I have a Swim MP3 that is great for keeping me going...sounds improbable (sits outside the ear and conducts sound through the bone), but does work. It's certainly more reliable that the predecessor waterproof MP3 I had...the earbuds constantly fell out unless my hat was pulled down to chin level
As for being focussed on my swim technique...music doesn't stop that. it just gives the bit of my brain that says "mumble mumble gosh look another floor tile,mumble still thesame black line ooh how much more" something to focus on

I do complex mathematical calculations in my head to pass the time.
So do I....
Was that ten lengths or twelve...was that fourteen...oh I added them last time so will stick with twelve.....was that 18, 24, 30 etc. etc. etc.
I can't find my lap counter so i am having trouble......
to remember I have to do them in 8's.............and I have to sing the song..
so this is number 1 and the fun has just begun.....roll me over, lay me down and do it again................etc.......singing the same verse until i reach the end when I can then change to the next verse

no wonder you have trouble with your breathing and need a nose clip if you are singing as well
I've got a speedo aquabeat
Bought it last year, after christmas as I get bored quickly & I needed to slow down to work on stroke so put chilled out music on. I'm now replacing it with more upbeat stuff.It did break after 6 months, but replaced no problems, my have been a one off, who knows?The sound quality isn't great (better when head in water), but acceptable for what it is. If you push off the wall very hard or don't wear a hat then it may stuggle to stay in your ears.... that said I think I just have funny shaped ears as no headphones stay in when I run, but I've not had any problems with this - i do wear hat.
The thing is quite simple to operate just has a button on top for volume & one on front for on/off ffwd/back.
Hope that helps....
I've got a speedo aquabeat and have only ever used it twice...
It's OK but too much of a faff if I'm swimming before work.
Also pretty uncomfortable.
