Waterproofed from the inside out, the Waterfi® iPod® Shuffle Waterproof Swim Set will make your laps at the pool an absolute joy.
I am a distance swimmer and have been for at least 30 years and to be able to listen to music while swimming is truly a blessing.Aside from the pleasure i get from the shuffle i wanted to mention the wonderful service at swim outlet I have not dealt with a company that is so customer friendly in my whole life...thanks swim outlet.
Love this! I used to have a Dolphin but every time I got into the water, the sound would fade out and become nearly inaudible. This little gem doesn''t do that at ALL! It sounded just like my regular iPod even under water. You will have to try the different earphone pads to get the right fit - I used the smallest ones and they seemed to fall out too much. I will try the medium ones tomorrow (it comes with 3). It was super easy to use, wrapped right around my goggle strap, and sounded great the whole time. I, too, was wary of the investment but it was WORTH IT!!!
I use the Waterfi iPod Shuffle to listen to podcasts while I do my (almost) daily lapswim. This review is based on one week of daily use. The iPod itself works perfectly in the water. I did not find the buttons stiff as some people have noted. I normally swim with a facemask and I just clip the unit to the strap at the back of my neck. Then I wrap the earbud cord around the strap to shorten it. It doesn''t interfere at all with my swimming. I use the largest of the three earbud sizes. The smaller ones did not form a good seal so I could not hear well. The large size fits me very well. With the volume turned up I have no problem listening to my favorite NPR podcasts while I swim. It is a bit harder to hear while I exhale, but I have not found this to be a problem. Occasionally, the seal breaks and I need to re-insert the earbuds, but this happens only once or twice during my swim. I have long enjoyed listening to podcasts and audiobooks during my land-based workouts. Now I can do the same in the water. I was not familiar with the iPod shuffle when I bought the product. If you want to put multiple podcasts on the shuffle, you must first put them in a ''playlist'' in iTunes and then transfer the playlist to the shuffle. After you do it once, it''s easy. I bought this product in combination with the Garmin Swim. It''s much easier to listen to podcasts when you don''t need to think about counting laps.
I use the iPod to swim laps. As long as I put the earbuds in properly there''s no problem, they are a bit tricky though
Listening to my favorite music while swimming laps is a great idea. I love this little device. It wraps around the back straps of my goggles. The ear buds keep the water out of my ear and sounds great. I would like to hear audio books but the noise from the bubbles while exhaling underwater interferes with the sound. I would like to be able to switch songs in the middle but I will just have to do better at creating a better 2 1/2 hour swimming music mix.
I was nervous about spending so much money but I wanted a reliable product so I made the investment, and it was well worth it. I use this on days when my only intention is just to spend some time in the water without focusing on technique or speed and it works like a charm, instead of focusing on how far I''ve gone I just swim. I don''t necessarily zone out, but it allows me to relax in and just enjoy my time in the water. My husband was concerned that I wouldn''t have enough room for my music but, after two weeks, I still haven''t filled it up to half capacity (I''m picky about what I swim to) and I haven''t had to charge it yet either. Some of the reviews mentioned the headphones but I haven''t had any issues with them, I cover them with my cap and just go, they stay in the entire time and the sound quality is good.
I'm just an amateur swimmer and use swimming as my workout instead of the gym. So, anything to take some of the monotony out of a swim session is welcome. Listening to music while swimming is great. It let's me forget how tired I am and let's me increase my work out and pushes me just a little bit harder. My routine improves every time I get in the pool. It took a couple times to get used to the ear buds and to learn how to keep and get water out of them. I don't want to swim without my tunes now. Love it.
This is great, I am more of a runner and cyclist, so long periods of time in the water are mind numbing. This has helped out a lot on distance swims. It is easy to use and load, just be sure to get the right size ear bud pieces on.
I have used this Waterfi Shuffle several times now and I like the shuffle a lot easy to use and set up and works well. The headphones though are not as advertised, they pick up a lot of water noise, do not seal all that well, but most importantly one side drops out frequently, and it is always the same side. This would be really great if the headphones were better. Not sure it was worth the price though with these phones.
Really great sound and easy to use. It makes lap swimming much more enjoyable.
