I had a problem downloading all of my songs and I sent an email to Finis. A human responded w/in 24 hours with directions of how to solve the problem and it worked! Thanks for the prompt and thorough response.

Great when they work...

I love swimming with my Duo, BUT - and this is a really big BUT - they are extremely frustrating to charge and to load with music. There are dozens of these complaints on the web, and they often have to do with faulty connections. I have those problems, but even when it does connect (ie, the light goes on), I find it diffiicult to get the computer to recognize it to put more music on. It's really hit-or-miss. All in all, great idea, but the technology needs a lot of work.

I swim out of necessity. Lap training in the pool is not something I cherish. My waterborne activities of choice are outrigger paddling, freedive spearfishing and surfing. All of which require a strong ability swim. So I swim...... I am embarrassed say that my favorite part of swim training is when I can stop and get out of the pool. Enter the Finis Duo mp3 player. My initial impression of the Duo was that it seemed like old technology. I stream my music to my mobile devices. With the Duo I had to download music from iTunes, which reduces my library. Another downside is the quality of the sound. Don't expect Bose noise canceling quality with the Duo. However, after a month of use over 8 or so sessions, I have come to view the music provided by the Duo with appreciation and gratitude. I listen to music all day at work in my shop. I listen in the weight room, at the climbing gym, and now in the pool. My experience while swimming has been transformed. Thank you Finis.

Have been using finis headphones for many years. Tricks to keep them working. After every 6 hours of swimming recharge. Wipe contacts with medical alcohol swipe and dry with a towel before charging. When downloading new music make sure you have only mp3 files and trash bin is empty. Should work great if you do this. Best headphones!

Great sound and performance!

Earbuds never stay in your ears in the water and sound.. not great. Don't have to worry about that anymore! For those long sets having music you can actually hear is amazing to pass the time. I'm very impressed with not just the volume, but the quality of sound, too!
