There are lots of waterproof mp3 players around , but does anyone know of any that are also designed to survive the heat of a sauna ?

Or even if they arent marketed as such , has anyone sucessfully used one in a sauna without it failling ?

    A sauna means its only steam, so if the device is waterproof it will be steam proof. In other words steam doesnt penetrate any more than water.

    But electronics and drives  are damaged by heat . For example most standard flash drives have a max recommended operating temperature around 45C  ,

    Yeah but at that type of heat a human couldn't stand it themselves. I think the OP was more concerned about moisture penetration via the steam. But if its waterproof its not a problem.

    For example look at these : https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/walkman/nw-ws410-series
    which quote "Can handle temperatures ranging from -5°C to 45°C" which is far less than a sauna - I am looking for ones that will cope with around 70 or 80C

    Have a look at the JBL charge speakers. 
    I'm not sure about the heat resistance but they are very rugged and waterproof and are made deliberately for extreme situations.
