Good But Not Without Some Problems


from Citrus Heights, CA  -  Avid Listener

I purchased this to replace the JLab Go I had that the frame broke. I bought it specifically because of its water resistance. I use it at the gym while working out & while sitting in the jacuzzi (I'm not brave enough to take it into the steam sauna). I have used it for up to 3.5 hours at a time with no problems. I had seen some comments elsewhere that the player required a longer micro usb connector than normal but I haven't had any problems using my existing cables. The controls take some time to get used to as you can't see them when you are using the player. I do have a problem with the ear pieces coming out while I am using it. I'm not sure how this could be fixed but it is annoying when it pops out of my right ear. There is one issue I haven't seen mentioned anywhere, when you first start playing music the player announces too loudly "Playing". The volume for announcing what it is doing needs to be dropped a few decibels. Over all I would recommend it if you need an mp3 player to listen to while running in the rain or relaxing in the hot tub.


Good but not for everyone


from Citrus Heights, CA  -  Avid Listener

I got this to replace my JLabs Go that the plastic frame had broken. I like wire instead of the frame, it doesn't look like it will break. I do have a problem with the ear buds coming out of my ears, particularly the right ear. On the plus side it is water resistant, I use it at the gym for my workout and sitting in the the jacuzzi. I haven't been brave enough to take it into the steam sauna. The controls take a little while to get use to but I can't really complain as you can't see the controls when you are using them. Since I listen to podcasts of radio shows at the gym I really can't comment on how long the battery life is. But I do know it lasts for over 3.5 hours at a time (No I'm not working out all that time). Bottom line for workouts, walks & sitting in the hot tub these are great.

Great for Running


from San Jose

The MP3 player fits perfectly fine. I have run under the rain with no problem and even the sound of it is better than the sound of my iphone. Also, the battery life is outstanding and once I wear it I do not feel it until I finish running. Just great!
