IPod works fine, however the headphones do not keep water out ...

Tennessee Ted, Amazon
30 August 2014
  • Summary: IPod works fine, however the headphones do not keep water out of my ears and all I can hear is water sloshing around. have resorted to having custom made ear plugs designed to fit with the ear buds at a cost of $200 (your local audiologist can do this by making a mold of your ear opening). Will see how they work with these, but if you are a serious lap swimmer and do flip turns, don't expect much from this.

This is close to what I was expecting but it ...

Cathy L. "Greatwhirlwind", Amazon
31 July 2014
  • Summary: This is close to what I was expecting but it does have a few issues. Here are two major ones which may in fact be the same problem. The sound is inconsistent. It starts out loud and over time starts to fade. I'm not clear on why this happens. It could be that the ear buds are becoming looser and water gets in the ear. The second problem is that the ear buds are constantly falling out. Both these problems mean that I am constantly adjusting things.

Ipod works great but headphone not so much

Roxi, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: I got this ipod to make my swim workouts more enjoyable. I swim consistently 3 to 4 hours were week and I have been using it for about 4 months. The ipod works great however the headphones have already lost hearing in one ear. It is also very tricky how you get them to stay in, sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. I would buy the ipod again but the headphones I would get another brand.

Waterfi Waterproof Headphones

Mike Caudill, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: Not very happy with the headphones doing my laps in the pool. The sound was off/on during my workout. I had to stop between laps to clear them and jam them back into my ears. The sound still remained muffled. I stopped during flipturns to see if that would help. Nope! I have been on the internet reviewing replacement options, but had not found a suitable alternative yet.

headset is awful

Jiri N, Amazon
9 November 2013
  • Summary: iPod shuffle is great, tiny and works really well, but the headset is simply awful - one of the ear buds stops playing almost every time, when I contacted the seller they recommended to play it loud and tap it on my palm to "unstick" it - while this works, its short term temporary solution and really does not solve my problem at all small update few months later.... kudos to the seller for really great customer service, they tried to help as much as they could.

Unit is great; headphones are horrible

HC "HC", Amazon
28 June 2013
  • Summary: I've used this product now a couple of times in the water while lap swimming. The waterproof iPod unit works great, no complaints there. However, the waterproof headphones are worthless. Now I will say I used the headphones without a swim cap because I don't normally wear a swim cap (hate them actually). Once I got in the water and had the player on with the headphones in my ears I noticed the audio quality was poor.

ear/water interface

Richard Zweig, Amazon
25 May 2013
  • Summary: I like hearing music when I swim, but find it impossible to keep water from coming between the headphones and my external auditory canals. I must frequently stop and readjust the headphones. No amount of jiggling the headphones seems to prevent this. Otherwise, I am happy with the product.

Worked great at first......

Amanda Woodward, Amazon
2 May 2013
  • Summary: I've only owned it for a little while and I'm having problems. The lock button keeps sticking, so I can't skip songs or change the volume. Very frustrating. I just contacted the seller to see about exchanging it for one that actually works.
