Sound quality fine - as long as you're not swimming! The problem is that the earphones will not stay in when I'm swimming . Have even tried using a swim cap to keep them in place but even that doesn't seem to work for more than a few lengths. If you're ambling gently up and down the pool doing a sedate breaststroke and not putting your head below water , these would be great. If you're attempting anything more energetic , I think you may have trouble. I've passed them onto my kids , who think they're great for mucking about with in the pool.

I bought these buds to replace the terrible buds supplied with the excellent waterproof case (Thumbs Up iSwim ). They work well ... you can swim under water and listen to your mp3 player with good sound. Why only 4 stars? Because the sound isn't as good as with my Creative Labs buds ... but they're not waterproof :( However, being able to swim lengths and listen to my mp3 player makes up for this and now I wouldn't go to a pool without them.

Product feels cheap and delicate. One headphone doesn't work and the other has sound quality so poor I would rather risk using a pair of cheaper normal headphones as there doesn't seem to be anything special to make them waterproof. AVOID! Buy a cheaper pair instead.

I use these with my normal mp3 in a waterproof pouch , as i have been very disappointed with waterproof mp3. These earphones are really brilliant. The quality of sound in and out of water is examplary. I cant even hear myself exhale in the water. I have changed the little soft plastic things that lodge in the earhole and replaced them by longer ones,which came with the earphones belonging to the pouch, so they are really wedged tight in. This would be my only comment: that the little plastic things might not stay in. but then, maybe I have funny ears!!
I am delighted and could not recommend them enough.

Contrary to the product description, these headphones are not comfortable, the sound quailty is terrible and one ear was much loader than the other. Absolutely horrible.

I bought these earphones following the deaths of two other sets in fairly quick succession. The first were the H2O Surge Sportwrap (which were bought to use in the gym/ swimming pool but had a very short life span and frankly, provided an overall very disappointing experience). Secondly, some Sennheisers (that I had had for years and were ultimately superceded by some Beats Audio earphones that came free with my phone, and whilst the Sennheisers were fine for the gym they were not waterproof). It is on the H2O set that I draw my comparisons for this review.

Test 1 - The Gym. I should start by stating that generally I am a person who struggles to keep earbud style headphones in, regardless of their size, shape or method by which they attach to your ears. Therefore I was pleasantly surprised when I tried these out for the first time on the cross trainer. They wedged in nice and snuggly, all external sound was pretty much silenced and they survived the whole 30 minutes without falling out! I'm fairly certain this is one of the first times this has ever happened.

Test 2 - Out for a Run. After the success of the gym, I had great hopes for an outdoor run. Sadly, it didn't pan out quite so well. After a mile or so, the left earbud worked its way out and thereafter, the rest of the run was spent plugging it back in every few minutes. Frustrating, I'm sure you'll agree, but I believe this might come down (in part) to the t-shirt I was wearing. It sounds a little stupid, but it's like the cut of it prevented movement of the wires leading to unnecessary `tugging' which wasn't caused by the previous t-shirt. I think a simple clip attached to the wire might solve this and is something I am investigating.

Test 3 - The Swimming Pool.

Pros:
Sound quality is quite good (when dry)
long cable

Cons:
DOESN'T stay on very well when underwater
One of the headphones stopped working after a while, extremely annoying when you're trying to swim and listen to music

It works great if you want to listen to music whilst showering, but not really suitable for swimming where you have to submerge your head.

I swim everyday at my gym and have always wanted to listen to music but haven't been able to. I bought these earphones with an optimistic view to see if they would solve my problem and they did exactly what it said on the tin!! I've been using my waterproof headphones for around 6 weeks now and cant fault them in anyway. A great idea for swimming fanatics like myself :-)
