FINIS, a worldwide leader in technical swimming innovation, announced the release of the Duo – an underwater MP3 player designed to provide the highest quality sound in the water without the use of ear buds. FINIS first emerged on the underwater electronics market in 2005 with their first generation of a waterproof MP3 player, the SwiMP3. 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.
“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.
The Duo utilizes a sleek, two-piece design and Bone Conduction audio transmission to deliver crystal clear audio through cheekbones to the inner ear. An integrated clip design secures the Duo to goggle straps to rest on the cheekbones for a comfortable and streamlined fit. A simplified interface offers four buttons to easily navigate between songs, podcasts, audiobooks and other supported audio files. The Duo supports unprotected MP3 and WMA files. The included USB magnetic dock allows for universal data transfers and charging. The device offers 4GB of flash memory and a Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery life of up to 7 hours.
