Is Music on a bike an accessory?
I’ve been enjoying wearing a wireless headset while
riding my XB600.
I have it Bluetooth connected to my iphone and can enjoy
pre-recordings or streaming music from Pandora.
Fully enjoy the experience!
..and I find that I can hear and be aware of my
surroundings while riding.
Because I can press a button and answer an incoming call,
this adds to the flexibility of commuting and communicating.I use a Jabra BT8040 for a single ear mono experience..
They each have their place and benefits.With the Altec 903, I can press the right ear button and pause the music & hear outside sounds.
It’s great to have a choice depending on the situation.
Does anyone share the same experience or is it too
forbidden to mix music and riding?
I think that a) there's likely a good reason to be able to play music while riding, b) covering your ears with something like a headphone is probably a bad idea because you really really really need to hear the traffic around you
a VERY HIGH percentage of states in the USA have laws against wearing earphones over BOTH ears when operating a vehicle, and some even prohibit SINGLE earphones or "Helmet speakers"--I use loudspeakers, mounted in my Vectrix dashboard-similar to a car, works good, legal in all states, unless you play it too loud! (using illegal equipment can be a great disadvantage, if you are involved in an accident!)-Bob
