£60 This wa­ter poof case and head­phone set from Aquapac are sold sep­a­rately at £30 each, and in the­ory should pro­vide a neat so­lu­tion for blast­ing tunes while you swim. Both items are wa­ter­proof to IPX8, and the mid-sized case will just about hold an iPhone 7. There’s a head­phone jack in­side, and also an arm­band or lan­yard for at­tach­ing it to your­self. In the wa­ter the touch­screen on our phone didn‘t work per­fectly, so it’s best to set your mu­sic be­fore you start. Sound from the head­phones was crys­tal clear, but we only lasted about four lengths at a plod­ding pace be­fore the ear­buds came out and the wires were all over the place, so it’s not re­ally suit­able for proper pool train­ing. We think Aquapac prod­ucts work best out of the pool – the case would be great for hik­ing or run­ning in wet weather.
