i got a recordable minidisc (sony) i use the in ear phones with only the left one in so i can still hear the traffic, i only have it around half volume, if i am going off road i have full on both ears..b1_ said:Do you listen to music while you ride? what do like to listen to? What's your player?
i find the opposite.. i ride in london some streets there are mayhem and that is not even rush hour..EnigManiac said:I am a huge music fan, but I never listen while riding. I ride on very busy and, often congested, city streets and find music too much of a distraction when you need to be alert to the dangers all around. Besides, with all the noise, I found I wasn't able to enjoy the beauty of the music. I'll enjoy my tunes on a quality system at home, after the bike is parked.
Solid state is definitely a MUST - especially on a MTB trail....bass said:I never go out without my music.
I used a 5GB creative zen micro player, but after 200 km's the harddisk failed because of the vibrations. Ive now gone for a safer alternative: the apple ipod shuffle. I guess solidstate is a necessity.
