FINIS launches new MP3 Player — The DUO

FINIS Inc., a worldwide leader in technical swimming innovation, is proud to announce the release of the Duo, an underwater MP3 player designed to help swimmers find more enjoyment in the pool by allowing them to experience music underwater.

FINIS first emerged on the underwater electronics market in 2005 with their first generation of a waterproof MP3 player, the SwiMP3. It offered patented and innovative bone conduction audio transmission that sent sound waves through the cheekbones to the inner ear to deliver high quality audio. TIME Magazine called it one of the top sporting goods items of the year. The second-generation, The Neptune, progressed the technology with increased storage capacity and a more functional design, which resulted in a Red Dot Design Award in 2013. Now, FINIS innovates again with the Duo, which features a lighter, sleeker design, faster syncing and crystal clear audio sound.

unnamed“The Duo is our 3rd underwater MP3 player, and is our best one yet. The crystal clear audio and simple interface, makes the Duo is a great device to help swimmer’s enjoy the water even more. I love using the Duo because I can go for a swim and listen to my favorite tunes, and after just a few songs, I’ve completed a great workout.”

–John Mix, CEO, FINIS, Inc.

Featuring a 7-hour rechargeable battery, the capacity to store over 60 hours of playback and a simplified interface that supports MP3 and WMA files (and is fully compatible with iTunes), the Duo is designed to take the swimmer’s workouts to the next level of performance. The IPX8 certified player also includes an integrated clip that secured to goggle straps for a comfortable and streamlined fit that will not interrupt the swim stroke.

“It’s no secret that music plays an important part in motivating us to go further and faster for longer, when it comes to sport. I love using the Duo on those long aerobic swimming workouts. I can push it to the limit, and before I know it, I’ve completed a 6km workout.”

– Grant Turner, British Olympian, European Marketing Manager, FINIS, Inc.
