So, you’re thinking about waterproof headphones. Maybe you’re trying a new sport, maybe you’re looking for a way to spice up a current activity, maybe you’re tired of dealing with less than optimal sound from water or sweat damaging or interfering with your current headphones. But how do you find the set that will best suit you and your needs? We’re here to help! Take a look at the categories below and see which one fits you.
1: The BasicsYou’re going swimming, and you want to listen to your waterproof iPod while you do so. You don’t want to worry about the headphones being damaged as you swim, you don’t want to deal with water in your ears, and hey, maybe you want to use the headphones for other things, too! You need headphones that are practical, provide good sound, and are adaptable enough to use in a variety of situations.
Try: Swimbuds Waterproof Headphones. They stay in, keep water out, and have great sound quality. Four sets of interchangeable waterproof earbuds give you a customized fit. They even come with the traditional round earbuds and an extension cord for more conventional use.
2: The Next LevelSure, you’re going swimming, but your plans are bigger than that. Your waterproof iPod or MP3 player is going to be your faithful companion, and you need headphones that can keep up. You want to be sure you’ve got the best fit and the best sound, and maybe you want some options for different types of activities, too.
Try: Swimbuds Sport Waterproof Headphones. With a short cord, included extension, and multiple sizes of 4 different earbud styles, these headphones go where you go! Whether it’s laps in the pool; water sports on (or in!) a river, lake, or ocean; or running or biking in any type of weather: these headphones will keep up.
3: Easy and VersatileDon’t want to fiddle so much with cords? Maybe you’re a serious athlete. Competitive swimming, endurance sports, multi-sport events like triathlons: you’re planning to spend some serious time in and around the water. You’d rather spend your time seeking that thrill than situating your headphones. Quality and ease of use are important, and reliability is key. You want something that works for everything you’re doing, and you don’t want to spend your time fiddling with your headphones.
Try: HydroActive Waterproof Headphones. Fantastic wrap around style that goes on quick and stays in place. Four different types of earbuds means comfort and function for just about any activity you can think of. In or out of the water, these headphones will fit your active needs. Try attaching your waterproof mp3 player to the back of your hat, headband, or collar to keep the shorter cord out of your way, and keep things simple.
4: Above the WavesFinally, say lap swimming isn’t in your future, but you still want a pair of headphones that you can use safely above or near the water. Take, for example, kayaking, paddle boarding, surfing, aquatic aerobics, even fishing or running in the rain. Your head isn’t spending time under the water, but there’s still enough exposure to liquids that an ordinary set of headphones won’t do. You need something that has great sound quality, is easy to use, and won’t be damaged by a hearty splash. .
Try: HydroHarmony Waterproof Headphones. The lightweight wrap-around style makes them super quick and easy to put on, take off, and wear comfortably. Three sets of earbuds let you get the right fit, the short cord means they can be attached to an iPod or MP3 player on goggles or a headband or hat, and the extension cord makes them all the more versatile. Noise isolating technology and speaker placement give you great sound. The price is great, and best of all? Yep, 100% waterproof.
