As with any electronics, a cardinal rule of iPod care is don’t get it wet. But if you’re a swimmer who wants music in the pool or a snorkeler in need of a soundtrack, are you out of luck? No! Thanks to the Surge Pro Waterproof Headphones and Amphibx Waterproof Armband combination from H20 Audio. The Amphibx Armband provides a fully integrated, wearable, watersports music solution when paired with H2O Audio Surge Pro Waterproof Headphones. The H2O Audio Amphibx Waterproof Armband combines waterproof technology borrowed from H2O Audio’s deep dive housings with the wearability of a sport armband, so you get the ultimate hybrid of waterproof case and sport armband. Meanwhile, the Surge Pro incorporates H2O Audio’s patented waterproof technology with the same high-performance, Balanced Armature drivers found in professional sound studio monitors.
The unique shape of the Amphibx and specialized materials comfortably grip your arm all the time you’re dropping in, cutting back, or wiping out. Its LatchTight locking closure features a grandular seal that was first included in a product capable of withstanding depths down to 200 feet underwater. It has a ClearTouch window for full operation of touch and click wheel controls found on most iPod, iPhone, or other devices. Its SealTight connector creates a watertight audio jack connection when paired with H2O Audio waterproof headphones and it is designed to float even with a device inside.
The Surge Pro Balanced Armature drivers provide highly accurate sound reproduction featuring rich lows, distinct mids, and crisp highs. It’s the smallest H20 Audio waterproof headphones yet and it includes 5 sets of Elastomer earplugs (XS-XL) and 2 sets of Foam earplugs (S/M and M/L) to ensure a secure and comfortable fit while swimming, running, and working out.
The required headphones are sold separately, and as typical for underwater units, they’re not very comfortable. Serious or competitive swimmers may find that the armband/headphone combination causes too much drag on them in the water. Perhaps this is the reason why H20 Audio has created the Interval Waterproof Training System designed to eliminate drag.
Music player owners who want to take their trusted gadgets for a splash in the surf or a dip in the pool will be well suited by the Amphibx Waterproof Armband and Surge Pro Waterproof Headphones combination.
