selina, UK

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
No wires, perfect for working out with. Sound is great, very comfortable - you don't know they're there once you get used them. As with any new gadget takes a little while to become familiar with the controls but must say they're very intuitive and easy to use on this. Worth noting I haven't tried them for swimming so can't comment on their use underwater.
Bad points:
Battery life less than the 8 hours specified from a full charge, I'm not getting more than 4 hours and only had the item a couple of weeks.
