FINIS ‘Duo’ Underwater MP3 Player Review - Swim with Swagger

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Duo,” a recently-released underwater MP3 player from FINIS Inc., a highly advanced subaquatic music player lets both serious and recreational swimmers listen to their favorite songs, instrumentals and more while water-bound and without earbuds to boot!

Finally, getting in a good swim and listing to your favorite tunes need not be mutually exclusive.

This is because the Duo uses incredible patented bone conduction technology, whereby audio waves are actually transferred through the cheekbones and into the inner ear.  The result is crystal clear sound that’s better than what you’d expect with earbuds.

To use the Duo, simply place the sleek and aerodynamic two-piece MP3 player over each cheekbone underneath the strap of your goggles for a super secure, unobtrusive and comfortable fit. From there, swim and sway away, enjoying uninterrupted music while underwater. 

Specs-Tacular

Because the Duo is compatible with iTunes, it’s easy to transfer files onto the device—and not just music! Audiobooks, podcasts and other audio files can also be placed on the device, making swimming even more satisfying. Put language learning or other educational content onto it, and get smarter while your swim! 

With readily accessible control buttons, it’s easy to change and navigate through the tracks as you go, pausing, starting and stopping the audio playback on-the-fly. Gold plated connection pins allow for quick and easy file upload and charging, also preventing corrosion from the water that it comes into contact with. In fact, the Duo is entirely waterproof and can withstand up to 7 meters for 30 minutes. The lithium-ion battery provides up to 7 hours of use on a single charge.

In addition, with a 4 GB capacity that can hold up to 1,000 songs (unprotected MP3 and WMA files) or 60 hours of playback, there’s plenty of room for many hours of music, podcasts and audiobooks. So there’s no need to miss a single tune while submerged ever again. Also nice looking, the device is also available in two color combinations: dark gray/mint or black/acid green.

For its part, FINIS continues to drive innovation and the evolution of waterproof bone conduction audio transmission technology. Indeed, its Duo underwater MP3 player, currently priced at $199.99, is ushering in a new era of aquatic tech that will entertain, motivate and otherwise benefit swimmers and enthusiasts of all types. So whether you’ll be spending hours in the water training for an event, pursuing fitness conditioning or just enjoying leisure time in the pool, the FINIS Duo is certain to elevate the experience.
