Just returned from a Stand Up Paddleboarding work out. Used the Drycase combined with the Drycase Earbuds with Mic. The sound was great. Have been using the Drycase for quite a while for various "wet" adventure sports ( Kiteboarding, Kayaking, SUP) with no problems. The case lets you operate the phone for texting, but you can't hear the speaker or talk through the case to the phone mic. Never thought about it until my son used the one I bought him for his small boat after he cut himself pretty bad on an island. Decided to get the Earbuds and Mic after that. Mic works great, even when wet. Wife said they sounded great on her end (much better than the Carbon Jawbone I stopped using because of poor sound transmitting). This product is the ticket. Cheap insurance that works very well.
