PostSubject: Music while riding   Mon Jul 12, 2010 11:04 am

Haha, all I post about is safety.

How many of you listen to music while riding?

I do. I'd like to listen to audio books but I can't work out the headphones properly to be able to understand and follow a book.

So for now I listen to music. I've tried a lot of headphones and helmet speakers with varying degrees of success. I can't seem to keep the "inside the ear" noise isolation type plugs to stay in comfortably. Maybe if I could find some that wrap around and work with a shorty helmet I will try them.

If anyone has any links or ideas of headphones I haven't tried, I welcome the advice.

Hi DuggleBogey,

I use a set of Motorola S9 Bluetooth headphones with my half helmet. They work well and wrap around the back of the head. They work with my GPS and my cell phone. $19.99 on ebay.

My wife and I have the Cardo Scala Team set. It is an intercom that lets her tell me to slow down. It is also blue toothed to my phone and has a wire connection that I use to plug my GPS with MP3 player in. I listen to music, my wife, answer the phone and hear the GPS directions very clearly. They have an advanced set over mine that allows bike to bike communication. I think I paid about $180.00 for our set. Been too long to remember.

Kim and I use Cardo Scala Blue tooth headsets, but not for music.

I have a Starcom system.
The headsets are very good and I think they also supply in-ears things.
I plug my iPod into it and have on it all kinds of music.
I listen mostly to Pop-sort of stuff, though, as most classical pieces have such a wide range of volume it's almost impossible to hear the complete work.
I've tried Talking Books on the move but they just aren't loud enough. They're useful to fill in time on the ferry and Shuttle, though; I'm working my way through the BBC's dramatised version of 'The Hobbit' at the moment.
Next will be their version of 'Lord of the Rings' - 26 half-hour episodes.

For music I listen endlessly to Abba and Queen - never tire of them.

I appreciate the sentiment Dale but I'm willing to risk the odds of this happening to me.

If I wanted to make riding as safe as traveling in my car, I'd just drive my car.

Yes, speaking as one who knows how easy it is to encounter another vehicle. If a speeding emergency vehicle runs a light, it could happen with or without headphones. Here in Arkansas, emergency vehicles are required to slow down at lights even when they do have the right of way. They don't have to stop at red lights, but safety is an item of concern for them as well as other vehicles. Sorry some one dies or is injured in accidents like the report you linked to, but responsibility is not always the scootists entirely.

This would be perfect if I had a bluetooth source to hook it to. Alas, I am stuck with wires at least for now.
