The OtterBox for iPod shuffle is “waterproof, dustproof, dirtproof, sandproof, and drop-proof” and “keeps your iPod shuffle safe at the beach, pool, river, lake, gym or just walking in the rain,” according to the company. It’s priced at $29.95 and comes with a removable neck lanyard.

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 otterbox.com, the waterproof headphones offered at http://www.swimman.net 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!
