Not overly impressed with this unit. Sure, it has a swivel design, meaning you can never lose the cap, but it has an awkward clip on it, so sometimes the lid swings lose, making a somewhat annoying clicking on occasion, and if you are of the hairy-chested persuasion, I would NOT recommend wearing it next to your skin at all.
The biggest issue I found with it was that after a relatively short drop of less than 5cm to a desk, the two small, plastic clips that hold the casing halves closed at the plug-end snapped, leaving the unit continually on the border of spilling it's internal chips onto the ground if you weren't careful.
Overall, pretty good for the price, but nothing of any spectacular value. Nothing I would choose over any other fully-mac-compatible unit.
