H20 Audio: 100% waterproof headphones, iPod case

Take your MP3 player 12ft underwater, if you dare

Given the fact that listening to music on an MP3 player while exercising helps improve physical endurance, it's a real shame – for swimming-types – that water and electricity don't mix. Luckily, H20 Audio's Surge in-ear headphones and Amphibx armbands are 100% waterproof…

Amphibx armbands are inspired by wetsuits - tight fitting Lycra for your iPhone, iPod or other slim-line MP3 player – and it's a concept easy enough to grasp. Waterproof headphones, on the other hand, are far more interesting. If you've ever dropped one of your ear buds into a cup of tea you'll know what we mean.

Surge in-ear headphones are waterproof to 12ft (3.6m) and include a waterproof 8mm neodymium driver and a waterproof gold plated 3.5mm jack. Each pair comes with five different-sized earplugs so your ear is nice and watertight.

For iPod shuffle-lovers, H20 Audio also does the iSH2 headset. Your shuffle sits behind your head in a waterproof case.

Anything that enables us to listen to music while tackling the monotonous task of swimming lengths in a pool full of shrieking kids is ok with us. Unfortunately, the thought of precariously strapping our prized iPhone onto our arm before hitting the surf (or a rock) as the press picture suggests, isn't very appealing.

Amphibx armbands start at $69.99 (depending on the size of your guns), Surge headphones cost $59.99 and the iSH2 headset will set you back $79.99. Buying details here.
