Not bad at all!

 

I get extremely bored swimming laps, and this certainly fixed that problem! There are some negatives, but they are more than made up for the fact that I actually enjoy swimming laps for the first time. It's kind of a pain to set up, as I had to buy a converter to change my music to mp3 format. Also, the headphones are not high quality. My music certainly doesn't sound like my IPod, and they broke the first time I used them. The replacement pair I bought has held up fine so far, however. While the player attaches very easily to my goggles, I have to adjust the headphones every couple of laps. I'm certainly not the fastest swimmer, so I can't imagine how frequently a really good, fast swimmer would have to adjust them. Despite the issues, I would still recommend them.

Speedo - AquaBeat

 

Do you get bored in the swimming baths? Of course you do, which is why Speedo - of skimpy trunks fame - has come up with this waterproof MP3 player that easily meets its, err, brief. ...

Not an advanced MP3 player by any means, the AquaBeat's simple operation and waterproof design is welcome in the water though 1GB is exceptionally small for the money. Slightly cumbersome to strap-on to goggles it might be, but the AquaBeat does its...

The perfect music player for any aspiring Duncan Goodhew or Steve Zissou, just make sure the use you plan to get out of it justifies the outlay.

Listed at around £75 for the 1GB version and £100 for the 2GB LZR swimsuit-styled incarnation, the Aquabeat is not cheap. Do some astute on-line shopping for better prices and the outlay is probably worth it to put the finishing touches on a decent...

This waterproof MP3 player can be used to a depth of 10 feet, and floats to ensure it won't sink if dropped. It supports both MP3 and WMA and comes with 1GB of storage.

Speedo Aquabeat 1GB

 

Have been researching for ages for something like this - the design is awesome, especially the way the bits go behind your ears, and clip onto the back of your goggles - you dont really know you have got it on. The sound is awesome - and it is very...

Today is only the second day that I have used it - hopefully will get better at putting it in my ears correctly after a few more uses - had trouble getting a good seal, so once water gets in between the ear bud and the canal - the sound becomes quite...
