Absolutely awesome product! Used with Drycase phone case.
on June 27, 2013
Just returned from a Stand Up Paddleboarding work out. Used the Drycase combined with the Drycase Earbuds with Mic. Worked beautifully! Wasn't sure if I'd like them as I normally use Sure EC4 or Bose earbuds for (dry only) workouts. The sound was great. Have been using the Drycase for quite a while for various "wet" adventure sports ( Kiteboarding, Kayaking, SUP) with no problems. The case lets you operate the phone for texting, but you can't hear the speaker or talk through the case to the phone mic. Never thought about it until my son used the one I bought him for his small boat after he cut himself pretty bad on an island. He was able to use the phone to text for help but couldn't use the phone without taking the phone out of the case. Decided to get the Earbuds and Mic after that. Mic works great, even when wet. Wife said they sounded great on her end (much better than the Carbon Jawbone I stopped using because of poor sound transmitting). I you only want to listen to music, the buds w/o mic are half the price, but you really can't use the phone function w/o taking it out. Never tried them for actual swimming or total submersion. But for use in a generally wet environment (or one that has that potential) that will destroy an expensive iPhone, this product is the ticket. Cheap insurance that works very well.
