    Some specifics: The box itself is very light, easy to operate, and about the size of a box of matches, or the video screen of an iPod Classic. It's also really light.
    The headphones are robust, with three sizes of earplug, which is useful.
    This machine works - I have to say, it's great to be able to swim with audio. But you're reading this trying to find out what the downside is, so I'll tell you - you will spend time fiddling with the earphones. I have reasonably large ears - not freakshow, but I'm a tall guy and they are in proportion to my head, and they took three swims to get in properly. And in so doing, were a little uncomfortable. Now I'm used to them, and have the correct ear plug size on them, I am loving the sound, which is a little better than radio - you won't be getting amazing bass response here unless you ram those suckers so far in the tips come off (this happened to me at one point - tweezers and a lot of calm!)
    With all this said, those are the only downside. Light, easy to use, and a lot of fun. And, once you're practiced at using them, great to show off in the pool with. I have already had two people ask me where I got them from, and it's only been a week or so. Recommended.

    I was really worried about buying this after reading all the reviews, but I'm a fat, middle-aged arthritic woman who needs every possible incentive to do some exercise. When my husband told me these things existed, I figured that it was my one chance to make joining the gym an almost tolerable prospect. So after buying more swimsuits, goggles, hats and towels than anyone can ever need, there was nowhere else to go but here. And I'm so glad I did. It's a 'Does what it says on the tin' product. The software is rubbish, but my son showed me you can do everything you need to do via Windows Media Player instead, so that's ok. It's annoying that it will only play things in the order you put them on, and in artist order within that, and there's no display, but you will have already learned that from these other reviews and from the product description, so no news value there. But it's transformed my life. It's no longer boring to swim up and down. It's fun. The thing itself is pretty cheap, so you can't expect more than that, and I've been evangelising about it to my friends, so I'm a satisfied customer. I suspect that there's a love-it-or-hate-it quality to this thing and if your ears are the wrong shape or something, it must be pretty frustrating, but try wearing a swim cap over your ears and things may be better. I don't have a problem, but I do have a LOT of swimming hats........

    Please do not make the same mistake I made when choosing this product. I did all my research, reading all the reviews and studying all of the pictures both on Amazon and on the Speedo site and came to the conclusion that this product, and in particular the earphone design (which look like they will stay in your ears while swimming), was the one to choose. Imagine my disappointment when I opened the box to find that they have completely redesigned the earphones; they now resemble any standard headphones, with rounded rubberised ear buds (not the ridged ones pictured) and remain in your ears for exactly zero seconds in or out of the water...
    I am returning this item to eCom Cameras who have been very helpful and understanding of the issue (a true measure of a retailer); I have also complained directly to Speedo who said these headphones were replaced due to people complaining that the old (still pictured) version got stuck in their ears (lucky them!!). Steer clear if you actually want to hear any music when swimming!!

    The headphones sound like listening to music in a tin can - and that's without going into the water. (I know what good earbuds sound like as I have a pair of Atrio M8s.) The main problem is that it is impossible to insert the buds deeply enough into the ear to channel the sound correctly. I tried some extra long silicon plugs (from my Atrios) on the end and this dramatically improved the sound. In the pool this lasted two laps and after that no more sound. The bases of the earbuds are too wide to insert into the entrance of the ear canal and they have a long rigid "pole" attached to lead up to the hook going around the ear - also blocking further penetration. This makes for an incredibly painful experience if you try to put any pressure on it (swim cap etc) to hold everything in place. In short ergonomically the earbuds were designed by total morons. The little MP3 unit is very practical and fine to use but I will have to find other earbuds - no question about it. The software supplied does not work correctly as it tries to constantly access my floppy drive. It is still useable but I will need to disconnect my floppy if I'm going to use it. All in all not to be recommended. The engineers who designed this device have obviously not used it or they just don't care. Sad that "Speedo" took this on board - you tend to trust a name like that.

    After writing this review I discovered why there is a problem. On the packaging there is a picture of silicon ear inserts that are shaped like christmas trees with several ridges and are quite long. When I purchased the product this was covered up with a piece of paper with another image showing small ear inserts -as were inside the box. It is obvious that Speedo have changed the inserts and that they are having problems.
