Inside X-1Our Story

Breaking The Barriers Of Sound


Powered By H2O Audio Technology, X-1 Creates The Most Advanced Audio Solutions For Athletes With humble beginnings as a graduate student project in southern California, H2O Audio quickly grew to become the foremost leader in waterproof, weatherproof and sweatproof headphones, cases and accessories for aquatic athletes. With over a decade of consistent technological innovation including 7 registered patents, the original waterproof sound company has evolved to the next level as X-1, providing audio solutions for a broad spectrum of athletes across many disciplines.

Inspired by the Bell X-1, the first aircraft to break the sound barrier, the team at X-1 set out to perfect a line of products that break down the barriers of sound, allowing athletes to harness the power of music regardless of sport or climate. Whether you’re a triathlete, swimmer, runner, kayaker, snowboarder, climber, weightlifter, or a gym goer, X-1 offers audio solutions that can withstand everything from trekking through the mud to running in the rain to diving 12 feet underwater.

After a decade spent working alongside the most demanding athletes, X-1 arrived at the perfect fit solution, offering 6 styles of headphones and up to 8 ear tip sizes to ensure that products are comfortable and fit securely during rigorous activity. Don’t believe it? X-1 backs its products and patented technology with the best warranty in the business – if you ever have a problem, simply return the product and you’ll receive a new one, no questions asked.

Since it’s proven that music can significantly reduce the perception of effort and increase endurance during physical activity, X-1 empowers athletes to train and perform at their peak with music, regardless of sport and whatever Mother Nature throws at them.
