How to Listen to Music While Swimming


Electronics such as MP3 players are designed mostly for dry land. However, with proper devices, you can listen to music while swimming laps or hanging out in the pool with friends on a hot summer day. Waterproof devices are available at local electronic and sporting goods stores, as well as online. These devices work just like average mp3 players, but are designed with shells to keep the water out.

  • Load music onto a waterproof MP3 player to listen to while swimming laps. Some models are available with Bluetooth wireless headphones to make listening to music while swimming easier, while others have wired headphones that wrap around the MP3 player. Their clips secure to your goggles or waistband of your swimsuit.

  • Plug your MP3 player into a dry land speaker to play music throughout the auditorium or outside in your yard. If you keep the speakers near the pool, invest in waterproof speakers. These speakers are available wired or wireless. The wireless models are more expensive but easily mobile. Depending on the model, some MP3 player speakers even include a function to play local or satellite radio stations.

  • Purchase headphones designed for swimmers. These headphones pick up vibrations from sounds outside of the pool. You can play music through an MP3 player dock or stereo, and still hear it underwater while swimming. H2O Audio, Aquapac and Audiobone all offer these headphones.

  • Purchase a waterproof case for your current MP3 player. Apple, H2O Audio and Amphibx all offer a variety of waterproof cases and bands to use with your current MP3 player. These attach to your goggles, an arm band or waistband to make swimming while listening to music easier.
