How It Works
The Finis Neptune SwiMP3 uses a unique Finis patented bone-conduction technology via cheek pads to deliver a crystal clear sound underwater.The speakers of the Neptune sit on the cheek, just in front of the ear.
These speakers vibrate the jaw bones and send vibrations to the inner-ear or Cochlea. The result is an amazing audio experience 'that makes it feel as if the music is playing inside your head'.
Finis created the SwiMP3 range specifically for swimmers so they could swim to the sound of the music to motivate their workouts. This waterproof MP3 player offers a inspirational no fuss swimming experience.
Standard waterproof mp3 players rely on the transmission of sound using earplugs. This means reliance on the quality of the earplug seal is all important.
Any break in the the earplug seal means that water can cause the sound quality to become muffled in the ear canal. The SwiMP3 range allows for swimming to the sound of crystal clear music ear bud free.
From personal experience of this product we recommend you use normal earplugs to keep water out of your ears and cut out peripheral pool noise when underwater when using your Finis Neptune. This will give you a clearer sound quality underwater.
Safe Reliable Bone ConductionTechnology
The Finis SwiMP3 range hugely enhances the enjoyment of swimmers and triathletes when in the water.
It is a safe and proven technology that that has been used in phone headsets and hearing aids. Bone conduction audio is used by whales and dolphins to listen to one another underwater.
Finis has offered bone conduction technology to a range of watersports enthusiasts for the past 8 years.
Finis USA Website - Customer Reviews - May 2013
"I love my new Neptune MP3 Player. It really helps me get through long distance workouts as I can listen to my favorite music and audiobooks. The time flies by."
"The sound quality is far superior to the previous SwiMP3. Highly recommend the Neptune".
"Easy to use interface & crystal clear sound with my head under the water. But also just as important when I am heads up at the wall and listening to the Coach call out our next set, with the bone conduction against my cheek and not in my ears, I can hear every word".
"Just got my new Neptune MP3, wow. It is like nothing else I have ever used and really changes the way I feel about my time in the pool".
