H2O Audio was founded in 2003 in San Diego, California just as a new era of digital music and portable MP3 players began to grow with the iPod. As avid watersports lovers, we wanted to extend that use to the pool and ocean - and beyond. We now lead the field in waterproof headphones, creating products with superior sound in and out of water.     


Designed by athletes for athletes, we originally developed H2O Audio products for our own use. Over the last twenty years, we have perfected a line of waterproof headphones guaranteed to give swimmers, runners, triathletes and watersports enthusiasts the best possible sound experience. We stand by them as the best on the market.


Our Mission is to enhance your sport by delivering a superior audio experience – in and out of water. We continue to innovate new premium waterproof audio products and technologies that inspire and amplify every workout.
