Equinox waterproof headsets
« on: April 02, 2018, 08:02 »
Hi all, has anyone managed to source a set of bluetooth low latency headsets or earbuds that are waterproof.
A little concerned with heading into the surf/wash with the OEM headset.

Hi all, has anyone managed to source a set of bluetooth low latency headsets or earbuds that are waterproof.
A little concerned with heading into the surf/wash with the OEM headset.
I have a pair of Apt-X earbuds which are IPX7 waterproof and I have used them a few times in up to waist deep water
Not Apt-X Low Latency but I dont notice any delay
Mpow Cheetah I think they are
They only last a bit over 2 hours
As long as you keep the control pod just above the waterline the bluetooth works OK
There is also an Aussie company that makes bt. earbuds called Soundwhiz, they are also IPX7 and are Apt-X but (not L.Latency)
Soundwhiz turbo is their name

There are some in Development from a company in the US. (Very close to production)
Have been talking to them and as soon as I can get supply I will order some.

These are from a well known brand and the quality will be there.

I'll make some noise if and when I get my hands on them.

LOl if your in the surf and water flooding over the box, then you sound will be all over the place and cutting in and out.
