Waterfi's New Waterproof Short Cord Headphones Reduce Drag and Tangles San Diego, CA - Three years ago Waterfi began to break the boundaries between electronics and water by waterproofing the iPod for swimmers, surfers, and all active people. Since the beginning, one problem has stood out above all others, the problem of finding a good pair of waterproof headphones. After researching many different waterproof headphones and discussing ideas and preferences with their customers, Waterfi had been unable to find a set of consistently satisfying waterproof headphones. Waterproof headphones that had great sound, stayed in the ears when swimming, had a shorter cord, and are waterproof all the way to the bottom of the pool. Waterfi then decided to create some, and today they excitedly announce that the Waterfi Waterprood Short Cord Headphones are here.
Tested at depths of 200 feet underwater and with an IPX rating of IP8, the Waterfi Short Cord headphones will survive even the most aggressive underwater applications. The cord has been shortened to a concise 11 inches as a direct result of customer feedback. "Many of our customers have called in and emailed asking us to look into shortening the cord to make set up easier and reduce drag in the water." explained Customer Support Manager Matt Junker. The short cord headphones also include specially designed silicone tips that create the most comfortable and watertight seal in the ear canal, securing the seal for kickturns and wipeouts. The jack has also been gold plated to ensure that corrosion is never an issue.
Currently most waterproof headphones suffer from poorer audio fidelity than their nonwaterproofed counterparts. Another constant complaints users have mentioned are the trouble keeping the buds in the ear during swim sessions and excessively long cords that can be a chore to manage.
The Waterfi Waterproof Short Cord Headphones are unique in the waterproof headphone market, set apart by the size of the cord, design of the silicone earbud, and Waterfi blue color. The shorter cord on Waterfi's new headphones gets rid of much of the slack that can drag in the water and be a hassle to manage. The shorter cord also simplifies the setup when the mp3 player is attached to goggles, a shirt collar, sunglasses, hat, swimsuit, or wetsuit.
Waterfi was founded in 2010 to free popular gadgets from liquid-related constraints and allow them to be included in everyday active lives. The company's stated mission: to free people to enjoy an active live through waterproof technology on a waterific planet.
Waterfi began when founder Royce Nicholas created a unique waterproofing solution for the Apple iPod Shuffle. Royce showed the Waterproof iPod to a select group of friends and began to offer it online at various e-commerce sites. The feedback he received for that initial waterproof iPod Shuffle was extremely positive and he soon began to expand that process to other gadgets. The ability to combine beloved electronic devices with water activities has been described by some as "addictive and compelling." As of now, Waterfi is still the only company in the world offering a complete waterproof solution for a variety of electronics, including the , Nike+ FuelBand and the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite.
