What keeps you entertained when you hit the gym? I’m sure most of your answers would be a mp3 player or flirting with that gorgeous guy/girl next to you. But let’s stick with audio for this review. Wearing headphones when working out is very common these days. But the main problem is that most headphones aren’t sweatproof or waterproof. I’v had many headphones ruined because of heavy sweat that gets into the headphones causing a short. That’s where H2O Audio Surge Waterproof/Sweatproof Sport Headphones come in.
The H2O Audio Surge Headphones were designed by athletes for athletes. It solves the problem of having to replace sweat ruined headphones. It’s designed to be 100% waterproof/sweatproof and submersible down to 12 feet underwater. The cable length is a comfortable 3.9 feet.
My pool has already been winterized and closed for the season so I’ll be using a glass of H2O for the water test. I submerged the Surge headphones for 30 minutes while playing music through it. I could hear the music resonating through the glass jar. After 30 minutes, the Surge headphones still work as advertised.
8mm dynamic drivers with a max power of 5mW drives the Surge headphones. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to have enough bass to provide great sounding audio. It’s probably caused by the fact that the audio drivers are sealed to be waterproof and sweatproof.
The H2O Audio Surge Waterproof/Sweatproof Sport Headphones cost $49.99 direct.
