When I ordered this, I assumed it would consist of two hinged parts that snap together and close like the LilyPod, which I had been using up until now. Instead, this H20 model is more of a plastic sleeve which fits tightly over the iPod and seals the water out.
The case consists of two parts- a really a snug rubber pouch (the translucent blue part) and a solid black plastic "core" that the iPod snaps into. The blue cover "slides" up over the black part and the iPod. Because the seal has to be water tight, sliding the rubbery pouch on and off the black base can be very hard. Impossible if your hands are wet. The product comes with a little tiny tube of gel which you have to use to grease the seal every few days, and I don't know what happens when the gel runs out... Bottom line? The pouch is NOT for anyone with Carpal Tunnel or Arthritis.
The access to the iPod controls, though, is awesome. It's been so great to be able to control my iPod in the middle of a swim. So that's a feature that makes this product unique and worth the work. However, there is no access to the "on/off" switch, which means taking the darn case apart after every swim if I wanted to have any battery left the next time I got into the pool.
The good news is that I found out how to out the shuffle to sleep- just pause it. That's it. Next time you get to the pool, press "play" and you're all set to go. No dead battery, same song as last time you swam.
Overall? Worth the work, but I'm not sure if the case will remain a tight fit or what will happen when the gel runs out. Time will tell. My Lilypod lasted YEARS, though, so... we'll see!
All functions work
Does not leak
The auto off on the shuffle does not work because it thinks headphones are attached so you must be sure to hit pause when leaving the pool
It cannot be charged while in the case. This could easily be fixed via a small male to female jumper cable.
My one disappointment was that the iPod actually has to come out of the case to be charged! This was a huge design flaw in my mind. There are plenty of cables on the market that will charge and sync the shuffle with a standard earphone jack and not the cumbersome base that comes with the iPod. Regardless, though, this product doesn't allow you to use those. Everytime you want to charge or sync you have to break the watertight seal and pull the iPod out.
A better approach would have been to make sure that the headphone adapter has the proper "4-pin" contacts for charging and syncing that the standard 2-pin contacts for stereo headsets. It wouldn't have altered the product size or functionality and would have allowed the unit to stay completely waterproof without having to constantly break the seal to charge and sync.
