Interesting. I swim laps a lot, and would love to be able to listen to music of audio books. Anyone know of any waterproof earphones that would work with this?

I echo YuleLoggers statement. Wouldn’t want to do laps with a mini, but a shuffle is definately an option, and the price is pretty good too. Just need some half decent waterproof headphones…

I found these, haven’t ordered them or anything, but they seem reasonable.

I’m also looking for some high quality waterproof headphones.  According to, the waterproof headphones offered at are pretty good, however, they cost $99.95 + s/h and require a $10 adapter.  I’ve done quite a bit of research and haven’t been able to find anything worthwhile.  Does anyone happen to know if the “h20audio headphones” are compatible with the otterbox for iShuffle?  I guess it doesn’t really matter because you can’t purchase the “h20 headphones” without purchasing the “h20 case.”  Any suggestions?

I have a pair of Sony MDR-EX81SL and an old armband from my Marware Sportsuit convertible that I’m gonna try in the pool as soon as I get the Otterbox case. The Sony’s go inside your ear and have a short cord perfect for an armband. I read in another post somebody using Ety’s in the pool.

Anyone and Everyone,

I’m still looking for a good pair of waterproof headphones.  Anyone have any ideas/suggestions?

The Challenger M earphones are high quality isolation earphones that are our pick for anyone who wants to wear earphones with a helmet or during physical exercise. You can even swim with these phones!

Thanks Ed.  The Challenger M earphones look pretty nice, but I don’t believe that they are truly waterproof.  I will continue to research the market and let everyone know what I come across.  Other suggestions/ideas are still much appreciated!
