Wear Tips

  • Put on your goggles.
  • Clip your iPod to the back of your goggle's strap.
  • Put in your Swimbuds headphones, making sure to run the headphone cables underneath your goggle's strap on both sides.
  • Plug your headphones into your iPod and press the PLAY button!

Care Tips

  • After each swim, unplug the headphones and rinse the iPod Shuffle and its headphone jack under some fresh water. This will help get any chlorine or salt off. Lightly pat dry iPod Shuffle with towel.
  • Only charge the iPod Shuffle as needed. We do not recommend charging for more than 4 hours at a time.
  • Do not charge when wet. (This is the most common cause of battery-related issues.) Allow iPod Shuffle to fully air-dry before charging.
