"When I first tried these on I put in ear plugs and vacuumed the living room rug. Even though it didn't seem loud I had to touch the vacuum to be sure it was on! In the pond they perform fine like the music is part of the water. I turn it on and forget it. I have done 4 miles of crawl with this thing and haven't had to adjust it once.

After about 6 hours of use it seems, at least I hope, that mine are defective as they have started buzzing kind of like a blown speaker would. We'll have to wait and see how customer service treats me but this is a bit of a disappointment.

Ease of installation

Syncs with Windows Media Player

(4)

Ease of use

Wish the "Power/Play" button had a tactile cue, it is hard to find with cold fingers.

(5)

Quality of Construction

It is an ingenious design. No way for water to get into this rig.

(5)

Fit

Fit me really well, I use an aquasphere shields.

(5)

Comfort

Hardly notice them on.

(0)

Adjustability

Not sure how you could adjust these.

(3)

Durability

Only used it a few times.

News Flash: one side of this device started buzzing on beats and bass tones. Sent it away to the company, we'll see how it goes

(3)

Value

A bit pricey but a unique product. More storage might make it seem less expensive but I don't think you really need it. I figure you can get 5-6 hours of music on there. If I swim the English Channel I deal with repeating my playlist!!!

Appearance

Goggles, wetsuit, noseclips...appearance just isn't an issue.

Customer Service

Haven't needed it yet.

News Flash: one side of this device started buzzing on beats and bass tones. Sent it away to the company, we'll see how it goes.

The company responded to my email promptly and gave me a return authorization. I'd have to say the customer service so far is as much as I could expect.

(5)

Performance

If you like music loud you might be disappointed but I think the level is fine. Earplugs help a great deal.

Strengths

Bone conduction sound, no ports that water CAN get in so I feel confident it won't get wet like my freestyle did.

Weakness

Price, slow to charge (not big deal), can be difficult to find the buttons when using. I don't think it is actually stereo.
