would work, then back to very soft. Second, the buttons weren't working correctly to change the music (for example the track back button completely died on me). Third, the battery life was abysmal.

I have been looking for a waterproof MP3player headset so I could use it on my personal water craft. And when I came across this unit, I had to try it out for the price of $30.

I had high hopes for this thing since the photos show it off very well, especially on the manufacturer's website, and the frequency response of 20-20kHz is pretty good in such a small package. But when the device arrived, I panicked a bit. The packaging is a plain white box with a couple of barcode stickers. (I hope it's not refurbished/remanufactured/repackaged.) My first impression was shut, because I started questioning the quality of the product inside. Thoughts of this being an amateur player quickly started forming. But after I opened the package and exposed the attractive player, I felt better about the product. I quickly plugged it into my computer via the included USB-to-microUSB cable. While the device was charging, I was dragging in my favorite music (it plays MP3 and WMA formats) just like dragging and dropping files into a flash drive. I noticed that the files which were copied into the player first, played first. The random/shuffle option is not available, which I do miss.

The charging of the player took less than half an hour to get the flashing green light to change into solid, meaning it was fully charged. I'm assuming the battery had some juice in it already, since it charged so quickly. After I reviewed the manual for the controls, I placed the player on my head and turned it on. Again, disappointment set in, as the sound of the music (dance and trance) was mediocre at best due to the complete lack of bass. But I quickly realized that I needed to install the proper ear tips (there are seven pairs to choose from) and once I picked the right ones, the bass of 20hz came through.

OK, so it's been a week of "testing" the product and I must say I am extremely satisfied. I did read every single review in order to make sure I got what I wanted. So after waiting anxiously 5 days for delivery (there was a holiday in between) it finally arrived. So that same day I went swimming, like everyday, only to find out the pool was closed so not only I had to wait one more day to swim but I ended up trying it while showering - Yes! it's cool to shower while listening to music, so that's another plus!

Easy to operate, comes with a bunch of ear plugs so try them out to find out which one suits you better. I am using the smaller triple flange which also works as an ear plug, for some reason the bigger one gave me issues. I am a hardcore swimmer so I was having problems when doing the turn as I was getting water in my ears, which resulted in sound blocking. I solved this by simply securing them with my goggles.

Sound wise, it's quite decent, underwater everything sounds better so I didn't find the bass being an issue, perhaps a little more volume would be nice but if you get the right fit with the ear plugs you should get a very decent sound quality.

Loading songs is a breeze, simply drag them on the WAVE drive and you are ready to go. I have found out that swimming while listening to music improves my endurance as I can swim harder and last longer. I paid $70 but it's well worth it, the customer support is very good and the warranty is fair, just make sure you always properly close the USB cover, otherwise you'll end up with an useless unit.

So go ahead and order it, you'll love it!

P.S. Make sure you register your product so you can download the firmware update which enables shuffle while playing music, sweet!
