As H2O Audio's most significant iPod accessory to date, the iDive 300 ($350) is a deep dive waterproof case and speaker system for use with 2005-2007 iPods, as well as newer models if you're willing to wait on additional rubber inserts. The plastic case uses a new locking system with a cam knob to safely seal itself against water intrusion, promising waterproof protection down to 300 feet depth. You're able to use buttons on the case's side to control the iPod's music playback features and -- except for the slide to unlock screen -- navigate menus on touchscreen and Click Wheel iPods. Power and mode buttons are found on its top. iDive 300 includes an amplifier powered by three AA batteries, outputting iPod audio through over ear speakers that can be attached to a mask strap or tucked under a diving hood, as well as a detachable lanyard loop.

Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
