          Decent, but there are alternatives

          Comments about x-1 Surge Contact Waterproof Headset:

          I use these buds for portable audio around work, commuting, and traveling. The overall sound quality is decent enough. Build quality is also pretty good.

          On the downside, I don't find the rubber tips on these buds very comfortable. They seem a bit stiff, and the sizing seems off for my ears. The stiff cord is also annoying when you are trying to pack these up to get off the plane, leave the office, etc.

          Unless you are particularly in love with this brand, I would strongly recommend checking out alternatives from Sennheiser, Sony, and Skullcandy.

              Comments about x-1 Surge Contact Waterproof Headset:

              I am very impressed.

              I have used this for recording comentary and doing instructional kayak videos. I spent a lot of money on alternatives to make sure I had something that would work. I tried microphone with my droid phone, a droid app called simple recorder & a dry case B&H # DRDC13, stick on wind screen from B&H, and it worked amazingly well. Usually experiments like this do not work so well. In this case it was flawless. The sound I recorded came out really good. Even in the wind.

              The bonus part of listening to music when on the water was great. It does not have the quality sound my $120 non water proof head set has, but to get decent sound on a water proof mic for this price makes me happy. I am going to buy another one just so I have a back up.

              Comments about x-1 Surge Contact Waterproof Headset:

              Purchased to use with my X-1 Amphibx Fit waterproof case. There are no volume up/down buttons so there is limited function, but the single button on the microphone allows it to be used with Siri. Clip is not useful so I removed it.

              Overall works well. Sound is okay. Ear bud fit is a little tricky. Once you figure out which ones to use (trial and error) they stay put, but I've only tried with cycling. Looking forward to use in swimming pool.
