Me too! Beats the heck out of trying to anticipate what I want to listen to and loading up my measly 128K swimman.

Great Idea. Here’s some songs you can listen to while underwater:

“Drowning” - Backstreet Boys
“Harder To Breathe” - Maroon 5
“Comfortably Numb” - Pink Floyd

Entire Radiohead album “The Bends”

How many of us scuba dive anyway? It seems that there are similar shallow-water systems (lilipod, for example) that are avaliable for the fraction of the price for those who just swim.

Sure, this is good idea, but there is such a limited market and a prohibitavely high price that I doubt there will be many buyers.

i dont think im gonna use it to scuba dive, cuz the last thing i wanna do when im scuba diving is listen to music, but for swimming, that’s what it’ll be really good for.

i have one for diving. at first i thought i would not want it until i tried my buddys.  it is amazing. totally 3D feeling of sound.  combined with the great visual scene and being weightless makes it like being right inside the Imax movies. you guys gotta try it—it is incredible.
i can only imagine how cool when i swim or surf. that will be a blast. this is great stuff!!
