Music Shines Underwater
What’s In The Box
WMA, AAC, and FLAC
for all-day comfort
Unbeatable whilst working. Now one ear works and the other works occasionally. Best bit is that they continually cut out after 15 mins. Bought pre lockdown so used maybe 10x. £140 isn't great for this.
So far 110kin the water. Never came loose. Always clear music. Great battery life.
The best thing ive treated myself to in a long time. Amazing in the pool making swimming so much easier and more enjoyable. I've also used them for running, and as they dont go in your ears you can still hear people and traffic etc which makes me feel much safer. And they NEVER budge even during a 2.5 mile swim they didn't move. Loading Music is so easy to. Havent got a bad word to say about them. I loved them so much my nan and cousin both bought themselves a pair on my reccomendation.
In common with another reviewer, I used Sony Waterproof earphones to stave off the boredom of swimming! However, when they eventually broke, I tried the Xtrainerz. Pre lock-down I was swimming 30 minutes a day in a 20M pool.
By comparison, the Xtrainerz go longer between recharging c/w the Sony's. They are also very lightweight - you dont really know you have them on. They are however more expensive than a Sony. They also feel more flimsy than the Sony, although I haven't put the titanium to the test: with careful handling, they are probably OK.
Another reviewer makes the point that sound quality differs whether or not you are above water. I imagine that when you are submerged, you are probably increasing the amount of bone conduction(BC)? They are louder underwater, but to be honest, they are loud enough above water (and they are louder than the Sony). Yes, you can use earplugs to smooth out the difference in sound, but the real attraction of these is that you dont need to have anything stuck in your ears!
Sound quality is fine, although BC tends to favour lower frequencies, so they can sound a bit 'bassy', but again I dont think this is a problem. Music while you swim isn't a hi-fi experience, so for me they are fit for purpose.
Hope this helps and good luck with your swimming journey. Andrew
Purchased these and they worked well sound is OK and overall a better solution to many I've tried when swimming. Used about twenty times until the recent lockdown. Gone to use them again and one side is not producing sound anymore. Filled out the warrenty so will see what happens with that. However it's not looking promising when the drop down menu for problems with these has my issue already to pick. Seems like a well known problem that's making me wonder if I should invest in the aeropex
2. OpenSwim（Formerly Xtrainerz） was placed into the designated immersion tank.
3. Water was added to reach the standard 1m level line in the water tank, and a pressure of 0.1 atm was added.
4. Test time was 2 hours.
IP6X: This rating applies to items that are protected against ingress of dust. Ingress of dust is not totally prevented.
OpenSwim（Formerly Xtrainerz） was placed in a sealed box with a certain density of dust particles about 75 μm in diameter, and pumped under a negative pressure of 2Kpa for 8 hours.
OpenSwim（Formerly Xtrainerz） functions normally after the test.
②This data was the result of a test that was conducted using OpenSwim（Formerly Xtrainerz）.
Test conditions: Copied the audio file (white noise with 44.1kHz sampling rate and 24bit bit depth in wav format) to the OpenSwim（Formerly Xtrainerz） headphones, adjusted to the standard EQ mode, and set the volume by pressing “Volume- “button four times from the maximum volume in a normal temperature environment.
Test content: OpenSwim（Formerly Xtrainerz） battery was fully discharged and then charged to 100%. The audio file was played until the headphones stopped playback. The duration time was counted as the continuous playback time of the headphones.
Test result: It showed that the OpenSwim（Formerly Xtrainerz） had a continuous playback time of up to 8 hours.
In actual use, battery life depends on device settings, environment, usage, and many other factors.
