    I just used your product for the first time today. It is great, it’s life changing. I am a former NCAA champion and USA national team swimmer and am now a middle aged (well getting old ) woman. I haven’t been swimming much because I fight boredom swimming laps and get frustrated by my performance. Day 1 with your product, today, Jan 1, 2012. I swam 2000 yards with great music. I swam farther than planned, with a smile.

    I absolutely LOVE it. At 81,I am thrilled to be around long enough to experience these wonderful innovations. The sound is wonderful and so far,neither the device nor I have given out yet.
    With great appreciation

  3. :

    I have tried other mp3 players which have stopped working after a couple of months. I have been using my ipod player for 7 months now, and it works great. I love it.

  4. :

    I gave this iPod to my daughter-in-law, and she loves it; plus it’s cute as a button.
    I’d say more but I’m not the one using it.

  5. :

    I’ve owned this ipod for a couple of months and use it in the pool 3-4 times a week for 35 minutes. It takes a charge wonderfully, unlike 2 other IPODS/mp3 players I had owned previously. The IPOD is easy to work; just plug in and start swimming! The only suggestion I have is that sometimes it isn’t easy to advance songs–the IPOD seems to stay on play. Other than that–it’s the best underwater IPOD I’ve seen and used! : )

    My best purchase EVER!!!
    Swimming laps can be sooo boring. However, I actually swim laps NON-STOP for two hours straight everyday at my Gym. I can do this because I am taken away by the audio books and music I carry with me on my ipod, totally waterproofed by Underwater Audio. I love this little machine! It is so easy to use. I download new book CDs everyday. (I check them out from the library.) Then I leave my shuffle plugged in to charge in my computer ’til I head for the gym next. This way I avoid misplacing it ’cause it is so tiny. I wear it clipped to my swimsuit. EASY!! I have had other waterproof audio devices. I really liked and used one from Oregon Scientific, but they no longer make it. (And this ipod is so superior!) I have spent too much money on others that were just too much of a hassle to figure out and use. I actually threw a $200 device away in disgust ’cause I could never get the playback to work correctly… It was worthless! (It was a Speedo device.) This ipod allows you to play books back with all of the tracks in order OR to shuffle your music selections. I just have to say… This little player keeps me going back to the pool ’cause I need to find out what happens next in the mystery books I listen to. You won’t regret this purchase!

  7. :

    Love it. Not bored anymore on long swim workouts! Used it frequently for 2 months now without a problem. I recommend it.

  8. :

    Wow, after a running injury it was necessary to rehab in a swimming pool. Very boring until I googled underwater audio and was pleased to discover the underwater iPod. It works incredibly well – Just like my nano, only water proof. I highly recommend this product and this company to everyone.

  9. :

    I felt compelled to send a quick note to say THANK YOU!
    I am an amateur Xterra triathlete, who is a horrible swimmer (boring lap after lap). No matter how much I tried to enjoy the water workouts, I couldn’t drag myself to the pool as often as I needed to; and I’m a pool guy! I had mentioned your product to my wife before Christmas and she rush ordered one. Since Christmas morning, I now look forward to my swim training and I look for excuses to stop by the pool for some quick laps. Your product ROCKS!
    Thank you, again; very cool.

    My mom (the original person I purchased this product for) absolutely loves her waterproofed iPod Shuffle.

    In the past three months she has lost over 30 pounds all because she has really switched her focus to working out consistently and eating healthy foods and portions. She’s been overweight since I was born (26 years ago), and has tried different programs in the past; but now, not only is she feeling incredibly motivated and excited to exercise, she is also really doing it on her own with supporters always rooting for her (e.g. on Facebook and in daily life).

    Anyway, that relates to Underwater Audio because one of her favorite forms of exercise is swimming at her local aquatic center. And she’s told me it’s significantly more fun and motivating with some good music! A few years ago I ordered her a waterproof case for the first gen of the iPod Shuffle and as your site points out, the connection between the earbuds and Shuffle is eventually hindered due to the casing.

    I’m pretty sure my mom has already easily convinced a couple of her friends to buy a waterproofed iPod from Underwater Audio. She even let a woman at the pool borrow hers for a few minutes because the woman thought it looked so neat.

    I received this yesterday, got it working last night and used it this morning and so far so good, I love it! A word of advice, if your desktop computer does not recognize the device (and you have the latest version of itunes)plug into the back of your computer. It worked for me!

  12. :

    All the advantages of a real iPod while fully waterproof. Works perfectly. Fits easily on goggle strap. Secure headphone jack with no ‘wobble’ or chance for poor connection. Blows the Speedo Aquabeat away. Worth every penny. Hats off to these guys for getting this right!

  13. :

    I’ve had my Waterproof iPod for about 18 months and I love it. I’ve had no problems, and I can’t imagine swimming without it.
    Underwater Audio is a great company. They responded promptly to my questions and ship their orders fast too.
    I would not hesitate to order from them. You’ll enjoy your swim even more.

  14. :

    I grew up in competitive swimming and have always said that it makes teenage girls crazy to go all that time with your head under water. This product solves that problem, as well as the boredom issue for those of us who are still (or back to) swimming at elder ages (I am now 58).

    The Underwater Audio iPod Shuffle and headphones arrived very quickly, and work perfectly. I was skeptical about the headphones as they didn’t seem to fit as snugly as the earplugs I was using, but they were very effective in keeping the water out and the sounds in. I thought the performance on the headphones was better than the usual Apple earbuds for dry land. I don’t use the earhooks, and the plugs stay in place with no problems.

    I started thinking about the perfect playlist: Rock me on the Water (Jackson Browne), Smoke on the Water, Wade in the Water, Handel’s Water Music, etc.

    This is the best thing I’ve done for myself since I joined the YMCA in January and started swimming a mile a day. It is well worth the price for this brilliant device.

  15. :

    I got mine from Amazon about a month ago. I’ve used it for 45-60 minutes 5 days a week and I just had to charge it for the first time. It’s totally amazing. I had gotten a different companies version and it only worked 11 times {they were very good about taking it back} This one is still perfect. I am very happy. Totally worth the money. It makes my swimming PT so much more enjoyable.

    Thanks, Vin

  16. :

    I love it! I have an endless pool in my basement and I try to swim three times a week for an hour. I have had another brand, but it was not supported by iTunes and could never get my audible books on it. With my Underwater Audio iPod, I can listen to a multitude of things. Thanks!

  17. :

    I absolutely love my waterproof iPod and waterproof earbuds. A few months ago I took up swimming in order to lose weight and get in shape. I quickly decided swimming was definitely going to help me meet my goals– the only problem I had was that it was boring. So I purchased my iPod and earbuds from Underwater Audio. It was surreal the first time I put them on and pushed off the side of the pool with crystal clear audio in my ear. Now I swim 4 miles per week (1 mile per day, 4 days per week), all while listening to music or podcasts using your great equipment. I’ve never had any problems whatsoever. Thank you so much for putting out a great product!

  18. :

    Once I figured out the perfect set up…I LOVE it!! It makes swimming so much more tolerable! I had the case before, which worked but this is way more convenient!!

  19. :

    Just got my Waterproof Shuffle and took it out for its debut at the pool yesterday. I ended up doing three straight hours of water dancing! The over-the-ears headphones with the short cord were fantastic. Just attached the iPod to my swimsuit strap and it was the perfect length! I was also impressed with the incredibly fast shipping and customer service responses to my questions. And it is incredibly easy to use. I was the envy of others at the pool, and two people have already come up and asked me where I got it! This is one of the best purchases I have ever made!!! Thanks, Underwater Audio!!

  20. :

    I’m a 61 year old guy that has been swimming for a long time. This iPod and waterproof headphone have made my daily swim a lot more enjoyable. I went with the headphones with the short cord and the earbuds stay in my ears better than anything I have ever tried. The sound is great and my swim flies by. The only problem I have is people stopping me and telling me that my iPod shouldn’t be used in the water.

  21. :

    Even sweat from working out will kill an ipod shuffle – Apple will tell you so, and do not warranty ipods for water (sweat) damage even though they show people working out and running with ipods. I have killed many 6+ ipods in less than 6 months. So I did not hesitate to invest in Underwater Audio’s protection. I have had my ipod for 1.5 years now, swim or work out 5 or more days per week. Battery life seems unaffected and my shuffle keeps me in tunes. May seem expensive, but actually is a great value. Great upgrade to a good product for dedicated exercise junkies that can’t run or swim a 100 yards without music.

  22. :

    Works flawlessly and has transformed my 40-60 minute swims, as part of triathlon training, from boring to enjoyable experiences. Controls work well. Very highly recommended!

  23. :

    Just wanted to let you know how much I love your product. Had
    previously bought one for a friend (who is a competitive swimmer) and
    they raved about it so much that I have finally (after too many years)
    gotten back into the pool myself near every day in order to use my own.
    People regularly ask us where we got them and we direct them to you with
    our hearty recommendations!

  24. :

    I am so happy with the waterproof Ipod – I have tried several different MP3 players for swimming, and they have all been kind of a hassle, but this is so easy! very easy to control when in the water. The sound is great! I definitely swim faster listening to my tunes! I love it!

  25. :

    I just received the product and have already used it a couple times whilst swimming. This is an excellent product that works perfectly, attaches to your goggles and you don’t even notice it is there. Best purchase I have ever made, and now I’m counting down the minutes until I’m back in the water. I highly recommend listening to Kendrick Lamar’s swimming pools, whilst swimming in a pool. Peace!

  26. :

    I am VERY satisfied with my waterproof IPod. You guys did a fantastic job. It makes such a difference having music to swim to. After being a competitive swimmer for 20+ years without music, I wonder how we could stand the “boredom”. Where were these nifty gadgets 30 years ago…… Thanks again

  27. :

    It’s so nice to be able to swim with music. I look forward to my workouts thanks to my new waterproof iPod. I may try taking it surfing. You need to market this at all the outdoor stores.

    Can you do this to my iPhone? I bought a case that claims to be waterproof but leaked and broke my phone the first time I swam with it. That’s why I invested in your device. Just love it.

    Thanks for developing the first ever truly waterproof MP3 player.

  28. :

    This product is well worth the money! My wife and I both got the iPod with swim buds and couldn’t be happier. Swimming has become much more enjoyable. The earbuds stay in your ear very well.

    My headphones were having a few issues and they sent me new headphones no questions asked. Great customer service. Will be buying from them again!

  29. :

    My underwater iPod has added 500m to my daily swim. Being able to tune out the sounds of the pool and listen to just my music is awesome! I love it!

  30. :

    Hello UWA,
    You have done a great job!! Very happy with the out come of this ipod!! Thought a little pricey but have done over 100 laps with no problems.

  31. :

    I bought this as a gift for my husband. He has used it every day and absolutely loves it. Says that it makes his swimming a much more enjoyable experience For now, it works perfectly. If there should be any problems, we will certainly contact you.

  32. :

    One word AWESOME I love it, it’s the best thing I ever bought for swim gear it makes my exercise FUN.Wouldn’t trade it for anything, good job.

  33. :

    I finally got to use my nano and I love it…makes my workout rock.

  34. :

    It is the best thing I bought for myself in the longest time! Not only I enjoy the music and swimm more, but it prevents water to go in my ears, a problem that afflicted me a lot.

    Beethoven and water! You can’t beat that!

    I totally love it.

  35. :

    I got my wife the waterproof Shuffle for her pool therapy, and she doesn’t know how she lived without it! Thanks for a great product!

  36. :

    I would like to share with you that I am absolutely loving my waterproof IPod! It has made my long-distance swimming so much more enjoyable! The time flies when I have music playing. Many others have asked me about your product, and I definitely recommend it to them! So thank you!

  37. :

    The IPod Shuffle is outstanding. My only wish is that I would have purchased it sooner. I swim 2,000 meters almost everyday and the time flies while I listen to my favorite music.Thank you for a great product!

  38. :

    I LOVE my underwater iPod. I swim 2000 m twice a week and it has made my workouts even better than before. I think it is amazing to hear music as I swim. I also love that the ear buds came with multiple sizes as my seven year old also uses it to swim her laps. She was literally dancing as she got into the pool the first time when she wore it. Thank you for making such a revolutionary product! I love it!!!

  39. :

    I have been swimming with my waterproof Shuffle for the past month and so far it is the best underwater player I have ever owned … and I have had lots of them! I have been swimming with underwater music players ever since the late 80s, when I used the “Aquatunes” waterproof pouch for my Sony Walkman cassette player. Since then I have had all kinds of waterproof cases for different types of players. I have even had two previous waterproofed Shuffles (not from Underwater Audio): one gave out just after the warranty expired, and on the other, the buttons were too stiff and never worked right, so I sent it back a few days after getting it. I was reluctant to try another one, and for the past few years I have been using a regular Shuffle inside a waterproof case. The trouble with most waterproof cases is that you only need to make one mistake in sealing it shut and it will leak and ruin the Shuffle inside. So I decided it was time to try the waterproof Shuffle again — this time from Underwater Audio. This one worked fine right away. I love not having to deal with a case, swimming with something so small and light that it clips right to my goggles strap. I like being able to attach my own pair of waterproof earbuds that fit my ears snugly and deliver great quality sound. And if something goes wrong with one pair of earbuds, I keep a few spares — they are easily replaceable. I plan on sticking with this waterproof Shuffle for as long as it lasts — and I do hope that’s at least a few years.

  40. :

    The waterproof Shuffle that I have now is from Underwater Audio. I had previously had a waterproofed Shuffle from Waterfi, but it came with the buttons too stiff to press. Their customer service was very nice and helpful, and gave me a lot of tips to loosen the buttons, but I never could get it to work easily, and they gave me no trouble about sending it back for a refund. So I went back to swimming with a regular Shuffle inside a waterproof case for a while (from X-1/H2O Audio). Then I got tired of hassling with the case and worrying about leaking from an incorrectly sealed case, and gave the waterproofed Shuffle another try. The one I’m using now is everything I want in an underwater music/podcast player. The only question in my mind is how long it will last. But assuming it lasts for a year or two, I will replace it with another one if the battery dies.

  41. :

    I have actually have used the set I bought… the IPOD is a dream!! Totally boosts my workout 100%

  42. :

    It’s awesome – works exactly as advertised. Perfect functioning even while fully submerged. Very satisfied.

  43. :

    I’m really enjoying it. I had my doubts but I’m sold!
    Well done!!

  44. :

    I’ve been a runner until I had major surgery and had to switch to the pool for exercise. Swimming is so boring, but not with my Underwater iPod Shuffle! I actually enjoy my workouts in the pool with this waterproofed iPod. It sounds like surroundsound when I am in the water. I can swim farther than I thought possible. I’ve been using it for about 6 weeks.

    Underwater Audio has great customer service. For some reason the battery on my first iPod Shuffle died and then were able to send me a replacement with little hassle – even when I originally ordered it through Amazon. I highly recommend this waterproof iPod Shuffle! No excuses to not workout in the swimming pool!

  45. :

    I almost never read product reviews because I think that they are probably made up my the product advertisers just to sell their product. And I have never written a review for the same reason. But I HAVE to say how amazing this product is! I absolutely LOVE my waterproof shuffle and headphones!!! I have been training for longer and longer triathlons, and the extended pool workouts were starting to get extremely boring! My hubby was nice enough to get these for me for mother’s day and they have made all the difference. I have been listening to the Game of Thrones series Audio Books and it makes my two-a-day swims enjoyable. I would even go so far as to say I look forward to them! They also work nicely for runs in the rain! :)
    I would recommend the white headphones since I got the bundle and my black over-behind-the-ear headphones broke after a few weeks, but the white ones continue to go strong. Thank you so much for your innovation!!!

  46. :

    I bought my ipod shuffle 2 months ago, and the only problem I had was with the customs whom wanted me to pay a tax for the ipod.
    This was something that had never happened to me so I was a bit annoyed but since then I have read about the matter and understood what happened.
    The ipod it self was and is still working without a glitch! I have swam only once without them since I got them and I can’t ever imagine doing that again.
    Thank you Underwater audio!!
    One of my best purchases.
    Also thank all of you who wrote an review and gave me the courage to buy a pair. Never thought it would work, but it works perfectly.
