H2O Audio announced a new pair of headphones that is waterproof and works with your cell phone. The new Surge 2G Contact Headset features an in-line waterproof microphone and speaker. The company says the headset will enable you to "communicate via cell phone while underwater," though we have to admit, most of us don't talk on our phones while under water. Still, we can see where this may be useful for someone who needs a durable set of headphones as well as a headset for their phone. The new Surge 2G Contact Headphones are waterproof and sweat proof. They are priced at $69.99 and come with five different ear tips.
