The latest innovation from Finis is the new SwiMP3 waterproof digital music player. The revolutionary design has broken new ground by allowing the user to enjoy his music underwater….without using earphones! Working on the same principle as some high-end Bluetooth mobile phone headsets, the SwiMP3 conducts the sound via bone conduction. The unit can be used with earphones if you prefer, and the sound quality is somewhat better with the earphones in place. But if you are after minimal drag or maximum comfort, eliminating the earphones may be beneficial.
