More tunes to rock your skull underwater

Swimmers' bone-conducting headphones get upgrade


It still sends chills up our spine, literally and figuratively, but the skull-as-speaker concept continues to make inroads in audio technology. And not content to take over our bodies on land, companies have been refining their products under water as well.

Two years after Finis' "SwiMP3" seized the aquatic world by the cheekbones, the company has updated its swimmers' headphones with a new pair dubbed simply the "v2." Aside from a slightly different design, however, Electronista says the most significant difference is more storage capacity (256MB vs. 128MB), as well as adding support for the WMA format. Call us old-fashioned, but we still like our music through the ear, not the bone.
