music while riding

do you think it would be dangerous to listen to a CD player while riding? i've never seen or heard of anyone doing this and i can't see it putting you at much of a disadvantage since the wind is deafening anyways.

I listen to my XM MyFi all the time when riding. I'm no less alert - of course, it's not loud enough to drown out other noises, either.

I'm planing on getting an ipod nano here real soon for that. I don't see it posing much danger like aliceinchains said if you listen to it low. But I dunno. I'm still up in the air about it

i listen to my ipod nano when i ride sometimes. i have the earbuds that actually go inside the ear. so it blocks everything else out. can be dangerous at times so what you do is your own choice. just be safe because you lose one of your senses.

I do it every once in awhile but only if I am riding in some back road twiesties. City riding I would stay away from it.

That's just it... I'm not using ear-buds. Right now, I'm using my -helmet with the behind-the-neck type headphones. When wearing my full, I don't listen to music.

Just ear plugs for me. I guess if I was going cross country ot something I would probably invest in a good set of in ear headphones.

This is probably a newbie question, but why ear plugs on the street? I thought you wanted to hear whats going on around you.

you wanna hear what matters. and earplugs allow you to hear everything you need to hear, but take all the background noise out.........mostly wind noise.

try it, pretty much every ride i wear earplugs........got them at CVS howard Leight, like 33db reduction.

I listen to my MP3 player all of the time. You guys saw me with it 3 weeks ago. That is cool to me. The music does have an effect of your aggression though so be advised.

This is a good point. I listen to really chill whenever im listening and riding. I rocked some hard stuff one time and got real fast-like.

I have a iPod Mini with one of the workout armbands, I strap the armband to my forearm and turn the iPod so the screen is visable at a glance pointed towards me. This set-up allows me to pause the thing when im approaching Chimney Rock on 59. Further, I find that when you get on the Freeway you can barely hear the headphones anyways.

I listen to my MP3 player through my Chatterbox and have my radar detector wired in as well. Never bothers me. I also wear earplugs which cut out the wind noise enough to allow perfect sound. I don't keep the volume too loud as not to be distracting. I do find that music while riding does not detract from any other noises that I need to hear.

I have some NRR 33/SNR 34 ear plugs here at work. I'll give them a try on the way home.

Is there any info on db levels inside a full face helmet? It would be interesting to know what an average level would be...
