OK, so here we go:
It's mid-November and I got this as an early Christmas present. The water at the pool was too cold so I thought that I would just wait until next spring when I start to train for my first triathlon of next year. Being the impetuous overgrown boy however, I couldn't wait. So I put on my wetsuit, which by the way I ripped the zipper off of. So if you know how to repair a wetsuit zipper please let me know. I decided that the water is warm enough and it is sunny outside, how bad can it be?
I put on the goggles and then the mp3 player and get in and start swimming. At first it wasn't in stereo so I stopped and simply twisted the earpiece around a little inside my ear and that was it; perfect stereo sound with a great quality. Did a couple laps with no problems and decided to do a couple of hard laps really pushing off the wall to see if I could dislodge the earpieces. They didn't budge, so I was extremey happy about that.
The only legitimate issue I have with this product is that it's a little difficult to put it on over your goggle strap since your goggles are already on. And remember that you put it on on the back of your head so you can't see anything. I'm sure I will figure out an easier way to do it or just get more proficient at it.
I can already see one other possible bad side...You know how when your biking or running and a good song comes on that you want to sort of mouth or sing along with or atleast humm with. Yeah, I can see me doing that without thinking and well.......
Overall I am extremely happy and satisfied with the dolphin. By the way, easy to put music on as well. Before I even plugged it in though, I went a head and made a playlist of songs so that when I did plug it in, I just opened it to view the files and dragged and dropped the whole playlist folder into it and it was done. That easy.
If you do a lot of swimming, buy it, you won't regret it
