Summary: Hate these things. The battery life sucks the most, it wont get out of shuffle mode so i cant rewind a track, the fit inside your ear is horrible, the on/off button is a pain having to push and wait 5 seconds for everything, they power themselves on and play music everytime i plug them in to usb. Overall these are junk compared to my old sony headphones, guess i'll rebuy the sony's and just use these as a back up pair or sell them on ebay.
Summary: Id give it a 7/10, Under water its not perfect but it works. SOmetimes you get the muffled sound as water gets between unit and eardrum but the under water ear buds do a pretty good job of evacuating most of the water. A shuffle option would also be nice on a device like this.
My boyfriend loves these... given as a gift to him.

Summary: My boyfriend was hesitant at first to wear these because he said they felt loose. But when he put his goggles strap over the headband, they stayed in place. He said the volume was excellent and he enjoys swimming with them. Wish I had bought these instead of the more expensive well-known mp3 player for 3 times as much money.
Summary: This device works nicely, but I am frustrated that it will not play a downloaded Audible.com mp3. To quote Audible.com "At this moment Pyle is not on the list of Audible ready devices." I emailed Pyle about this, and they appeared uninterested in getting their device to be an audlble ready device. This is disappointing.
Summary: There is not a lot of instruction on how to download music onto it and, of course, it is not super easy to put songs from itunes onto it (which I blame Apple for, not Pyle), but once I figured how to get music onto it I have really enjoyed it. I love being able to swim laps and listen to music.
