    I ordered these earbuds and had a company called Westone make me some custom earmolds to couple these to my ears. The sound quality of the headphones is great and with the custom molds they will never fall out, are VERY comfortable, and maintain excellent sound integrity in and out of the water. My only issue it the length of the cord which is quite long.  But that is just a personal preference.
    I would definitely recommend these.  Look up Westone online and find a location where you could order some custom earmolds to pair with them!

    I used them once and after only 1/2 hour in the pool one ear phone got water logged and the sound became fuzzy.

    The ear pieces don't stay in the ears and the sound gets muffled almost immediately after starting a swim.

    I haven't used while swimming, but I used them while walking.  They are very comfortable and provide quality sound.  I only wish that they didn't have these "post" things and just had the "bud" part that fits in the ears.

    I use these ear phones for swimming laps.  I have to say, these fit my ear the best but will occassionally slip out and allow water to enter my ear.  If that happens, bye bye sound you can recognize.  If you fiddle with them a bit, you can swim for quite a while with your favorite tunes.

    Don't expect top quality, HD sound while swimming but that's probably true with all similar waterproof earphones.  I have the sound up fairly high to offset the sound of bubbles and exhale.  

    So far, I am very happy with these earphones.

    Best bang for your buck. Last a long time. Like the short cord, extention included, to aleviate bunching.

    I haven't used the earbuds in the water.  They seem to sound OK but I can't get them to stay in my ears when just walking around. I don't see how they will stay in while swimming or keep water out of my ears. i used to have a different brand that had an earplug type cover that went down into the ear.  It was pretty deep and kept the water out.;

    Thought this would work for Dolphin MP3 player.  Cannot find headphone replacements for it.  Misleading on description of this product that is fits most MP3 players.  We are using it with another MP3 for running however.

    The ear phones don't stay in while swimming.  Better to have the kind that go around your neck

    Use this for lap swimming and the headphones fill with water or fall out.
    Also the plugin wire is to long and needs to be shortened.



OverBoard founders Dan and Joel were enjoying the wet and sandy fun of travelling in Thailand when inspiration struck.

Surfing, sailing, leaping between boat-taxis and hanging out on the wet decks of dive boats had been endangering their valuables for weeks before they discovered the yellow waterproof bag that was to change their lives. Suddenly everyone they met wanted to know where they could get one of those handy bags, and the entrepreneurial light went on.

OverBoard now produces a wide variety of water-proof bags in every color, shape and size you could need, and they continue to tirelessly explore new ways to provide the highest quality and sharpest looking, waterproof protection.
