Choosing The Best Waterproof Headphones For Swimming
What should you look for when choosing the best waterproof headphones for swimming? This page was created to answer that question, provide a little bit of consumer information that I hope will be useful to you, and to present my selection of the best swimming headphones with a very short review / description of each one of the products that I have picked out to feature here. You will also find some other resources, such as links to other ipod / mp3 and waterproof gadget pages here on squidoo and on other websites that you might like to check out.
OK, first things first, when you are choosing a set of headphones for use while swimming you really do need to make sure that they are waterproof. I know that sounds like a ridiculously obvious thing to say, but there are some sets out there that may describe themselves as 'water resistant', which means they will never be effected by rain, while almost certainly be fine in the shower, but probably won't stand up to repeated use in the pool. So make sure you do not fall into that trap and make a silly mistake with the product that you choose.
Secondly you should think about comfort - and generally the type of product you lke to use in normal day to day situations, either in-ear or with a band of some kind - will be the type that are more confortable for you in the pool (or sea, or wherever) as well. There are good quality products of each type available.
And the third and final thing is to ask whether you want to buy something for a specific mp3 player such as the ipod. Some products, like the one for the ipod featured below, include waterproof cases for the actual mp3 player as well, and give you external controls so that you can make adjustments without having to get out the water, dry yourself off, open up the case, and generally faff about for 10 minutes just to turn the volume down slightly.
My Top Picks Of The Best Waterproof Headphones For Swimming
With a short description of each one written by me, and a link to the amazon website for more info and to buy now.
If it's got anything to do with swimming, you can bet that a Speedo brand product is right up there near the top for quality, and these are no different.
If you need to get a waterproof mp3 player at the same time as the ear phones, then this is a good option. The player itself is small, streamlined, and fits neatly onto your goggles.

Another Cool Swimming Gadget
This is an excellent training aid that I found recently. Basically the idea is to take the guesswork out of pacing yourself during training by programing the device to give you a beep in the ear for each lap (you where it under your cap or attached to goggles). You can then perfect your race strategy and swim the perfect times for every lap over and over again in training, increasing your chances of getting it just right in the race.
