Score 4.0/10
Good points:

Bad points:
No matter what you do to the bendy arms and the earpieces it will not stay in place, and as soon as the fit isn't perfect you wont hear anything as the sound is weak.
The smallest ear piece is too big to fit in the ear properly.

Sometimes the sound is compromised slightly when water gets in the ear phone, and it needs knocking out, not really a problem though, I just turn it up and carry on regardless!
