So without waiting any further, let’s take a look at our list.

9 Best Waterproof Headphones in 2019

Pyle Waterproof Swim Earphone

These earbuds are designed to withstand full submersion in water, especially during swimming or water sports. It comes with sealed ear tips, allowing you to enjoy the music without any of the water seeping through. The headphones can be used wirelessly or with a wire depending on your preferences. But if you’re planning to use this while swimming, it is highly recommended to use it wirelessly. The cable length is around 4 feet, which is adequate to enjoy music from your smartphone. The company offers three interchangeable earbuds for maximum flexibility. The design of the earbuds is also worth mentioning as it can be worn for hours regardless of the aquatic activity you’re engaged in.

Naturally, these earbuds can be used even while running or working out, so it offers you great flexibility with your fitness routine. This offering by Pyle is available in White and Black variants, so there’s no dearth of color options. The best part about these maritime earbuds is that it’s one of the most inexpensive headphones you can buy. Customers can easily fetch this on Amazon for under $20. Be sure to have a closer look.

Mpow Flame

Mpow is known for its wide range of music accessories, particularly headphones. This particular offering is not completely waterproof, but can withstand rain and sweat alike, so you should have no problem with these as long as you don’t take them swimming. These are wireless over the neck headphones that rest nicely during your workouts without slipping out of place easily. This is also true because of the way it is placed on your ear with the built-in ear hooks. The company talks about the CSR chip and Bluetooth 4.1 working in tandem to offer crystal clear audio to listeners.

The battery of these earbuds can last up to 9 hours on a single charge, which is pretty decent for workouts and running. It can charge itself within 90 minutes, which is a real plus for wireless headphones. However, the company recommends avoiding turbo chargers and instead use the cable that’s provided with the packaging. It is worth noting that pairing the Mpow Flame with your smartphone is instantaneous, so you’re good to go as soon as you turn on the headphones. The company currently offers these earbuds in Red and Light Gray variants. Mpow offers a 45-day money back guarantee if you’re unsatisfied with the product. This is on top of the 18-month warranty provided with the product. You should be able to find these headphones on Amazon at pretty cheap prices.

Swimbuds

Most of us who love swimming are deprived of decent headphones to use during the activity. But if you look carefully enough, you might be able to find a gem like this one. Aptly named Swimbuds, these wired headphones enable music to your swimming or water sport sessions. It comes with a gold-plated stereo jack which in the company’s words is 100% waterproof, keeping the material safe from corrosion. The flanged ear buds are designed to stay in place even during flip turns underwater. The Swimbuds also comes with a waterproof audio extension cord if you need a bigger wire.

The Swimbuds packaging comes with four ear-tips to choose from, helping you find the perfect fit for your ear. The company also offers an earbud lubricant to help ensure a proper fit inside your ear. Audio performance is pretty decent, which is almost unexpected with waterproof headphones. But it seems like the folks at Swimbuds have done a very good job of providing truly waterproof headphones to the masses. One caveat here is that the earbuds are only available in White. However, given that these are underwater headphones, we don’t see the lack of color options as a negative. If you’re looking for a companion device to use this with, it might be worth checking out Underwater Audio’s waterproof iPod.

Plantronics BackBeat FIT

Plantronics is no stranger to the headphones industry. The company was well known for its Bluetooth mono earbuds, and it was only a matter of time before the company pivoted into consumer headphones. This particular unit, known as the BackBeat FIT is completely sweat proof and also offers resistance against rain and water spills. However, this cannot be used underwater. The occlusive ear tip design of the BackBeat FIT grabs attention instantly and is also instrumental in blocking out background noise.

These are wireless earbuds with no neckband, but simply a wire that can rest on the back of your neck. There’s an in-line remote here as well, allowing you to control music as well as make or receive phone calls. The battery of the BackBeat FIT can only last for 6 hours, though, which is mildly disappointing but expected from wireless headphones. However, a quick 15-minute charge can eke out 1 hour of usage on the BackBear FIT, which is convenient if you want to use the headphones for a short period of time.

The retail packaging includes a carrying pouch, three ear tips and a micro USB cable for charging up the headphones. The seller on Amazon is currently offering these in Black and Dark Blue color combinations.

SENSO Bluetooth Headphones

This is yet another highly capable wireless earbuds that can last for up to 8 hours on a single charge. In addition to this, these headphones are also sweat proof and partially resistant to water, although it probably cannot survive a full submersion. The earbuds use Bluetooth 4.1 with CSR technology built-in for optimum audio clarity and performance. It also packs cVc 6.0 noise cancellation tech. In terms of audio performance, customers can expect rich bass as well as crystal clear audio quality.

The aforementioned 8 hour battery life is even more impressive when we consider the fact that it can charge from 0 to 100% within 90 minutes. The headphones can last up to 240 hours when on standby. The design of the earbuds are also worth mentioning as they use a ear-hook style clip which holds the earbuds together even during a rigorous workout. There’s no prominent neckband here, so the cable will rest nicely on the back of your neck like with a few headphones we’ve discussed in this article. Although there are no buttons on the cable, the earbuds have buttons on them, allowing you to change tracks or answer phone calls.

The company offers a 1-year warranty for this product along with a 30-day no questions asked money back guarantee. The earbuds are available in Black, Red and a mix of the two known as Black Red.

Anker SoundBuds Lite

Anker is known for its high-quality mobile accessories, particularly power adaptors and battery packs. However, the company also makes decent audio products as we’ve seen over the past couple of years. The company’s wireless earbuds, the SoundBuds Lite makes its way to this list for its cost effectiveness and high performance drivers. I also like the neckband design used here, allowing the earbuds to stay in place at all times. It comes with a hydrophobic nano coating and an IPX5 certification for water resistance.

The best part about these earbuds is that it comes with a magnetic design, allowing both earbuds to stay close to each other when not in use. While there’s no in-line remote, the neckband comes with buttons that make it easy to switch tracks, increase/decrease volume or answer/reject phone calls. Battery life is always a big concern with wireless earbuds, and we’re happy to mention that the SoundBuds Lite can last for up to 10 hours on music or 12 hours on phone calls. You can also get an hour’s worth of usage with just a 10 minute charge. Other features like cVc 6.0 noise cancelling tech are also present here.¬†The seller on Amazon is only offering the product in Black at the moment.

Edelin Bluetooth Headphones

While you might not know a whole lot about a company like Edelin, it’s a very well known name in the Bluetooth headphones segment. The company makes quality audio products and is offering its products exclusively on Amazon. While it appears to be a standard Bluetooth headset, the fact that it also comes with IPX7 certification puts it on our list. The design ensures that there are no additional buttons on the cables, by adding buttons directly on the earbuds. This gives users easy access to switch tracks or perform other functions.

There’s a built-in microphone available here as well, so you’re well equipped to make phone calls using these earbuds. What I like about these headphones is the fact that they come with ear hooks which can keep the earbuds well in place at all times. Battery life is moderate at 8 hours, although the company mentions that it can fully charge up in about 1.5 hours. The company provides a micro USB cable with the product along with three ear tips and a protective carrying case. The company offers 1 year of warranty with this product, so you can buy this product with confidence. Unfortunately, there isn’t much in terms of color variants at the moment, so you will have to stick with the Black/Green version.

Phaiser BHS-730

These are extremely portable wireless headphones and comes with Bluetooth 4.1 on board, offering lossless audio and decent range. As you can imagine, the design of these headphones is the real winner here, while the excellent sound reproduction and overall performance are the bonuses here. The earbuds come with Liquipel nano coating to ward off water. While it can comfortably handle splashes of water or sweat, it cannot be submerged. As you can expect, these are not meant for swimming but for running and any other fitness activity. Holding up on the promise of its sweat proof exterior, the company even offers a lifetime warranty for sweat related damages.

The company offers three ear tips and three replaceable wings, allowing you to get the perfect fit for your ear. The memory foam tips ensure that most of the background is blocked from the earbuds. The company promises a battery life of 8 hours with this product. A micro USB cable is supplied with the retail packaging of these earbuds and it is highly recommended to use this instead of any other third party cable. The earbuds are available in five attractive colors, so you have plenty of options to choose from.

AGPTEK In-Ear Headphones

These are probably the most bang for the buck earbuds you can find there. These are wired headphones, which means you will require a waterproof smartphone or music player to use this underwater. It is built to last submersions, so you should have absolutely no trouble using this while swimming. However, it can only go up to 1.5 meters underwater for about 30 minutes at a time. It comes included with a tangle free wire and an extension cable to help you add more length between your ears and the source device.

It uses a standard 3.5mm headphone port, which might be a concern with the newer crop of smartphones that feature USB C ports. While it is made to be used underwater, you can just as comfortably use this on ground as well. The audio quality is pretty decent, although true audiophiles might be left wanting. The retail packaging of these headphones includes three ear tips as well as the aforementioned extension cable. Unfortunately, the company doesn’t offer color choices here, so you will have to pick the Black version here. Be sure to have a look.
