Exeze Rider Waterproof MP3 Player

Small and stylish Waterproof MP3 Player with excellent sound both above water and submerged in water which makes it suitable for swimming, diving, surfing, exercising, normal use, etc.

Features

  • 4GB waterproof MP3 player - certified to IPX8 of IEC's waterproofing standard.
  • Earphones - in-ear waterproof earphones for use while submerged in water. The earphones come with earloops and a partly twirled anti-tangle earphone cord long enough to allow fastening the MP3 player in waist height.
  • Earbuds - different sized exchangeable earbuds for the waterproof earphones to fit all ear sizes.
  • USB connector and charger cord in one. This cord is used when connecting the MP3 player to a computer to transfer audio files onto the MP3 player. While connected to a computer the MP3 player functions as a normal high speed USB drive compatible with the usual means of copying MP3 files like drag and drop - also works by dragging songs directly from iTunes into the MP3 player window if the songs are in MP3 format (conversion from other formats to MP3 is very simple in iTunes, see Apple's support article HT204310 for details https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204310).
