To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Worked great at first. When I first got this mp3 player in, I immediately plugged it into my pc and loaded up a few songs. It was easy to click and drag files onto the device with no issues. I took the player to the pool to try it out. Headphones were surprisingly comfortable and worked very well. Sound quality wasn't top notch, but it certainly worked as intended. Being under the water seemed to make the sound quality better than in air. I'm not sure of the science behind that, but it was great. It made my morning swim very enjoyable. Bonus, it kept water out of my ears too! Buttons worked well, everything was as I had hoped. When I went home, I unplugged the headphones and left it on a table for the day.
I came back later that night to load up more songs and it won't connect to my pc anymore. Driver says "Device Descriptor Request Failed". I haven't touched the device in over 6 hours, I hoped it would've dried out by now. It refuses to read. Even after updating, uninstalling, reinstalling, with no avail. So I'm stuck with the few songs I threw on with no chance to change or add on. I only hope it can still charge or it'll be a one time use player. Geez, That'd be a waste of $60...
Great initially, but running into software problems after one use. Not so great... If I had thrown everything I wanted on there at first, I don't think I'd recognize the problem so soon. Especially since it developed this issue after a single use in water.
DO NOT BUY THIS YOU WILL WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! Can not get it to sync with my music, everything is in MP3 format, but just as you start the the sync the USB ejects and stops the sync. After hours of trying different ways to sync and finally giving up I am out $60 and left with no response from the company that made it and Amazon. Extremely disappointing that this was a featured item and that it has so many great reviews - they are all lies.
Update on product: After several attempts and many hoops to contact the seller of this product I was given a refund (which was 100% deserved considering the product I was sold did not work) and the seller offered to send a replacement. The replacement took a couple of tries to sync to the music and will only sync 1-2 songs at a time. Can't speak to how the quality is under water considering I recieved the product right before a global pandemic and all the pools are closed. Posting an update now because I got a harassing message from the seller saying that its "so sad" that it's been 3 months without updating my review. 2 stars because the hassel of this whole thing was a waste of my time, but I have a product that can load music. Had I known it was going to be a bad experience from the get go I would have just picked something else. Customer service is terrible considering they guilt you into updating your review after a terrible experience.
I purchased this item to help me focus on my swim regime. I am going through chemo, so my routine isn’t crazy hardcore. I chose this for the price and functionality. The sound was ok, loading music was a pain. It wouldn’t read the majority of the files. The ear plug was shoddy and allowed water in on one side. The first time use was a constant stop and restart just to readjust the fitting. The sound was average, no real complaints there. Unfortunately, this isn’t proving to be useful in the water for me.
Ratings Price 5 stars Battery life 5 stars Fit 1 star (keep having to stop and re-adjust) Sound quality 1 star Programming and ease of use 4 stars. Easy to drop and drag files into the MP3. Easy to adjust sound and forward to next song or repeat while swimming. Again kept having to adjust earphones and cord (typically on swim turns) Unfortunately I will be requesting to return this item. This will be my first ever Amazon return.
First time using this in the pool today and it worked for one song, then stopped. Even when the unit was dry, it stopped playing music. It was good for a few months of working in a pool every weekend not sure if it is worth the price for one season.
The product developed a problem with its ability to connect to any computer via USB and I can no longer load music onto it. I have had it for less than 6 months and will be returning it. Also, the earphones provided are fairly temperamental and don't really work if you get so much as a drop of water into them. This is pretty easy to do if you remove them at all while in the water, even if not submerged. I would not purchase this device again.
