Many of us who run, walk, cycle or use cardio machines can't live without listening to music while we work out. So why should it be any different for swimming and water sports? Check out what you'll need to waterproof your music.
These cases from H20 Audio ($39.99 - $79.99) are waterproof for your iPod Nano or Shuffle up to 10 feet. They're lightweight, fully sealed, and won't break open if they fall.
You'll also need waterproof headphones that are compatible with these water-tight cases. To see them
These waterproof headphones (white pair $39.99, black pair $49.99) can be completely submerged in water. They not only allow you to hear your music while swimming, but they prevent water from getting into your ears.
Of course, you'll need a swimbelt ($39.99) to keep the waterproof case in place while you do your laps. It's made of neoprene and has a vinyl face cover so you can see your iPod.
So for less than $200 you'll be able to crank up your playlists while swimming, surfing, water skiing, or windsurfing. For that price I might just learn to enjoy the solitude. However, this gear is also great for snow sports or if you don't mind working out in the rain.
