This article is more continuing information about Swim Training Headphones. We will discuss the benefits of the following seven IPX Ratings, IPX Waterproof for Swim Training and Pool/Water activities in this article and start with the bulleted list and a story below. 

  • IPX-3 Protects against spraying water - Water spraying up to 60 degrees from a vertical position at 21 gals/min at approximately 11 PSI for 5 min.
  • IPX-4 Protects against splashing water - Similar as IPX-3 as water is sprayed at all angles. Sweat-Proof refers to IP’s second digit 4 up to 6, ranging from splashing water to water jets.
  • IPX-5 Protects against water jets - Water projected at all angles through a .24 inch nozzle at a flow rate of 26 gals/per min at a pressure of approximately 4.3 PSI for 3 minutes from a distance of over 9.5 feet.
  • IPX-6 Protects against heavy seas - Water projected at all angles through a .49 inch nozzle at a flow rate of over 211 gals/per min at a pressure of 14.5 PSI for 3 minutes from a distance of over 9.5 feet. Definitely Sweat-Proof!!
  • IPX-7 Protects against water submersion for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter or 3.2 Feet.
  • IPX-8 Protects against water submersion for generally up to 3 feet or more in-depth. This equipment is suitable for continual submersion in water under conditions which are identified by the manufacturer.
  • IPX-9 Protects against close-range high pressure, high-temperature spray downs and water jets. Smaller specimens rotate slowly on a turntable, from 4 angles. Larger specimens are mounted upright, with no turntable required, and are tested freehand with a water temperature of 80 °C for at least 3 minutes at 1450 PSI at a distance of approximately .49 feet.

Friend, swimmer and Paleo convert Jeanne.

After I told my friend, swimmer, and Paleo convert Jeanne about a great set of the Swim Training Bone Conduction MP3 Player Wireless Headsets that we sell and that they are IPX8 Waterproof. She bought a pair for herself off of our website. Jeanne does her swimming and exercise three days a week at the local High School pool so I asked her to tell us what she thought and below is her story.

Jeanne's Bone Conduction MP3 Player Wireless Headset story.

I purchased the Bone Conduction headphones from www.cellularsmartshop.com and they are waterproof. There is several things that I would like to say about them and that they impress me very much.  

 Women in Swim Cap and  Swim Goggles

I took them with me for the first time when I went to my Aqua Aerobics swimming class and I could hear the instructor giving instructions as well as listening to music and I enjoy that very much. Everyone in the pool wanted to know what I was wearing and they were very curious and interested. A lot of them wear hearing aids and they were asking questions in relation to that. A lot of the lap swimmers also wanted to know what I was wearing.

I enjoy the conversation with my fellow Swimmers as it is nice to be able to listen to my favorite music as well as conversations. Another thing that is really neat is that while swimming laps I am able to wear headphones and I am able to listen to music. It is really clear especially underwater and it is really nice sound effects. Overall I am also impressed with bone conduction headphones for not having anything inside my ears that would feel like I was plugged up.

In the last 20 minutes of my exercise routine, I switch from my Aqua Aerobics swimming class and go down to the deep end of the pool and I do more underwater exercising on my own. The lap swimmers go from the shallow to the deep end and as I work out I am lifting myself up and out of the pool with my arms then going back underwater and they are always curious because I am wearing them under the water.

They work really well down there because it’s a lot strenuous type of exercise of lifting up out of the water and then dropping back down under the water. I just want to say it’s just a different kind of experience now. Whether I am in the shower or the pool you know they all want to know what I am wearing and all about them.

IPX8 Bone Conduction Rated Headphones

For the most part, most IPX rated Headphones and Earbuds, in general, come in the range of IPX4 through IPX7 if that is what you are looking for. IPX7 is ok for light swimming and exercise.

IPX-7 says it protects against water submersion for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter or 3.2 Feet. Again that is ok but not hardcore day in and day out every day. You are pushing the limit of these Headphones or Earbuds.

Once you get to IPX8 the headphone market gets very thin indeed. If you want Swim Training Headphones rated at IPX8 the variety gets small. If you don’t want anything in your ears except earplugs or you have hearing damage and you want Bone Conduction the product variety gets smaller still.

You then start getting into Bone Conduction MP3 Player Wireless Headphones. IPX9 is very limited availability of any type of Headphones or Earbuds if you can find them at all.

Swimming, Surfing, Cycling, Running, Driving, Elliptical

For those of you who Train and not just work out

Swim Train Bone Conduction MP3 Player Wireless Headset IPX8 Waterproof

You know if you are doing Swim laps every day that you want something extra sometimes to motivate you or just make it easy. Are you a swimmer or a Triathlete? How would you like to read your homework, a book, a report, or just listen to music while you are training?  Multitasking in this busy world is helpful.

If you download an audiobook that is about 5 hours long. That means 8GB will accommodate about 24 books of that length, give or take a few depending on file type. With the 8GB Headphone set, you can hold roughly 1500 to 2000 songs.

So do you also want to convert your Music and Audio Book Files to MP3?

We have found that you can convert your music with iTunes to MP3 easily in the iTunes program.

How to Convert iTunes Music into Mp3 in iTunes
Step 1: Open iTunes.

Step 2: In iTunes, find the music you want to convert to MP3 and click on them. You can highlight one song at a time, groups of songs or albums.

Step 3: When the songs you want to convert are highlighted, click the File menu in iTunes. Click on Convert (in some older versions of iTunes, look for Create New Version)

Step 4: Then click ok. Create an MP3 Version menu item in the File menu in iTunes. On a Mac, Version Click Create MP3 Version.

This converts the iTunes songs to MP3 files for use on other kinds of MP3 players. The new MP3 file appears next to the iTunes Advanced Audio Coding version in iTunes.

The Story of the Smartphone

The story of the Smartphone is so amazing and interesting it would be hard to make this entire narrative up. It is so intricately entwined in the ingenuity of humanity and the necessity to continue to discover and grow as a species. There is always hope!

5g Mobile Technology Long Term Benefits
5g Mobile Technology Long Term Benefits

by John Mortensen

What Will 5G Mean For Smartphone Owners?

The ultimate mission of cellular data has always been to be on par with Wi-Fi. 4G has come close in many ways, but let’s be honest; we know there are things we can do at home on our computers or tablets that we cannot do on our cell phones. When we are at home, we think nothing of streaming.

Depending on your internet provider and plan, if you have modern Wi-Fi, you may have no data allowance or cap, so some can go to town and binge as many Netflix shows as we like.

However, this abundance of data has not yet crossed over into our mobile lives. Many of us are on data plans, and it is always possible to use up all of our data before we know it. Streaming through our phones is one way we risk doing this, which is why most people are still relatively conservative in their mobile streaming habits, but this is becoming harder to do.

How Bone Conduction Headphones Changed A Partially Deaf Man’s Life
How Bone Conduction Headphones Changed A Partially Deaf Man’s Life

by Sam Smith

Before the holidays, we wrote a blog post called “How Can You Hear Something That’s Not In Your Ear?” The blog's title was inspired by my father-in-law asking me that very same question while we were on a family holiday. As a prolific writer and self-confessed workaholic, I was busy writing my latest article while listening to the Killer's latest album through my Bone Conduction headphones.

Due to Bone Conduction headphones sending the music directly into my inner ear, I was able to enjoy it while I concentrated on my work, but without shutting out my surroundings. I was on a family vacation; after all, one which included dogs and small children all running around together.

It was sensible to keep an eye (and both ears) on them just in case I was needed to do a spot of parenting. Fortunately for me, my Bone Conduction headphones allow this due to their design. Other headphones may have blocked out the sound entirely.

Do You Need to Upgrade to a 5G Phone in a Small Town?
Do You Need to Upgrade to a 5G Phone in a Small Town?

by John Mortensen

I live in remote Alaska where there is barley 3G and don’t see us getting to 4G, let alone 5G anytime soon. For most of my life, I lived in a large city with cutting edge technology and the benefits of living with 4G.

The 5G promise is very exciting for many reasons we list below but do we need a 5G Phone in rural Alaska? The answer is no because there is no connection and if you live in a rural area the answer is more than likely the same for you.

Nome Alaska is 143 miles from the Arctic Circle and you can see Russia on a clear day from Wales which is in the Nome census area and Nort of Nome. If you measure on Google Maps Lavrentiya Russia is 179 miles from Nome Alaska.
