i think if apple intended the shuffle to be waterproof, they wouldn't have made an apple waterproof shuffle case, that's what i think

the front is pretty much waterproof (the button circle is held in place by a rubberish membrane).
the back siwtch is comletely open for water.
the headphone jack (i assume) isn't sealed.

so basically, probably for splashes and stuff it will be fine, but nowhere near waterproof.

In the rain shouldn't be too much of a problem, as long as it doesn't get too wet. But it's not anywhere near waterproof, so try to limit it's exposure to water.

Just get an Otterbox for it.

PS- I am in no way affiliated with otterbox, etc, etc. I don't even use it, but I would if I needed waterproofing.

swimman makes a waterproof shuffle. but i'll bet everything sounds nasty underwater.
and people who listen to music in the shower make me sad.

but other than that I have no opinions.

Hey ottoveblin, I'd never heard of SwimMan... it's pretty cool. It makes my otterbox look like a big icebox instead.

I'd probably be a little paranoid about taking my shuffle into the water...all naked. Eek!

not water proof

They aren't even close to being waterproof. They aren't sweat proof. I have ruined a couple of these. I sweat alot and wearing one for a marathon isn't a good idea.

It could be waterproof

I've been looking for a waterproof shuffle too! I've seen a few options out there. There's one called Swimman and another called H2O Audio that makes a case that looks like it's had mixed reviews. There's also H2O friendly that waterproofs the inside so you don't need a case. Not sure which I want to try. Has anyone tried any of these brands??? Do they work??
