Summary: Like other reviewers have stated. These just don't last. I don't even use them in the pool. I use to jog and on my bike. For that they are awesome! Great design, stay in place, ear buds block wind and noise and the curled cord....AWESOME. This should be manditory on all headphones. NO TANGLING!!!!! But.....yes, after several months, one of the earbuds will just stop working. I'm on my second pair. I like them that much.
Summary: I did not realize these were not wireless. I was looking at wireless headphones then stumbled across these because of "recommended" products and ordered them. My fault for not reading deeper. The big problem is what are you supposed to connect them too? My phone and ipod aren't waterproof, so what good are waterproof WIRED headphones?
Summary: Not a great amount if base response, but better than others. My biggest issue with these is the molded headband. The plastic half-circle pulls the ear buds down and catches on shirts, hats, etc. the behind the ear cuffs never stay out and I often find that one side or the other is riding halfway up my head. All in all not great, but waterproof!! So a solid 1 outta 3.
Summary: I purchase about 25-50 items a year on Amazon. I have used these headphones now for 2 years and I love them. However, I use them in a way that allows far more usage than most buyers. I also purchased an Apple shuffle from Waterfi (a company that waterproofs electronics) and clip the shuffle to the headphones. I wrapped the chords tightly around the headphones so I only use them when working out.
Summary: I purchased this set for myself. The manufacturing is cheap and not intended to last a long time. The wire kinked after several uses and now the sound is not consistent. I recommend this set for anyone on a tight budget and not expecting long-term use out of it.
