4.0 out of 5 stars Waterproof MP3ing, 7 Aug 2009

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Speedo Aquabeat LZR Racer 2GB Waterproof MP3 Player (Electronics)
Been holding off reviewing this till I had actually used it in action, and I was pleasantly surprised. I used it two days at the weekend swimming between 1 and 2 miles each day in the sea.
Size - it is a lot smaller and lighter than I expected. The controls are pretty easy to operate (remember you'll either have it behind your head - as I did - or on one of your shoulders).

Wires - the earphone wires didn't get in the way of your swimming at all. The Ear attachments take a bit of adjustment to get right. On one try I ended up with a sore ear, on the other I was fine. (Remember your goggle strap goes over the ear and the earphones so you need a bit of adjustment to get comfortable)

Sound - the crucial part of any MP3 - the sound is pretty good on dry land and is reasonable in the water - you sometimes need to adjust the earphone buds in your ears to get it balanced - and I really don't think you can get rid of the background bubbles and splashing associated with swimming anyway.

Loading - reasonably easy if a bit slow to actually transfer the MP3s and the interface is a bit dated.

Overall, if you expect to be in the water for a long time, this is a good way to distract yourself and get the miles in.
