FINIS announced the SwiMP3 2G, an upgraded version of their underwater MP3 player that holds up to 2GB of music. The SwiMP3 2G utilizes patented bone-conduction technology to deliver clear sound underwater, perfect for swimmers and triathletes looking to eliminate the watery silence of swimming lap after lap. The SwiMP3 2G which offers twice as much music as the original SwiMP3 1G for a total of 30 hours or approximately 500 songs.
The unique and patented bone conduction technology utilized in the FINIS SwiMP3 2G takes enjoying music to another level by transmitting high-fidelity sound underneath the water. As FINIS holds the international patent on bone conduction technology, standard players rely on the transmission of sound through air or water, which causes the swimmer to hear distorted sound. Humans normally hear through air conduction, but because there is no air underneath the water, bone conduction provides the clearest sound quality possible. The sound vibrations can be directly transferred from the cheekbone to the inner ear, giving the swimmer the ultimate sensory experience whether engaged in training workouts or recreational activities.
