They're awesome. IMO the H2O audio's are better than the otterboxes.

go with H20 audios (make sure gasket is in properly) i have read to many horror stories about the otterbox, i have H20 and it rocks but their head phones sound like you are in a trash can. I use skullcandy and never had a problem.

greg!!! i must know what those skullcandy headphonse are, those headphones suck while you're wakeboarding... <BR> <BR>or do you just skullcandy when you don't wakeboard haha

wakegirl8220 10-06-2007 11:26 AM

so what headphones do you buy and from where

rkinsell 10-06-2007 7:32 PM

I heard they sink... be careful

elantz 10-06-2007 7:45 PM

Good call Ryan - They do sink. Curt lost his on a blown BS 180. It came right out of the arm holder thing. I guess there is a lanyard(sp?) that you're also supposed to attach to your arm in case of a bad wreck. He would've saved $500+ if he used it.

wakegirl8220 10-07-2007 12:57 PM

thanks for all the help!

Wired Magazine reviewed several iPod Waterproof cases. <a href="http://www.dailywake.com/2007/08/07/wired-reviews-4-waterproof-ipod-cases/" target="_blank">http://www.dailywake.com/2007/08/07/wired-reviews-4-waterproof-ipod-cases/</a>

They work awesome and if it gets ripped off of your arm it will also float

lovin_the_wake 10-08-2007 9:20 PM

oh sorry I'm referring to the h2O Audio case btw

krkx93 10-09-2007 7:46 PM

do the otterboxes work?

hokiesax 10-10-2007 7:17 AM

the first time i used my ipod nano otterbox i had a fall that wasn't even bad and it popped open and ruined the ipod. Otterbox was cool about it and replaced the ipod and gave me a new box for free. I wonder if in the process of falling its possible to hit the latch with a hand/arm/foot (depending on where you're wearing it) and pop the box open?

wakegirl8220 10-10-2007 4:07 PM

so would the best brand to get be the H20 Audio??
