Need a waterproof/resistant headphone that is also rugged

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a waterproof or resistant headphone that is tough enough to withstand a little abuse. My situation is that I bike to and from work and need something tough enough to withstand rain and occasionally being stepped on by my wife. Also, I hate earbuds with a passion, so over the ear or on the ear please. Finally, my price range is preferably sub $100 but I'll go up if anyone can make a good case. Thanks guys.

Most of the models in your price range (i know) are earbuds. Unless you spend more, and buy the HD-25 I II which are very solid.

These look great. Any idea about water resistance?

The Koss Pro DJ100 and Shure SRH 440 are both $80 and are built like tanks. Literally.

Interesting. My current headphones are the Koss Portapros. They've lasted me about a year and a half. They've been stepped on and superglued back together more than I can count. They've been ridden a lot in the rain and been okay. I think my last rain ride finally did them in. All in all, pretty tough. and I seem to have found the Koss's you mentioned for 40 http://www.amazon.com/Koss-ProDJ100-Headphones/dp/B003X1BEKI I'd love it if I could find a headphone that actually says water resistant though...

40 dollars? Thats a pretty solid deal.

 

The only water proof headphones i know of are IEMs (which i dont really like that much) from cheap companies that dont really care about sound quality like these:
