As my first pair of swimming headphones, I must say I am impressed with these. I was a little skeptical about “swimming headphones”. I didn’t know what to think about them. They would be amazing to use while swimming, because it gets boring after a few laps. I kept thinking these will not sound good when my ears are under water and how can headphones be waterproof to the degree that you can swim with them. I got these to help answer my questions. I needed something to do while swimming(in a pool all by myself with no one to race or speak to between laps).
These headphones have 8GB of built in memory which is perfect for swimming. I threw in a bunch of music and was ready to go. When I put them on at the pool it sounded great and I was pumped to jump in. When I got in the pool the music sounded exactly the same. The quality of the sound barely changed; at some point the rubber in my ear moved around a bit and I couldn’t hear the music well. But if I pushed them back in, the clear sound was back. These headphones also have great volume, you can make it very loud and it still sounds great.
It is also very comfortable to wear. I wear them on the back of my neck and it doesn’t bother me when swimming. The headset is shaped in a way that gets tight around your neck so that it doesn’t move around or fall off. It stays on my neck and I am able to continue swimming without thinking about it. One thing I did not completely enjoy is that the buttons(prev/next) are a little difficult to press. When I hold the headset in my hand its easy to click the buttons, but when I am wearing them in the middle of a lap I find it tricky to press the buttons. I can’t find the button so easily and the shape of the button isn’t the ideal angle for the angle of my fingers.
Overall these headphones are great for swimming(and other watersports/activities). The package comes with a few different sizes of earbuds. I will continue swimming with these headphones and keep adding new songs to it.
