SwiMP3 Review: SwiMP3 Underwater MP3 Player V2 and SwiMP3 Surf
How to choose the right SwiMP3 MP3 Player for your aquatic activities
The SwiMP3 Waterproof MP3 Players have revolutionized aquatic fitness by enabling users to enjoy their collection of MP3 music while swimming, surfing, rafting, or waterskiing. It wasn't too long ago that a swimmer's only choices for music were either a poor quality, underwater AM/FM radio or a bulky and expensive waterproof CD player. Operating as a flash drive when plugged into your computer's USB port, the SwiMP3 Surf and SwiMP3 V2 by FINIS are easy to load with the songs of your choice. However, both versions of the SwiMP3 are designed for use in different environments, so before purchasing one, it is best to look at what you will be using it for when deciding which SwiMP3 MP3 Player will be right for you.
SwiMP3 Surf Waterproof MP3 Player
Whether you are surfing, waterskiing, kayaking, rafting, or wind surfing, the SwiMP3 Surf is a practical and versatile waterproof MP3 player. Using waterproof ear buds to provide the user with great quality sound, the SwiMP3 Surf also keeps water out of the ear canal. It includes an arm strap to keep the MP3 player in place while you have fun and has a built-in lithium ion battery that charges when the SwimP3 Surf is plugged into your computer. The SwimP3 Surf holds approximately 60 songs and can provide up to 10 hours of playback on a full charge.
The SwiMP3 Surf Waterproof MP3 Player is not the ideal choice for lap swimming. It can be difficult to keep the ear buds in place when doing most strokes and the arm band limits your range of motion. For lap swimming it is best to use the SwimP3 Underwater MP3 Player V2.
SwiMP3 Underwater MP3 Player V2
Using sound technology similar to military headsets, the SwiMP3 Underwater MP3 Player V2 offers swimmers a level of sound quality unmatched by any other waterproof MP3 player. The SwiMP3 V2 uses "bone conduction" technology as opposed to ear buds which creates sound waves that travel through the jaw bone to the ear canal. While ear buds can loosen and fall out during lap swimming, and often create a garbled sound underwater, the bone conduction of the SwiMP3 Underwater MP3 Player provides crystal-clear, CD quality sound.
Two pads that house the components and controls of the SwiMP3 V2 attach to your goggle strap so you do not have to worry about cords while swimming. This version of the SwiMP3 holds approximately 60 songs like the Surf and is waterproof up to 10 feet. Both the SwiMP3 V2 and the SwiMP3 Surf are Mac and PC compatible, and support MP3 and WAV formats for songs.
Enjoy summer activities with a SwiMP3
Whatever your water sport of choice is, the SwiMP3 Waterproof MP3 players help enhance the fun factor by enabling you to enjoy your MP3 collection. The SwiMP3 V2 is designed more for use in the pool, and keeps lap swimming from becoming boring by providing high quality sound underwater in a compact device that will not inhibit your stroke. The SwiMP3 Surf is ideal for surfing, rafting, paddling, and sailing. It attaches securely to your arm and gives you hours of great music while keeping water out of your ears. Buy the SwiMP3 Wall Charger for those times when you don't have access to a computer so you can enjoy your SwiMP3 MP3 player all summer long.
