Customer Reviews

great product, untill it breaks and then there is no responce from the seller I'm re writing my product review, we have lost one side so I'm only getting music through one ear. I have written to them a second time with no response. I took out the warrantee and I'm trying to figure out how to get that to pay off. I really want another pair as when they worked they were great. 2Works until they don't. Customer support is no good. Buy something else. I've had this product less than 2 months. I use it only for my swimming workouts. As of this week, it no longer will interface with my computer. The light blinks indicating it is charging and it does play the music that is on it, but now it seems I am stuck with the same (admittedly awesome, all-Gaga) playlist forever. No driver software is available from the manufacturer to resolve the driver issue indicated by Windows 10.Sound quality is OK. What can you expect with earbuds? I did have one of the ear pieces stay in my ear one time when removing the headphones. Took a few minutes to fish it out, also not super cool. Yet I still love the tunes while swimming.I contacted Pyle support. Hopefully I hear something back from them soon.-- update below here --After a few days, I heard back from Pyle support. They weren't super clear in the response and I had to reply in order to ask them specifically what they needed from me. They said my unit is defective, but still want me to fill out a form and ship the unit back to them so they can verify. It would be much better if they sent a new one out immediately with a return label for the defective unit and bill only if the defective unit is not truly defective. The burden placed upon the consumer to receive support for a defective item is a bit much having to pay for shipping both ways. I am pretty unhappy with this unit and with Pyle at this point. You should not purchase this product. 1It works fine My first swimming player, so not biased really. The most tricky part is to find how to put it into ear and which earplug (unit comes with 3 various types) fits your ears best. Once you got that done this unit just works making doing laps less boring. Since you got only Play/Pause, Fwd/Rew and volume buttons on it I'd recommend 4GB version over bigger ones aas filling 8GB of storage with music or audiobooks is pointless as you will not be able to easily navigate thru these, so it's more comfortable to just put fewer tracks (say 5 mixes 1 hour each would serve majority for most of the time) or to just remove what you got bored with and put new tracks. 4Great sound from this MP3 unit that you can hear under water! I have only used this MP3 player once today and I give it 3 thumbs up! I have tried a bunch of wireless earbuds with claims to be good for swimming. All failed miserably! I swam for over 35 minutes today and could hear my music perfectly. A tad uncomfortable, just a little, but that's to be expected with the pieces in my ears, a tight bathing cap on top of that pushing it all in and then the goggles. Plus - a few inside earrings that cannot be removed easily. My music is in MP3 format down I download from the internet, putting the music on this unit was as simple as opening up my folder with the music, opening up the folder showing the MP3 player and sliding the music over. No instructions necessary as far as I was concerned, very intuitive. I will perhaps come back as to battery life. For now, I plan on putting a book onto it that I have on a thumb drive and listening to that while I swim since the sound was so clear. Finally!! 5Great fitness earbuds for running, cycling and weights. Pros------ Lightweight- Comfortable- Good Sound Quality- Simple to operate- Sweat-proof- Water-proof- 8GB music storage (I currently have 129 songs occupying around 890-ish MB if that gives you an idea of how much storage there is)Cons (none that should deter anyone from buying this unit)-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Nothing in the manual tells you how to store your music on the device (can't use band-name folders containing the songs; the songs, themselves, all have to be in the root directory of the device) or how to know when the unit is fully-charged (blinking? Or not blinking?)- The charge clip could have been designed better or the contacts in a better location so you absolutely know it's clipped on correctly for charging (maybe another addition to the product manual).When my PMX80 wired headset wire broke down at the headset connection, I needed another pair of earbuds for my workouts. I looked long and hard and saw many phone-controlling Bluetooth headsets, but the last thing I want to carry on a run or when lifting weights is a phone.The armbands chafe my skin on long runs and the phones are too heavy to put in the pocket of my shorts. So I considered getting a Bluetooth earbuds and a tiny Bluetooth music player. For decent quality, you're looking at $100+ for both items. Additionally, most wired and wireless earbuds now have phone controls in a module that hangs down from one of the earbuds. I didn't want that at all, but it's hard to find earbuds without them.As a result, I settled for a $15 knock-off headset that looked like my PMX80s. The sound wasn't great on my PMX80s and was a little worse on my $15 headset. After I got the knock-offs I started hearing of headsets by which you can store music. I was excited about this because now I would need one less piece of equipment for my workouts (no separate MP3-player necessary).I looked at some high end units by which there was no wire between the buds combined with Bluetooth connectivity. I really didn't want earbuds that weren't connected to one another in case, while cycling, one should pop out on me. Even so, I almost pulled the trigger on one of these, but then I thought about how it didn't make sense that they charged $200+ for these earbuds just because they had music storage. I didn't care about Bluetooth because if I could store my music on the earbuds themselves, I wouldn't need anything Bluetooth for my workouts. When I workout, I don't take calls. I wanted something workout specific.This all pointed me straight to the Pyle PSWP14BK. I'm glad I found it on Amazon. This is a great headset so far. It does exactly what I need it to... Plays music during my workouts without wires and without the janky unreliability of Bluetooth. It allows me to head out for a run or bike ride with only my earbuds and my GPS watch. I don't have the distraction of Bluetooth connectivity issues. No wires from my shirt to my short's pocket and like I mentioned above; one less piece of equipment to carry. These fill the roll of both the MP3-player and the earbuds.You just put your MP3s into the root directory of the headset and it will shuffle the music out of the box (my preference for workouts is shuffle play for workouts). You can turn shuffle play off with the press of two buttons. The controls were all well thought out and are easy to distinguish by touch while running.The sound quality is well beyond my old PMX80s and the knock-offs. It's not like a set of high-end studio monitors, but the sound quality is among the best I've heard from fitness-type earbuds across the price and brand spectrum. The buds fit securely in my ears. They do everything I need them to do and when I'm done with a sweaty workout, I can rinse them off.They will not come out of your ears if you use the right size ear buds. Provided earbuds are small, medium and large for swimming and non-swimming use (six total sets of tips).My use is for running and cycling indoors and outdoors and lifting weights. I will eventually get around to swimming in them as well. These things absolutely do not get in the way.I would recommend them to anyone wanting good sound in an earbud headset and looking to carry less equipment during their workouts.I would not recommend them to anyone looking for Bluetooth connectivity or phone controls; they don't have them.The only reason I've taken a star away is because of the cons I've listed. That folder con I listed above is definitely an inconvenience especially if you want to load the unit up to its limit with music.I hope this review helped you make your decision! 4I was well pleased. The hardest thing for my fat fingers was ... I'm 63 don't know a lot about this kind of thing but I wanted to listen to my music in the pool on vacation. I was well pleased . The hardest thing for my fat fingers was changing the silicone ear cups & pushing the buttons ( a little arthritis ) but over all I was tickled . They worked well & I used them 4 hours a day in the pool for 8 days only had to charge once . For someone like me it was nice to be able to listen to my music while my wife & family members listened to their music. I usually don't go overboard on praise but I am 100% satisfied as of this moment. I look forward to using them while doing yard work. The seller contacted me the day I got them wanting to be sure I was happy now I can say YES! 5Perfect For Swimming!!! If you're looking for pristine sound, go elsewhere. This product is best suited for swimmers. Be warned...you need to convert your Itunes music to mp3, which while easy is time consuming (best approach is to convert and create a 'swim' playlist which can then be easily moved to the Flextreme player). The swim ear bud tips fall off easily and you only get two sets, so be careful with them. And I found that the cable you use to connect to your computer isn't perfect (I ordered two sets and one of the cables won't work with one of them). But all this aside these do exactly what they are supposed to....play music while swimming laps. Really takes the boredom out of the workout. I haven't used them for running or weights (have better sounding Bose products for them) but for swimming you can't beat it. Given the low price I suggest ordering a couple. I may order a third just to be safe (and get some extra swimming tips). 5Fetch yourself some Underwater Sunlight! The Bluetooth headphones you already own may have better sound quality and might even have cost less, but before entering the pool, put those in a drawer so you don't destroy them, pop these on and smile. And yeah, you want the version where you can toggle between MP3 and Bluetooth because each has its pros and cons. For instance, via Bluetooth you can equalize the sound coming from your phone and navigate to other music on the phone, take calls, etc. But if you're really swimming and getting your head wet, you'll lose that Bluetooth connection instantly and repeatedly and that's when you really want the MP3 (which is also great for playing those chunky lossless files because the Bluetooth signal compresses the songs on your phone to a lower audio quality, regardless of whether they're 320s or lossless or whatever).Did I mention they work great swimming along the bottom of the pool?!! Isn't that enough?!!And because these work so well with such a tight seal, no flopping wires and good BT connectivity, don't be surprised if you start wearing them as all-around headphones.No they're not flawless, I can see areas for improvement. For instance, with no display, it may drive you crazy trying to navigate between all the songs you can store in the 8GB MP3 player (I keep the tracks to a minimum for this reason). I can also see a future version having some kind of tone control (at least a bass off- low- high button). Also, the charger is at once cool and a setback because it's not a conventional charger, it's a clamp, because I guess if you were dealing with a conventional male plug and female port, water could get in. Setback because you're not going to have chargers for this in eight different places. Just one- so don't lose it!!!But overall they're hella fun - enjoy! 5The Good, The Bad Alright, read up, because I'm gonna lay it down for you. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.The good is the price. Very good when you stack it up against other underwater mp3's. Also the sound is surprisingly good. I like it better that my 66 audio bluetooth headphones that cost twice as much and only work out of the water. BUT, these are underwater headphones so I'm assuming you're reading this review because you're considering purchase to these things swimming (at least that's why I purchased them). Point being, you can use these above ground and be really, truly happy with them, but when you take them underwater that's where things become troublesome. Sigh. Heres the BAD. Kick flips, forget about it, they come loose and water gets between your ear and the speaker and it's all over. You have to stop and suck out the water, then reinsert it again, and again, and again, until you get mad and it starts to mess with your swim, and you want to give up. Incredibly frustrating. I'd say the only way these things are good are if you are doing the breathstroke, and you are (no offense) swimming like Grandma in which case I'd say GO FOR IT! If you're moving in first gear these will probably work just fine, but if you're trying to actually swim (not even kick flips), good luck, because sooner or later they're gonna come loose and then it becomes a losing battle, once the water gets in between you and the plugs, which do not fit very well, you are done for. They don't fit well.. the various size plugs that come with it are not good... I mean they come with a large and a small insert for swimming and then a small, medium, and large insert for wearing them dry. Why would they give you three options for wearing them dry and two for swimming when they are designed to be underwater? Shouldn't it be the other way around?! It doesn't make sense. Truly. They don't fit well in any case. Sigh, again. Now the UGLY: the charge doesn't last all that long. They start chirping pretty quickly (after two hours), or one of the earphones will just suddenly go out while the other one continues to play. It's really weird, and you have to sit there and figure it out. Then you charge it up and then everything works fine, and meanwhile none of this is covered in the documentation, so you have to be clever to figure it out and beat the system. Trial and error is in order if you want to win. Read other people's reviews and I think they'll echo my sentiments. It's like WOW, we all really want these things to be great, and they kind of are, but not really. They are equal parts brilliant and frustrating. Here's the NECESSARY work around that I've discovered to make this headset functional...use them underneath a very tight over the ears silicon swim cap. That keeps them in place and keeps the water out. That's the only way these are worth a dime, other than that they're a steaming hot pyle. 3Buy something else I was really excited for this as I swim alot at the gym. I tried it for the first time tonight and the sound quality was great. I was really impressed with how well everything was working, then about a half hour into my laps the left speaker completely stopped working. I'm wondering if it was a fluke or if this happens often. Would be willing to try again and rewrite a review if offered a free replacement. 1

BUT, these are underwater headphones so I'm assuming you're reading this review because you're considering purchase to these things swimming (at least that's why I purchased them). Point being, you can use these above ground and be really, truly happy with them, but when you take them underwater that's where things become troublesome. Sigh. Heres the BAD. Kick flips, forget about it, they come loose and water gets between your ear and the speaker and it's all over. You have to stop and suck out the water, then reinsert it again, and again, and again, until you get mad and it starts to mess with your swim, and you want to give up. Incredibly frustrating. I'd say the only way these things are good are if you are doing the breathstroke, and you are (no offense) swimming like Grandma in which case I'd say GO FOR IT! If you're moving in first gear these will probably work just fine, but if you're trying to actually swim (not even kick flips), good luck, because sooner or later they're gonna come loose and then it becomes a losing battle, once the water gets in between you and the plugs, which do not fit very well, you are done for. They don't fit well.. the various size plugs that come with it are not good... I mean they come with a large and a small insert for swimming and then a small, medium, and large insert for wearing them dry. Why would they give you three options for wearing them dry and two for swimming when they are designed to be underwater? Shouldn't it be the other way around?! It doesn't make sense. Truly. They don't fit well in any case. Sigh, again. Now the UGLY: the charge doesn't last all that long. They start chirping pretty quickly (after two hours), or one of the earphones will just suddenly go out while the other one continues to play. It's really weird, and you have to sit there and figure it out. Then you charge it up and then everything works fine, and meanwhile none of this is covered in the documentation, so you have to be clever to figure it out and beat the system. Trial and error is in order if you want to win. Read other people's reviews and I think they'll echo my sentiments. It's like WOW, we all really want these things to be great, and they kind of are, but not really. They are equal parts brilliant and frustrating. Here's the NECESSARY work around that I've discovered to make this headset functional...use them underneath a very tight over the ears silicon swim cap. That keeps them in place and keeps the water out. That's the only way these are worth a dime, other than that they're a steaming hot pyle. 3Buy something else I was really excited for this as I swim alot at the gym. I tried it for the first time tonight and the sound quality was great. I was really impressed with how well everything was working, then about a half hour into my laps the left speaker completely stopped working. I'm wondering if it was a fluke or if this happens often. Would be willing to try again and rewrite a review if offered a free replacement. 1
