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: 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 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.
Summary: If you swim a lot, like I do, don't expect these to last. I've been using these for three years and probable on my fourth pair. The first thing to go is the left or right bud. After that they go downhill fast. I don't care about swim quality, I just want some nice music when I'm spending hours staring at a blue line in a pool. These are still the best I've found but I have no long-term expectations from them.
Summary: These headphones are the only ones fitting in the H2O case and they fit good; they arrived on time but I have experienced that they loose stereo capacity very soon, so I try to always keep them on stock in my house and I replace them every 6 months.
Summary: I purchased these headphones after a few mishaps with my previous headphones. I prefer the style that go into your ear, and I have electrocuted myself on a few occasions by my excessive sweating with the non waterproof version of these, so I decided to go all out and purchase these ones. Came in original packaging and no problems with finding the right ear piece. Took them into the tub and found they have GREAT underwater quality!
