Be careful -- ruined a brand new ipod
on November 5, 2010
I bought this case, along with H2Audio's headphones and a brand-new iPod from Amazon for my husband to use while swimming. We followed all of the instructions and he then took it for the first swim. It worked great for 10 minutes, and then the iPod died. Somehow some water got into the case. I sent it all in to the company to have tested, but they came back and said that it tested out fine and there was nothing they could do (other than send a replacement case).
I must say that everyone I dealt with at the company was very friendly and seemed genuinely concerned about what happened. I also understand that they can't just replace every iPod that people claim has been damaged by their case.
However, I do think that there is a serious problem with this case. My husband was extremely careful, especially since it was his first time using it and he wanted to make sure the iPod would be safe. If the case truly wasn't defective, then it must be far too easy to unwittingly do something wrong that can end up ruining your IPod. In this case, it worked great at first (my husband kept looking at it to make sure no water was getting in). Whatever the trouble was, it was obviously slow to kick in (but just as deadly to the iPod). Not sure what we'll do with the new case and the dead iPod. I just can't justify spending the money on a replacement iPod when I have no confidence it won't happen again.
