About Speedo
In 1914, Speedo was founded in Australia by Alexander MacRae, a 22-year-old Scottish immigrant who arrived in the country in 1910. The company began when MacRae Hosiery manufacturers, established by Alexander in 1914, extended the manufacture of underwear to swimwear and became MacRae Knitting Mills. A naming competition was held by the staff in 1928 and won by a Captain Parsonson, who coined the slogan, "Speed on in your Speedos." In 1929, the first swimsuits were in production and it didn’t take long for Speedo to successfully establish itself. World War II caused the brand turn over 90% of it’s manufacturing to war production, providing the armed services with vital equipment such as mosquito nets. After the war, Speedo opened a new factory and was able to re-establish itself, due to increased demand for swimsuits. In 1951, Speedo Knitting Mills (Holdings) Ltd, was incorporated and became a publicly traded company on the Sydney Stock exchange.

Speedo hit the international stage in earnest, at the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games, and a few years later the brand grew on a more global scale. Export sales to the USA began and an international division was set up to monitor trade in New Zealand, Japan and South Africa. The expansion of the brand continued, and in 1976, Speedo was appointed as the official swimwear for the 1976 Montreal Olympics, where 52 out of 54 countries wore their swimsuits.

Speedo continues to make its mark in the pool and on the beach today. Many world class athletes who wear Speedo include U.S. phenomenon Michael Phelps, legendary Australian swimmer Grant Hackett, world record holder Kosuke Kitajima from Japan, and Holland’s Inge de Bruijn.

Just wanted to pass along to other potential buyers and product researchers, that this MP3 player exceeded all my expectations! It is simple to use and sits snugly on the back of my head clipped onto my goggle strap. The sound is surprising! I mean I really thought that this player would be of cheap quality, but boy was I wrong. I have been looking at other under water MP3 players, but for the money, this one has them all beat. As the other reviewers have mentioned, the only thing that I found to be useless was the "over the ear" retainer clips for each ear bud. These may work for some, but depending on the wearers ear size and shape, it may not fit well. I removed mine and had no problems getting a seal in my ear. Keep in mind that these ear buds are made to stay dry and require a dry ear canal for the buds to work. They make an air tight seal with the rubber ridges on the buds to seal out any water. This may be uncomfortable for some, but it just takes a little getting used to. The sound is incredible once properly fit. Other conduction style models work by transfering the sound through your skull and not through your ear, however when you lift your ear out of the water while taking a breath, the sound drops out, which I think would be rather annoying. When these plugs are in, a small vacuum is pulled in your ear when the seal is made. As I said, this feels weird at first, but you get used to it easily. This vacuum seal almost completely blocks out any other sounds. This is great for listening to the music but may be a problem if someone was trying to call out to you. You will not likely hear them, they seal that well! All in all, I HIGHLY recommend this player to anyone who wants some music or a good beat to swim to. It will make your lap swims fly by. Cheers

I got this one because of the better reviews compared to the non LZR version, but I believe they are the same, except that the LZR one has 2Gb of memory instead of 1Gb.
Pros: the player is really small and light, it attaches very easily to your goggles and you don't even notice it. The sound quality was good, much better than what I expected. For some reason they sound much better when they are under water (I would not recommend them for running, biking, etc). The earphones are comfortable and very rarely did water leak in and had to stop swimming, dry them and insert them again.
Cons: the player doesn't have a shuffle mode, so you might get tired of the same sequence after a while, and find yourself manually jumping songs as you swim, unless you have the time to order the songs on the mp3 in advance each time you want a different sequence. But, the worse part was that one of the earphones stopped working after four times. Because I liked them while they last, I am tempted to give them another shot and buy another pair.
Btw, as people already noticed, the earclips only cause trouble (at least that was the case for me), so I just removed them.

I swim 1500 meters 3 times a week
I've always wanted an mp3 that could go under water, but never knew of any until I discovered this product
Since I've had my player I've been swimming between 2000 and 2500 meters 4 days a week. My workout is great!
The product got shipped to Montreal within two days. Excellent.
Very easy to set-up. Since you have no screen, it helps to use the Speedo software to make sure your songs play in the order you want them to play.
When I first used the earphones I was disappointed since I was trying to use them with the ear guides that are attached to the actual speakers. Those plastic guides don't help and prevent a proper seal. Once you take them off, you'll be able to push the earplugs in properly to create a proper seal. I recommend using a bathing cap that goes over your ears to keep them in place [...]
Warning: When you pull out the ear buds it happens that the rubber bud will stay in your ear. The first time I freaked out since I couldn't get them out. Since then I've learned to take out the earpiece slowly by moving them up and down to break the seal. I was thinking of gluing the rubber to the earpiece but I'm afraid to block the sound. Just go slowly when you take them out.
Blues works best to me when I'm alone in my lane and rap gets me going when I need to keep up the tempo when sharing the lane. To each is own obviously. Have a great swim!

After water killed two ipods in H2O audio cases, I bought the speedo aquabeat. At first I thought it was great. I swim 6 days a wk so in about 5 months the aquabeat died. It is still under the warranty because I bought it in Feb 2010. I emailed speedo aquabeat customer support they said to send it back and I would get new earphones. Well the earphones were not under the 1 yr warranty, the player was. It took forever but finally I got a phone call from someone w/an accent that I had a hard time understanding, i.e., "press the reset button." After testing the device he sent it to me. I was very glad to have it back even if it had Christian religious songs on it (what if I was another religion?) Anyway, after 5 swims it died again. He called me and told me to press the reset button which was in a hole so you could not even see a button. I followed his instructions. Played the device 2 hrs then charged it. The next day it did not even last a lap. I have written 3 emails asking them to give me a refund or a new one because it is under the warranty. No answer.
Sent it back again a few wks ago. As of 10/13, I have received nothing. I asked them to replace it since they won't do a refund or send me a new one. Their 1 yr warranty on the player means they will send a replacement!

It came back and now I use it when my Lavod MP3 player goes out. It has been working. I still have not deleted the Christian songs...
