Default Waterproof your Storm?

Please Login to Remove!

I am a swimmer and would like to listen to my Storm (Pandora) while I workout. Does anyone know if a Bluetooth will reach 25yards (with some Waterproof BlueTooth Headsets) or do I need to go with some sort of a waterproof bag and wired headsets and keep the Storm on me as I swim laps?

Class 2 Bluetooth devices have a maximum range of ~10 meters (32 feet).

I have not found one for the Storm but Otterbox does make a waterproof case and headphones for the iPod Nano:
