Water or wet environments

I am curious to how these hold up in water or wet environments I’m wondering how they might hold up as an alternative to hearing aids when I go kayaking or hiking on rainy days

Re: Water or wet environments

Hi AkTrailMix,

 

Thank you for your interesting question.  I can't recommend Hearphones for use while kayaking. You might be fine hiking with a hat, or biking if your ears are protected from the rain. 

 

Here's an excerpt from the Bose Hearphones Owners Guide.

 

'"Do NOT submerge or expose the headphones for extended period to water, or wear while participating in water sports, e.g., swimming, waterskiing, surfing, etc."

Is it possible Bose might develop a sport version that could be a bit more durable just a thought

Hi AkTrailMix,

 

Thanks for the suggestion.  While I can't comment on things that may or may not be in production, we are listening.

 

How are you enjoying your Hearphones?

I haven’t purchased them yet the intrigue me, I would rather trash a $500 device than my $5,000 dollar hearing aids, with my more risky enjoyments
