H2OAUDIO makes a range of waterproof MP3 players and accessories
May 19, 2005 Surfers, wakeboarders, water skiers, and swimmers can now strap on a convenient and secure armband or swim belt and take their iPod out for a day of music-accompanied activity. With over 10 million iPods sold to date, the iPod is the world’s most popular digital music player, which explains why it is also the world’s most accessorized gadget and the darling of the design community and suddenly appearing everywhere from MBA courseware to BMW’s accessory catalogue. All this qualifies the SV-iP4G waterproof iPod case and headset as a killer product. It takes a full-size Apple iPod and enables you to take it swimming with you and pound out the laps with complete choice of the 10,000 tunes in your pocket even while you’re under water! Until now all of the MP3 players we’ve seen that operate underwater use bone conduction (see stories here, here and here) but the H2OAUDIO SV-iP4G uses waterproof leads and a earplugs and is certain to draw a massive response from the world’s swimmers at US$149.95.
