Excerpt: We see lots of mp3 players on the market nowadays. If you do realize, most of us will be using the mp3 player in public transport all the time. The last thing you’ll see is someone using the mp3 player while he’s swimming in the pool. Introducing an mp3 player that actually waterproof that you strap down with your goggles while you swim away. It’s called the SwiMP3 v2 from Finis , it’s actually swim gear maker, will actually let you listen to your music in the pool.
Summary: I bought this product because I swim every day, some days swimming for more than two hours. I like the device because it is innovative, it supports water movements, is very easy to put music, and updated the firmware. I do not like that little volume, in each stroke is a dip that disrupts therefore to hear music is perfect, but not to listen to an audiobook. what is certain is that no comparison with others, that makes it unique.
Great concept when it works/newer models unreliable

Summary: Beware of the newer models, even with the X-18 firmware update. I ordered 3 of what was advertized as the older 256 model but was sent the newer 2GB model. Only one of them worked. The other two would not show on the desktop of 4 different computers. I kept the one that worked and sent the other 2 back.
Summary: Its awesome for swimming laps. but it is a bit thick and sometimes stretch out the goggles too much letting water in... great for pleasure swimming, but still needs to improve for performance swimming.
Summary: Over all excellent mp3 player for underwater. It makes long swims fly by. The plastic clip break ez but they are not needed anyway just keep them pinned between goggles and head, and they work great.
Summary: jai acheté récemment ce mp3 après une longue recherche pour un produit de qualité. cest un premier achat de ce genre et j'avoue ne pas etre décue. une fois la galère du premier essayage tout va beaucoup mieux. lunettes indispensable mais bonnet de bain à oublier. ou bien je nai toujours pas la technique. par contre le son est génial et le fait de ne pas avoir les oreilles bouchées par des oreillettes est bien appréciable.
