The Best Waterproof MP3 Player For Swimming

by Pool Builders on 06-17-2010 in Articles

Whether you are gearing up to go to the beach this summer, looking for a way to make swimming laps more interesting, or perhaps desire some music to go along with your surf sessions, you may want to invest in a waterproof mp3 player. These personal electronic devices are generally about the same as normal MP3 players, except they have waterproof MP3 player cases. This, plus a set of headphones, is all you need if you just want to protect your MP3 player from a potential splash when you're sun tanning next to the pool.

However, you will want something more specialized if you want a waterproof MP3 player for swimming. In this case, you will want headphones that will stay in when swimming and also want to make sure that the sound quality will be of an acceptable level. Here, ordinary waterproof headphones may not do the trick. Alas, most of the waterproof MP3 players on the market are not built to withstand the pressures of going deeper in water, so scuba divers are out of luck here. There are some more specialized products that will allow you to dive and listen to music, though. There are even guided tours that play into your ear on dives!

Perhaps the best model of MP3 waterproof player for swimmers is the Finis swimp3 v2 waterproof MP3 player. This MP3 player uses technological innovations to use not sound, but direct vibrations against the bones of your skull to transmit music- a direct transfer. This minimizes the noise of splashing water, as when one is swimming, to yield a much clearer sound. These sit on, rather than in, your ears. Thus, there is zero chance of having them fall out of your ears while swimming, which is a common problem with systems that use earphones. The sound when out of the water is not that great, but it just might be the best one for in the water, especially when you are engaged in a physical activity.
