If you’re looking for a waterproof MP3 player for swimming the JLab GO may be the perfect fit. The great thing about this MP3 player (with headphones) is that you can use it for more than just swimming, like running or working out at the gym.
100% Waterproof. Unlike a lot of headphones that are just water resistant, these MP3 player headphones can be completely submerged and still pump out your favorite tunes.
Headphones and MP3 Player. Unlike the Apple Waterfi you won’t need to purchase a set of waterproof headphones as well.
Great Bass Response. Get ready to be pumped up with some overpowering bass.
Awkward Earbud Fit. It’s hard to say exactly why they felt awkward, but they just didn’t feel as comfortable as we would normally like.
Have you ever been snorkeling or hitting the lap pool and just thought, “Man I wish I had my tunes with me!” Well, JLabs has solved that problem with their JLab GO, which are completely submersible MP3 player headphones.
The one thing JLab got right for sure is sound quality. A lot of people may complain that the mids and highs are sub par, but this is a workout people. We need some serious bass to get pumped up (at least most of us do) and that’s what you’ll find with the JLab GO. So, sound quality was a plus for us.
We mentioned above that the fit was a little awkward and we assume JLabs knew this as they also included 7 pairs of ear tips to help achieve the right fit. The MP3 player headphones are extremely light considering they include headphones AND an MP3 player, but they will take a little time getting used to as opposed to just conventional workout headphones.
If you typically swim with goggles or a cap don’t worry JLabs thought of that and included a brief description on how to achieve a good fit with goggles in the owner’s manual. In addition they also walk you through the main buttons on the MP3 player, which are: on/off, volume up/volume down, next/previous song. You’ll have to eventually memorize where these buttons are
As for getting music on the MP3 player it’s a simple as plugging in the USB cable (included) to your computer and uploading the songs, nothing really fancy there.
Overall this is a nice little MP3 player for pretty much any workout and especially for those who want to take their music underwater.
