Default Waterproof headphones

So i wanted to buy a (wired) waterproof headphones like one of these ( http://www.x-1.com/store/sport-headp...eadphones.html ) after buying a great waterproof phone but i have a few questions

Is it ok for the phone and the headset to be noth submerged in water? Knowing that it uses wire and a 3.5mm jack. Being submerged will it have any adverse effects in z1?


Thanks in advance

Aye, note that the waterproofness is sort of a gimmick... Many phones have pronlems with it.. Soo taking it for a swim on a daily basis is not reccomented...
It's more of a good to have in case your phone mistakly drownes....

I swam with my z and and also my new z1 daily for weeks in both the swimming pool and the sea and also listened to music on waterproof earphones in deeper water than recommended as well.
