Product Description

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.

I spend 5 days a week 1-2 hours a session in the pool and find that training with music makes my training substantially more enjoyable. I have, however, had a challenging time finding a dependable swim unit until I started using this neptune.

I have gone through several different brands and models only to discover some hiccup with each model, which I do not have with this neptune.

For instance: I tried the underwater UwaterG4 from Fitness Technologies and was extremely disappointed. Yes, it was the smallest unit available however the ear buds fall out of the ear during flip turn and then stop working, then when I tried to replace the ear buds, I could only order from that specific company because of the screw thread that makes the ear buds waterproof. Every time I swam, I was needing new ear phones and it was a pain so I stopped using the unit. This experience cemented my decision to stay away from 'waterproof' ear buds. This unit also had issues with continuos play and I had to hit the start button after each song played which was so very annoying.

Then I started using the FINIS SwimP3. (The model before this neputne)

I really like the SwimP3 however I wished that it had a screen so I could see what I was playing. I love the jawbone technology and was very happy with this unit for the year that I used it. I currently use it as my spare now in the event I forget to charge my neptune.

Then I started using this Neptune and I have found it to be the perfect unit for me.

I do not have any of the hassle of the ear buds falling out or not working because this uses the same jaw bone technology as the swimp3 which I really liked. I love that I have a screen to see what song I have set and my repeat/random settings.

Most of what others have said are spot-on, but I wanted to emphasize two things: 1. if you swim breast stroke, this isn't for you. It works best when your head is underwater. When you breast stroke, your head moves in and out of the water, so the sound is constantly going up and down. And 2. if you listen to Audible audiobooks (which are "protected"), you cannot listen to them on this unit. These two things made it unworkable for me, but if you are a freestyle swimming music listener, then this may very well work for you.

I have used Finis SwimP3's since generation 1.

I loved my first generation product (blue and white). No glitches at all. Songs loaded up very quickly and hassle free. Yes, it had limited capacity, but I was only swimming for an hour at a time, so didn't really need that much space. When those finally died, Finis was on the second generation of the product (yellow and black). This one had firmware issues out of the gate and was not readable by a mac. When I got the new firmware onto the set, these too worked very well. Alas, these too died about three weeks ago. Which brings me to the Neptune System.

Pros:
(1) Songs loaded up like a charm. Copied over mp3 files from my iTunes library and they played beautifully.
(2) Sounds better than the old SwimP3. If you are old enough and remember listening to music on an AM station and then listened to music on an FM station, that is the sound improvement you are looking at when you move from SwimP3s to Neptunes.

Cons:
(1) Design. The ear pieces have clips that go from bottom up not from top down. Imagine using a clothes pin and pinching from above (SwimP3) vs pinching from below (Neptune). For me this is less sturdy than the top down approach.
(2) Design (2). The back of the head unit is bulky. It is a top down clip, but the back of the head unit is quite large especially if you wear a swim cap and wear the cap over your goggles. It's only a centimeter thick, but that extra centimeter makes your cap just that much tighter.
(3) Song Display. Do you really need to see the song title and artist displayed while the song is playing? If you are like me, you're swimming when the songs are playing and the unit is behind your head where you can't even read what song is playing.

I do a lot of swimming, at least three times a week and spend one to two hours at the pool and it can get a bit monotonous, so I have had a waterproof MP3 before and it was a bit lack lustre; this was because of the ear phones which did not always work whilst under water. If you are the type of person who swims with their head out of the water then the ear phone type will probably be better for you rather than this `Finis Neptune MP3'. This has head phones that are like sound pads that you attach to your goggles and they play through your cheekbone straight into your inner ear.

The MP3 part attaches to the back strap of your goggles and can be easily operated once you get the hang of it. There is also a play/pause button on the left ear piece which is more accessible. It is pretty lightweight too so there are no adverse effects to your swimming. The sound does vary and that is down to how you swim. If both ears are under water you get a very good sound reproduction, but not comparable to dry air quality. If you are say, doing front crawl then by necessity your head is going from side to side and this causes fluctuations in the sound. The best way to get around this is to wear ear plugs; this then means that you are getting uniformity of sound to both ears all the time. I find using the gel ones that mould to your ear the best as they are waterproof and re usable.

It holds its charge really well too but I did find when I first used them that I had put it on full volume and it could have still been louder. I adjusted the position to be around my jawbone axis and it was a lot better, also the addition of ear plugs made a marked improvement. It has a 4GB memory which is around 1000 songs unless you are into prog rock where you might get 3 albums on - only kidding.
