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 Waste of money These headphones are marketed as waterproof SWIMMING headphones but I don’t think I have ever used a more infuriating and useless piece of technology. The MP3 function switches to Bluetooth as soon as you hit the water, rendering the headphones useless as Bluetooth doesn’t work underwater. Think you have the headphones locked on MP3? Nope. Guess again. The sound cuts out and switches back to Bluetooth as soon as you push off from the wall. These are basically awkward, bulky, and overpriced wireless Bluetooth headphones. Save yourself the money and headache. Do not buy these if you’re looking for swimming headphones. Useless money grab.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for swimming, non waterproof, loses 90% volume One week old JBL Dive, soaking wet inside 3 hours after swimming, lost 80-95% volume! That black textile like film gets soaking wet (non hydrophobic coated!) and perhaps allows some water through into the headphone thus you cannot hear anything hours later either. That film shall be waterproof, watertight and hydrophobic material whatever its purpose is...! And the silicone caps shall be specifically designed for swimming, for water tightness in various shapes and sizes if not heat forming material for individual shaping! JBL you owe me like 20 Euros refund and a JUMP model because I will not swim in this...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best activity driven headphones I got these a week ago and I am glad I did. They fit great and I have tried to get them of by violently shaking my head and still not been able to. This is very important if you like to take your music along for your activities. The music quality is also superb for the price. I feel the secure fit helps with consistent music being pumped. The last activity based headphones I had would become loose around my ears and the music would keep waning out in terms of volume. The pair being water resistant surely helps. Once I went straight into the shower without realising I was still wearing them and no issues. Great headphones if you are seeking them for music during activities.

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.

Product Q&A

How to switch from shuffle to consecutive play

Asked by: dzfbadrh
these responses are two years old - is this ever going to be fixed? For an mp3 player specifically for swimming, the fact that it doesn't shuffle drastically reduces it's usability. I'm actually stunned that it went to market without resolving that - after "playing music", shuffling is probably the most important function of a workout mp3 player. Will this ever be addressed?

Hi, what distance will the Bluetooth work? I.e could I leave my phone on the pool deck and swim 25m still connected?

Asked by: Kaylea
The problem with the bluetooth setting and the pool is the touch sensor and the water. You can't lock the headphones in bluetooth mode, only mp3. I tried using bluetooth in shower and found my unit going crazy trying to take the touch commands from the water.

If I am wearing the headphones and they go into sleep mode is there any way to wake them up without taking them out of my ear and allowing the automatic power on function to initiate? Or is there a way to turn off the 5 minute sleep mode?

Asked by: Golfer4CU
To be honest, this was the most horrible design decision for an otherwise capable sport headphone (after unintuitive and jumpy touch controls and lack of voice prompts). And could be fixed by fw update. As much as I admire JBL products for their reliability in the audio range, this put me off from buying any more products.

How do I create playlist with the MP3s?

Asked by: Another_Ryan
An alternative option is to rename the files and set the same number for the songs that you wanted to be part of a playlist. (For example, 0 - name of song by name of singer/band.)

Bluetooth only connected the first time and will not reconnect ever since. the bluetooth light keeps blinking and when trying to connect to phone, it says device not within range. What do I do?

Asked by: jquach
Figured it out last night. Make sure you are not using the mp3, off so switch to Bluetooth. Next on your phone locate the Bluetooth connection of the headset and remove it from your phone. This will restart the Bluetooth signal and your phone should be able to find it again. I tried it several times moving from the mp3 to the Bluetooth and it seems you have to forget the Bluetooth device on your phone in order to get a connection every time you use the mp3. Hope this helps.

i cant connect phones to PC it doesnt appear as USB do i need any driver? Windows 10 here

Asked by: jrms2
1. Place the MP3 music files that you want to transfer to the Dive headphones on your computer, where you can find them again. The sequence is not important, they will be played in alphanumerical sequence. If you want to have a special sequence to your tracks, you can add a number as the first file name. 2. Connect the Dive to your computer with the USB cable. Please use the cable that came with the headphones, since other USB cables may be wired for charging only, and may not work. 3. Your Dive will now pop up in your explorer folder overview as a new drive. Total capacity is about 991 MB. 4. Now you simply drag-and-drop the MP3 files from their location onto the Dive, or you mark the files, copy them and paste them onto the Dive. Do not use folders of any kind, and do not try to place other file types on the Dive's memory. MP3 files with a resolution of 320 kbits/second is maximum quality possible. I hope that these steps will help. Thank you and have a great day!
