H2O Audio Announces General Availability of World’s First Custom Premium Waterproof Earphones

SOLANA BEACH, Calif.Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — H2O Audio, the world leader in waterproof headphones for swimming and all watersports, today announced the availability of the H2O Audio Surge Custom Waterproof Earphones designed for lap swimmers and water enthusiasts. With over 10 years of development, H2O Audio built and rigorously tested their custom made waterproof earphones for swimmers and athletes who demand maximum comfort and crystal clear sound.

In partnership with the world’s top audiologists and in-ear experts, Westone Laboratory, H2O Audio developed a proprietary, soft custom molded earplug that is designed to provide a comfortable fit, while sealing out all water. Easy to remove and clean, H2O Audio Surge earphones are available in multiple configurations optimized for lap swimming, surfing or paired with H2O Audio’s waterproof MP3 player.

In order to provide the no-compromise comfortable, watertight fit, customers first visit a local audiologist to create an impression of their ear. Users then send the impressions for custom earplug creation. All H2O Audio Custom Earphones provide a 90-day fit guarantee.

“We have been pursuing the ultimate waterproof sound experience for the last 10 years. After many designs and earplug iterations, we are proud to launch the Surge Custom product line that finally delivers an uncompromised experience for swimmers,” said Kristian Rauhala, founder at H2O Audio. “Runners have long since banished boredom by listening to music and now lap swimmers, too, can extend their yardage while enjoying their pitch perfect music via H2O Audio headphones with custom ear plugs—simply the best underwater headphones on the market.”

Why custom made?
Ears come in all shapes and sizes so when it comes to ear plugs, the only way to achieve maximum comfort and immaculate sound is to have them custom made. Once the domain of audiophiles and rock stars, custom earplugs are now an affordable option for any swimmer or triathlete who wants to experience stellar underwater sound and ‘barely there’ comfort to make miles in the pool melt away.

Pricing and Availability:
H2O Audio Surge Custom Waterproof Earphones start at $159.99 and are now available direct from H2O Audio. In addition, standalone earplugs can also be ordered for existing H2O Audio customers. Visit for more info.

About H2O Audio

As avid watersports lovers, we wanted to extend that use to the pool and ocean. Designed by athletes for athletes, we now lead the field in waterproof headphones and iPod accessories, creating products with superior underwater sound.
