    If you were wise enough to keep your ears above water and close to the boat to avoid the music cutting off in the middle of a Cannibal Corpse song, would it be a reasonable decision to attempt such a brave move?

    The airpods were never advertised as waterproof. With the amount of holes in the airpods I think it would be result in liquid damage. They are ok to workout in because your ears are not a major source of sweat glands. Swimming/snorkeling/diving will kill the airpods.

    Even if they were waterproof, wouldn't the water muffle the sound anyway?

    So I ended up doing this and my airpods no longer work. I'm suing Apple now.

    Looks like someone forgot to enable Snorkel Mode in settings.

    As long as they are oriented the right way. Breathing straw pointing up from your ears it should be okay.

    If they were the Steinberger Guitar Apple air pods then you might have a chance :)
