Default Waterproof MP3s

I have heard that you can get a waterproof polycarbonate MP3 player case designed for surfing, swimming and snowboarding.
They also say that it keeps your MP3 waterproof for up to 10' (3.0m) when paired with H2O Audio waterproof headphones

Is using your MP3 whilst taking part in these activities something that you would do? or, would this detract from your concentration?

There is a similar discussion in the mp3 player or headphone area . Also when out surfing I want to hear the other guy screaming shark or other interesting things like that instead of music. You also have to take into consideration that water distorts sound waves.

Yes there is ninja, they are not particularly popular, but there are a few of them out there. I don't really understand the motivation behind creating such a device, but hey some people want any and every kind of gadget hey can get there hands on.

They are not as rare as you would think amp, of course a higher price tag keeps them from being the most popular choice, but any good shop will have a few on stock. And the motivation behind them is so that you don't get bored while doing your laps at the local pool .

Well, if you're an avid swimmer waterproof mp3 will definitely provide an extra entertainment. I am currently using the Speedo Aquabeat when I go swimming it has definitely increased my motivation. I put most of my favorite music on it and just listen to it when I do my laps in the pool. I also took this waterproof mp3 player when I went snowboarding at Utah and it really enhanced my snowboarding experience. Summer is just around the corner and I am planning on bringing this gadget with me on the beach and maybe even wear it when I go surfing.

Thanks Darcy for sharing such useful information.Waterproof MP3 players are more comfortable to use. You do not need to deal with complex ear panels that are difficult to adjust. The benefits of waterproof MP3 players include the fact that you can listen to your favorite music no matter where you are. This has made them a great purchase for those who love sport and swimming. Generally, a water proof MP3 player casing is built from strong polycarbonate material to Known. Not only does the use of this material help in the waterproofing of the device, but helps to protect the player from accidental shock caused by another object hitting it or if it is dropped.

Using Bone Conduction audio transmission the SwiMP3 waterproof MP3 player provides the highest quality underwater sound without ear buds. 2GB of storage holds approximately 500 songs, or 30 hours of music. Swimmers can listen to music, audio books, podcasts and more, all with incredible clarity.




EDIT:
If you want to list your audio/home theater gear in signature, that's fine. But I won't tolerate links that advertise a business (spam). If you want to advertise your business, contact the Admin about advertising costs on the site. Thanks
