Jeff Jarvis Seeks Waterproof iPod Speaker System

Jeff Jarvis, a prominent blogger, has a few items on his wish list that might catch Santa’s attention. He’s hoping for a waterproof speaker system for his iPod to enjoy tunes in the shower, along with a waterproof TV and internet setup, and a Bluetooth-enabled iPod. You can find out more about his wishlist here.

It seems Jeff has a penchant for lengthy showers, and we’re eager to assist with his aquatic entertainment needs.

For those looking to enjoy music in the shower, the Dreamgear BOOM BOOM Multi-Box is a water-resistant option that’s ideal for not only showers but also beach and pool outings, or camping.

It features a convenient swivel hanger for easy attachment to a shower rod, operates on 4 AA batteries, and is available in six vibrant colors. Pricing varies between $10 and $20 depending on the retailer.

Another excellent choice is the H20 Audio SV series, suitable for various iPod models including the mini, 3G, and 4G. Designed for surface water sports like surfing and kayaking, it can withstand depths up to 10 feet (3m) and comes with a waterproof headset and silicone earplugs, all for around $150.

For comprehensive protection, consider the OtterBox waterproof iPod cases.

These cases are available for different iPod models including the 20GB, 30/40/60GB, mini, and shuffle. They are not only waterproof but also protect against dust, dirt, sand, and drops. Prices range from $25 to $50.
