Top positive review
Better than other similar products – but not hassle-free
22 January 2018
I bought these after a long consideration and looking at all the different products on Amazon. I needed them for swimming in the swimming pool, and was very cautious due to bad experience with similar products in the past.
After using this for more than half a year I feel I am ready to write an adequate review.
The headphones are good compared to other products. However, if you’ve never tried swimming headphones before there is a very high chance you will be disappointed. The truth of the matter is, they are fiddly and far from being comfortable – all because of the waterproof feature.
They do work underwater, and are of good build quality - I have used them for months and they have been fine so far.
They are easy to care for, I have not had to do anything special or dry them in any special way or wash them in any special solutions.
The sound quality is decent and better than other products I have tried.
If you are using this for sports (not under water) – they are great as there are no cables to mess around with. I love these for gardening.
It’s very easy to put your music on – simply connect to the computer and copy/paste.
The battery lasts a good amount of time – to me this means several swim sessions without recharging.
No matter how much you try, water can and will get under the ear buds. You will end up having to take regular breaks just to take the water out and put the earbuds back on. Take your time and try the different sizes – you will find that with the right size on, you will last longer before water gets in.
If you are using the waterproof earbuds, this will significantly reduce the music volume. In the pool, I listen to max volume and just about hear the music. I normally listen to much louder volumes. It is better than no music at all – but definitely not loud enough.
It will take a while to remember where all the buttons are located – I still press the wrong buttons.
They are sometimes a pain to get on - especially due to the larger size earbuds which keep water away. You have to really take your time and make it fit, otherwise water gets in immediately.
I hope this helps you make an informative choice.
