SwiMP3 Underwater Player

Finis is currently shipping a unique digital audio player made solely for swimmers. Where most music devices rely on headphones that vibrate the air, the SwiMP3 uses bone conduction to register the sounds immediately on the wearer's inner ear. This provides superior sound quality, according to Finis, and lets swimmers listen to music underwater without concerns about water infiltrating the earpieces or rushing water noises interrupting the music. Controls are mounted on the back of the swimmer's head to avoid interfering with performance swimming. Music playback is limited to MP3s stored on 128MB of built-in flash, but the SwiMP3 works with both Macs and Windows. It can be found at stores such as Waterproof Music for $200.
