Product Description

When you order today, receive a free upgrade to our updated version of Swimbuds with improved audio. Our updated Swimbuds are the same in every way with one defining difference: better sound. Your ears will fall in love with the music you hear through these improved headphones, and so will you!

Swimbuds are 100% waterproof. They are designed to be used in, under and around water. If you are in a “splash zone” like stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, ect, you may want to use the included set of earbuds that doesn’t create a seal for the greatest comfort.

Swimbuds are rugged. We’ve left these wrapped around goggle straps, taken them in the steam sauna and ran them through the wash. They just keep working.

Swimbuds are easy to use. First of all, they stay in! Secondly, with the new extra-short cord, there is no more wrapping long lengths of cord around goggle straps and Velcro pieces! There is less drag in water and no loose cord loops to get caught in gear or moving body parts. The extra-short cord is about 10 inches long and allows you to easily use the iPod underwater with goggles or eyewear.

Swimbuds are comfortable. Although it’s difficult to call anything that lodges in your ear canal truly wonderful, Swimbuds are about as comfortable as you can get, they are made with soft and malleable plastic with no hard edges. To get the best sound quality underwater, you need a good seal, so each headphone comes with three sizes of ear buds – small, medium and large. Choose the one that fits you best!

Headphones available in white.
Compatible with most music players, including iPods

5 reviews for Swimbuds Waterproof Headphones

  1. :

    I’ve used the new headphones for the past couple days swimming, and they are great. They are a significant improvement on the original design. I wasn’t really bothered by the original design, although occasionally when doing flip turns, I’d get caught up in the wire, and usually during a 45 minute swim workout, the thing around my ear would come off a few times. But with the new design, no wire to contend with, no problems with flip turns, and the headphones never need readjusting during my swim workout.

  2. :

    I ordered short and long headphones in my first order and started out using the short buds first. So simple to use and no lengthy cord to contend with. I haven’t used the longer buds yet, because the shorter buds are doing such a great job. They stay in place and all that is left is to enjoy the music, swim, and play in the water.

  3. :

    I called customer support. They suggested that I first try a dab of Vaseline on the bud tips before I put them in my ears. Well, that did the trick perfectly. The earbuds now fit snuggly and comfortably in both my ears for my whole 1 hour swim without any hint of loosening up. The music sounds quite good and is very clear, including bass. Very happy with the ipod and buds!

  4. :

    I received the waterproof ipod & headphones as a gift and have been testing them out in the lake (NZ summer). Not a big person so played about with which size earbud to use.
    Vaseline trick works well, thanks for that

  5. :

    Excellent product, fantastic sound, great customer service – had a problem with the swim buds when the unit 1st arrived, but one call to customer service and a new pair of swim buds was shipped out the same day – fantastic, love the product and the customer service, I recommend this to everyone I see at the pool.

  6. :

    Love the new swimbuds! Have been using SPEEDO MP3 stock headphones and they just became so annoying to get them to stay in for any length of time. The first time I used my headphones they stayed in for an hour long swim. Wow! Never experienced that before and was nice not to have to mess with them. Also, someone else here had posted dabbing a bit of Vaseline in ears to help the seal. I did and will continue to do as it helped me.

    p.s. be sure that bud is securely attached to headphone. one of mine fell off, but was probably user error or to excited to try them.

  7. :

    I love my new iPod! It’s awesome! I have been working out more in the pool just so I can listen to my music. The sound is good and the headphones are great. Thanks guys

  8. :

    My last purchase was actually only for the waterproof swimbuds because my old pair stopped working (they were nearly two years old). The swim buds are working well though; the cord seems to be more flexible – which is good. My waterproof iPod is continues to work as good as the day I received it. The sound quality is amazing! I actually lost my first one and have to order a new one several months ago – I couldn’t stand not having music when I swam! I have shown my family, friends, and co-workers my iPod and have made many referrals to Underwater Audio. It would be great if the product was more accessible in Canada though.

  9. :

    The earphones are absolutely wonderful! The sound quality, even out of the water, is great and I LOVE the short cord…not having to wrap a long cord up and tuck it into my cap is so very nice! I have recommended your product to at several people who swim.

  10. :

    This product is amazing!!!!!!!!! Can’t say enough good about it!

  11. :

    I have used the headphones every day since they arrived. I like them very much. It took awhile to find the ear plugs that worked best. The [plastic guards were really painful when you put a swim cap on so I took them off. I hope the cords are durable so they don’t short out. I prefer the round nubs but they didn’t fit in my ear well enough to keep the water from blocking the sound. I am getting used to the cone shape ones although they take a few moments to secure them properly. it’s great not having the long cord to deal with. I am very pleased with this item and would recommend them to other swimmers.

  12. :

    I love them….but they got stolen! Thus, I’ll be ordering another pair. They are the best under water headphones I’ve used….

  13. :

    I am completely satisfied with my purchase. They are very high quality. I use them all the time and love them.

  14. :

    They are terrific. I think they are a top quality product and the one time I needed to contact your company, you were fantastic. I not only bought your product for myself, I bought it for a colleague who swims. H.

  15. :

    I swim laps at the Y here in Bellingham. I used to have all that case gear to deal with and had to replace them quite often because
    of their closing mechanisms.
    Yours have been magnificent. I have lost one set and reordered and got delivery promptly. The 2 piece ear buds are a smart innovation as
    I always fought the longer leads and the short lead is perfect for me. I swim with a partial wet suit top and just throw the player inside next
    to my upper chest and zip it up. People are surprised that I immerse the iPod in the pool and I always refer to you folks down in Oregon.
    As an old marketing man I want to congratulate you on a very smart looking web site.

    Have been swimming 4 days a week and enjoying every minute. Headphones are working great!

  17. :

    Absolutely love them. I originally used them just for kayaking but I have been able to maneuver them under my swim cap for great listening enjoyment as well.

  18. :

    Wonderful product. I’m very happy with these headphones. Thank you!

  19. :

    I love my headphones. I swim a mile three times a week and they are working great!

  20. :

    The headphones are awesome. I use them all the time in the pool.

  21. :

    This is my second pair of your head phones. I use them several times a week in both salt water and fresh water pools while lap swimming. I have tried other brands. I find yours superior in fit , comfort and ease of use. The shorter wiring is especially nice for attaching to my goggle strap.

    I think your product is great. I have referred lots of curious people to your website. The only negative comment is the amount of people that interrupt my swimming workout to ask if my iPod and headphones really waterproof!

  22. :

    BEST.SOUND.EVER!!!! I’ve been using a device that attaches to my goggles, and I LOVE that, but by the time you purchase an ipod, etc it’s quite costly. I have an old ipod, an older waterproof case, and your headphones and my swims are quite delightful!!

  23. :

    so far so good! I use them to do laps three times per week for about an hour each time….Because prior to your product I had so many issues with other waterproof earbuds I was reluctant to jinx these by telling you how awesome they are…but they truly are and the variety of size covers make is wonderful. love them…thanks for a great product! Nan

  24. :

    I love my underwater headphones.They are the only ones I tried that keep the water out. I want to buy another pair!

  25. :

    I love my headphones and have no complaints. Use them all the time.

  26. :

    Couldn’t be happier with the headphones. I swim with them all the time.

  27. :

    The headphones are quite nice, and I am enjoying them very much when I do water workouts.

  28. :

    I love it, love it, love it ! I’ve never experienced such relaxation while swimming. thank u for making such a great product. the customer service was also wonderful. friendly and fast. thanks so much. I’ll never go swimming again without my I-pod shuffle.

  29. :

    I love it!! It took a few times to figure out which ear buds fit me the best. I find that I swim faster and am out of breath more which is great taking off the weight! I recommend it to everyone at my pool!

  30. :

    The ipod is awesome, really impressing how good quality music I get when swimming my lanes, never want to stop. Great Product. It feels like the music is even more intense when diving.

  31. :

    Just wanted you to know that I use my waterproof headphone nearly every day. I love them! The first pair was great until one of the headphone stopped working. But, so far, I am not having any problems with this new pair and I love using them. I also appreciate that fact that you have emailed me to check on this new pair of headphone for problems. That is impressive customer service.

  32. :

    I appreciate your interest in my satisfaction with your product.
    I am a heavy sweat runner. Yours is the 4th headset I try. While the others had died on me after 2 – 3 runs, your headsets have withstood my runnings without a single glitch.
    So far, I am very happy with your product.

  33. :

    Have been using the waterproof shuffle for over a year. It had worked incredibly well. Listening to NPR podcasts is the only thing that allows me to swim the laps that I do for exercise – 45 minutes to an hour. The original earphones degraded. I was happy to have an excuse to purchase the short corded replacement. Thanks for the great products

  34. :

    Fantastic product and find the white short earbud system works the best.
    Will be recommending these products to others and would like the extend my thanks to you for a trues great product.

  35. :

    I have been using an underwater MP3 player for close to 3 years now. It is great to listen to music while working out in an environment that would normally be without sound at all.

    The headphones that came with the Speedo MP3 player I bought, were both uncomfortable and difficult to keep in place.

    Then I bought and used the H2O Audio Surge headphones. They worked “”OK”" They shifted constantly, failed 3 times and were replaced, albeit under warranty the first times. This last time was when I tried to find some new ones. I tried some others that were too bulky and would shift when I made my turns in the pool.

    Your headphones do work great. The ear buds do a great job of sealing and allowing for good sound quality. These by far, have been the best headphones for underwater use that I have tried. The short cord also lends itself perfectly to being attached to my goggles.

  36. :

    I’m quite happy with your product, I had an hard time trying to find a pair of headphones that effectively block the water and stay in the ear canal.
    Thanks again :)

  37. :

    I’m in love with the headphones! I’ve unfortunately already had to report that the left earbud had lost sound, but you guys have already shipped me a new pair. Even with only one functioning earbud, I continued to wear them. The elongated earbud shape option is pure genius and the Vaseline lip balm you shipped with the headphones was highly appreciated! I don’t know how I ever survived the ever present tangle of long headphone cords in the past. Dealt with that aggravation for years. I’ll never tolerate it again.
    Excellent product!!!!!! Excellent customer service too!
    Thank you!

    I try to swim an hour five days a week at my YMCA. It can get pretty boring having your head underwater for an hour. I purchased a waterproof player and thought I was good to go. The problem was the headphones stopped working after a week! I contacted the company, and they sent me another pair of headphones. The same thing happened to me, again. I then tried two other headphones from different companies with the same results. I was doomed to swim for an hour without audio. One day, I decided to do an Internet search for another pair of headphones. I found yours. When I got them, I was expecting them to not work, just like all the others. BUT something was different with them? They worked, and they are still working! I love it. I can swim my one hour listening to music and podcasts. They time goes by quickly and enjoyably. Thank you for your great product. It really does work!

  39. :

    Great buds I esp like the cord length. Been using them for a few weeks now (about 8 hours) and appreciate how well they seem to hold up. I think the mistake I might have made in the past with all the underwater ear buds is to grab the wires to pull them out. You really have to stop and think through that process .. and always grab by the molded stub. That’s a bit tough because those stubs are tiny.

    Also (and this is true of ANY earbud) when you pull the jack from your player .. you need to think that one through as well .. always pull by the molded handle not the wires. Pulling either the bud or the jack by the wire is simply going to decrease the life of the buds.
    Esp when one ear bud plays and the other does not .. that often caused by that wire yank. Finally I have seen some site suggest crazy gluing the silicon ear piece to the actual bud. I think I will try that, because I often have the ear piece detach and stay lodged in my ear.
