Good looks does not always translate into good performance. When it comes to the QQ Tech waterproof MP3 Player, it is safe to say you get the best of both worlds. This is a nice looking player and its performance is solid.  It is very basic but it gets the job done.

Spend some time to test out the controls and it should be smooth swimming from there on out.

Sony NWZW262 Walkman MP3 Player

Sony has a reputation for making high-quality audio devices, especially their Walkman MP3 series. This waterproof MP3 player is as good as it gets and it is going to deliver on not only sound, but also on performance. Putting songs of the MP3 player is easy and it won’t take a day to try and figure out how to load them onto the device.

Diver Waterproof MP3 Player

Diver Waterproof MP3 Player

The Diver Waterproof MP3 Player is not the best looking on the list and the features are pretty basic, but guess what? It gets the job done.  There are 2 versions, one without a lcd screen and another with one. Playing songs are pretty straight forward and the sound is good. For those of you who use Itunes to organize your song collection, this MP3 player does not work with it, so dragging and dropping the songs is what you will have to do.

It is a solid player and if you purchase it, it won’t be anything awful. There are still others on this list that are way better for the same price.

  • 4 hour battery life
  • 4GB internal memory
  • Copy songs from computer to mp3 players

Nu Dolphin Touch Waterproof 4 GB MP3 Player

Nu Dolphin Waterproof MP3 Player

While a bit bigger than some of the waterproof mp3 players on the list, the Nu Dolphin Touch Waterproof 4 GB MP3 player has one big advantage; it is capable of playing FM radio. This can be good as you can listen to your favorite radio show as you do your swimming lengths. One downside is that it does not use the regular 3.5mm audio jack input.  So you’re stuck using the headphones that come with the MP3 player or you have to search high and low for waterproof headphones that work with the mini jack.

  • 8 hour battery life
  • 4GB internal memory
  • 1.5 charge time
  • FM Radio
  • Comes with waterproof earphones
  • Sounds good

Speedo Aquaebeat

Speedo Aquabeat 2

The Speedo Aquabeat is the last on the list. Speedo is known for making high quality swim products, but this mp3 player falls a bit short. Price wise it is one of the more expensive on the list and it has one of the smallest storage spaces around. You can get better value for your money with some of the other players. Other than that, the sound of the MP3 player is crisp and it can be easily attached to your swim cap or goggles.

  • 6 hour battery life
  • 1GB internal memory
  • Plays MP3 and WMA
  • Comes with waterproof earphones
  • Lightweight
