This just came out: a real waterproof case for iPod Touch. Called iDive 300it is marketed on the site H2O Audio. The "300" is for 300 feet, that is to say 90 meters deep. A pure gadget, in my humble opinion.

As far as I am concerned, I prefer to continue diving with the sound of my bubbles in my ears.

Apparently, there is a whole system embedded to handle the touch screen via buttons on the side. The earphones are attached to the mask strap. And the toy still costs nearly 350 USD ...

Good, I admit. I already have a box waterproof for my iPod, actually... but not for diving! Mine only costs a few dozen euros and is simply used to protect from humidity (and salt and sand), on a boat or on the beach, my precious iPod, which also acts as a hard drive to store my photos while traveling.

You'd be ready to dive with an iPod on your ears, wouldn't you?

  1. I think I prefer to hear my bubbles!
    And if we add the ipod to the torch and the camera, the divers will become real Christmas trees with all this stuff that dangle!

  2. Same, I prefer my bubbles, under water it's a place where I do not want to bring things from the surface. But the idea is good.

  3. @ Marie-Net:
    Long live the bubbles! But for the side "Christmas tree" I think they also planned to sell the thing that goes well to hang on the same site ...

    @ Denis:
    I do not know if the idea is so good ... For the moment, you are three divers rather "geeks" to tell me no, definitely, you prefer the sweet sound of bubbles!

    @ Marie-Julie:
    Yes, totally agree. The musical atmosphere, it is added eventually after!

  4. Yes, the world of silence takes a hit! However, I have already used music under water (well before the invention of the iPod!) To furnish the hours of endless landing (up to 7 hours ...) after a few dives underground ... muscular.
    There is currently a blooming of more or less waterproof gadgets. Proof that diving is becoming more democratic. By the way, congratulations for your blog, it's getting more professional 😉

  5. Long live the bubbles that sparkle in our ears. And why not take his phone?
    Now thinking about it, a trip with a mantas flight on a well chosen music that reminds you of good times, it can carry you even more, right? like a bird in the water.
    The blog better and better !!

  6. Ben, me, I do not dive ... So ... uh ... Well ... nothing to say on the subject !! But, I find that divers already have such paraphernalia ... that, a device and more ... Kisses!

  7. Ben, like Helen, I do not dive, and just like her, I think that still embarking a machine as small as it is .... and then, what becomes of "the world of silence" if it is as it is above, in and out?

    That said, everyone does what he wants, his ear canal belongs to him!

  8. @ Francis Le Guen:
    Oh, of course, for the "muscular" divers, pros and teks who have to bump endless stages, the gadget, suddenly, is not quite one. But this new box is more, I think, the followers of diving "leisure" (well, those of them who want to show off below the surface ... 8)).
    As for the blog, yes, it is evolving little by little towards another dimension ...

    @ Éric Branger:
    Hum! And why not SMS and emails under water? And a coffee machine, while we are there, just to wake up quietly with a little kawa watching the mantas!
    No, really, the music, must stay on the surface. The live mantas show does not need any sound accompaniment. Delighted that the evolution of the blog pleases you!

    @ Helen:
    I agree! No need to worry about something extra. Which adds nothing, in my opinion, to the pleasure of diving.

    @ Lydie:
    Very just. Even if "the world of silence" is not quite silent for divers. Below the surface, there is the sound of bubbles and breathing, the "plop" of ears that "pass" (or not) on the descent, and sometimes the rumor of the surf near the coast or a reef, and even strange, shallow crackling around coral areas teeming with life. Not to mention the various alerts that can emit the others of the team ... So many sound signals that participate in the dive. Covering them with music from the "top" would be a shame.

  9. Uh, it works for my MP5 too ❓ It's for my nap without hearing the sound of other people's bubbles still poking around the bottom looking for little critters... 😛
    A + corinne

  10. We are calm and calm in the water thanks to the sensations, the breathing, the spectacle of the underwater fauna ... I think that the music is superfluous. And could even be stressful, coming to disturb the other sensations.

    But as you say, first you have to dive !!!


  11. Anything big, even if it's really a beautiful zik to dress up beautiful scenes, but hey ... No better on a film once back, no?
    And the security? The ears are used to listen to what is happening around you, to listen to your partner also no? And shit, we isolate ourselves too. I like to share my dives, and a look is enough most of the time.
