What good are waterproof cases for your iPod when you don’t have a set of headphones to go along with them? A shocking experience, I know. That’s why Otterbox and H2O Audio came around with the announcement of their new waterproof headphones. A perfect complement to the Otterbox waterproof iPod cases, these headphones provide high-fidelity sound with a durable neckband.
Of course, you can’t expect to go deep sea diving with this combination, as the H2O headphones are rated to only survive a depth of about 3 feet of water. That said, you can feel safe and secure as you go skiing, swimming (near the surface), or hiking in treacherous conditions; just don’t let the wires get in your way.
Other features include form fitting silicon earpieces, an innovative “coiled cable” that eliminates tangles, and an “adjustable design [which] allows for comfort.” Look for the H2O waterproof headphones to start shipping on Thursday, priced at about $40.
