Button

Button:

"Since my iPod is older the button on the band was a little off, but other than that this product is amazing."

Control

Control:
"Not bad, does the job, controls sometimes hard to work with."
_
"But hard to control through the plastic - it doesn't always recognize my finger when sweaty! "
_
"The biggest flaw is that the clear cover makes it hard to use the finer controls of the ipod, such as the volume."
_
"The plastic screen does not deter you from being able to control your iPod."
_
"My biggest complaint is that you can't operate the control wheel once it's in so you either have to make sure you volume and playlist are exactly what you want before inserting your iPod, or do what I did and take a knife and cut out a window around the the wheel."
_
"Pretty easy to put in, you can generally use the controls ok. fits my arm well considering that I'm relatively small."
_
"You're also given a lot of room for adjustment, and the plastic casing over the iPod controls also allow easy maneuverability of the iPod."
_
"As to working the controls it works very well, though not as crisply as it does when outside."
_
"The controls are easily managed through the large plastic window."
_
"It does its job very well, although you can't access the volume controls but that isn't an issue for me."

Fit

Fit:
"Great fit, but it doesn't breathe very well against the skin."
_
"if you have big or even moderately-sized upper arms, it's prob not the right piece of gear for you bc it won't fit well and will loosen easily."
_
"Now my ipod touch is starting to malfunction so I will probably look for the same strap to fit the new ipod nano."
_
"The problem that I had though was it fitting my arm."
_
"I'm a slightly bigger girl and was worried about the fit, but it's perfect!"
_
"Also, most slim cases will keep the iPod from fitting in here (I have a 7Gen iPod Classic 160GB), which can be annoying if the case you use is hard to take off."
_
"The fit is great, it's not very bulky, and materials used seem durable."
_
"perfect fit"
_
"It fits comfortably, my classic fits in easily, but securly and there is room to fit my bluetooth transmitter in and hold it tightly -- to avoid damage to its cable."

Music

Music:
"This makes it very hard to browse music during constant activity likerunning."

"Their Belkin Dual-Fit Armband is fair, fits nicely around the arm but unfortunately it makes it very uncomfortable trying to change the music on the Ipod Classic, and as well while using the Ipod Touch on their other model, while walking and working out."
_
"The only thing wrong is that I have to take my ipod out of it to change the music."
_
"I can finally take my Ipod everywhere I go and enjoy my music and watch videos."

_
"It's great, and I can now use it to listen to music while going out for a run."

_
"The bad thing is you have to push too hard on the clear plastic cover to change anything on the iPod."

Strap

Strap:
"Now my ipod touch is starting to malfunction so I will probably look for the same strap to fit the new ipod nano."
_
"However, after using it for 2-3 years, the strap becomes flimsy and thread to the strap will fall apart."
_
"The case itself is strong enough yet flexible enough that should the strap fail for some reason the iPod will be well protected from an impact with the pavement."
_
"However, when you store it, the strap doesn't have an easy way to tie around the device which makes it a bit clumsy."
_
"The problem is if you have any meat on your arms the velcro that holds the strap on always comes loose, especially during curls or squats."
_
"The armband itself is a nice, soft plastic and the strap fastens very securely around her arm."
_
"The case itself is strong enough yet flexible enough that should the strap fail for some reason the iPod will be well protected from an impact with the pavement."
_
"It's just a basic strap on with a clear face."
_
"The strap has a long Velcro strap making it a good choice for just about any size arm."

Workout

Workout:
"Fits okay, did slip some, but after only three uses the plastic started coming away from the armband, and I'm not doing rigorous workouts where there should be an reason that I could have damaged it or it should be slipping."
_
"It is very hard to take the device out after I finish workout."
_
"It doesn't slide down while running but since it is snug, you do sweat underneath the armband which can be uncomfortable after long workouts."
_
"This is a very good item and is in use already by someone that does a lot of workouts and work perfectly for them."
_
"Neoprene strap provides a good stretch, pretty comfy durings runs and workouts."
_
"It's still stayed on nice and strong throughout my workouts."
_
"It's comfortable and light - I use it to workout in the gym (lifting weights isn't a problem with it, and the band can be adjusted), to run (it doesn't slip off, even with sweat), and even on a casual walk or bus ride."
_
"Holds the ipod great and keeps it out of my way during my workout."
