In our ongoing quest to improve ourselves, Underwater Audio has begun offering a new kind of headphone to make your upcoming swim or workout that much easier!
Direct from the manufacturer, Underwater Audio is the only place where you will find completely waterproof headphones with an extra short cord AND an extension cord! In our research we’ve found that there are many many swimmers that hate wrapping their long headphone cords around their goggles. Here at Underwater Audio we only want to make things easier for you, not harder. So once we realized this problem we set out to fix it! The result? Swimbuds! 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 don’t create a seal for the greatest comfort. Swimbuds are rugged. We’ve left these wrapped around goggle straps, taken them in the steam room, 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 the 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 with goggles or eyewear. Swimbuds are comfortable as 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! Swimbuds are currently available in white and compatible with most music players, including iPods. When you buy your first pair of Swimbuds you get:
- One pair of Waterproof Short Cord Swimbuds Waterproof Headphones* (long cord also available for purchase)
- 3 sets of interchangeable waterproof ear flanges to create a custom fit
- 1 set of earbuds to use for out of the water
- Hours of underwater audio listening
* For safety reasons, these and all headphones that create a tight seal should not be used below 10 feet.
