Perfect underwater hearing. Took a long time to receive
I havent' had a chance to use them as it was a Full Six Weeks from when Westone received my impressions to when they shipped them out of their facility. No apologies, no news about why it took so long. I left the country for 2 months (a trip for which I purchased the headphones) without them. Disappointed that the information at purchase was misleading. Hopefully the product will reverse my mind on the matter when I finally get my hands on them.
Spoiler alert: What a wonderful company.
My left ear really hurts when I swim, when the water gets in, yeah, it hangs around for a while and is sore. I am in the pool daily for at least an hour duration each swim, so I listen to music. After a few duds I bought the H20 audible brand and it was easy peezy to set up. I loaded 540 songs on to it, and could still load more. They give you a ton of earbuds to use, lots of shapes and sizes. I could hear the songs, but my left ear, yeah water still came in, then the songs were muffled. So I ordered the molding ones. H20 Audible immediately contacted me, did I really want to go to the expense and might I like to try the cheaper bone conducting style. They then offered me a brand new pair of bone conducting head phones to trial, and what music did I like as they would load up the music and send them to me FREE. I blurted out the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Beach Boys…. A few days later, whomp there it is….and boy were the bone conducting ones great. I did like them, but my left ear, yeah no amount of cotton, ear covering swim caps, various attempts to occlude the water kept my ear free of water and it remained sore. I returned the bone conducting ones and proceeded to get the ear molding ones. H20 audible facilitated my easy return. I went to Denver Health for the molds to be made, and to DH’s credit, when they realized it was for swimming, there was no charge even though they were supplying the molding product, appointment time, ear exam, expertise. They walked me back out to the receptionist and refunded my money. Two weeks later my custom, my choice of color ear molds arrived in the mail. It is absolutely stunningly wonderful. Great sounding, clear music, no water in my ears, time zooms by. Did I say NO WATER GETS IN MY EARS!!! Great purchase with limited retirement funds!!!!! One word of caution, (conjure up your best Elmer Fudd voice), be very very careful on your music choices. Wipeout by the Surfari’s, yeah not such a good choice for this older, slower swimmer.
A swim changing experience !
Exactly as expected, quality of earmolds was great.
As always, Joe in customer support was fantastic.
I’ll happily come back again
