Excerpt: I've actually bought 2 of these less than a year ago to replace a lost 2nd gen shuffle. The first didn't work at all right out of the box. B&H handled the return very quickly and professionally. Thanks B&H!!! The replacement seemed to work pretty well for a while, but battery life is about an hour and a half now . I haven't used it all that much and probably wont be using it much more. It doesn't last long enough for many activities.
Waterfi-made Headphones are horrible, Apple-made iPod is ok
6 May 2014
Summary: Headphones are flimsy, so when they stopped working 2 weeks after they arrived, I wasn't really surprised. I wrote an angry review here, and support jumped in immediately asking me to shoot them an email to sort it out. I did that and I also amended my review giving a better score for being so quick. But support didn't answer. I guess, they didn't care as long the score is ok. So now, 2 weeks later. I'm changing it back to 1.
Summary: I purchased this in early March of 2014. I had been using the H20 Audio iPod Shuffle Case, but after a year of relatively heavy use, the case itself broke. So I bought this, as I like the iPod Shuffle and its ease of use. I received the product, loaded it up with music, and jumped in the pool. I swim about 2 miles a day/4-5 days a week. After two days of use, it just stopped working. It wouldn't reset, it wouldn't play, nothing.
Summary: The first one worked well under water but didn't hold a charge. I contacted the company and they were very responsive and helpful and sent me a replacement. The replacement held a charge but didn't work under water, all I got was static. Again I contacted the company and they sent me another replacement. Same problem - it wouldn't hold a charge. I didn't even bother taking it in the water.
