Here is what they don't tell you because they probably don't even know- the contacts on the unit are prone to mineral build up- to the point of no longer being able to connect or charge the unit. I've had conversations with their tech support department and they have sent me replacement chargers and even issued a RMA for a replacement. NO NEED- if you are having connection issues- here is the ultimate tip I can share...
Go to a hardware store and buy some CLR- the calcium, lime rust stuff you use for other things. Fill it in short glass just high enough to submerge the side with the contacts (only about 1/2 inch or so deep). Soak your unit for 4-6 hours and then rinse- the contacts are as good as new!!! I stumbled across this solution when I was using CLR to clean the spray nozzle of the kitchen that had a lot of build up- who knew. No more need for a RMA, and the unit connects to the dock (magnet or no magnet) every time (make sure it's dry of course).
As for their rubbing alcohol method with a qtip- tried it- does not work. But think about it- you wouldn't use alcohol to remove your mineral build up on anything else, so why use it on your unit you are swimming with?!
Other tips- loop just one of the 2 straps to the unit of your goggles that have double straps. That way- he unit is secure enough to be stable through flip turns but does not mess with your goggles leaking depending on how they are positioned on your head. In past versions and even in this one, my goggles are prone to leaking if I put both straps over the unit.
I have done the infamous Big Shoulders 5k open water swim and the monster swims (100x 100s on set interval) with this unit and never had an issue following the tips I shared above. I swim masters and hit about 4-6 practices a week depending on if I'm doing doubles for part of the season.
if your product is not working and you know there is something wrong with it that everyone is aware of of stop shipping it back to people. Also, why do you I have to pay for return shipping of your defected product? It is like a monthly membership program...
I used this for a few month, and now as I try to get it to charge it just won't charge. The best solution was a gentleman's idea of using a clip to hold it together and NOT move it. this worked, THANK YOU. Now it's time for some new music, different music.....l now my computer won't recognize it. There is NO icon to be found. I can't get it to work on any computer.
So here I am again....... saying DO'NT BUY THIS!!!! I don't like giving reviews like this. I really like the concept of it sitting on the bone, as I don't like things in my ears, I don't even like a cap over my ears when I swim.
So for now I swim w/o music. :( Until someone comes up with a better one, I am tired of messing with Finis. Sorry Finis you had a great thing going with your first one. I shouted that one to the roof tops and my friends bought it, this one I tell them not to.
Update, I still use a clip to charge it, even w/the stronger magnetic charger that FINIS sent. now the on/off button don't work. It does..sometimes. I will mess w/it before a swim, not getting it to work, only to come back and find it playing. :( This has been worthless to me.
3.17.17 I contacted FINIS, because again I had problems with my player. Finis asked me to send them the product. They (FINIS) sent me a new one. SO far, I have not had any problems. BUT today is only the 18th. :D I was able to get it to charge, it held well in it's charger, I was able to up load songs to it w/o a problem. It turned on and off well. It plays well... now if it will do all that while I swim. :D
MAYBE JUST MAYBE FINIS has gotten all the problems fixed. :D I up my starts to 3.... i'll come back in a few months and let you know what I think, as I swim w/it and keep playing with it.
7.5.17 - I am back for an update. Again it won't hold a charge, either that or the on off button don't work. I again can't get it to play. Dropping down to ONE star.

Seriously this is fantastic the only device which sounds louder in the water than out. Can hear plain as day. Works during Butterfly, Breast Stroke Front Crawl and Back Crawl, diving in and tumbling. Charge Lasts for ages (8-10 hours, over a week of swimming) providing you power the item off (depress and hold, the green light should not flash, if it does it's on pause and charge will dissipate without you knowing)
Two minor things, sort out the music you want and in order (I use Macs and had no problem with format of song) very clear and easy to use. If you are using certain types of goggles it may cause them to leak a little. After a little adjusting I can swim about 1-2miles solidly without any leaks. One thing is for certain better than ear buds and a cord strangling you while swimming. Far superior to all the other's and believe me I've tried them.
I hate returning something I purchased, but every now and then there is a product so bad that it feels like a scam, and this is one of them. I had to return them.
"Bone conducting technology" sounds very sexy, but apparently it's just a screaming little speaker encased in plastic that tries to be loud enough for you to hear it through your skull. Obviously, everyone around you at the pool will hear it screaming and obviously when you enclose a speaker into a small plastic compartment it will sound horrible. Imagine the worst possible sounding 30 year old 1£ headphones... These sound worse. There is no bass whatsoever, you can barely hear the muffled mids, only sometimes well enough to understand the words of the song, and it's all even worse when you try swimming with them. You can only hope that the water will completely fill your ear canals, so the screeching sounds stop and the tiny sound is able to get to your eardrums with less noise, but while swimming this doesn't happen and the water hitting your ears drowns out any chance of listening to music with these. You will hear just noise and the rest of the visitors at the pool will hear screeching.
The bones and tissue of your skull conduct sound as well as a brick wall, so if they call this "bone conducting technology", any speaker could be said to have "wall conducting technology" if you listen to it through a wall. In this case minus any kind of bass coming through.
I spent a lot of time fiddling with the positioning of these, hoping for a miracle, but it didn't happen.
I don't get it, every review with more than 1 star must be a paid review...
You can download music or podcasts and lots of them.
If you purchase on Amazon you need to contact Finis and they will send you a replacement charger unit by return European post, as these have the old charger that fails almost instantly. This is probably why they are a lot cheaper than the RRP.
I looked on the forums for help with this problem and found a flood of people who had the same issue and the only response from manufacturer was to send slightly more magnetic charging unit which according to most people had similar issues. So now I have to start process of return and replacement and hope that they have finally fixed this known fault.
