Hydra MP3 Player

Ultra has just previewed a new, splashproof music player that the company boasts can withstand use at the beach or by the poolside. Encased in rubber trim, the Hydra is sealed tightly to prevent the occasional contact with water from damaging the electronics inside. The trim also helps the jukebox better-resist the drops and scratches common to everyday use, Ultra adds. As a player, the Hydra has features relatively common to inexpensive flash devices, such as MP3 and WMA playback, FM radio, and voice recording. Power is supplied solely by rechargeable AAA batteries for a maximum of 8 hours. Compatible with both Macs and Windows PCs through its support for drag-and-drop music transfers, the new player ships in 1GB ($40) and 2GB ($60) versions next month.
