My Review of i360 Waterproof Underwater Swimming MP3 Player – enjoy music whilst swimming training in the water
I had often wondered if it would be possible to listen to music whilst swimming in the pool- which lead me to search for a waterproof mp3 player or headphone set that would do the job.
Sony, Apple ect all offer various types with different specifications but I settled on an offer I found on Amazon- the i360 Waterproof Underwater Swimming/Running Sport MP3 Player.
I am a runner first and foremost and have only just started swimming and I have to say these really help to break up the monotony of being in the pool. Now I’m training harder as I do when I’m running because I have something to listen to and it just gives me the extra push I have needed.
The head phones came well packaged and look the part, you get the impression that this isn’t cheaply manufactured and you have paid a little extra for a quality product.
The headphones are well built and feel secure on the head once fitted, which is important for me when I am in the water if they move around it disrupts my rhythm.
They are simple to operate and I had no issues changing tracks whilst they were on my head.
Adding music was pretty simple with the supplied usb adapter simply clipping onto your headphones then you just plug it into your computer. The storage available (4gb) is enough for what I am using these for I am not looking for massive capacity as I am only using these in the pool.
Battery life was perfect for these as again I am not in the pool for longer than an hour and the charging was fine.
Sound quality is impressive considering your fighting against the noise of moving through water and the occasional screaming child!.
Use in water up to 3m.
Wireless headphones mean you don’t have any loose cables hanging around to slow you down or get tangled up.
