When I recieved the armband, I instantly wanted to open it and try it, easier said than done. Trying to get the waterproof seal open was easy, however, getting my iPod into the case would prove much trickier. Once the lead has been placed into the iPod, the case is very tight to fit the iPod, and then fitting the it through the opening was quite fiddly, however, once it is in, and the iPod lined up to the screen, which is very good, allowing easy use of the touch screen, the case is fantastic. Other than getting my iPod into and out of the case, I have had no problems so far, and have found the case perfect for using in the pool and gym. My only complaint other than the fit, is that I can never seem to get the headphones to stay in for more than 10 lengths, which can be very annoying when training for long distance swims. The headphones are provided with different sized ear plugs, so finding one that fits isn't too much of a problem. Even if the headphones get wet underwater, just blowing excess water out makes them sound fantastic again.
Overall, the positives of this product far outweigh the negatives, and unlike other reviewers, I have had no problems with the headphones not working.
