Rockin’ The Deep End

Mixing electronics and water never seemed like a good idea in the past. And most people have quietly resigned themselves to listening to music exclusively above the waterline. Now, however, new aquatic freedom awaits audiophiles the world over.
H2O Audio offers three different types of waterproof headphones available for those who want to keep on jammin’ even when they’re under water.
These include Surge Headphones for the diver, waterproof up to a depth of 12-feet; Trax Headphones for the swimmer, rated to a depth of three-feet for about 30 minutes; and Flex Headphones for the entry-level waterproof head-phonophile. These have a low waterproof rating, but come a little bit cheaper.
All of these headphones come with a one-year warranty, but are expected to last much longer than that, the company says.
“We’re very happy with the sound quality our headphones produce,” says Dana Swanson, marketing manager at H2O Audio. “So we innovate more around fit and comfort.”
