  • 5/5/2016 Awesome!

    5 Review Stars By Kelley Mc

    Gave as a gift to a lap-swimmer and he LOVES it! Holds a ton of music, battery lasts a long time and it's comfortable to wear.  It's a little awkward managing the skip function in use but once set, it's great.

  • 8/12/2013 Comparison to SwiMP3 and Overall Review

    1 Review Stars By George F.

    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.  In my case, its even below my swim cap so I really can't see it.
    (4) Reliability.  This is the HUGE con.  My Neptune is dead.  My Neptune was delivered on 8/1.  I didn't start using it until 8/4.  It wouldn't play any songs this morning 8/12.  In total, it lasted 6 workouts (11 miles).  I don't believe it is actually waterproof.  I can see a water bubble under the screen.  The pool I swim in is only 6 ft deep (max), so I couldn't have exceeded the depth.

    I am contacting Finis later today to discuss.  Will update when that conversation is done.

    4 Review Stars By Merry

    This was my second Neptunes as the first one died after two years of wonderful service. I had some difficulties from the outset. It didn't always charge and didn't always appear on the desktop. I contacted the manufacturer and was sent a new charging cable gratis. Still encountering problems I contacted the manufacturer again. I followed all of their recommendations and finally was told to send the device to them and they would replace it with their other product "the Duo". They claimed this model under review has been discontinued. My new Duo arrived a few days ago and I tried it out. The sound is good and it is less cumbersome. It consists of just the two ear pieces and will hold 1000 songs. My only complaint is that the ear pieces are difficult to attach and detach from my goggles.

  • 1/7/2014 Like the previous model and just as good!!!

    5 Review Stars By sjonesjrmd

    I had the previous version for 4 years. I swim 5000 yards 3 times a week for exercise. This version is an improvement over the previous. Recharges quickly, storage of a lot more tunes. Controls are much easier to manipulate, one charge lasts at least 4 hours. Color is great and the clips on the ear pieces are a much better design. Makes the time pass quickly during swimming workouts. Love it !!!

  • 2/25/2016 Great Service

    5 Review Stars By deb

    Great Service!! I had a problem with this electronic underwater player and called.   After I explained what it was doing, they didn't ask any questions and immediately sent me a shipping label for return/replacement.  I got the replacement in a couple of days, probably before the other one was delivered to them.  The new one works great and I couldn't be more satisfied.  It took me awhile to get the hang of transferring my iTunes after converting the songs that would work with this player.  In fact I may have corrupted the old player by loading the wrong format.  Don't know.  I'm just pleased to have a player that I don't have to stick an earpiece in my ear.

  • 10/24/2013 super product, yet...

    4 Review Stars By Tomas T.

    daily lap swim 1-2 hrs in chlorine/salt combo pool
    super improvement from early generations with Neptune's easy to read screen. I have used Neptune for 6 months now.
    former waterfi user(two years) and still use the last generation finis swimp3(one-year and counting). I use both generations of swimp3, because once i load my music i don't like to change until the weekend.

    I do this (honest admission coming) because I cannot figure out to load playlists or make them (even with the new Neptune) and that for me is  a drawback. I miss the convenience of loading itunes to waterfi's ipod. I know its a platform issue, but geez!

    But once on, it's effortless (i do like Neptune's control box) and always NO HASSLE with earplugs while flip-turning!!! You can't beat this product for convenience and cool-ness!

  • 12/22/2015 Bit difficult to wear

    4 Review Stars By TimeEngineer

    Initial set up and getting use to it takes a little time, once you get use to it every now and again atleast with my goggles it causes some suction loss inducting leaks

  • 7/26/2014 Takes the boring out of lap swimming

    5 Review Stars By Shana L.

    This is my second Neptune. 1st one I bought off of ebay and it worked perfect until I spilled nail polish all over it. :-(. Went several months thinking I wouldn't buy another. Now I'm training for a triathlon and the pool workouts are getting boring. I decided to buy another. Still works great (so far) and I found some old cds that I'd saved tons of music on and I'm transferring it to the neptune. Transferring can be tedious but oh well. Great for lap swimmers.

    5 Review Stars By Nancy

    This was a gift for my husband who is an avid swimmer and loves music. We weren't sure how well in would work but after six weeks of use are very happy with the outcome. He uses it everyday while swimming to listen to his favorite tunes!
