Great for the gym
on 28 August 2013
I haven't used this product in a swimming pool (have no intention of doing so), so my score reflects 'dry' use only.
I found that an mp3 player which required a lead between earphones and 'box' was always getting in the way on one gym exercise or another. This is brilliant as it's simply the two earpieces plus the cable which is kept tight to your head by a thin rubber bar not shown in the photos. So there's no wobbling around.
It would be great for joggers too, though the little boxes do feature quite keenly while wearing the unit. Having said that, people wear all kind of huge cans whilst out and about these days, so maybe these wouldn't look so stupid after all.
Sound quality is excellent; they don't have a very high volume, but loud enough for the beat to get the body motivated. I get about four hours use before the red light starts growling at me.
Quite a funky charging cradle, but I do worry that it gets misplaced, which would leave the unit unable to be charged.
Good value for a 4Gb unit, when compared to the competition - highly recommended by me!
