UBanana uCan Waterproof MP3 Player

UBanana uCan Waterproof MP3 Player

Considering that most of us get our music fixes from iPods or other MP3 Players, it is not surprising that we want to take our audio experience into the water. If you are the type that wants your music in the pool, you could invest in something that will keep the MP3 Player waterproof, such as the Atlantic EGO iceBar2.

Or you could take the whole MP3 Player and make it waterproof, at least up to 3 meters. This is where portable media players such as the uBanana uCan come in.

You may notice that the UBanana uCan sort of resembles the Opera Headphones that we reported on a few weeks ago. I don’t think that there is any copyright infringement going on here. The design is meant to fit on the back of the head, so you don’t have to worry about any pesky cords.

However, I can’t speak about the Opera on this, but the uBanana uCan can float. I guess this is for those times when you dive in and the UBanana slips off of your head. It should be a lot easier to retrieve when it’s not at the bottom of the pool.

The Ubanana Ucan is available for pre-order for about $154. It comes with 1 GB worth of memory and a battery life of about 15 hours.

  1. The device looked so cool I had to have one. I’m a swimmer and have been listening to music since I used to strap a casssette deck to my back (really). I ordered in July 2008. They wrote with an apology and a delay. OK. Then again. Then again in October with an offer of a memory upgrade -“free”. Then again in November with a “free” charger. Then another delay…and I never got the device. $180 rip off. Don’t even know if they ever shipped to anyone. I tried to complain to the international BBB but no response. Buy a Finis SwimP3. They delivered and it works well.
