imageOtter Products has introduced a redesigned waterproof case for 4G iPods and iPod photos. The OtterBox protective case features a waterproof membrane that lets you control your iPod through the case while keeping your iPod “safe at the beach, pool, river, lake, gym or just walking in the rain.” It also offers a hard screen cover, external headphone jack, and a belt clip with integrated earphone cable management.

The OtterBox is available in two sizes — one for the 20GB iPod and one for 30/40/60GB iPods. They’re both priced at $49.95.

Where can you purchase waterproof headphones?  I assume that Otterbox does not sell the headphones to go with the box? (as I could not find them for sale on the site).
