5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for swimming 20 April 2013
Colour Name:Black
USAGE CONDITIONS:
I have been using the Walkman for four weeks now. I am swimming every second day for 1.5 hrs - all strokes but majorly front-crawl and backstroke and some fly and breaststroke also.
I'm a competing approx. four times a year. So, one could say I'm not a pro-athlete but not a pure amateur who swims for fitness purposes only.

I'm telling this to you so you know under what exact conditions the player is used and how it performs.

GETTING STARTED:
When I bought the player and used it for the first time, I was able to reproduce the malfunction other reviewers describe here.
If too much water gets into your ear it gets into the player too and as water isn't particularly good in transmitting sound waves, the volume goes down to a level that I would describe as: the TV/Radio is playing in the background.. It's there but you don't really pay attention to it.
You don't have to let the player dry out over night, with some firm tapping as described in the manual (don't be too shy.. it has to be quite firm without being too hard) you are able to get some of the water out immediately and continue at 75% of the maximum volume - which is quite a lot as the player gets very loud.

The second time I was using the player this issue happened to me much later in my swim-session when I tumble-turnded and pushed of the wall quite hard (We were doing 100m individual medley sprints - for those who wondered). One of the earpieces fell out and some water went in again, the volume went down and I was staying at the end of the lane tapping the water out for a minute or so. Adjusting the strap that gives additional tightness for the player helped and it didn't happen again until the end of the session.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing for swimming and gym 14 May 2013
By LisaM
Colour Name:White
I have tried two of the Xsories Aquanotes and had to send them both back as they both had product defects where it wouldn't play more than 10 songs and I couldn't switch the shuffle off. I then found this item and it was only 10 extra. I am so glad I gave up on the Xsories as this product is more amazing than I could have imagined. Immensely fast charge (you can do a quick charge for 3mins to get 60mins!).

So easy to transfer my music too - no need to worry about the format, it has played everything I have copied over from my Apple Mac so far.

Very light, nice design that does sit close to your head - so less resistance against the water which could make the ear phones come out.

The first time I swam it was a freaky experience. Started the music playing and put my head in the water to do Front Crawl. There was NO change in the audio at all.. If I didn't know better I wouldn't believe the were under water.

First time, 20 lengths before I got water in my ear and the volume dropped. As per the instructions tapping them did work. However, I then did start to have problems as my ear was then wet. 2nd visit I took a face cloth with me (I have a bag at the pool to keep another pair of goggles to hand/ear plugs etc so the face cloth was dry). When the problem happened again. I tried the tapping, didn't quite work so I followed the other instructions to take off the ear plug, wipe the end. I took the opportunity to dry my ear first and I was off as good as new.

I then tried changing the earplugs to see if it made any difference. I must admit, I couldn't see any difference in the size but wow - I'm now off and running.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic underwater goodness. 16 May 2013
By S. Minchin VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Blue|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Seeing as I'm genetically half fish (on my dads side, don't ask), I jumped at this clever little gizmo when it popped up. They do what they say on the tin and work underwater. Not flawlessly, as several other reviewers have pointed out, but they FAR exceeded my expectations, and a few sharp taps is enough to clear the sound when water does get in.

The sound quality is clear and crisp with good levels of bass and EQ in general, and the watertight nature of the earbuds means they are rather good at keeping out external noise, which is particularly good for gym workouts, especially if like me you can't stand the cheesy euro-trance and pop rubbish they tend to play for "motivation" at gyms. I've always preferred drowning out that garbage with some solid death metal, so whether on the treadmill or in the pool, these do the trick. I did find it rather disconcerting doing swimming laps to the dulcet tones of Slayer, but once I got used to the weirdness of listening to music in the pool, I found the whole experience to be very therapeutic, and ended up floating on my back, relaxing, and blasting my eardrums with the new Anaal Nathrakh record.

Mint.
