Waterproof headphones

Waterproof housings have been available for CD players and MP3 players for awhile, and you can get waterproof headphones, too.

H2O Audio, a maker of waterproof and ruggedized sports accessories (including models designed for iPods), has begun shipping its third generation H3 waterproof headphones.

The company introduced the world’s first waterproof and underwater headphones in 2005. The new H3 has been upgraded to provide improved sound quality in and out of water, and has a redesigned sportband for action sport use. The H3’s can also be worn as earbuds for travel, hiking, biking or lounging at the pool.

H3 features include: 10dB greater sound output (than the original H2O underwater headphones); improved bass response; improved sound out of water; adjustable neck band to handle action sports; Aquatic Silencer Earplugs for improved comfort, noise reduction, and waterproof seal; Reactive Coiled Cable to eliminate cord tangles by moving with you during active use.

Suggested retail price is $49.99. Available at Apple stores, REI, Dick’s Sporting Goods, CompUSA and surf/skate/snow stores. To shop online or to find other dealers, see
