I had a 2G as well - it was better.
Looking forward to getting the Neptune. Hoping the craftsmanship is better than the previous 2 that I owned.
The 1G had it's contacts rust real quick.
Good thing is that Finis provided fantastic customer support, and replaced it. I asked nicely, and they shipped me a 2G instead.
That one lasted maybe a month and then stopped working. So Finis replaced that unit with another 2G.
Ironically, 9 months later the 2G died. When I contacted them again, they told me my warranty was up as the 2G's warranty was only valid for as long as my original 1G's period.
So now I am out $150 and my SwiMP3.
I only wish these things were less money. If they were, I would buy one for each of my kids as well... but an MP3 player for the pool at $170 that doesn't last even a year is just a bit too much to pay to give to a child.
That all being said - my swims without the SwiMP3 is just not the same - I really miss it. I hate how my Sony waterproof mp3 player plugs my ears (rubber seal). It makes me feel uncomfortable. As if that seal breaks and water gets into my ear, I can't hear the music that well.
The beauty with this device is that it doesn't even cover your ears at all... it just rests in front of them on the side of your head. You hear the music SO WELL. I was skeptical until I tried it myself... and let me tell you, IT WORKS AMAZING.
So on to the Finis NEPTUNE underwater mp3 player I go... hoping this time it'll last longer.
(BTW - I rate this product as a 5 start "must have" for avid swimmers - but since I've gone through so many of them over the years, and none of them have lasted me a year, I cut the rating in half for poor product quality, but and crediting 1/2 star for good customer service... 3/5 stars overall. 1 more star if the product was made better, and 1 more star if the product was priced properly...)

It is a great product and wonderful idea behind it, but it is not designed very well... plastic part on one side that is supposed to hold goggles strap broke right away, and the... Read morePublished on Jan. 6 2012 by J
