What is the difference between the General Use and Swimming headphone adapters?

Last Updated: 10/25/2012 7:39 pm

Both of the LifeProof headphone adapters are waterproof.

However, the swimming adapter is required if you plan to use your case underwater for extended periods of time (more than an accidental drop), whereas the general use adapter is required if you want your headphone's in-line microphone to be functional.
