I've tried waterproof headphones before with little success - these are the best I've come across - be prepared to experiment with different in-ear fittings to get something that fits well and is comfortable - I ware a swim cap which helps, and swim 1500m front crawl for about half an hour and these are really good.
These earphones work really well for me. I love the short cord which attaches easily to my iPod shuffle. There are a lot of different size attachment buds but I find the ones they arrived with fit well. They stay in well for my lap training sessions which are usually for an hour 3 or 4 times a week. Have had them for a few weeks now and no problems so far. The sound is exceptional compared to my previous earphones. I recommend them to anyone who is tired of fiddling around with long chords and attachments that don’t stay on.
Not usually given to writing a reviews, however, I'm so pleased with these headphones that I thought I should allay any concerns of people looking for waterproof headphones and interested in these.
Firstly the earbuds come with every possible rubber earpiece you can imagine so if none of these fit you you must be an alien! Congratulations to H2O for doing this as it must eat into their bottom line but it makes all the difference as the fitting is so crucial with waterproof headphones.
So got in the pool for a 4o minute swim (not hat) and have to say I had to turn my iPod shuffle down a bit as Im not used to such a clear and punchy sound. They stayed in for the full swim without discomfort and the short cable was a nice thought, I find that a much better solution to long cables. so all in all I am really pleased with these. I would recommend then highly so far. Time will tell how robust they are.
They work perfectly. Yes, they are a bit expensive but if you go to the swimming pool often, it is worth the money. Good quality of sound but please make sure you follow the guidelines in the short user guide as they give you good tips on how to make the headphones work on the first time with a great sound.
