If listening to music underwater wasn’t enough, swimming equipment specialists Finis, have devised an mp3 player that you can listen to underwater without using earphones!
Using patented bone-conduction technology Finis have revolutionised underwater entertainment. Standard players use air or water to transmit sound which leads to a compromise in audio quality. Utilizing the cheek bone, the SwiMP3 transfers sound vibrations directly into the inner ear to deliver high fidelity sound. Incredible.
The SwiMP3 attaches to the user’s goggles and once in position will deliver crystal clear audio. By eradicating the need for earbuds, the SwiMP3 delivers effortless entertainment to an otherwise silent practice of swimming.
