iain, London

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
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.

Graham, Dymchurch only that I swim

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Helps with your swimming and stops the boredom of doing lenghs.great help while it keeps working but frustrating if one or both earpieces stop working.Good idea but not quite perfected yet.I swim a mile a day and they mess up once or twice a week but still worth using.
Bad points:
Get an ear earbud wet and thats it for that swim.all the tapping and shaking will not bring back the sound. leave it on the radiator for the night and you are ok for your next swim.
