Review: FINIS Neptune

“I received my Finis Neptune MP3 just a couple of days after ordering on line – thanks heaps.

I had purchased a Speedo 4GB from a store in Canberra but returned it days later. The unit was extremely difficult to navigate around and the ear phones kept falling out and floating off in the pool. I hated it and it was more expensive that the Finis Neptune.

Neptune-Usage-b-2-LRHaving won the 2013 design award the Finis Neptune MP3 was a unit that I was eager to try. I swim laps almost every day for any hour which can get a little boring just staring at the blue line, counting my laps and thinking about work. With the Neptune I turn it on and immerse myself in the pleasure of the music and enjoyment of swimming.

You simply drag and drop to load on music, same as you would a thumb drive. I clip it on to my goggles or swim cap and press start – that’s it! The head phones are very comfy and sit on your cheekbones allowing you to still wear your earplugs to keep out the water – they don’t come off, move or interrupt your stroke. It’s so easy to use that you can change volume or song or turn off the unit while you are swimming. The sound is great.

I love my Neptune player so much that I find I’m wanting to swimming more often as it’s so enjoyable.

Thank you to the Aqua Shop (AUS) for such speedy service and delivering a great product.

I couldn’t be happier.

Neptune is a waterproof MP3 player that provides the highest quality sound in the water without the use of ear buds. Neptune uses revolutionary Bone Conduction audio transmission to transmit crystal clear audio through the cheekbone directly into the inner ear. With 4GB of storage, aquatic athletes can listen to music, audio books, podcasts and more, all with incredible sound. The included charging cable also allows for quick song upload to the device. The 3-piece design has 2 side speakers and a high contrast OLED screen that sits comfortably on the back of the head. The screen shows the song, artist and play status for each use. Neptune attaches securely to goggle straps and rests on the cheekbones as to not interfere with swimming technique.
