Samsung has a patent for waterproof earbud headphones

Would you like wireless headphones that you can do without worry leave in the ears even when swimming? Surely you’ve ever thought that it would be nice to listen to music or podcasts, even in the water. Some solutions already exist, but big brands are not yet very good at this progress. Perhaps Samsung, whose recent patent points to, could figure it out waterproof wireless headphones, which would find application even in long-term fitness swimming.

Yes, even the current Galaxy Buds Pro or Galaxy Buds2 models have IPX7 protection, however, this can be taken more as proof of water resistance. Here is a talk about real watertightness. The patent, traditionally captured by LetsGoDigital, shows an interesting combination of existing Galaxy plugs and some kind of connecting tube behind the neck. This removable sleeve should not only connect the “buds” and secure them against loss, but could theoretically also seal some vents.

The great advantage of such a solution would be that the headphones could probably function as classic TWS plugs under normal circumstances. Only before swimming would the mentioned hose be connected, if in the end it was really a hollow shape. We are curious if this idea leaves the drawing.

What activities do you use headphones for?
