abunda_amazon_reviews Finally the perfect ear buds for lap swimming! I have found that the biggest weakness for any underwater MP3 players are the ear pieces. If you are kicking against a wall when making that reverse very few ear buds can take that pressure. I have been using these ear buds for a few years now and have yet to have any issues with them. I have had a lot of experience dealing with earbuds and MP3 players for about 12 years now since I swim two miles a day and could not get through it without being able to listen to music. I am always looking for the best product and for value and glad to see these at last. I have always used and recommended the H20 ear buds in the past but they have had short comings like the cord being too long, or sometimes weak rubber on the ear pieces. Having said that I always recommend them since they are much better then the earphones that come with most waterproof MP3 players. This latest lap swimming version of their product is the best and I can find no faults with it at all. Somehow they even manage to make the music louder which you really need in lap swimming scenario. They also always stay in my ears and I use the larger rubber tips. Also some helpful tips on using waterproof ear buds: 1. Start with the larger ear bud rubber ends first then work your way down to the smaller sizes if that doesn't fit. If you use the larger sizes, you get a tighter barrier against the water. 2. I like to insert them dry but if they don't fit quite right you should consider wetting the ear buds lightly in the water before you place them in your ear, sometimes the water will keep them more secure in your ear. However, I have found the best way to keep them in your ear is to use a swab on the outside area of your ear briefly to get any oil or sweat where the buds are inserted (but not the ear canal). This always seems to work best and will ensure a tight fit. 3. When you insert them in your ear pull back the top of your ear with your opposite hand, that will stretch it and allow the ear canal to gently wrap snugly around the ear bud. It is rare when the water enters the ear canal if you take these three steps you can enjoy the music much better. Once water gets in your ear you are hosed for the rest of the swim and that goes for any ear piece. I also recommend using the Waterproof MP3 player from SEWOBYE with these as well for the best experience in listening to music while you swim. You can read my review on that product for more background. Happy swimming!;;Reviewed in the United States on April 23, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Finally the perfect ear buds for lap swimming!;;Cman;;;They got everything right. The trick is adding a little bit of vasoline to your ear canal right before you pop these in...if you do that, these headphones will be your best friend. The cord is the perfect length, the sound is great, and it cancels out the sound of the water really well. They also fit in your ears perfect. ***NOTE*** your ear holes can be different sizes...so if one pops out, try a bigger (or smaller) size.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 12, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Take it from a 5x a week swimmer...;;Melissa Rose Benavides;;;The ear tips are better than most for keeping water out. You really have to put them up inside the ear canal though. And that is where the problem lies. YOU CAN'T GET THEM OUT. There is no stem or handle or slight protuberance to get a grip on to get these things out. In order to seal against the water they have to sit right at the entrance to the ear canal nestled in the concha. Unless you have huge ears, you will have a difficult time grabbing hold of the earbud's body to pull them out. This will lead to pulling on the quite small and fragile wires to get them out, which will in turn quickly cause the formation of a electrical short or even complete removal of the wires. Not sure if this is a design or a "feature" causing you to have to buy many more sets of buds over time.;;Reviewed in the United States on November 5, 2018;;2.0 out of 5 stars;;Better than most but with one FATAL FLAW;;MSC;;;I am quite the audiophile and own many high-end headphones like the Audeze LCDi4, JH Audio Layla custom IEM, and Sennheiser HD800 S for serious listening and the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless for gym workouts. Being that I have some sort of headphones playing music to my ears almost every waking minute, I decided I needed a good waterproof headphone for swimming laps at my local health club. I have the waterproofed iPod Shuffle and had some other waterproofed headphones but the sound quality was barely acceptable even for my drastically reduced expectations and it was constantly losing sound on one side after a few laps of swimming. So, I decided I needed a replacement and decided to give these H2O headphones a try. I figured that it couldn't possibly be worse than what I had been dealing with. Well, I have to say that these headphones definitely exceeded my expectations and this is from a bonafide audiophile who is extremely anal about sound quality. No, it does not compare to the Audeze LCDi4 in-ears or my custom-molded JH Audio IEM, but for $40 that takes the monotony out of swimming laps, it delivers excellent sound and has proven to be quite reliable. You're dealing with water and bubble noise so all audiophile sonic details will be lost anyway. You just want a good solid fundamental sound with a decent soundstage and that is what these headphones deliver. I primarily listen to classical music and having Chopin's Nocturnes or Brahms' piano concertos playing in my ears while swimming can be quite a blissful experience and it actually encourages me to swim longer and with more energy. I now swim 30~40 minutes non-stop while listening to music when I used to quit after 15~20 minutes due to the sheer tedium of swimming laps. So, yes, in effect, these headphones are actually making me healthier and I'm sure it'll do the same for many others. Highly recommended.;;Reviewed in the United States on July 6, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Excellent for Swimming;;Virtuoso Fan
