Finis SwiMP3v2

 

This waterproof MP3 player is designed for athletes and pool loungers alike.

Works underwater. Attaches to swim goggles for stable fit. Tunes are easy to load.

Overpriced for 256MB of storage. Supports only MP3 and WMA audio files.

Swimming laps with Finis' SwiMP3 player

 

Everyone has addictions. Some, like crack, heroin, cigarettes, and even coffee, are wrapped up in chemical dependencies. Others, such as the need to obsessively monitor Facebook, Twitter, or the goings on in World of Warcraft, seem more behavioral. ...

Finis SwiMP3 “Bone Conduction” Underwater EarPhones Review

 

Having previously reviewed a few underwater MP3 solutions it was clear to me what I expected from the Finis SwiMP3.  While other incarnations of submersible MP3 players had issues with water always getting in your ears disrupting the flow of sound, the...

Finis SwiMP3 Review and Prices

 

The Finis SwiMP3 (model 1.30.013) is an ultra-compact gadget that lets you listen to your favorite music underwater. This unit is a waterproof MP3 player that dispenses with traditional earphones, relying instead on patented bone-conduction technology...

Finis SwiMP3 v2

 

Take the price and measly amount of onboard memory momentarily out of the equation, and Finis' waterproof SwiMP3 v2 headphones possess at least three traits of interest to audio and water-sport enthusiasts, including any lap-counter seeking to break...

Finis’ patented technology essentially boils down to using two hard-plastic earpieces, or “paddles,” that rest against the cheek bones and transfer audio by vibrating the fluid in the inner ear. Four buttons on one paddle control track selection,...

Finis SwimP3 Surf

 

I think I love the SwimP3. As someone who enjoys the occasional 20 lengths in the local municipal pool, my problem with the activity is that it's dull as dishwater (if not quite the same colour). It's the one solo sport you could never use an MP3...

Great concept, Works well

Expensive

A novel idea, and that's worth a lot, although

Finis SwiMP3 review

 

The SwiMP3 is a unique MP3 player. The manufacturer, Finis, specialises in aquatic equipment, and its player is completely waterproof. It also has some clever features that make underwater listening possible.

The SwiMP3 is pricy for its capacity, and its battery life is insufficient for extensive use on dry land. However, if you want to listen to music while under water, this is the best player.

Product Specifications

The SwiMP3v2 underwater MP3 player is an incredible audio experience. Imagine listening to hours of your own music during your swim workout. The SwiMP3's innovative sound transfer technology offers exception underwater sound quality. Standard players rely on the transmission of sound through air or water causing the swimmer to perceive only muffled noise. The SwiMP3 uses bone conduction - the direct transfer of sound vibrations from the cheek bone to the inner ear - to provide the swimmer with exceptional sound clarity. The SwiMP3v2 is fully waterproof and can be used with all the competitive swim strokes. FINIS has removed the back control console. Easily clips onto any goggles, without taking your goggles apart.
