Rated 1 out of 5 by from Twist Lock Doesn't Lock Effecting Sound Quality I bought the endurance dive 1 month ago based on the in built MP3 and of course the reputation of JBL providing great sound. Used purely during cardio and weight training I have become frustrated with the lack of lock in place and that this then effects the sound quality you receive. I have tried all of the different ear buds but nothing seems to work. It seems to me that they are too small, the cable is too short, ear piece too short and this tends to cause the system to rotate out. Especially once wet and when moving.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So Conflicted About These I think these sound really good and maybe if I was just using them for land workouts they'd be fine but I'm a swimmer and I have a HUGE problem with these. The MP3 lock function is EXTREMELY touchy and difficult to make happen. It says you are supposed to tap twice and then hold for 5 seconds to lock into MP3 mode for swimming but it only works 1 out of 40 times that you try it. The trick is to tap twice so fast it almost feels like you only tapped once. It's a major issue because if you can't get it to lock on MP3 mode while swimming they are USELESS. Everytime you go underwater they switch back to Bluetooth which is so dumb because Bluetooth doesnt work underwater anyway. Once I got the MP3 lock to turn on after FOURTY FIVE MINUTES of tapping and trying (I am not the only one with this problem) it was a great product! The hooks are a little big for my ears and don't even think about trying to put your cap over the top of your ears because it messes with the buttons, but the sound is surprisingly really good and they didn't fall out at all during a 2 hour lap swim full of flipturns, so I'm impressed in that aspect. I would have given these 5 stars if the MP3 lock function actually worked as its supposed to, but again, if that doesn't work most of the time then these are absolutely useless to me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mp3 troubles Into which file on the jbl must the mp3 music files be copied to? I followed a tutorial and copied and pasted my mp3 into the jbl endurance dive (called USB o computer) but I can't get it to play any songs. It works in Bluetooth mode but I can't get the mp3 to work. Please help!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very sensitive touch control makes it turn off No matter what I have tried, Bluetooth or internal storage, it does not work when swimming. I don't know if it is because the touch is sensitive so when it touches the water turns off. Also very sensitive when hair touch it as well. The touch control is very sensitive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a feather on your ears I am a fan of JBL products and I am using this product for a while during my workout and was really impressed with the sound quality. The ergonomics of this product is taken care so well, they were so comfortable even wearing for longer hours. This is a perfect product for your daily workouts and running.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate It sounds fine controls are not 100% reliable the volume control seldom works its easier jus yo manipulate it with phone. I don’t use the swimming but for Paddling and being on water it won’t die If you fall in It kind it cumbersome to first have to convert tunes to MP3 to install

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Controls are too sensitive!! I wanted them to work, but they don't. At least not for lap swimming. Yes, I put them into MP3 mode BEFORE entering the pool. Even with them in MP3 mode, they would switch to bluetooth or pause the song every time I turned my head to take a breath on the right side. The difference in pressure between the water and the air when breathing was enough for the device to think I was touching it and switch modes or pause the song. If you're a snorkel swimmer it might work perfect, since your ears stay at the same level the whole time. Sound was great underwater, loading music is easy, the contols are just to sensitive. If there is a different way to LOCK them besides entering into MP3 mode, the manual doesn't list it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally perfect Before I bought, I saw many negative comments online, some people only gave 1 star. After I used for a week, I feel it is perfect for swimming and those poor guys just don't know how to use it. Bluetooth wave can't transmit in the water, so no Bluetooth product can be used under the water, OK? Before you go into the pool, just switch to MP3 mode and double click the right hand side and hold for more than 3 seconds to LOCK it so that it wouldn't have any issue when you swimming with it. Use your goggle bands to keep it on your ears so that no water will go into the earbuds and the sound volume won't be decreased. The sound quality is also NOT BAD.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work as advertised 1 star as earphones that can be used while swimming. 3.5 stars as bluetooth earphones. Outside of the pool (weights at the gym, on a run, work around the house) these have pretty good sound when they're in, but they don't seem to stay in well, no matter which earpiece size I choose. They stay on, but will pop out with any jaw movement (breathing, eating, talking, etc). Inside of the pool though, they never stay in the local media mode. They're supposed to be able to know when you're in the water, but it was still registered as a touch, so as soon as I would go underwater, it would revert back to bluetooth mode. And because they have an issue with staying in the ear, water would rush in and negatively affect the sound quality as well as nearly come off when pushing off of the wall. It takes a while for the sound quality to go back to when they were dry too, which is a bummer. The touch controls work well and didn't take me long to get accustomed, but the auto on/off when putting them on is a bit of a double-edged sword: It's great that I don't need to press and hold a button to turn them on and that I don't need to remember to turn them off. However, nearly every time I would travel with them in a bag, they would be opened and connected to my phone, sometimes without me knowing until I reached my destination and then they were dead. Putting them in the case doesn't help either because is small so they have to be sort of crammed in there and also flexible, so other items can shift them which will turn them on too. This means it's impossible to keep these in your pocket. The range is very nice though. No hiccups noticed there and I haven't noticed any delay when watching videos. I've never had a problem with them connecting either, which is great. However, playlist mode is awkward. I don't recall seeing that you can't have your music organized in folders when you move music to the device. No music would play if it was in a folder. Also, it was very inconsistent with playing the music on the device: Sometimes it would play as soon as I tapped the side and heard the beep, but other times I would need to double tap to skip before a song would play. If these managed to work while in the water, then I would imagine this would be another hurdle to overcome. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this product two weeks ago, and the only problem I've had is that sometimes they don't stay in my ears, but for the most part, they do. (I'm learning to put them in better.) I really love the mp3 feature, which is the main reason I bought them. I think the only thing that wound make them better would be "wings" added to the ear tips for better stability. (Not sure if that's a possibility, but just a suggestion.) Also, not being able to control the music through files is another small issue, but not a deal breaker. The Endurance Peak would be perfect if they had an mp3 player. I haven't gone swimming with them yet, but I will soon, and will let you know how that goes. Also, the cord could be about 3 inches longer. Overall, it's a great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems in water! I've been using those headphones for around 25 times in a pool, and none of those trials were finished with positive result. Each trial finished with water getting into both or one ear. I've tried all 3 different sizes of rubber plugs, two different head-caps and no cap, swimming different styles. I couldn't find any help on-line for this issue and I assume I'm not dumber than average user. JBL should put some solutions/ best practices in the internet since this have to be quite common issue. If I wanted to get cheaper ones for running/ bike/ or anything else, I would. Those were supposed to be a product for swimmers and this feature fails totally. The rest is OK, but my rating is for swimming not the other applications.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Major control problems I really like these, when I can get them to work. Does anyone have problems with them constantly switching back and forth from trying to pair bluetooth to MP3? It takes almost 10 minutes before they decide to stay on one mode. It automatically does this itself, which is incredibly frustrating. The other thing is mine will skip the end of songs on MP3 mode, even when in lock mode and not sure why?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No problems! I have been using these headphones for the last 10 times swimming. I have experienced many of the negative problems that others have left reviews about. I have over come all of them. First was getting music onto the mp3 player. My files were there but the mp3 player cannot open a folder, so be sure there are none, just the music track file. Next was the touch sensor. If your hands are wet or hair, the sensor is too sensitive and you will have problems getting out to do what you want. I put then in and LOCK it before i ever get wet. Just putting in the headphones in your ear will only last a few laps before water seeps in and muffles the music down to less than a whisper. These are earbuds and are not designed to be loud or powerful, a little water does a lot to the sound. Try using different size ear cushions and put your Google band over the tops of the rear hooks top keep them in place. So far, since doing this i have not lost any sound quality. Don't take them out of your ear until you are done. If you need to talk or hear somebody, take out the left ear so the right ear doesn't shut off your mp3 player and have to dry off to get it to lock again. I have used these around the gym and still haven't recharged them yet(still at 20%). The sound quality is not the best compared to over the ear headphones. They are little earbuds that have a freaking mp3 player built into them and you can swim with them for under a hundred bucks! How awesome is that?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unusable for swimming & Terrible Usability This review is based on the usage of the earphones for swimming. These are the worst earphones I've ever had. They are advertised to be used for swimming but they didn't work properly. As soon as you get in the water your ears fill with water and you can't hear anything. I tried several sizes of the earpieces with no success. Another big problem is the usability of the product: the locking and switching mode is so annoying and not intuitive with the different touch gestures.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Such a disapointment! Cannot use for swimming I bought these 2 weeks ago. Took it out for a swim and the sound volume on the left ear went low and tinny, and the right goes on and off. I thought it was just a unit defect, so i took it back to the shop and got it replaced. Tried it again yesterday and a similar thing happened. This time both ears lost substantial amounts of treble and volume went very low. I have been using the biggest ear piece to seal the water out my ears, and followed the instructions on the MP3 player to the tee (i.e. only use with MP3 in the water and lock touch controls). I will add that I am not even a sporty swimmer. I just took it out for a couple of laps in the pool. I feel that this product is obviously badly designed and I am surprised JBL did not do any quality tests before shipping it out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable headphones, but... I have had these for a while now and really like them. They have a good strong Bluetooth connection, sound great and are very comfortable. It takes a couple of uses to get all the button commands down. My biggest disappointment is that they are advertised as having enough room for up to 200 songs (which is about right) downloaded to play with the mp3 player function, BUT the file structure actually only allows it to play correctly with 100 songs max. If you put more than 100 songs on it, then the mp3 doesn't function. Very disappointing that this isn't mentioned as the reality is that you can really only use about half the space that is available. Beyond that, these are a very nice Bluetooth headphone that is very durable with great battery life.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted to love these... I just purchased these headphones a couple weeks ago, and while I really do like the sound quality, and are overall good headphones for working out, they are not good for swimming unfortunately. The controls are so sensitive that as soon as I submerge the music will stop and it beeps like its switching modes. Very frustrating especially because I bought these just for swimming.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not practical I keep pausing audio while working out when my arm touch them and sweat (I do sweat a lot) pauses audio too.They turn off if I take too long to pick what I want to listen to. I have occasional problems with pairing. I regret buying this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great FIT, DESIGN, SOUND I'm happy with these! I'm listening to them as I write this! * They fit CLOSE to your head, the soft rubber loop behind my neck is laying on my skin but not tight. VERY comfortable. * The earplugs are ALSO comfortable. They block out all noise because of the tight, comfortable fit. AHHHH. *These are going to be great working out and riding my bike...THEY ARE NOT GOING TO COME OFF! I'm loving this! * The controls are easy, just after practicing for a few minutes. * Phone calls are great too. I can hear them and they can hear me. It wasn't an issue. * The sound is good! The bass is good, treble a little high. BUT...it also depends on how the song was mixed. I love bass and these things rock. * Still have to try them swimming but so far, so good. I'm not sorry I bought them and I would recommend them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was not expecting this... I am a runner that sometimes jumps in a pool to work through injuries... not a triathlete by any means, just do it to keep in shape while working out the kinks. I have nothing to compare these headphones to, since having waterproof headphones is science fiction as far as I'm concerned... and I honestly had no idea they existed. I'll have to say I was pleasantly surprised by these headphones. I have only taken them in water a couple of times. It was seriously unnerving to get in the first time, but shortly after, you sort of forget this isn't supposed to be possible. The sound quality is amazing as with most JBL products. They are very comfortable and stay in place with no issue. It is necessary to lock the controls when they are in contact with water, but they work great otherwise. Also remember to let them dry fully before charging... That's what the manual says and I'm not going to going to test why they say it. They work great as headsets for phone calls. It was in fact one of the first things I did with them and they could understand me clearly. Thumbs up on this. Pairing them to an iOS device took longer than expected the first time, but once paired, they connect as soon as they are turned on. Another thumbs up. They have the most clever power button. A magnet on the right earpiece. When you take them off, the magnetic ends touch, turning off the headset and guaranteeing you will never remove your headphones and leave them on. Brilliant engineering! The battery life is way more than adequate. I've used them for 5 hours straight with no issues. Not really sure how long they last in real world use, but I have not killed them yet. More than adequate for marathon training! And did I mention you can dump all of your podcasts and music in and leave the phone at home? I didn't? Well, you can! Double awesome. Only negative I can point out is that they are slightly heavier than my previous Bluetooth headphones, the JBL Flex. You carry the weight on your ear rather than the neck, which I imagine can bother some people. They are not uncomfortable, but worth pointing out. However, when was the last time you ran with your Bluetooth headphones in the pouring rain? You haven't because you don't have waterproof headphones :) All in all, these headphones were a pleasant surprise and have become my main pair. The controls are super simple, great sound quality and I can use them in any weather condition. Great job on these JBL! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Features! I have been using my JBL ENDURANCE Dive wireless earphones non stop since I bought them. They are water proof, allowing me to swim with them. I have also worked out with them, and they are wonderful! My ears stay dry! The controls are on the earphone itself, so it is easy to use. The sound is impeccable! JBL never disappoints with amazing sound. I love the fact that they are blue tooth allowing me to make phone calls and listen to my music. The only reason it did not get a 5 star rating, is because you cannot stream music while in the water. You must change them over to mp3. They do allow you to store music in them and listen that way, but it takes time to put your music in. Music is at our fingertips now. Overall, these are pretty amazing! Great sound, great features!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features on a great looking device When I received the JBL endurance headphones in the mail I was really excited to try these out when I opened the box. I was very impressed with the product look and feel. When I tested them out I felt the expectation fell short. I really liked the locking technology which seals in the ear but the cord which held the headphones together was a little short and did not keep the headphone secure in my ear. When I looked up or lowered my head the earphones would pull on my ear. The sound of the headphones is really good for mid-to-high range tones but falls short for lower range tones. The Bluetooth works very well and kept my phone connected. The one thing I did not like about the product was the controls. I had a difficult time lowering and raising the volume as well as incorrect actions when the button was pressed. Overall I really like this product and feel this could be improved to make it a great product. The waterproof lock in technology of the headphones with the built-in MP3 player is a win. I feel the sound reproduction and controls could use some tweaking to make it great. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very sensitive controls Received this several weeks ago. read several reviews that stated that they didn't like the sound quality. I think it's a matter just finding the right size earpiece. If the earpiece is too big the speaker loses all of its base and sounds very tinny. When properly positioned these speakers have great Bass and sound great. The headset controls are novel in that there are no hard buttons to push. You tap the headset to pause, play or skip songs. Volume is controlled by sliding your finger up or down the headset. It's a little weird in the beginning but once your used to it, it's awesome. My only complaint would be that it's so sensitive that occasionally I would pause a song by just brushing the earpiece with my hand. I use them for weight training and they stay snugly fit. Much better than other units. Another nice feature is that they auto shut off when u take them out of your ear and turn on when u put them back on. No dead batteries because I forgot too shut them off. Overall a really good set of headphones..haven't tried them underwater sorry. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort and stability I have recently completed a handful of workouts with these headphones. Upon arriving at the gym and realizing that I have yet to pair these headphones to my phone had me a little concerned. I threw these on my head and tapped the right head phone to be greeted by a chime then opened up my Bluetooth settings on my phone and these where ready and waiting for me to pair. This process took under two minutes. It was so smooth. I had perforated my ear drum earlier in the year and have since been sensitive to any earbuds. I was pleasantly surprised at the comfort that these headphones provided. I did not have any discomfort or pains associated with these headphones and any pressure that they may have created while wearing these. In addition to the comfort of these headphones in my ear there was NO frustration of the cord moving and pulling the headphones out of my ears. I have had other headphones that distract me from my workout due to constantly having to re-situate my headphones. I found myself disappointed to realize that I had left these in my other vehicle and was going to have to workout without these headphones. These will be a mainstay in my gymbag!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for Exercise and active lifestyle! First I have to say these are my first bluetooth headphones. I absolutely love them; It is such a convenience not having to be tethered with a cord to a device. I have used these with my phone, laptop, and TV. At night I can watch my television without disturbing my wife while she sleeps. I can get up from my computer and not have to take the headphones out and still keep listening. I have walked over 30 feet away from my device and have not had any lost connection issues. The main reason I purchased these was to have head phones to use while exercising. I never got to use these while swimming as they are advertised to be capable of. However, these are very good for exercise and even running on the treadmill. They NEVER come out no matter how much I'm bouncing around. Another great thing I like is that they are tethered to one another so i can keep one ear piece in and one out and not have to worry about putting the other ear piece in a safe place. 'The battery life is very good; have been using these for 5 days, about 1 hour at a time and still have 50% battery life. The only down fall I have found is sometimes it can be tricky connecting the bluetooth. Sometimes it connects right away and sometimes I have to fiddle with it a few times to get it connected. Overall very pleased I would highly recommend products. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unable to use primary function I was excited to use the Endurance Dive to make my lap swimming less monotonous. Unfortunately the headset never communicated with my computer's USB port and never opened any external storage in which to drop MP3's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They just sound good! remarkable! WOW! I like the audio clearness and noise separation. The incorporated microphone works great for voice calls and had no criticisms about low sound or poor audibility. The built MP3 is really a nice feature, and the lock technology keeps these from falling out even in the pool or shower and keeps the water out of my ears so I don’t need the water plugs when I use these which is really nice. Battery life was just over 6 hours on a charge which is good. With 10 minutes of charging, you get 45 minutes of battery life which is a convenient feature. Overall, if you have been looking for waterproof headphones with built-in storage and MP3 player, the Endurance Dive is your option. The controls took some getting used to so that you advanced the song rather than changed from the internal memory to Bluetooth. They recommend you lock the controls when swimming which I did not do and they still worked fine. The programmed on/off based on magnets in the ear piece is remarkable. I think the ear piece touch controls are a bit sensitive but after using these for a while after an hour or so of listening and using it was second nature. I really like these and highly recommend. They just sound good! Versatile, can use these for any occasion and you can easily clean these too! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you love water, these are for you! If you spend a good deal of your in the water, you will enjoy the Dive. One of the most notable things is the fit. They hold comfortably around the ear and stay secure under most circumstances. I didn't try them while diving from height, or surfing, but very secure while swimming. Three different size buds are included, so you should find one to fit securely in the ear. You'll need a fairly tight fit to maintain sound quality. The controls take a little practice, but work nicely. The most difficult for me was the sliding volume control. On board storage is fantastic, since you can't receive Bluetooth under water and you can leave your phone behind if you wish. I take mine jogging and I can forget interruptions. Overall, well constructed, nice fit, decent sound and onboard storage. If you don't need the water proof aspect, choose the regular endurance line and save a few bucks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound quality Let me start with describing my usage of headphones. I workout daily for about an hour and a half. I listen to my music loud and I do not like when the headphones interfere with my concentration. This pair had the excellent sound quality but fell short on the interfering part. The cord that connects them is rather short so it stays tight to my head and pulls on the earpieces. The second part is the battery life... I can't complain too much but I have used pairs before that stay in a charging case, giving me weeks of play time. No ding for the case part but the cord needs to be bigger. Basic breakdown, the sound quality is amazing but if you have a bigger head... this isn't for you. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel good, sound good, work well. Cool concept I live and run in the rainy part of Oregon. I wanted these so I could run in the rain, and have an MP3 player that I wouldn’t have to carry in my pocket. There is nothing else like this available. The Endurance Dive fits the bill! Also nice to be able to get in the hot tub with them post-run! A cpl words of advice: these are a bit complicated, and have a bit of a learning curve, so make sure you read the directions. Only load mp3, and do not transfer “folders” with the music. Also, do not try to swim with them using Bluetooth as I suspect the negative reviewers might have done. It plainly states in the directions that you must use MP3 mode and that you must “lock touch control” before submerging. These are terrific, but you need to pay attention to the directions. The controls are interesting, as well: no actual buttons. Just a touch sensor. Be patient in learning how to use these, and you’ll love ‘em! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound I like these very much. Comfortable and stylish. Sound if very good. The built in MP3 is very nice. It very easy to add music just drag and drop into the folder just make sure the files are MP3 Format when adding to the headphones. Controls are easy to use and sound quality good for phones calls [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Headphones These headphones are good, I had used JBL headphones in the past and one of my comments was that it didn’t come with a carrying case. These do, and it makes them way easier to track and take care of. When talking on the phone, the sound quality of the other person talking is good and they can hear you clearly as well. Also a big fan of the feature with the magnet on/off where if you take it off your ear it’ll turn off which helps a lot with saving the battery. A few things I didn’t like, I felt that the sound quality for music is just ok. There is not much bass, and the headphones put out a lot of trebble sound. In addition, I had a hard time with no button on the headphones as the “touch pad” didn’t always respond very well. For a new technology, with being waterproof and on board music storage these headphones are very comfortable and I would say worth the price. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to daily workout! I received this product few days back and it was a great addition to my daily routine. I have been using this at my work attending online meetings, listening to video and audio tutorials and the best part of it is, it boosted my daily workout with blasting music. This products fits perfectly in your ears and are really comfortable to wear for longer duration. The touch controls are decent and are really helpful in controlling the device smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Headphones I've Ever Bought I bought these roughly a month ago and have had zero issues. They Connect to my Samsung Note9 and my MacBook Pro for work very easily (typically they connect to my phone first but I just open Bluetooth and tap on the headphones name to end connection.) Sound quality is much higher quality than I expected and I have the JBL Charge 3 and thought that sound was decently impressive. Bass and treble quality are perfect. Not sure if these are noise cancelling but when I have them in I cannot hear others in my office or at the gym which is a huge plus for workouts and work calls. Have not wore them completely under water yet but from what I've read on other reviews people complain about the volume dropping low but I would assume that is because of pressure since you are under water. Transferring music is easy so if you don't want to take your phone with you that's great. Overall, 5 out of 5 stars. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Features and Great Sound! These small waterproof and wireless headphones are really awesome, packed with a ton of great features. Right out of the box (nicely packed and presented by the way) they paired to my smartphone and began playing my music that sounded great. They come with 3 different ear tip sizes and once I put in the large ear tip, they fit in my ears perfectly and the powerhook technology allowed them to stay in my ears no matter how I positioned my head. They hold up to 1GB in music right on the headphones (awesome!) and you can play 30 minutes of music while underwater at up to 1m! These are the perfect headphones for getting exercise doing laps in the pool while listening to your favorite music. They have a 10 minute quick charge giving you an hour of music, or up to 8 hours of music on a full charge. And, they work for hands-free calls as well! Definitely recommend these headphones to anyone looking for sleek comfortable headphones for any activity, but definitely for swimming! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my favorite I am iffy. I don’t do too much swimming but it was nice being able to use them in the water They do work in the water, only for 30 minutes though on the MP3 mode. They did stay in place while swimming and then later while working out and running and various activities. I have had a lot of headphones that don’t do that so I will give them credit for staying in. The buttons are fairly hard to use and they often power off in the middle of using them . Sound quality was good. Overall they are not my favorite [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very functional and simple. I work outside during the day and use these as hearing protection as well as a way to listen to music and take calls. In the evenings that I swim they still have plenty of battery left and allow me to continue to listen to playlists while I exercise.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor connectivity As a runner I have gone through more headphones in the past few years than I can count. My last pair of headphones died the day before a race so I rushed into purchasing these. This pair has been by far the worst pair Of Bluetooth headphones I have ever had. My previous headphones were half the price, but proved to be a way better value. The sound quality on endurance dive is very poor. It is extremely difficult to advance songs. You have to double tap the side of the right ear at the exact right spot or it won’t respond. The comfort level is a little better than average, but the ease of connectivity is it’s worst trait. The headphones are supposed to automatically connect to bluetooth when turned on, but this truly only happens 75% of the time. The rest of the time this doesn’t occur, good luck trying to connect again. This typically takes up to 30 mins trying to turn Bluetooth off and on, on my phone, turning headphones off and on, repowering my phone or a combination of all three. Extremely frustrating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointment I bought the headphones a month ago and have used them for different types of training. Works good at the gym. Good sound quality. My intention of buying them was to have them when i swim. The bluetooth does not work at all as soon as the headphones comes in contact with water the bluetooth turns off. So i downloaded some mp3s and tried a few times but it didnt work either. At first they do not stay in my ears when i swim, and the water seems to activate controls by touch so that the headphones turns volyme down and changes song and so on. Maybe it Schoultz be possible to turn the touch off before swimming. It seems to slip in water even if im in the water not swimming. Therefore i Will rate them a 1 star since they do not measure up to the purpose of why i bought them

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not expect to use it underwater! After using a couple of other JBL products I felt confident that this would be a good buy, I was totally wrong. The lock mode doesn't work which makes it impossible to use for swimming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes swimming even more fun Make sure you read the user's manual so you learn how to lock the touch controls; otherwise the unit will not work well underwater. Sound quality is good as well as battery life. I swim 5x a week, 45 min each and I recharge it every week, however I have never ran out of battery while swimming. My only complaint is that the quality of the in-ear rubber piece is not too good. It is too soft and water can get in your ear easily, affecting sound quality. I fixed this by replacing this part with a set of spare Beats earbud rubbers - which are more firm - and problem solved. As a suggestion, put the headphone under the goggle's strap to make sure is not going to come out while you do breaststroke or butterfly. Nothing like swimming to your favorite tracks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Advertised for swimming- NOT GOOD FOR SWIMMING I bought th e Dive because JBL offers three different product lines for the Endurance headset. DIVE being the one designed for swimmers as judged by the description and the picture of the swimmer wearing them. Clearly, they are NOT designed for swimmers at all and whoever designed these has probably never swam before. So, here are the reasons why the design is flawed and I hope JBL takes note so they can improve this product in the future. 1) The sides of the earpiece are flat with a slight outward angle which catches the water as you swim and makes the headset fall off. The only way they don't fall off is if you wear a swim cap over them. So this issue can be manageable and any serious swimmer would wear one. However, without wearing a swim cap, they are simply useless; no matter how tight you may want to stick them in your ear, the size of earbud you use, or anything else you may want to adjust. They WILL fall off because the design of the sides act like little flaps that catch the water and pull them off your ears. 2) The controls are terribly flawed! Who in their right mind would design super sensitive touch controls that involve sliding your wet finger or lightly tapping your wet finger on the sides ! Did I mention WET FINGERS? Yes, because they are wet, touch sensitivity becomes a big issue which makes it virtually impossible to lock the touch control so that when you start swimming the controls don't activate by themselves. Oh, and once you have a cap over them, forget about any control. So, let me explain. If you want to pause the song, you need to gently tap once. If you want to skip to the next song, you gently tap twice. BUT if you want to LOCK the touch control..... YOU NEED TO TAP ONCE, THEN TAP AGAIN AND HOLD FOR 5 SECONDS ! What really ends up happening is that when you tap the first time, the song will pause... tap the second time, the sing will either skip or the entire headset will switch to bluetooth. IT IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO LOCK!! And you're trying to do all of this with wet fingers... oh.. and a light tells you what mode you are on. The problem is that if you take the headset off the magnetic sides will collapse and the entire headset will shut off !! So, if you take them off to try to look at the light, the entire thing turns off and you have to start all over again!! 3) The sound quality goes from good to virtually no sound once you go inside the water. Either one of the sides will stop working and leave you with the other sound very muffled. I understand you are wearing it under water and I do not expect perfect sound... but I also do not expect one side to stop working altogether. But you can only experience this in the unlikely event that you are able to lock the controls as referenced in #2. Ok design team, so how do you fix this and make a good product? 1) Get rid of the touch control. You have a connecting cord that connects both sides. You can have 3 push buttons on the cord - preferably on the back - that serve as volume controls, skip music and lock. This way a swimmer can easily and quickly be able to reach behind his cap and make any adjustments needed. So, three buttons. The side buttons to advance and skip songs. The middle button to pause or change from bluetooth to stored songs. No need to lock controls because the buttons can't be pressed while swimming!! Genious!! 2) Test your product with a focus group of swimmers! Brilliant! If you're going to create a product line specifically designed for swimmers and call it DIVE, make sure it works first! You can either design it flat but make sure people know to use a swim cap over them. Or you can design the earbuds small so they fit inside the ear and water cannot push them out. Either option works. Make sure your design engineers know how to swim and have then test it themselves. I hope this helps. As for me, I will be returning these to the store I purchased them from and I will be given a refund. But I'll patiently wait until you can design one that clearly works as expected. You have the technology to do it and there is a large market for something like this. Just think of how many people swim, surfers, beachgoers, etc. Nobody uses a water headset because nobody has designed one yet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t buy These headphones are honestly a nightmare. I’ve tried every possible activity with them from swimming, to running, hiking, biking, weight training, yoga, you name it. Every single time I figured I’d give them another chance. They are just an over priced disappointment. It’s basixappy impossible to use them for swimming. In or out of the water, the max volume lasts for 10-30 minutes and declines until the sound is nonexistent. Save yourself the frustration and buy something else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total garbage They don’t hold a connection. I’ll put them on, get them connected and within seconds they lose the connection and I can’t get it back. Today I dropped them and the entire earpiece fell off never to be found again. Don’t waste your money on this overpriced piece of trash. I don’t know about the waterproof part - since I never got the things to work on dry land.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not recommend for swimming laps I bought these headphones for swimming laps. The fact they only last for a maximum of 30 mins in the water then they stop is very annoying as I swim for at least 60 mins. The volume in the water is very low, with splashing etc the volume is not loud enough. Very disappointing overall.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good but flawed. I bought these headphones to swim with at my local pool. I already have bluetooth headphones that are waterproof (backbeat fit) and have tried them in the pool with my phone in a waterproof pouch but the music cut in and out. I didn't realize at the time that this was due to the bluetooth signal being interrupted by water (I thought it was the plastic pouch surrounding my phone). I purchased this device to overcome that failure. Swimming : only works in mp3-mode (see bluetooth water limitations above). For bluetooth you drag-and-drop your mp3 (only) tracks from PC to the device. I accidentally dragged jpeg artwork onto the device and it prevented any of the other music from playing (GO FIGURE). It would help if your music was "normalized" as to volume level as once you play the music in the water your controls are locked and the device will not respond to any prompts. This reliance on mp3 files seems a large failure in the world of streaming music (whether apple or spotify). To place the device in mp3 mode you touch-hold on the R. ear piece for 3 seconds and an audible cue tells you the device is switching to the other mode (bluetooth or mp3). In any mode, play is one tap. Next track is two taps. Last track (or restart same track) is three taps. Swipe up to inc volume (one tick - very slow) and down to decrease volume (one tick again - slow). The controls are the weakness, here. It's easy to accidentally pause the device when trying to adjust the volume. The good news is the music quality is fairly good (some reviewers complain about the high end). The bad news is all of this control goes out the window in the water. In the water (think swimming laps) you have to "lock" the controls b/c apparently the water slapping up against your device will play/pause or switch tracks etc (cause havoc). To combat this you have to "lock" your device controls. As only mp3 mode works in the water, you have to turn to mp3-mode and lock the device then. The manual is a disaster. It's written in a number of different languages but the text is so terse it doesn't express the subtleties of the controls. As mentioned earlier, it's important to "lock" the controls of the device when swimming. To do so the manual suggests you tap twice and then hold down for 5seconds. Unfortunately, this is either incorrectly stated in the manual or just poorly expressed. To learn this (difficult) maneuver, I had to EMAIL TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR CLARIFICATION and then when I had the actual instructions, hold the device on my L.ear and stare at the R.ear to see the visual feedback (blinking lights etc). The user has to express two quick taps in rapid succession (think of music and count "one and" as if counting eighth notes and HOLDING the second tap). Tapping two taps too quickly will result in next track and too slowly will result in play-->pause. This was really, really, frustrating to learn. The manual is terrible and there are no video tutorials which would clear this up in about 5seconds. Once the music is playing in mp3 mode and the device is locked (see two-taps above) you can swim and the device will supposedly stay locked in your ear never to fall out. This isn't always true however. I don't swim very aggressively but even I could manage to get one of the sides to "dislodge" from my ear canal while swimming. This will cause water to get in the device and obscure the audio output from whichever side was dislodged (the effects will continue until the water is completely drained out or the device dries). It would probably be best to wear a swim cap or to have some type of custom fitted ear-pieces to keep as tight a fit as possible. If your music isn't "normalized" to volume level and you get blasted in the middle of a pool lap by high-volume you will have to stop and turn the device completely off (pull it out of your ears and collapse it) to turn off the "mp3-locking" feature and then restart the device and skip to the next track before locking or adjust the volume for that track. If the device ever gets pulled out of your ear and collapses back on itself while swimming it can TURN ITSELF OFF which as other viewers have noted can cause you to turn the device back on and re-lock which will restart the track in question. If the track in question was a 45 minute podcast then you get to start over at the beginning. Foobar. Overall this device shows a lot of promise but has serious compromises. Perhaps with tactile buttons and a locking mechanism that didn't require turning the device off to unlock and a better manual this would be a winner. In its current state the device is a mess of user-interface with poor documentation (manual) that will be a race between you figuring out its esoteric interface and your patience exhausting and you taking it back to the place you purchased it. I plan on purchasing a swim cap before making my final decision to return the device. Good luck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design While it's great to be able to listen to music under water, these are uncomfortable earphones, the touch controls are really difficult to use. If the right earplug should fall out, especially when in water, the headphone is likely to turn off. You will then have to get out of the water, dry your hand and the earphone, start it up again, find the track you were listening to and lock the touch control again before getting back into the water. If you're trying to listen to podcasts then this is a nightmare since it will restart from the beginning of the track and you have no way of fast forwarding.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not work for swimming. I have bought these head phones for my swimming sessions and they just simply dont work well at all. I have tryed all of the ear buds to find a better fit and hopefully improve the way they work but with no luck. The touch functions are annoying and clumsy to use (good old fassion buttons would have been far better instaed of trying to be fancy). Even out of the water they do not seem to work well and for the life of me i cant make the sweet spot last long so that the sound doesn't sound muffled, when i move it just gets worse.......the good thing is they pysicaly fit well and the build quality looks well done.. BUT they just dont work!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Volume is too low to be heard in the water. Product was easy to set up and out of the water has good quality audio, but the volume is WAY too low to be effective in the water. The volume is all the way up and the music is barely audible. At this point I would not recommend purchasing for lap swimming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it but technical issues -- had to return Was excited to have this unit. I swim laps and the MP3 function is great. As other reviewers have written, it takes getting used to to switch between phone mode and MP3 mode, but I now have the hang of it to lock it. Also. the downloading of songs from the computer was a little glitchy. I found that if you try to copy more than a few songs at a time it crashes. By trial and error, I found that doing it in batches helped. The problem I had was that one ear would shut off after being at the top of water in about 30 minutes. After it happened a few times, I called customer support to get a new one under warranty. My only issue is that I did not want to be without it for a few weeks-- so I bought another one to have as a back up while the first was being replaced. Hopefully a next generation version will make the unit more user friendly and less glitchy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything is great I never have issues with Bluetooth connection, I play basketball with these and I place my phone on the sidelines and never have my music cut out. I have a OnePlus 6 so not sure if the Bluetooth on this device is better than others, but nonetheless I'm very happy with my experience. Sound quality is great, with solid bass depending on how you position it in your ear. They've yet to fall out even a little bit despite all the running jumping and dribbling I do. It's only been about 2 weeks that I've had these during the writing if this review but hopefully these will last me a long time. Also extremely comfortable for me personally and the touch features are so friggin cool and way more useful than you might think.
