MP3 players are moving underwater, and now here's a completely submersible player and earphone, the Fusion DMP from Freestyle Audio. Available in a Hobson's choice of 256MB ($160) or 512MB ($200) capacities, it has a rechargeable battery that will give you 40 hours of underwater music goodness, where you can dive to 10 feet deep without ruining it. It's lightweight, too, weighing just over an ounce. It includes a neoprene armband and a USB cable that looks like it might get in the way.
We've been experimenting with underwater audio, namely the H2O Waterproof Headphones we told you about two months ago, along with an OtterBox iPod nano waterproof enclosure. The OtterBox performed beautifully, keeping the nano dry underwater, although it can't go deeper than 3 feet. The H2O Waterproof Headphones were another story, however, sounding scratchy with no bass response. Let's hope the Fusion DMP fares better.
