this thing has to be water proof the other day i was wearing a pair of jean and did landry that night and i for got to take it out of my pokket it went thru the whole wash cycle includiing my head phone and it still works.. so these things have to be... there is no other explanation why my ipod sat in water for wat 30+ minutes and still workedd!
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??
I have a first generation shuffle (white 512MB about the size of a pack of gum) and it went through the washer and dryer. Still works perfectly. Maybe the dryer dries it out enough. However, I don't believe that it was made to be immersed in water. Otherwise that would be an advertised feature.
soaked the shuffle in water for an hour and it is still working
i accidentally soak my ipod shuffle together with my pants in a washing machine for an hour. but guess what? my shuffle is still playing my fave music after a month that i've totally abandoned it coz i thought it is already dead..that's what you call a reliable product...
Most electronics, as long as there is no power on it and sometimes even if there is, if it gets immersed in water and is allowed to dry out before use, it will still work. This doesn't mean ir will work reliably immersed in water...such as for swimming laps.
