Cable

Cable:
"The cord problem is solved by coiling it and using a Velcro strip to secure the extra coiled portion to your google strap."
_
"My main problem is their rather long cable and also a bit cheap looking build quality."
_
"Main problem is that the cord is really long, still working on that part, but the long cord length (around 3 feet) is shown in the product description."
_
"Only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is I cannot figure out why such a long cord would ever be useful, and it's a bit of a hassle when swimming."
_
"I missed it in the description, so it is my own fault; but why would I need a 4 foot long cord for swimming."
_
"Wrapping and re-wrapping the cord around your goggles gets annoying after... the first time."
_
"The sound is great too and the cord is nice and long."
_
"The cable is long enough for the ear phones to be comfortable."
_
"Personally, I think the cord is exceedingly long, but I guess it has to be able to also reach men's swim trunks so with that in mind they are fine."
_
"The cord is pretty long but was never really an issue when tied up."
_
"Works just great underwater with ling cord for swimming"

Comfortable:
"One ipod waterproofing company replaced the earphones for free after 6 months upon my request, which I appreciated but didn't expect.2) sound for swim earbuds is not as good as non-swim earbuds.3) the fit is not as comfortable as non-swim earbuds4) using a little vaseline to help form a really good seal is essential5) be careful when removing from ear after swim!"
_
"The current ear buds I have gotten are made of a firmer, but still comfortable, material that seems to prevent these problems from happening."
_
"While they do provide several ear bud options, they are not a very comfortable fit and the audio quality is not the best."
_
"We didn't bother with the ear wrap elements (not that comfortable).The biggest complaint I have with these earbuds is the fact that the piece that goes in your ear isn't connected to the actual headphone."
_
"Comfort is a big deal to me, and these are slightly painful to wear."
_
"The only thing is, they're not perfectly comfortable."
_
"Good item but not the most comfortable."

Music:

_
"Not very good, they don't stay in the ears the music doesn't sound good."
_
"You can still get music even if you get a water seal failure."
_
"After an hour or more in the pool, these ear hangers can cause some slight discomfort, but that is well worth the trade-off of not having the music cut out and having to constantly interrupt your work out adjusting the headphones."
_
"For music, it is very inadequate."

Plastic

Plastic:
"They also include some around-the-ear grips; although, I wish they had made them out of squishy grip-able plastic because they don't stay on very well when swimming, but this can be fixed by taking the around-the-ear plastic and wrapping the cord around the ear."
_
"I found two minor problems w them.1) The plastic ear hangers keep falling off the ear.."
_
"Cons: The plastic over ear hooks become a hassle when turning if they come off."

"The outer ear hard plastic portion is uncomfortable."

"I discarded the plastic attachments as they were uncomfortable, and I have been fine without them."

"If they could be more easily affixed to the plastic ear bud, it would be perfect."
_
"I remove the u-shaped plastic and they are perfect for using with an armband and swimming laps."
_
"This is easy because this plastic piece is grooved."
_
"The earplugs on it hold out water really well, but my only gripe is about the piece of flexible plastic that wraps around the back of your ear."
_
"Hooking over the ear with the hard plastic piece was also a great touch."

"My phone mp3 player was in my pocket 3 days ago and I swung my hands down and caught the wire, damaging the plug in."

"Unfortunately, even with the three different ear plugs that came with the set, I couldn't get them to seal up well."
_
"Small problem of keeping the plugs in my ear and dropping the buds and loosing them."
_
"The only negative is that I have to be really careful when removing them not to have the plug get stuck in my ear canal."
_
"I bought it for the Diver (TM) waterproof mp3 player as PROPOUSED by Amazon as an accessory, but it does not fit on the player due it use an screw plug and this is a push on modelBig Mistake..."
