    I use this product for whitewater kayaking.  It has take the abuse of class 5 rivers.  Never once has my MP3 been wet.  If it get ripped from your arm...it FLOATS.

    I use the Amphibx in the pool at the gym training for the next tri.
    It has effectively doubled my workout time, as I am less bored
    and more distracted...whatever helps!  I agree with other reviews
    that it is somewhat difficult to get my Sony mp3 in and out, but
    otherwise it works well with the surge sportswrap 2.0's and
    since I rock Rhapsody, it's great to keep my workout listening to one device.

    Protected the iPod from the pool water while I was doing laps and then allowed my son to listen to some tunes while he was playing in the pool.

    Gave it 4/5 stars bc it's hard to get the iPod in and out and bc it is kinda interfering, but not major. You get used to it being there just like you would with a running iPod case. But over all, I would certainly recommend as it has boosted my swim time and I barely notice the time flying by as I swim now! It's enjoyable. The earphones are crap and you have to adjust them all the time but experiment with different ones and you'll find your groove and it won't be an issue.

    Overall, this is awesome and I highly recommend!

    I swim 3-4 x week for an hour, variety of strokes and the band stays put. Very comfortable; no rubbing or chaffing. Only problems are with the earbuds: after a flip turn they may dislodge unless your swimcap is over your ears. Water in your ears is inevitable and causes the sound to blur a bit. The volume may decrease, so you turn it up, then water goes out of your ear and then it's too loud. The cord is long and I have to tuck it under my suit strap in the back. Am not sure what guys can do. I have to adjust the a cord a lot.

    I have tried all the music- while- you're- swimming products and this armband along with an ipod shuffle is awesome.  No leaks; easy to use; ear phones stay put under the bathing cap; sound is great - all problems with other products I've tried for my daily swim.

    I got a membership at a gym near my house and just found it really difficult to swim for a long period of time w/o any music to listen to and keep me going. I was scepticle about if the armband would actually keep my (brand new) ipod safe but it does and the sound quality out of the overboard headphones i got is great too. I highly recommend this product to any serious swimmer. Gotta have this if you can't live without your music!

    This is one of the best investments I made in my training.  Makes my swims more enjoyable - just get one, you won't regret it.  I gave it 4 stars since it's a little tough getting my Sansa player in and out of the amband with the inside being rubber and plastic - doesn't slide in very easy.  A cloth lining might have been a better design, but it still does the job.  Armband is nice an snug and doesn't bother at all when I swim.  Highly recommended.

    Makes swimming even more enjoyable. Just don't expect a regular Ipod earphones quality sound, but it's acceptable. Easy to change music settings even while in water. The earphones comes in a different sizes of ear covers so you can choose comfortable fitting. It's attractive & you'll meet new friends as people would be asking about the product. Cons; the earphones kept falling off especially while doing the free style, but able to keep it on for the most part with breast stroke. But its easy to solve the problem, use a benie ( super benie by Body Glove ) or any brand of your choice that would hold the earphones even swimming in the ocean. With benie, keeps you warmer so you'll stay longer in the water. The size is a bit bulky. For this reason, I did not give it a 5 star. And I just wish they can make a better quality sound earphones. I realize that under water the sound will be compromized, but who knows, someday. I would recomend this product to family & friends.

    I use the armband for lap swimming. It is great! I was worried that it would rub against by body and irritate my skin but it doesn't at all! It is really comfortable. Great product.

ABOUT THIS BRAND

H2O Audio

H2O Audio, now known as X-1 Audio, features a line of rugged casings for MP3 players, which allows for the use of expensive and delicate digital music players during water sports activities. Partnering directly with leading MP3 manufactures, H2O Audio has created a line of sturdy and practical casings, patented waterproof headphones, and underwater accessories. Established by athletes for athletes, H2O Audio is made up of a team of avid swimmers, surfers, wake-boarders, sky-boarders, and kayakers.

H2O Audio began in 2001 as a graduate project at San Diego State University that aimed to bring music to Scuba divers. It just didn’t seem fair that runners and other terrestrial athletes could train with the benefit of music, while swimmers, surfers, divers, and other aquatic athletes were bound to silence. The company's beginnings pre-dated the widespread popularity of the iPod® and other MP3 players, so the first dive case was designed to house a portable CD player.

After many prototypes and adjustments, the first production model case was made for the iRiver MP3 player in 2002. It came equipped with the power-amplified diving headphones similar to those that are integrated into the current, state-of-the-art "iDive Underwater Apple iPhone/iPod MP3 Housing." More recently, H2O Audio incorporated in-ear technology into the "Surge" and "Surge Sportwrap" headphones.

In 2005, the company designed the first waterproof cases for iPod. For the first time, swimmers and surfers could take their music into the water. As the iPod evolved so did H2O Audio, which led to the innovation of the "Interval Waterproof Headphone System," which fits both the 3rd and 4th generation iPod Shuffle™. In a constant effort to improve sound quality and comfort, H2O Audio also introduced the "iPod Shuffle Swimbelt" and the "Amphibx Armbands," which come in three sizes to accommodate many sizes of MP3 players.

H2O Audio product design and development is based on years of prototypes and close collaboration with top athletes like Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin and triathletes Greg and Laura Bennett, and surfer Laird Hamilton.

Today, H2O Audio's corporate headquarters are just feet from the ocean (in other words, testing grounds) in Pacific Beach, California. The company is committed to developing the best high-performance waterproof and sweat-proof sport headphones, armbands, and other accessories on the market. H2O Audio doesn't want to be limited to producing a cheap, featureless player simply because it's waterproof. The company strives instead to create something that functions well in any conditions, providing high-quality sound, easy control of the audio device, and access to music no matter the conditions.
